35 California counties grant healthcare to immigrants in U.S. illegally - LA Times
In the L.A. Times, Soumya Karlamangla has reported on this:
"For the first time in its more than 30-year history, the panel that governs the program voted Thursday to offer primary medical care to people who have entered the country illegally.
'Even if these are not the most populated counties, for this to be available in nearly half of the geography of California is an important step,' said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California. Officials say a few thousand people could enroll in the program across the member counties."
