2020 hopeful Cory Booker claims that giving free taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegal immigrants is just a “common sense thing.”

The presidential candidate told CNN ’s Jim Sciutto that it was 'not a Progressive decision' when weighing in on healthcare for illegal immigrants.

“First of all, this is not a Progressive decision. It’s a common sense thing,” Booker said. 

In an attempt to justify his stance, Booker then referenced his time as mayor of Newark, New Jersey.

"I was the chief executive of a city. Do I want someone who gets sick with a potential communicable illness to not be able to go to a hospital and get treated, to potentially affect others."

"Do I want kids to not get vaccinated that are in my country?"

"We’ve got to have some common sense,” Booker said.

“We may think that shutting off people to any kind of access to health care is some kind of stuff stance, but it endangers our populations if we don’t have some pathway for people getting some kind of support.”

According to a CNN poll published on Monday, 59% of Americans oppose illegal immigrants receiving free health care, while just 8% supported it.

During the second Dem debate last week, all Democratic presidential candidates vowed to give free, taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants living in the US.

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."

Booker also complained that Americans "do not talk enough" about transgender people.

White House hopeful Booker argued that the United States needs a president that will talk about transgender people more, "especially African-American trans-Americans."
