Most San Joaquin Valley residents oppose expanding affordable health coverage to include undocumented immigrants, according to a report presented at Thursday’s Merced County Health Care Consortium meeting.

The voting poll, conducted by the California Endowment’s Healthy California Program, shows that in the state, 54 percent of Californians support expanding coverage for all, but only 44 percent in the San Joaquin Valley support the idea.
