Lahren Denounces CA Health Plans

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren denounced the proposals of California Democrats to provide health care benefits to illegal aliens in the state. Gov. Gavin Newsom supports a plan costing $98 million a year to cover low-income illegal aliens between the ages of 19 and 25. A bill in the state Assembly would cover all of them above the age of 19 for an annual estimated cost of $3.4 billion. A proposal in the state Senate would cover those between 19 and 25, and those over 65.  

Lahren called these plans “infuriating,” adding that “They’re not arguing on if we should spend on illegal immigrants, they’re arguing over how much we should spend on illegal immigrants.”

Poll: GOP Voters Want Immigration Cut

A Harvard/Harris Poll found that building a border wall was the top priority of Republican voters, and reducing all immigration, legal and illegal, is second. The latter finding suggests that President Trump may have trouble with his political base if he continues to endorse the current level of legal immigration, now running at more than a million a year.
