Immigrant Health Bill Passes Senate

The State Senate has approved a measure to expand health care for undocumented Californians. The “Health 4 All” Act by Democratic senator Ricardo Lara would expand the state’s Medi-Cal program for low-income Californians to include undocumented children. The bill would also let some adults qualify depending on funding in the state budget. The bill has been a top priority for immigrant rights and health care activists.
