Elizabeth Warren unveils environmental justice plan

Elizabeth Warren vowed on Wednesday to protect minority- and low-income communities from the effects of pollution and climate change. Warren argued that years of discriminatory housing and other practices had forced people of color and impoverished people into areas most likely to be harmed by pollution. She said she would direct one third of her proposed climate investment to the vulnerable.

Wow. So Warren says that the US middle class has not had enough jobs taken away from them by illegal immigrants, so she wants to ensure that *more* illegal immigrants can come in, get benefits paid for by the US middle class, AND ensure that the illegal immigrants are able to get the same protections as US citizens and other legal immigrants. It's like she wants to get rid of the border without actually saying that.

A climate policy... which has nothing to do with environmentalism but instead social justice out the ass. Poor people aren't going to get hurt from pollution they're going to get hurt from the increased expenses of nonsensical carbon emission reduction policies!

So a Democrat, talking about how the Democrats put POC in shitty neighbourhoods and forced them to be welfare slaves, but now, its election time, we need to solve this problem.....I'm seeing a pattern.
