Elizabeth Warren is trying to raise her profile as the left-wing champion.
But it’s causing her one major problem.
And it could be devastating to her career.
Democrats led by Elizabeth Warren are making amnesty for illegal aliens their line in the sand.
They are reacting in horror to Donald Trump’s directives to enforce federal immigration laws.
This thrills the left-wing base.
But it’s alienating millions of Americans.
And veterans are at the top of the list.
An advocacy group, Veterans Assisting Veterans, wrote Warren a letter blasting her for supporting illegal immigrants and demanded she make veteran issues a top priority.
The Boston Herald reports:
“A local veterans’ advocacy group is blasting Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and other state Democrats for their support of illegal immigrants, calling it “selfish political theater” and demanding they put veterans’ services at the top of their list — or feel the heat.
“We’d like to see our leaders re-examine their priorities, put this at the forefront — if we have to, we’ll knock on some doors in D.C.,” said John MacDonald of Veterans Assisting Veterans. “We need to take care of veterans first before we decide to take care of people who are illegally here.”
In a two-page open letter to “all Americans,” the group — which has funded all-terrain wheelchairs for local vets as well as horse therapy at Ironstone Farm in Andover — slams the “selfish blatant ignorance of the politicians that have chosen illegal immigrants over US Veterans” and calls for readers to support VAV’s cause.
The letter also targets U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, U.S. Reps. Michael Capuano and Seth Moulton — an Iraq war veteran — and Mayor Martin J. Walsh for failing to speak out about veteran homelessness and health care problems, specifically calling out Warren and her “misguided antics.”
“Senator Warren and others like her should know the difference between legal and illegal activity and chose instead to act out negatively in selfish political theater,” the letter reads. “Where’s your rally for US Veterans, Senator Warren?”
MacDonald appeared on Fox News and expanded on his criticism of Warren.

Democrats believe they can rally their base by opposing Trump at every turn.
And this includes opposing his directives to enforce federal immigration laws and deport criminal aliens.
Democrats – and the media – believed this would happen in the 2016 election.
They claimed Trump’s strong rhetoric on securing the border would lead Hispanics to vote against him in record numbers.
But Trump won a greater share of the Hispanic vote than even Mitt Romney, and ultimately emerged victorious.
Warren and the Democrats are about to repeat this same mistake again by doubling down on their support for illegal aliens.
