Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) came out in favor of giving undocumented immigrants, who are in the United States illegally, access to health care and public education during an interview with CNN on Sunday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Harris about Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) Medicare for All proposal, which states that “every individual who is a resident of the United States is entitled to benefits for health care services under this act.”

Tapper then asked Harris, who supports Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal, whether this means she supports giving health care to people who are in the United States illegally.

“Let me just be very clear about this. I am opposed to any policy that would deny, in our country, any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health, period,” Harris said.
