Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D, Mass.) delivers a major policy speech on “Ending corruption in Washington” at the National Press Club, Washington, D.C., August 21, 2018. (Yuri Gripas/Reuters)Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts suggested that preventing family separation at the border should be a more pressing concern than preventing illegal immigrants from committing violent crimes during a Wednesday appearance on CNN.After recounting the story of Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student who was allegedly murdered by an illegal immigrant, CNN host John Berman asked Warren if she agreed that the tragedy exemplified the need for more effective immigration enforcement.“Mike Pence and the president have suggested the immigration laws need to be stronger so that people like this man who is accused of this murder were not in the country,” Berman offered. “Your reaction?”
“One of the things we have to remember is we need an immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where real problems are,” Warren said. “Last month, I went down to the border and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers, I met with their mothers who had been lied to, who didn’t know where their children were, who hadn’t have a chance to talk to their children, and there was no plan for how they would be reunified with their children.”
“I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat and I don’t think mamas and babies are the place we should be spending our resources,” Warren continued. “Separating a mama from a baby does not make this country safer.”
Tibbetts’s body was found in an Iowa cornfield on Tuesday following an extensive search. The psychology undergraduate disappeared on July 18 after leaving her boyfriend’s house in the small town of Brooklyn, Iowa, to go for a jog.
Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a 24-year-old undocumented Mexican immigrant, has been charged with first-degree murder in the case. Rivera, who claims he blacked out after following Tibbetts during her jog, led police to the body after they identified him on surveillance tape.

America at War just loves Pocahontas and her crazy buddies in the Democratic Party!!! They are assuring a #Conservative victory come #Election time!!!
#Democrats are doing exactly as they always do…… Which is crying about “Mothers being separated from their babies”
Of course they leave out the part where the “Mother” violated our laws getting here with that baby, knowing full well she will possibly be arrested.
They always leave out the part where the photos of “The caged children” were taken back when #Obama was #POTUS.
I am an American citizen and if I break the laws of the United States I will be arrested AND separated from my children!!!
So why is it again that these people who broke the law by crossing into country ILLEGALLY take priority over #AMERICAN CITIZENS who break the law???
Apparently Democrats think they should immediately be released so they can take another run at our #Border!!!
They came here knowing that if they were caught they’d be arrested.
Yet they willfully put themselves and their children into this situation!!!
And somehow in the minds of those on the #Left, the #Illegal #Immigrants being arrested for BREAKING OUR LAWS should be more important than the AMERICAN lives taken by THESE SAME ILLEGALS???
Seriously??? Keep up the GREAT work Elizabeth!!!
If I had MY WAY There would be a #Marine every 1000 yards along the border with orders “to shoot to kill” ANY person attempting to cross into our country illegally!!!
We’d need no #Wall!!!
Because once the Marines had plugged a few of them……. The rest would go back home!!! And the problem would be solved!!!
For the cost of some #ammunition and a Marine who is already drawing a salary.
That is EXACTLY what would happen to YOU for violating most countries borders should you be caught!!!
Save the cost of a #Wall AND stop illegal immigration in 1 step!!!
And give our Marines some practice at the same time!!!
Or does that just make too much sense???
