Rep. Ilhan Omar believes America bears the responsibility to provide abortions for illegal immigrants.
At first, Democrats said it should not be a crime to illegally cross the border in the United States. Next, they said we should provide free healthcare for all illegal immigrants. And just when you thought they couldn’t go further off the ledge, the Minnesota Democrat drove the party straight off a cliff.
No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care.https://t.co/bGuaS64HkL

Other members of “the squad” have claimed to be in favor of this policy as well.
When The Federalist contacted Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s office, they said that while the Massachusetts congresswoman hasn’t taken an outright stance on abortion for illegal immigrants, she does support legislation that would improve the ability for women to access abortion.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s office said the congresswoman from Michigan was in favor of providing abortion for illegal immigrants when they come to the U.S.
The office of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not respond in time for publication.
Three of the four members of “the squad” believe that if you enter the country illegally, you should have access to federal taxpayer dollars and abortions.
This policy proposal is not only incredibly improbable, but it’s also incredibly out of touch with the American people.
The latest Gallup Poll asked people what they thought was the most important problem facing America. The answer was overwhelmingly immigration.
Twenty-seven percent of Americans, the highest of any category, believe immigration is the biggest problem facing the country. The American people want solutions to the crisis at the border, not to open up abortion clinics for illegal immigrants.
Yet no one in the mainstream media is questioning this proposition. They are so adamantly pro-abortion and pro-Democrat that they refuse to question policies that fall in line with their narrative.
As the second round of Democratic debates approaches on July 30 and 31, it will be interesting to see if CNN asks the 2020 candidates if they favor such an outlandish policy proposal as this one.
