New California Governor Newsom proposed extending Medi-Cal, the state’s version of Medicaid, to illegal aliens up to the age of 26, rather than 19. Governor Newsom ran on the proposal of providing healthcare to everyone in California, although he could not explain how he would pay for it.  California will be the first state in the nation to cover young illegal aliens who are estimated to number 138,000. Newsom promised “sanctuary to all who seek it” in his inaugural address.  His budget proposes increasing the size of the subsidies for families who already receive them, and it would make California the first state to make subsidies available to middle income families. In order to force middle-class citizens to pay for the government handouts, Newsom is seeking to restore the individual mandate to purchase health insurance within the state, a law that was terminated at the federal level by President Trump. -GEG

California Governor Gavin Newsom’s first act in office was to propose extending state healthcare benefits to more illegal aliens.

On Tuesday, shortly after being sworn in, Newsom — who ran on the proposal of providing healthcare to everyone in California, though he struggled to explain how he would pay for it — signed an executive order taking steps in that direction.

In his first executive order, Newsom directed the state to create a single government purchaser for prescription drugs to increase negotiating leverage with pharmaceutical companies. Alongside the order, Newsom proposed extending Medi-Cal — the state’s version of Medicaid — to illegal aliens up to the age of 26, rather than 19.

The governor’s forthcoming budget, his office said, “will make California the first state in the nation to cover young undocumented adults through a state Medicaid program.”

That would cover 138,000 “young people in the country illegally,” according to the Associated Press.

“Undocumented young adults should not have to worry about losing their health coverage when they turn 19,” the governor’s office added, saying that the budget proposals, to be presented later this week, would defend Obamacare from “recent federal attacks” and “bring the state closer toward the goal of health care for all.”

In his inaugural address, Newsom promised “sanctuary to all who seek it” — a reference to California’s status as a “sanctuary state” for illegal aliens that refuses to help enforce federal immigration law.

That policy continues to be a lightning rod for national criticism after the murder last month of Corporal Ronil Singh, a legal immigrant and police officer who was allegedly shot and killed by an illegal alien during a traffic stop.
