Elizabeth Warren Thinks Crossing the Border Illegally Shouldn’t Be a Crime

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.”

Warren has called for illegal immigration to be decriminalized before

This is not the first time Warren has made similar statements.

“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.

  • There were more than 730,000 criminal aliens in U.S. or state prisons and local jails during the period measured. They accounted for 4.9 million arrests for 7.5 million offenses. (The numbers, according to the GAO: 197,000 criminal aliens in federal prisons, arrested 1.4 million times for 2 million offenses, between 2011 and 2016; 533,000 in state or local facilities between 2010 and 2015, representing 3.5 million arrests for 5.5 million offenses.)The arrests include allegations of more than 1 million drug crimes, a half-million assaults, 133,800 sex offenses and 24,200 kidnappings. Even more serious, the imprisoned illegal immigrants, over a five-year period, had been arrested for 33,300 homicide-related offenses and 1,500 terrorism-related crimes.In terms of cost, federal taxpayers shelled out more than $15 billion during the period studied — or $2.5 billion a year — to keep criminal aliens behind bars in federal, state and local facilities.Many are repeat offenders. Of about 146,500 criminal aliens who finished a federal prison term, about one in six, around 24,800 — already had been imprisoned again at least once.Sanctuary cities and states do not allow police to ask if the person is in the country illegally. It is possible millions of crimes committed by illegal aliens are under reported. These are the people
    Warren wants us to live with.

  • The states of New York and California would be go bankrupt the
    day the Goverment quits paying them for the illegal aliens that the
    rest of the country is being force to support.

  • Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

  • Get these Communists, Socialists and Islamic extremists out of our FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

    THAT ENEMIES TO OUR REPUBLIC, OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND OUR PEOPLE, ARE SITTING IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, IS AN ACT OF TREASON. NOT ONE OF THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE EVER BEEN ALLOWED TO RUN FOR OFFICE IF THE FORMER ADMINISTRATION HAD HONORED THEIR FIRST AND FOREMOST DUTIES, AND OATHS OF OFFICE, "TO PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION AND REPUBLIC FROM "ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC".

  • So basically this LOON wants us to be Europe--NO borders--just let the barbarians come STREAMING in--no assimilation--just make themselves at home and continue speaking their OWN language and living according to their OWN culture--until we are overrun with them, and they have managed to transform OUR country into what they were running away from in their OWN? I think not!

  • It wasn't tuition--she claimed to be "native American" to get a CUSHY job that was earmarked for a "minority" candidate to be Harvard's "token" minority, so they could point to that person and brag about how "diverse" their staff was. But since she GOT that cushy job--$400K a year for teaching ONE class--she SHOULD return all the pay she got from Harvard with that scam.

    Harvard's tuition is outrageous--so they have the money to pay $400K for teaching a SINGLE class, which they intended to bestow upon ONE TOKEN minority faculty member!

    I also heard ANOTHER news story about how many politicians' kids are admitted--despite the supposedly extremely RIGOROUS academic requirements to attend one of these chi-chi Ivy League colleges like Harvard or Yale. You just KNOW that is a rigged deal--because I KNOW that Chelsea Clinton could not POSSIBLY be smart enough to get into Harvard on her own! The SAME is likely true of the Obama girls--one of whom is attending Harvard!

  • Amen to that! In fact, NO conniving Demmunist should be trusted anywhere NEAR political power at any level, because the ONLY thing they can be trusted to do with it, is ABUSE it.
