Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised a crowd of supporters on Saturday that on her first day in the White House, she would create a commission to investigate “crimes committed by the United States against immigrants.”

The well-known Warren Commission of days gone by investigated the killing of a president. A new Warren Commission would, in essence, be about a president killing the United States.

“On my first day, I will empower a commission in the Department of Justice to investigate crimes committed by the United States against immigrants,” she declared at the leftist Netroots Nation conference.

In an outrageous, sweeping attack on the good people working Border Protection missions during the current Democrat-fueled immigration crisis, Warren broad-brushed baseless accusations that are making life for them more dangerous and difficult.

“To anyone out there who’s working in this system, understand you abuse immigrants, you physically abuse immigrants, you sexually abuse immigrants, you fail to get them medical care that they need, you break the law of the United States of America and Donald Trump may be willing to look the other way, but President Elizabeth Warren will not,” Warren said.

The threats she issued against “anyone working in the system” were not a spur-of-the-moment, off-script pledge. She actually released a plan entitled “My Plan for Immigration Reform” earlier in the week that announced she intends to create a Justice Department task force with “independent authority” to investigate “any substantiated criminal allegations” of medical neglect or physical and sexual assault.

“Let there be no ambiguity on this,” she wrote, “if you are violating the basic rights of immigrants, now or in the future, a Warren administration will hold you accountable.”

The immigration crisis continues to be used by Democrats as a club against the administration, twisting realities to suit their political purposes and avoiding real solutions at all costs.

According to Warren’s published plan … “President Trump has weaponized deportation in ways that are costly, ineffective, and designed to maximize pain. It’s time to end this cruelty — and refocus on true threats to public safety and national security instead.”

Referring to an “obsessive focus” on border enforcement, Warren wrote: “And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive. We should repeal this criminal prohibition to prevent future abuse. As president, I will immediately issue guidance to end criminal prosecutions for simple administrative immigration violations; end Operation Streamline, which subjects migrants to mass prosecutions; and refocus our limited resources on actual criminals and real threats to the United States. I will also issue prosecutorial guidance to prioritize immigration cases with security concerns, and make sure government attorneys are properly exercising their discretion for individuals who pose no public safety risk.”

Warren’s plan aimed at appealing to the far left indicates she will:

  • “Separate law enforcement from immigration enforcement to strengthen our communities.
  • “Remake CBP and ICE in a way that reflects our values.
  • “Create accountability for the abuse perpetrated during the Trump Era.
  • “Significantly reduce immigration detention.
  • “Eliminate private detention facilities.
  • “Provide rights and due process in our immigration courts.”
