Dem Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren wants open borders. She feels it is not keeping us any safer to force people to have documentation to come here. She said as much during an interview on a Californian Podcast.
“Q: Section 1325 of the immigration code makes it a criminal offense for people crossing the border without documentation. Are you in favor of repealing that?
A: I am. I think that the whole notion of criminalizing the approach to coming across the border without documentation is not making anybody any safer. 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. 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 answered.
It is amazing that Dems can feel this way. There is plenty of data that shows the importance of vetting migrants.
“Out of the nearly 8,000 members within a caravan that reached south of California in October 2018, ICE Homeland Security Investigations found that 660 already had run-ins with the law in the U.S.
Of those, nearly 40 were convicted of assault or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Three of them were convicted for murder.
ICE Homeland Security Investigations also tracked a migrant caravan from Honduras in January 2019. Of the more than 3,300 individuals in the caravan, 860 were found to have criminal histories in the U.S., including 30 convicted of sexual offenses, 20 convicted of assault and aggravated assault and one convicted of attempted murder.”
She is completely disregarding drug trafficking, gangs members, and other bad elements that the vetting prevents from coming into our country. It seems that the Democrats are more concerned about the welfare of migrants than Americans. It’s ridiculous as they are supposed to be running to serve as our president, not Mexico’s or any other Latin American country.
