Sanders also told the group that Medicare for All and free college would extend to individuals residing in the U.S. illegally.
“Let me also say something of which I have gotten into trouble and people will criticize me for,” Sanders said.
“I am, as some of you know, supportive of a Medicare for All single-payer system and that means that everybody in the country has health care including the undocumented,” he continued.
“And mark my words. You’ll see 30-second attacking me for that,” Sanders warned before adding that he also supports providing illegal aliens with free college.
“And then you’ll see another set of 30-second ads because when I say I want to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, that also includes the undocumented,” Sanders continued.
