On Tuesday, California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law AB 133. The law will open the Medi-Cal rolls of California to illegal immigrants 50 years and older. The move was referred to by Newsom as a “major milestone.”
California, the first state in the U.S. to allow the use of taxpayers money in funding illegal immigrants
California became the first state in the country to give taxpayer-funded health privileges to elderly illegal immigrants, as Gov. Newsom signed into law AB 133. During his announcement of the law, Newsom stated that California is investing its historic excess in changes that he said they have “dreamed of.”

The California governor added that this refers to the expansion of Medi-Cal in order to make sure that thousands of elderly undocumented illegal aliens in California can have access to health care services. Newsom also claimed that many of these elderly undocumented aliens were serving in the frontlines during the COVID pandemic.
The California governor later mentioned saying that he thanks the legislature for their stable partnership in bringing California closer to achieving health care coverage. Newsom also thanked them for developing comprehensive actions to make sure California communities come back from the pandemic healthier and stronger than before.
Newsom throws dirt on California's grave as he puts further strain on limited H2O and electricity resources with his lousy policies.

It can be noted that last year, the Democrat California governor signed into law the SB-104. This law expanded the healthcare benefits of people ages 19 to 25, regardless of their immigration status.
Meanwhile, the expanded Medi-Cal health care benefits that will be provided to elderly illegal aliens will cost taxpayers in California at least $1.3 billion. The new healthcare law will take effect next year in May. According to data, there are at least three million illegal aliens that reside in California.
Newsom is facing a recall election and at least 47% of California voters want him out
On the other hand, Newsom is presently encountering a recall election. According to the survey, 47% of voters in California agreed to remove the Democrat governor from office.
If it happens that at least 50% of California voters say that they want to remove Newsom in the recall election, a GOP challenger will more likely get the most votes and replace him in his role.
At present, there are talks that radio host Larry Elder is ranking the highest among other challengers of Newsom. The push to remove Newsom from office started in June. This was due to the strict COVID lockdown restrictions and mask mandates that the governor imposed, along with high taxes in the state and the escalating homeless crisis.
While many residents of California seek the removal of Newsom from office, others are fleeing the state. On top of this, Newsom also received extreme backlash after he was spotted in an expensive restaurant in California.
He was mocked for violating his own lockdown mandate and dining maskless with no social distancing in a gathering composed of a big group of people indoors.
