From the Seattle Times, Oct. 26, 2011: "About 11,000 people who were kicked off the state's Basic Health
insurance program for the working poor in March because of their
immigration status will be allowed to re-enroll after a federal court
judge said the state likely had violated their constitutional
equal-protection rights. Nearly 1,600 are immigrants who are in the country legally but have
been "lawfully present" for less than five years; the others didn't
supply information to the state about their resident status in time to
avoid being removed from the program."
From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Oct. 26, 2011: "After state officials booted 17,000 people off Basic Health
in cost-saving move this year, a federal judge has ordered the state to
invite 11,000 of them to rejoin the subsidized health-care program. In a ruling Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge James Robart said the
state had violated constitutional and due-process rights when it kicked
thousands of legal immigrants off Basic Health in March."
