Gavin Newsom's First Act as California Governor: More Healthcare for Illegal Aliens

Gavin Newsom swearng

He also called for the state's government to serve as a contrasting example for the U.S.in comparison to the federal government.

Building on the theme of California exceptionalism that defined his campaign, Gov. -elect Gavin Newsom will depict the state as a guardian of progressive values and a counterweight to President Trump in his inaugural address Monday, according to excerpts of his prepared remarks. He appointed Thom Porter the state's new fire chief. He later reposted his message with the word correctly spelled.

Trump has blamed California for its wildfires, saying the state hadn't done enough to clean up its forests - ignoring the fact that about 60 percent of California's forests are on federal lands.

"We should work together to mitigate these fires by combating climate change, not play politics by threatening to withhold money from survivors of a deadly natural disaster", Harris wrote on Twitter.

"We have been put in office by the voters to get things done, not to play games with lives", Newsom tweeted.

On Tuesday, shortly after being sworn in, Newsom - who ran on the proposal of providing healthcare to everyone in California, though he struggled to explain how he would pay for it - signed an executive order taking steps in that direction. "It's deliberate, it reflects intentionality, and it speaks to the priority that I place on emergency preparedness, response and recovery".

For the last two years, the state has allowed illegal immigrants under 19 to have access to Medi-Cal, the state version of Medicaid, but opening the door further would mean an additional 138,000 low-income illegals receiving benefits.

He gently scolded President Donald Trump's administration for reducing federal fire-safety budgets by $2 billion but also reached out to Trump. Jim Nielsen and state Assemblyman Jim Gallagher all represent a Northern California community leveled by wildfire in November. That was the deadliest and most destructive in state history.
