MA US Sen. Warren Urges Voters To Act On Behalf of Lobbyists
Lobbyists on both sides of the aisle may not agree more on an issue than the need for amnesty legislation. But Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told La Raza's annual conference that they should "get louder" to fight "lobbyists" to get amnesty legislation.
Claiming that comprehensive amnesty legislation would also "stabilize" America's Social Security system, Warren told the crowd in Los Angeles on Sunday evening that they needed to "get louder together" pushing for amnesty, because "it is the responsibility of Americans to push on this."
"Be stronger than the lobbyists," she declared. "We have to do this."
Though Warren has often portrayed herself as someone who fights for the people against undefined "powerful lobbyists," the lobbyists are actually on the side of pro-amnesty activists when it comes to "immigration reform." Big-business groups like the Chamber of Commerce and the high-tech lobbies want cheaper labor, and they have aligned themselves with Democrats and pro-amnesty activists to try to ram through a comprehensive bill. The so-called "Forgotten Man" of all races and backgrounds in the middle, including legal immigrants, often has to pay the costs for more social services while losing out on jobs to foreign workers.

But all that did not get in the way of Warren trying to frame amnesty as an issue that pits "the people versus the lobbyists."
