Activists Call on California Lawmakers to Provide Healthcare to Undocumented

Activists in San Francisco are urging state lawmakers to extend healthcare to undocumented immigrants. A panel of undocumented immigrants and healthcare advocates met to discuss a bill that would have made undocumented Californians eligible for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Undocumented immigrants currently do not qualify for MediCal or Covered California -- the state run health exchange. Nick St. Charles filed this report.
