During an interview on Monday, Senator and 2020 Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren said she does not think it should be a crime to cross the border illegally.
Warren said this during an interview with the California Nation podcast in which she discussed Section 1325 of the immigration code, which makes it a criminal offense to illegally cross the border.
“Are you in favor of repealing that?” Warren was asked.
“I am,” she replied, adding that “criminalizing” illegal entry does not make anyone safer.
“I think that the whole notion of criminalizing the approach to coming across the border without documentation is not making anybody any safer,” Warren said. “We just need to be in a different position on this.”
“It’s really important on immigration that we concentrate our resources on the people who pose threats to us, and that’s not children,” she continued. “It’s not mamas fleeing terror from gangs down in Central America. It’s not people trying to build a life who have family here.”

“We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future,” Warren said in late June. “We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that is in line with our values, creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants including our DREAMers, and protects our borders.”
This is insane.
For starters, how can we even have a country if we don’t have enforceable borders? No other country in the world operates in such a way.
Furthermore, how does Elizabeth Warren or any other Democrat expect to be elected President of the United States holding such a position. Are they trying to lose?
Most Americans overwhelmingly not only want stronger borders, but are desperate to fix our illegal immigration problem.
And Democrats can’t even begin to go there.
