California counties cut healthcare to illegal immigrants
Forced to slash their budgets, some California counties are eliminating nonemergency health services for illegal immigrants—a move that officials acknowledge could backfire by shifting the financial burden to emergency rooms. Sacramento County voted in February to bar illegal immigrants from county clinics at an estimated savings of $2.4 million. Contra Costa County followed last month by cutting off undocumented adults, to save approximately $6 million.
