Sen. Elizabeth Warren, released Tursday a sweeping immigration plan called “A Fair and Welcoming Immigration System”, that would increase the number of refugee admissions by almost 800 percent from FY 2018.
Warren said she would increase the admissions of migrant refugees to 175,000 per year with a ceiling of 125,000 in her first year in the White House. That in itself would represent a 800 percent increase over the roughly 22,000 admitted in FY2018 by Trump administration.
President Trump has taken our immigration system to its most punitive extreme, but his racist policies build on a broken system and an enforcement infrastructure already primed for abuse. Today, I’m announcing my plan to reform our immigration system. https://t.co/LPDEESENgY
