Warren’s immigration plans reflect party’s leftward shift

WASHINGTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren is rolling out a far-reaching immigration agenda that envisions a significant leftward shift in U.S. policy.

Warren’s plan includes the remodeling of immigration enforcement agencies “from top to bottom” and new limits on the detention of migrants who enter the country.

The new platform was released Thursday ahead of Warren’s appearance alongside four Democratic presidential rivals at a forum hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens.

It comes as President Donald Trump’s detention policies continue to spark fierce Democratic pushback and stoke public debate.

Warren would also dent the Trump administration’s detention practices by creating “a Justice Department task force to investigate accusations of serious violations” in facilities that house migrants, giving that effort “independent authority to pursue any substantiated criminal allegations.”
