How would SB4 help undocumented immigrants in California?

Many in the United States believe that health care access should be available as a basic right. Unfortunately, if you are an undocumented immigrant, there is little or no assistance in place to help you cover the high costs of a doctor or hospital visit. California legislators are attempting to remedy this by proposing Senate Bill 4. According to the California Immigrant Policy Center, the goal of SB4 is to provide access to health care coverage that is similar to what is available to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

ICE seeking more assistance from local law enforcement

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents work for the Department of Homeland Security to identify immigrants who are living and working in the United States without the proper documentation and enforce deportation. California’s local law enforcement is not deputized to enforce immigration law. Consequently, a federal judge determined last year that it was not legal for county jail officials to detain undocumented immigrants who had criminal convictions and turn them over to ICE agents.

Benefits available through U.S. citizenship

There are a number of reasons that a foreign national might be interested in living in the United States. Not everyone who lives and works in Orange and Riverside Counties is interested in becoming a citizen, but the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services points out that there are many benefits provided by citizenship that are not available to those in the country in other capacities.

Scammers offer illegal immigration assistance for money

In Riverside and Orange Counties, many immigrants may have questions about forms and other documents required by the government to maintain legal status or achieve permanent residency. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services warns those seeking immigration help to avoid common scams promoted by people who are not authorized or accredited to provide immigration assistance. Signs, phone calls and advertisements on the radio, television and Internet are a few of the ways these dishonest people attempt to reach those who need legal advice.
