New California Governor Gavin Newsom Proposes Health Care for Young Adult Illegal Aliens

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Newly elected California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom wants to expand state-funded health care to young adult illegal aliens.

Newsom made the proposal to expand Medi-Cal to illegal aliens up to the age of 26 during a speech on his first day in office.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

California would be the first state to cover immigrants without legal status who are younger than 26 through Medi-Cal, the state’s health program for people with low incomes. California already covers undocumented children until they turn 19, with Newsom’s plan increasing the age cut-off to mirror that of the Affordable Care Act, which allows young adults to stay on a parent’s health insurance plan until turning 26.

“It’s the right thing to do,” Newsom said in a Facebook Live feed announcing the proposal. “It’s the fiscally conservative thing to do. It’s the moral thing to do … When we talk about universal healthcare, it means everybody. When everybody pulls together, it means lower costs to each and every one of you.”

The new governor wants to institute a state mandate for health care insurance and increase health care subsidies for some families.

Newsom also stated his goal of “guaranteed health care for all Californians.”

The story notes the expansion of Medi-Cal to young illegal alien adults would cost $250 million a year, based on a 2018 legislative proposal.

Progressive Democrats such as Newsom are greatly contributing to the crisis at the southern border.

The promise of state-funded health care is a powerful incentive for migrants to take the risk of the long and dangerous journey from Central America to the U.S. and land in California.
