ILLEGAL ALIENS. INELIGIBILITY FOR PUBLIC SERVICES. VERIFICATION AND REPORTING. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Makes illegal aliens ineligible for public social services, public health care services (unless emergency under federal law), and attendance at public schools (elementary, secondary, and post-secondary). Requires various state and local agencies to report persons who are apparent illegal aliens to the California Attorney General and the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). Mandates California Attorney General to transmit reports to INS and maintain records of such reports. Makes it a felony to manufacture, distribute, sell or use false citizenship or residence documents. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Annual savings at the state level potentially in excess of $100 million from withholding health and social services to undocumented persons. Annual savings at the local level potentially exceeding $200 million primarily from withholding medical care from undocumented persons. School districts would likely incur additional costs of tens of millions of dollars in the first two years of implementation and in excess of $10 million annually thereafter, to verify the legal status of students, parents and guardians. Savings to education, if any, are unknown.
