United We Dream Action, one of the largest national immigrant rights groups, announced its endorsement Friday.
“Both Warren and Sanders rise far above the rest in their vision and readiness to deliver on our platform for change,” the group said in a video. “Both Warren and Sanders offer an end to the Trump nightmare and would take our country further than any other candidate as we strive toward justice.”
United We Dream Action ticked through aspects of their platform that both senators have come out in support of, including closing for-profit detention centers, shrinking the budgets for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, and stopping and reviewing deportations within the first 100 days of their administrations.
Immigration has been a top issue during the Democratic primary race as several White House contenders rail against Trump administration policies such as building a border wall and the travel ban.
