Do you want to subsidize health insurance for illegal aliens with your tax dollars in California? Yesterday the California Assembly Health Committee approved Senate Bill (SB) 10 to require the state to request permission from the federal government to include illegal aliens onto California’s health insurance exchange created under Obamacare. SB 10 will next be voted on by the full Assembly.

We need your help to stop this bill! With your help last year, we were able to stop similar legislation from being enacted in California. Please call your representatives in the Assembly today and tell them to oppose SB 10! Tell these elected officials:

  • Including illegal aliens onto California’s health care exchange will encourage further illegal immigration to the state. California already has the highest population of illegal aliens in the country and illegal immigration reduces quality of life in the United States.
  • California taxpayers already pay over $25.3 billion annually in costs associated with illegal immigration. Because federal law does not allow federal money to be spent on public benefits for illegal aliens, SB 10 will require California taxpayers to completely front the bill for SB 10, costing California families even more.
  • SB 10 will reduce quality and access to medical services in the state by drastically increasing demand.
  • California lawmakers should prioritize the health and welfare of its citizens and legal residents instead of rewarding lawbreakers.

Please act now! Call or email your representatives in the Assembly and urge them to oppose SB 10! Only with your help can we stop this bill. Click here to find the contact information for your representatives.
