What is she trying to do?
Presidential candidate and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has released one of the most radical immigration plans to date.
Warren’s new plan involves the decriminalizing illegal immigration, increasing legal immigration and ending all illegal alien detention, minus those considered to be a “risk of flight or security.”
Warren’s team outlined the fat-left schemed, using fake stories on the immigration policies of the the Trump administration as a background to what fundamentally amounts to an immigration proposal for “open boundaries.”
Here’s what she plans to do:
Warren wants to decriminalize illegal border crossings. She aimed at section 1325 of the immigration code, which makes crossing the border illegally a criminal offense for individuals. She thinks it is “totally unnecessary for border security,” mainly rejecting the criminals who take advantage of the porous border , including drug and human traffickers.
Those convictions consist of sex crimes, murder, assault, violence against law enforcement, and a deadly weapon aggravated assault.
Regardless of that, Warren promised to “immediately issue guidance to end criminal prosecutions for simple administrative immigration violations; end Operation Streamline, which subjects migrants to mass prosecutions; and refocus our limited resources on actual criminals and real threats to the United States.”
“I will also issue prosecutorial guidance to prioritize immigration cases with security concerns, and make sure government attorneys are properly exercising their discretion for individuals who pose no public safety risk,” she continued.
Warren also plans to divide the relationship between law enforcement and immigration enforcement. She argues that immigration violations shouldn’t be handles by law enforcement because it makes people “less willing to report crimes for fear of revealing their immigration status.”
Warren says she will “significantly reduce immigration detention” and instead invest in “alternatives to detention”, such as ankle monitors.
In fact, the evidence in favor of ATDs is quite weak. In many cases, aliens simply cut off the ankle bracelets.https://t.co/NZDYMJFiFs

Warren’s proposal sounds more harmful than helpful.
