Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said that all Democrats supported “comprehensive immigration reform” and that they were still working out the details in a CNN interview Monday.

ELIZABETH WARREN IN NY TIMES: DEMOCRATS MUST PASS STALLED AGENDA ITEMS OR BRACE FOR ‘BIG LOSSES’ IN MIDTERMS
“Almost a dozen of your fellow Democratic senators are expressing concerns about this. You support lifting title 42, so what is your plan to handle a likely surge in migrants? Are you sure they will be treated humanely? Bash asked the senator.
Warren said that Title 42 was not “consistent with our values” and “doesn’t keep us safer.”
“The Biden administration is working to address people who want amnesty or humanitarian relief at the border,” said the senator. “But keep in mind, we need comprehensive immigration reform. All Democrats support comprehensive immigration reform. We need to iron out the details. However, we must continue to fight for this cause. This is where we must make significant changes. “

Bash also asked Warren about the midterm elections and the Democratic Party’s chances.
Warren said that if the Democrats don’t pass their agenda in the next 200 days, they would lose big in the November midterm elections.

Some Democrats have distanced themselves from the administration’s plans for Title 42. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, for instance, said that “the administration’s decision to roll back Title 42 is wrong and reckless. “
Others, like Rep. Susie Lee, D-Nevada, emphasized having a plan in place before the measure is lifted.
“Until the administration can demonstrate that there is a plan in place to handle a surge in migration at the border in a humane, safe and orderly way, I can’t support the decision to end Title 42 at this time,” Lee previously told Fox News Digital. “By lifting Title 42 without the necessary staffing and resources, the administration will only exacerbate the tensions that, for decades, have stalled progress on reforming our broken immigration system.”
Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) also stated that the administration does not have a plan.
