[Ed. – She reiterated this during last night’s debate.]
Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday she would be in favor of decriminalizing illegal crossing of the U.S. border, the latest call for open borders by a 2020 presidential candidate.
Warren joins former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama and 2020 presidential candidate Julián Castro, who also believes immigration courts should be the only ones with legal control over immigration enforcement at the border, according to HuffPost.
“I agree with Secretary Castro,” Warren said in a statement to HuffPost. “We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future. 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.”
