Migrants Going To CA May Get Massive Benefit Upgrade

Reports indicate that the four persons wanted for allegedly assaulting police officers in New York City have escaped to California, a state renowned for its sanctuary policies.

The men’s repatriation to California for prosecution or the role of DHS in their deportation is still out in the air, as is the level of cooperation between the two states.

Supporting the deportation of migrants by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents is illegal for state police in California. Most importantly, illegal immigrants can also participate in several government-run programs.

The governor of California, Gavin Newsom, said in January that an extra 764,000 people who are not citizens would be able to get health insurance through the state’s expansion program. Medi-Cal is California’s version of Medicaid, and this would add another 1.1 million people to its coverage.

Beginning in 2015, California started accepting undocumented immigrants into its Medi-Cal program. Undocumented children were granted eligibility that year. Individuals whose ages were 50 and up were enrolled after four years.

Thanks to the expansion, undocumented immigrants can now use government money to get hormone and sex-change procedures.

Californians will have to fork out an estimated $3.1 billion to cover the health care costs of almost 700,000 people eligible for federal programs as of January 1st, whose ages range from 26 to 49. Medical coverage subsidies, paid for out of the state’s general fund, would amount to about $4,058 annually for individuals in this age bracket living in California without legal status.

Additionally, undocumented immigrants may be eligible for state university financial aid and in-state tuition prices.

Individuals 55 and older who were previously not eligible to receive food benefits are now eligible according to recent changes to the state’s federally sponsored food assistance program, CalFresh.

There have been reports that four migrants who were apprehended and then released for allegedly assaulting two police officers near Times Square in New York City had escaped to California.

The police believe the group boarded a bus bound for California on Wednesday by giving a nonprofit affiliated with a church bogus names; the organization helps migrants leave New York City.
