Democratic presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said Sunday she believes that illegal immigrants should be entitled to free health care under the progressive vision of Medicare-for-all.

The California lawmaker made her comments during an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” who asked if Harris supports the language of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all bill.

“The bill also says, quote: ‘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,” Tapper explained.

“So you support giving universal health care and Medicare for all to people who are on this country illegally?” he asked.

Harris responded, “Let me just be very clear about this. 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.”

Harris adds her name to the docket of leading Democrats who support providing health care to illegal immigrants.

In addition to Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden — who is the clear frontrunner for the Democratic nomination — last week endorsed providing illegal immigrants with free health care.

Earlier in her interview with Tapper, Harris sought to clarify her position on eliminating private health insurance companies.

While she maintains support for Sanders’ bill — which Tapper noted would eliminate private health insurance companies — Harris confirmed that she does not support eliminating private health insurance companies.

Rather, Harris said she supports getting “rid of all the bureaucracy.”

      Right! She is not a constitutionally required “natural born citizen” for the offices of president or vice president! One must be born on U.S. soil to parents who are themselves, citizens. Her parents were foreign nationals when she was born in Oakland, CA.

    Actually the Republicans fault because nobody ran against her when she ran for Senator if somebody even my dog would have won, the problem was it was there was nobody who ran against her so we had no choice I didn’t vote for her we should have an option for none of the above one of these days in that way they can’t run it all if you don’t get enough votes and none of the above wins then none of them are worth a damn.

    What the hell does she care? She’s not paying for it. The American Taxpayers are paying for it. Me, and you, it comes out of OUR pockets.

    That would not be “Government Health Care” it would be TAX PAYER PAID FOR HEALTH CARE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY. Taxpayers would be required to pay for their healthcare. The Democrats love to give away the working person’s money. It is not Government money…it is the tax payer’s money.

    Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, Ca. in 1964. Her mother, from India, moved to the U.S. in 1960. Her Jamaican father moved here in 1961. They had not lived in the U.S. long enough to have become citizens, prior to Kamala’s birth. They were foreign nationals. They also divorced when Kamala was 7 and her mother took her and her younger sister to Canada to live. Kamala came back to the states to attend college. She is a “citizen” through the 14th Amendment, which does not and cannot make anyone a “natural born citizen”. She is not a constitutionally eligible “natural born citizen”…one born on U.S. soil to parents who are themselves, citizens.

      Born on US soil = natural born citizen as does ONE parent being a US citizen, no matter the where of birth. John Mccain was born in Panama and Oblabla’s father was Kenyan.

    Free health care. Boy THAT would make them NOT want to flood across our borders in droves. The government can’t even provide health care to veterans in a timely manner. How the hell are they gonna handle tens of millions of illegals. She is a huge part of the bureaucracy that she wants to get rid of. I’m all for that part of it.

    Another fine example of what you get when you don’t ‘have time to vote’ against leftist democrat politicians in your district.

    Clearly the demoncraps are desperate to gather bodies to occupy the ever shrinking dependent welfare class who were the now ‘woke’ black voters who are finally aware of the FACT that voting democrat for generations has put / kept them on welfare all this time, with their empty promises. So, now they turn to ILLEGALS with their promises of free housing (how about the thousands of homeless CITIZENS in LA over the illegals getting free housing?), free health care, free school, college, money for nothing, etc.
