BORDER/ELIZABETH WARREN/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts offered an immigration proposal on Thursday [7-11-19] that would create new protections for migrants, investigate allegations of abuse under the Trump administration and allow far higher numbers of refugees into the country. Ms. Warren’s plan includes an assertive push for liberal immigration priorities, like decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings. She also pledged to establish judicial review for immigration cases and create an ‘Office of New Americans’ that would provide services to immigrants transitioning into American society, including English classes. Ms. Warren has gained ground in polling of the Democratic presidential race in recent months by providing a steady diet of detailed policy proposals on issues including a wealth tax and student debt cancellation. But until Thursday, an immigration proposal had been conspicuously absent. Much of her plan, which she posted on Medium, calls for a suite of measures similar to those that have already been suggested by other Democrats seeking the party’s nomination.”
