Description: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said on Friday that his Medicare for all health care plan and his tuition-free public college proposal would cover undocumented immigrants. “I will not deny that every country on earth that has a national health care program all have problems, that's the nature of health care and a changing technology," Sanders said at a candidate forum in Miami during the annual conference of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) on Friday.



"I believe that health care is a human right. When I talk about health care being a human right, last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings as well," he added. Sanders referred to a recent meeting he had with young undocumented immigrants in California who hesitated to apply to college in the U.S. due to a lack of financial aid. “We need the best-educated population in the world and that means we’re going to make our public colleges and universities tuition-free, and open that to the undocumented as well,” he said.

Description: WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. presidential contender Bernie Sanders proposed a plan on Monday to cancel $1.6 trillion in student loans and pay for it with a tax on Wall Street, elevating the issue in the 2020 debate and going beyond proposals from his Democratic White House rivals. Sanders, an independent U.S. senator from Vermont, said his plan would wipe out college debt for 45 million Americans and be funded with a tax on stock, bond and derivatives transactions that would raise about $2.2 trillion over 10 years. The proposal builds on Sanders’ longstanding call to make public universities and colleges tuition-free, an issue he has highlighted since his first presidential run in 2016. He said student loan debt was economically crippling young Americans. “This proposal completely eliminates student debt in this country and ends the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation, the millennial generation, to a lifetime of debt,” Sanders said at the unveiling of his U.S. Senate bill. “The American people bailed out Wall Street. Now, it is time for Wall Street to come to the aid of the middle class of this country,” he said. Other liberal Democrats, including presidential rivals Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro, have taken up the call and proposed smaller student-debt cancellation plans. Warren has proposed canceling $50,000 in student loan debt for anyone with annual household income under $100,000 and give substantial cancellation to those between $100,000 and $250,000. She proposed paying for the plan with a tax on wealthy families. The Sanders proposal comes two days before the first debates involving candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for the right to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in November 2020. Ten candidates each will meet in back-to-back debates on Wednesday and Thursday nights in Miami, Florida. Sanders appeared at a news conference with U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Pramila Jayapal, who joined him in proposing the legislation.
