Appearing on ‘Face The Nation,’ 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders claimed its “not “appropriate” to deport illegals even when they are not following the correct asylum process and skipped court dates.
This latest comment comes on the heels of another controversial statement from Sanders, where he said he would “absolutely” offer taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegals.
Per the Blaze, Sanders made the statement after offering remarks about his Medicare for All policy proposal at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials candidate forum on Friday in Miami.
“Literally starting yesterday, the insurance companies and the drug companies are starting to spend tens and tens of millions of dollars to fight against Medicare for All,” Sanders said. “And we will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care and at the end of the day we are going to win that struggle.”
