Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer wanted to opt out of the Medicaid expansion – until she realized it could give better medical care to Immigrants!

Arizona continues its war on immigrants by entangling Medicaid with its immigration fight. Officials from Arizona realized and explained in a set of memos that “If Arizona does not expand[MediCaid], for poor Arizonans below (the federal poverty line), only legal immigrants, but not citizens, would be eligible for subsidies,”.

Is the Governor this mean to immigrants because of her own values? Or is she pandering to an electorate that wants to punish immigrants?
