Bernie Sanders is adding his support to a call by some of his fellow presidential hopefuls for decriminalizing illegal border crossings.
The Vermont senator released a detailed immigration policy proposal Thursday, writing that unauthorized presence in the United States should be “a civil, not a criminal, offense.”
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren called in July for repealing the criminal prohibition against crossing the border illegally, promising in her own immigration plan to “immediately issue guidance to end criminal prosecutions for simple administrative immigration violations.”
