A March survey carried out by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California discovered that almost two-thirds of state residents help to offer protection to young adults who aren't legally approved to stay in the nation.
California has to turn out to be the first state in the nation to supply government-subsidized health benefits to young adults staying in the US illegally.
According to state officials, about 90,000 people are expected to be covered by the new plan, but not without a cost.
In order to participate in the program, it will also be necessary for the young adults to have an income low enough to qualify for Medicaid.
While this law is popular in California, not everyone in the state's government is happy about it.
The original plan pushed forward by the Democrats in the California Legislature would expand the coverage to even more adults. Newsom said during a speech Tuesday that the measure is an incremental step toward providing health care to everyone under the age of 26 and eventually to universal coverage.
Trump has publicly attacked Newsom's plans.
A national poll suggests that many Americans across the country are far less accepting of the notion of giving health coverage to those who came into the US illegally.
Newsom told a crowd of supporters at Sacramento City College 'we're going to get the rest of that done'.
He added "there's only so much money to go around, and we should be priortizing those funds for people who are legally here in this country. That's on top of the billions they already spend on them", Ingraham said.
The plan is similar to a part of President Barack Obama's health care law that Republicans in Congress eliminated as part of the 2017 overhaul to the tax code. "Everybody, not just some folks".
"It is shocking to see Democrat Governor Newsom openly prioritizing illegal aliens at the expense of the needs of the American citizens who elected him in the first place", wrote Tony Kvaric, the chairman for the Republican Party of San Diego county in a statement. And an estimated 14% of them are living in the state without legal status. But we may need an election to stop it, and we may need to get back the House'. "It's insane. And it's mean, and it's very unfair to our citizens", said the President.
