en. Bernie Sanders told a group at a fundraiser that he backs a moratorium on all deportations from the U.S., a video surfaced on Saturday revealed. The Senator told a group that, under a Sanders administration, the U.S. would cease ICE raids and deportations.

We’re gonna end the ICE raids which are terrorizing communities all across this country. We are gonna impose a moratorium on deportations . . . There are some things that a president can do with executive orders.

The latter is a new policy position, according to a senior policy adviser who spoke to CNN’s Annie Grayer: Sanders also told the group that Medicare for All and free college would extend to individuals residing in the U.S. illegally.

I am, as some of you know, supportive of a Medicare for All single-payer system and that means that everybody in the country has health care including the undocumented . . . When I say I want to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, that also includes the undocumented.
