Joe Biden Believes Illegal Immigrants are Entitled to Healthcare
2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden stated on Wednesday that America has “an obligation” to dole out health care to “anyone” in need, even if “they are documented or undocumented.”
The former Vice President added, “I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of health care, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for.”
For that reason, Biden thinks “we need more clinics around the country.”
Biden also expressed doubt about President Donald Trump’s comments about the U.S.-Mexico border, asserting that visa overstays contribute more to illegal immigration than illegal border crossings.
The 2020 presidential candidate noted, “A significant portion of undocumented folks in this country are there because they’ve overstayed their visas. It’s not people breaking down the gates coming across the border. And so, the biggest thing we’ve gotta do in this is tone down the rhetoric. We know why it’s happening. It’s to create fear and concern.”
BLP reported that mass migration comes with a hefty price tag. Estimates show that immigrants consume taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year on net.
