Operative word here being "was".
Nowadays, though, they're doing shit like this: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/california-democrats-full-health-benefits-illegal-immigrants-trump
"In a stance to distance itself from President Trump’s administration, California is set to become the first state in the country to pay for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to have full health benefits."
To pay for part of it, the state agreed to start taxing people who don’t have health insurance.
Basically, they're going to tax legal residents who don't have health coverage so they can give health coverage to people who aren't even supposed to be here.
California deserves every shitty thing that happens to it...
