Democratic presidential candidates promised major changes to US immigration law, contrasting their ideas to President Trump’s policies during a forum with Latino political activists in Milwaukee, according to AP.
The White House hopefuls gathered as Trump's detention policies have sparked fierce Democratic pushback and intense public debate. They uniformly panned Trump's approach to immigration on a day when the president abandoned his contentious effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Senator Elizabeth Warren drew one of the biggest audience reactions of the night when asked about the issue. "Wow, he's going to follow the law?" Warren said to laughter and applause. "This is not about trying to find real information about citizenship and non-citizenship in America. This is just about trying to stir up some more hate," she added.
