Joe Biden Says U.S. Should Provide Free Health Care For Everyone Including Illegal Immigrants

During Joe Biden’s campaign event in California, the 2020 presidential candidate said that the nation has an “obligation” to provide free health care for every American, including those who came into the country illegally.

Biden made the big statement on Wednesday. He said,

“Look, I think that anyone who is in a situation where they are in need of health care, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for,” Biden said in response to whether illegal immigrants “should be entitled to federal benefits like Medicare, Medicaid.” He added, “By the way, a significant portion of undocumented folks in this country are there because they overstayed their visas.”

The former Vice President didn’t specify what type of care he had in mind. However, he went on to say, “That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.”

Biden’s opponent, Donald Trump, on the other hand, blasted illegal immigration at a rally in Panama City Beach, Florida Thursday, defending his use of the term invasion and alluding to the time he singled out Mexican ‘rapists’ during his campaign launch.

“How do you stop these people?” the president asked rhetorically. A woman from the crowd yelled out “Shoot them!” prompting Trump to joke: “That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement.”

Biden also addressed that topic during his fundraiser and said,

“The idea that we are just trying to scare the living devil out of the American public — ‘My God, hordes are coming,’ the way [Trump] characterizes it — is just simply wrong,” Biden said.
