    1. “Immigrants have always been a vital source of American strength. They grow our economy and make our communities richer and more diverse.”
    2. “We need expanded legal immigration that will grow our economy, reunite families, and meet our labor market demands.”
    Now contrast those bits from the link with what Warren says at her web site.

    I’ve cut Warren some slack on Climate Change because I assume she is ignorant and out of touch – things which can be corrected. She proposes to bring in more Legal immigrants. That’ll sure help with the job markets! Then at her campaign site there is the fantasy proposal to force companies allow workers to “elect” 40% of the Boards. I don’t believe she could deliver the Antitrust Legislation, and even if somehow passed I doubt it would do anything at all to raise wages and improve working conditions.

    Only a dishonest or stupid person would say these things in terms of helping the Middle Class, and I don’t believe Warren is stupid. She claims to be wanting to cut Defense Spending, but I was unable to locate a single example of her remarking about the F-35. Big Defense seems to love her. In fact, the only saving grace I can see for EW is that she’s not as bad as Harris. But that’s a mighty low bar.
