Oregon Senate Approves Medical Coverage For Immigrant Children

The Oregon Senate voted Monday to extend health insurance coverage to children who are in the country illegally.

The $36 million dollar plan would enroll those children in the state’s Medicaid program.

Opponents said the proposal rewards parents who bring their children to the U.S. without authorization. They also questioned the price tag.
