1. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D) Presidential Candidate:
(Responds to question about President Trump's decision no to pursue a question about citizenship on the census)
"Wow he's going to follow the law?" (Laughter)
(Host: "He said he's going to seek other ways to get this information, right?")
Warren: "This is not about trying to find out real information about citizenship and non citizenship in America. This is just about trying to stir up some more hate. To try to get more people excited. Donald Trump has one big message to the American people. If there's something wrong in your life, if there's something that's not working, blame them. Blame people who don't look like you, blame people who don't sound like you, blame people who don't pray like you blame people who weren't born where you were born. Well he isn't. He wants to build an America that pits working people against hard working people. That is not how we build a future in this country. We build a future together that's how we make a stronger America."
Democratic presidential candidates promised major changes to U.S. immigration law Thursday, contrasting their ideas to the hardline policies of President Donald Trump during a forum with Latino political activists in Milwaukee.
Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro and Beto O'Rourke 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.
Sen. 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 noncitizenship in America. This is just about trying to stir up some more hate."
