Simple administrative immigration violations;    

 

SIMPLE ----it's SIMPLE to understand why.....to tie up our courts where it costs even more and detains people even LONGER.

@JANMB @rker321 , are you denying that Elizabeth Warren said; 

 

“We should repeal this criminal prohibition to prevent future abuse. As president, I will 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,”

jimc91 = 

 

NO OPEN BORDERS......NO ONE has suggested that be the policy.  

 

I'm sorry you misinterpreted the intentions and wrote this long post .......when it all involves in dealing  with the situation that exists today----that TRUMP & republicans created such a mess  by initially  threatening to close the borders ----and making so many immigrants  trying to beat the clock on it coming in droves----that it created a crisis where there was none before.   .   

 

TO add to the MESS  Trump & his minons created a policy back in April 2018 about punishing  children  who came  with  no choice but come here being  separated from parents who were the target  intended to be punished by taking away their children.    IF THIS IS DIFFICULT TO READ AND UNDERSTAND ----you aren't the only one confused by this Trump & his team's logic.

So here we see another leg of the stool that holds up the democrat 2020 election platform.  

 

Does anyone here actually think this is a winning message that American citizens will support?  

 

If you think yes, please explain...

That is not going to happen. so please do't try to put the fear of God into the post. I as a non Trump follower will tell you that the voters of this country will not be happy with anything like that. and that means not  many Democrats, but also Independents and Republicans that will not vote for Trump.

Because no Democratic Candidate that is the elected candidate for the Democratic Party will not win, if they stand on any of those issues.

OPEN BORDERS: Elizabeth Warren Introduces New Plan to ‘Decriminalize’ Illegal Immigration

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren introduced a new plan this week that would essentially “decriminalize” those caught illegally entering the United States; raising serious new questions over the Democrat’s immigration policy heading into the 2020 election.

 

“Entering the country without authorization has always been a violation of civil immigration law, but thanks to a former segregationist Senator, it’s also a criminal violation. This additional criminal provision is totally unnecessary for border security, and for a century, it was rarely enforced. But since the early 2000s, it has been used to build and sustain a massive immigration detention complex,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.

 

“In 2016, over half of all federal criminal prosecutions were for immigration violations — more than prosecutions for terrorism, organized crime, hate crimes, or financial fraud. This obsessive focus ties up federal prosecutors and overwhelms federal courts. It’s costly and unnecessary. And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive,” she adds.

 

“We should repeal this criminal prohibition to prevent future abuse. As president, I will 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,” Warren concludes.

 

Warren toured an immigration detention center days ago; criticizing the Trump administration’s policy but failing to mention the complex was opened by the Obama White House in 2015/

 

“What is happening at Homestead to children, what is happening is a direct result of activities of the United States government. It’s wrong. It’s a stain on our country and we must speak out. We speak out as a people, we speak out as moral citizens, not just of the United States but of the world,” said Warren.

 

There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight. And one of them is that you show up. I'm at the Homestead detention center today and I hope you'll be watching. https://t.co/vzXqUlaiIM

— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) June 26, 2019

 

There’s just one problem for Elizabeth Warren. The Homestead Detention Center was opened by former President Barack Obama in 2015.

 

“The facility was first opened during the Obama administration, but immigration rights advocates say the Trump administration has stranded children there for longer periods by making it more difficult for them to be released to sponsors, usually parents or close relatives,” reports Reuters.

 

“The shelter opened under Barack Obama to hold children who were showing up to the U.S. border, mostly from Central American countries such as Honduras and El Salvador,” adds the Miami New Times.
