Illegal Aliens Will Qualify for Taxpayer-Funded ‘Free’ Healthcare in California from Jan 1


by David Lindfield, Slay News:

The Democrat-controlled, crime-infested, cash-strapped state of California will begin the new year by giving illegal aliens taxpayer-funded “free” healthcare.

California will offer “free” healthcare, under the state’s socialist government-run health insurance program, to all qualifying foreign nationals who illegally crossed the border.

The state currently faces a $68 billion deficit in the next fiscal year.


Nevertheless, it has been steadily expanding access to its Medi-Cal health insurance program for low-income residents.

In 2015, the scheme was expanded to allow undocumented children to qualify for the taxpayer-funded program.

It was then expanded further under Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom to cover undocumented adults between the ages of 19-25 and those over 50.

On January 1, California will become the first state to offer free healthcare to all qualifying individuals — regardless of immigration status or age.

In May, Democrats in the California Legislature celebrated the budget deal struck by Newsom and state lawmakers.

The deal led to the latest Medi-Cal expansion, which will see some 700,000 undocumented immigrants, ages 26-49, obtain full coverage under the program.

California Democrats have been celebrating the move.

“This historic investment speaks to California’s commitment to health care as a human right,” state Sen. María Elena Durazo (D-Los Angeles) said at the time.

“This is a game-changer,” said Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles).
