Both houses of the California Legislature have voted to lift the requirement of legal residency in the state to be eligible to receive the state version of Medicaid, adding to the state’s growing list of policies favoring illegal immigrants.

The legislation would expand to adult illegal immigrants coverage that was extended by Brown, a Democrat, in 2015 to children regardless of immigration status.

But opponents of illegal immigration are taking California lawmakers to task over the proposal, saying that it was just the latest example of the state’s weak policies toward illegal immigrants.
