Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) took 113 days to reply to a veteran group's open letter, and her response did not address the group's central concern about her advocacy for illegal immigrants.
The Boston Herald reports that Warren told the Massachusetts-based Veterans Assisting Veterans advocacy group that she would help them by opposing President Donald Trump's proposed cuts to Veterans Affairs, food stamps, and Medicaid.
But Warren did not address the VAV's original criticisms that she and other Democrats were giving illegal immigrants more attention than veterans. She also did not discuss the Boston mayor's plan to house illegal immigrants in the City Hall.
Warren instead listed in her four-page letter the actions she has taken to help veterans, adding that her brothers in the military instilled in her respect for the armed forces..
