Every 2020 Democrat Vows to Give Illegal Immigrants Taxpayer-Funded Health Care
All Democratic presidential candidates make free health insurance pledge during Dem debate
During the second Dem debate on Thursday night, every single Democratic presidential candidate vowed to give free, taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants living in the US, should they win the election.
When asked whether they would pledge to give illegal aliens government health insurance, every 2020 Democrat on the stage raised their hand.
The group of ten candidates was asked if “undocumented immigrants” should receive health coverage paid for by the American taxpayer.
The declaration prompted the only Twitter response from President Donald Trump during the debate, to which he said they should be "taking care of American Citizens first."
All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2019

“A lot of you have been talking about government health care plans you proposed in one form or another,” moderator Savannah Guthrie asked.
"This is a show of hands question and hold them up so people can see.
"Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants."
All ten Democratic candidates raised their hands in support of the proposal.
According to the Daily Caller, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders previously said that his “Medicare for All” plan would cover the approximately 11 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States.
Sanders’ health care plan would reportedly cost trillions of dollars over the course of a decade.
The first three Democratic candidates who spoke at the second night of the Democratic debates on Thursday night admitted that they would raise taxes on Americans to pay for their government proposals.
President Donald Trump reacted to the moment on Twitter, writing, “All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare.
"How about taking care of American Citizens first!?
"That’s the end of that race!”
