Democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders spoke to supporters in San Antonio, Texas Saturday amid the Nevada Democrat primary caucus projecting him as the winner over his Democratic rivals.
While speaking to the audience, however, Sanders told them that illegal aliens are “entitled” to the same “basic human rights” as legal citizens.
“Today we have 500,000 sleeping out on the streets of America,” Bernie Sanders said. “Today we have 18 million families paying 50% of their limited income for housing.”
“Today we have hundreds of thousands of bright young people who cannot afford to get a higher education. Today we have 45 million people paying a student debt that many of them cannot afford pay,” he continued.
Sanders went on to declare: “So what our campaign is about and what our administration will be about is rethinking America– understanding that all of our people– when I say all, I also mean the undocumented in this country– that all of our people are entitled to basic human rights.” [Emphasis added].
During the first Democratic debate in June 2018, every candidate on stage had raised their hand to support healthcare for illegal aliens. President Trump immediately took to Twitter to write: “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!”
Upon Sanders winning the Nevada caucus on Saturday, President Trump congratulated the Democratic socialist for his victory.
“Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!” President Trump tweeted. (Video Below)
