 Buttigieg: Illegal Immigrants Should Have Access To Obamacare

On Sunday, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told a group of supporters that he favors allowing illegal immigrants to have access to Obamacare, stating, “As you know, in the Affordable Care Act, one of the many missing pieces that it has is that the exchanges are not available to the undocumented. I would change that.”

Buttigieg was speaking at a private home in Henderson, Nevada, at a “fireside chat” event hosted by Planned Parenthood, according to The Nevada Independent. He stated, “I know that all the sizzle in the debate right now is about Medicare for all versus the alternatives … And of course, I think my plan is the best plan. But, it doesn’t so much matter if you’re covered if you can’t get access.”

Buttigieg also reportedly stated to a DACA recipient, “First of all, this should go w/o saying but it’s important to say out loud, that I regard you and all DACA recipients as American as I am or anybody else in this room.”
