Clinton Supports Extending ACA Coverage to Undocumented Immigrants
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, said during Tuesday's Democratic candidate debate that undocumented immigrants should be able to access some benefits under the Affordable Care Act. Clinton said undocumented immigrants should be able to purchase health plans through the ACA's exchanges. However, she noted that such individuals should not be eligible for the law's subsidies to help individuals purchase exchange coverage.
