Ricardo Lara is a California state senator. He is, at least in theory, the state senator from Bell Gardens. In actual practice he is more often the state senator representing Mexico. He has just proposed SB1005 which would, if passed into law, expand Medi-Cal to cover illegal aliens. I don’t think it will cost him anything politically as his constituency (at least his official constituency) seems to have no trouble spending taxpayers money to make life more comfortable for illegal aliens at taxpayers expense. I did, however, think you should know about it.
