Immigrant Youths are Improperly Denied Medi-Cal

Some undocumented youths who qualify for Medi-Cal health care under California’s new health reform laws are being wrongfully turned away by county eligibility workers. Democratic Assemblymember Richard Pan joined health care and immigrant rights advocates in Sacramento to call on the state to clear up the problem that could affect as many as 125,000 undocumented youths in California. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
