California KidsWell Partners Applaud President Obama’s Executive Action

CA: The California Children’s Health Coverage Coalition, which includes KidsWell Partners Children Now, Children’s Defense Fund-California, and PICO California, issued a press release applauding President Obama’s Executive Action on immigration. The press release notes that nearly one in six children in California has an undocumented parent and that under California law, lawfully present, low-income immigrants are eligible for Medi-Cal. The Coalition is monitoring how the President’s action will impact current efforts in the state legislature to expand health coverage.
