If you're an illegal immigrant, Americans are "obligated" to pay your healthcare bills, according to 2020 Presidential hopeful Joe Biden at a campaign stop in California on Wednesday.
Biden said, "I think that anyone who is in a situation where they're in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for. That's why I think we need more clinics around the country."
Never mind the fact that immigration arrests at the Southern border are at an all time high. Biden thinks anyone who violates our immigration law is entitled to free healthcare.
Biden also claims most illegal immigrants are only here because they overstayed their visas.
"It's not people breaking down gates coming across the border," Biden said.
Last month U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained 109,144 migrants at the Mexico border. That's up 6% from the previous month and the number of illegal immigrants crossing our border is more than twice what it was the previous year.
We're literally talking about millions of people. Can we afford to pay for all of their healthcare?! We're $22 trillion in debt.
Joe Biden is out of his mind.
