Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was asked on Wednesday during a CNN segment to comment on the murder of 20-year-old Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal immigrant.
Even given the tragic nature of the topic, the progressive politician just couldn’t help herself. She spent the bulk of her answer bemoaning how illegal aliens are treated by U.S. law enforcement officials.
“I want to get one last question in here because it is a story, a very important story in the news, it has to do with Mollie Tibbetts, the young woman in Iowa who was murdered,” CNN host John Berman said to Warren, as The Daily Wire noted.
“Her body [was] believed to be found yesterday. A person has been charged with it. This person is an undocumented immigrant.”
Berman continued, “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 [are] not in the country. Your reaction?”
Warren gave a quick expression of sympathy for the Tibbetts family and the Iowa community of Brooklyn — but she then launched into a shameful business-as-usual rant. She attacked the Trump administration for separating illegal aliens from children at the U.S. border.
“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 [had] 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.”
It’s a sad state of affairs when a human being, no matter what ideology or party, cannot stop and give proper condolences to those affected by a horrific murder — especially when given a huge platform to do so.
Ultraliberal Warren will try to hang on to her Senate seat this November; she is being challenged by Republicans Shiva Ayyadurai and John Kingston.
She is assumed by many to be planning a run for the presidency in 2020.
