Every time it seems like Elizabeth Warren couldn’t be any more out of touch with average Americans, she takes it a step further.
She is now making demands for special protection for transgender migrants.
Does she really think this is a priority for anyone?
Elizabeth Warren Demands Protection For Trans Migrants
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) are demanding swift action to protect transgender migrants attempting to enter the United States.
In an eight-page letter to Trump administration officials, the senators implore the administration to reverse immigration policies they consider harmful to transgender migrants and other vulnerable populations. The policies they want reversed? All of them! The populations they consider vulnerable? All of them!
“We write to express alarm over reports detailing the abuse and neglect of trans gender migrants and asylum seekers at the border and in U.S. custody,” the letter states. “We ask you to immediately reverse policies that harm these vulnerable individuals and take swift action to protect the health and safety of transgender migrants.”
The senators then call for “alternatives to detention, including release from detention on recognizance, parole, and community-based alternatives to incarceration.”
Recognizance is codeword for “catch and release,” the losing bargain immigration authorities make when they release migrants, who promise to appear at their immigration hearings but frequently fail to show up.
And what “community-based alternatives to incarceration” might the senators have in mind? My guess is the community-based policy known as a sanctuary city, which is where local officials jeopardize the public’s safety by refusing to cooperate with federal authorities.
She is actually serious about this:
Trans migrants and asylum seekers are particularly vulnerable.
We must end unnecessary detention and enforce strict standards to keep trans migrants and asylum seekers safe—and I'll continue holding our government accountable when they fail to do so. https://t.co/erHH1ieD2s

This response is perfect:
This feels a bit like being on the Titanic as it's going down and complaining that the croutons in the salad aren't gluten free. Aren't there many, many more concerning issues that need to be addressed?

She has a weird sense of what’s important, that’s for sure.
