2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg has been causing a stir recently by pushing positions many conservatives gag over.
In Utah, Buttigieg argued that illegal DACA recipients have every bit of claim on this country as the rest of us which includes free healthcare.
In Las Vegas, Buttigieg warned a Black Law Students Association at UNLV that we could see “white supremacy totally destroy the American project.”
Breitbart reports Buttigieg was speaking as part of a four-day swing though the Silver State during early voting in the Nevada caucuses, which officially take place Feb. 22.
The event was hosted by BLSA but open to others at the William S. Boyd School of Law. Buttigieg, who is currently leading the national race for delegates to the Democratic National Convention, answered questions from Prof. Frank Cooper, Director of UNLV’s Program on Race, Gender & Policing. The topics covered a wide range of issues, and included criminal justice reform and drug legalization.
At one point, Buttigieg pledged to end the policy of “family separation” at the U.S. border — though that policy had already been ended by President Donald Trump via executive order nearly two years ago.
Meanwhile, per TCO, at a recent campaign rally in Utah, Pete Buttigieg argued that illegal DACA recipients have every bit of claim on this country as the rest of us which includes free healthcare.
A DACA recipient asks Buttigieg how he’d fix access to health care for the undocumented like her.
He told her “first of all, this should go w/o saying but it’s important to say out loud, that I regard you and all DACA recipients as American as I am or anybody else in this room.”
Breitbart reports former Mayor Pete Buttigieg repeated his claim Monday that the United States of America belonged to illegal immigrants, just as much the country’s citizens.
At a campaign rally in Utah, Buttigieg said that the so-called “dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought to the country as children, had “every bit a claim on this country as the rest of us.”
He continued in Spanish, which translated to English meant, “We should tell dreamers that we support them, and we understand that this country is your country too.”
Buttigieg has stepped up his use of Spanish and his political support for amnesty and taxpayer-funded health care for illegal immigrants as he tries to place well in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday.
Earlier Monday, Buttigieg told voters in Nevada that the legal immigration system was not allowing enough people into the country.
“This county needs more people than its immigration system is willing to allow,” he said. “So what happens? The people come, but then they are endangered of all of the uncertainties of being undocumented in this country.”
