Sen. Kamala Harris, now running for the Democrat presidential nomination, says people in this country illegally should have access to public safety, public education, and public health — “period.”
Harris, a guest on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said “I support Medicare for all. It is my preferred policy.” She said she supports the bill introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Host Jake Tapper noted that Sanders’ bill says, “‘Every individual who’s a resident of the United States is entitled to benefits for health care services under the Senate.’ Not every individual who’s a citizen, but every individual who’s a resident.”
“So you support giving universal health care and Medicare for all to people who are on this country illegally?” Tapper asked.
“Let me just be very clear about this,” Harris said. “I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health, period.”
