Warren was halfway through an interview on stage at the Netroots Nation presidential forum, where she had raised the alarm on major technology when demonstrators took control of the event.
& # 39; We need legalization on day one of 11 million undocumented immigrants & # 39 ;, an activist in Warren shouted, while members of her advocacy group placed a banner promoting their cause directly in front of cameras & # 39; s that the event scan.

The demonstrator turned out to be connected to the Movimiento Coshecha organization, an immigrant-led group advocating asylum for the entire undocumented population and family reunification of the country.
Movimiento Coshecha had stormed Joe Biden's headquarters in Philadelphia, where the event Warren attended was also held earlier in the week, and said Saturated that it had haunted the leading Democratic candidate around New Hampshire on the weekend.
She then shouted loudly about how the Obama administration was approaching illegal immigration when Warren announced her position on the issue by telling her: & # 39; Let's talk about immigration. & # 39;
Unsatisfied with Warren's support for a total review of the current process, she told Warren that the immigrants need your involvement & # 39; that they will receive legal status on the first day of her presidency, if elected.
& # 39; If you don't commit, we'll leave, & # 39; the woman said to her, when two guards approached her. & # 39; You are not doing it, & # 39; she said to Warren before she did exactly that.
Warren told the audience when the protesters excited the ballroom she was addressing and wanted to expand legal immigration and create a road to citizenship, not just for dreamers but also for families.
& # 39; A path for citizenship that is fair and achievable & # 39 ;, she said about her plan.
She said that illegal immigrants who have been living in America for years and & # 39; integrated & # 39; in their communities must be allowed to stay in the country.
& # 39; Part three is that I will stop this ugly mess at our borders, & # 39; she said. & # 39; No large nation is tearing families apart. No great nation traps children. We need the – we must respect the dignity of every person who comes here at the borders. & # 39;
The Massachusetts Senator became emotional when she discussed her visit to the McAllen, Texas, immigration reception facility that illegally crossed the border.
& # 39; I saw the cages first hand. Women's cages. Men's cages. And then the little girls' cages, & she said. & # 39; And they are, they are just clumped together in cages. & # 39;
Warren said she would tackle sexual and physical violence in the detention centers. She said on her first day in office that she would appoint a commission to investigate those crimes.
& # 39; And Donald Trump may be willing to look the other way, but President Elizabeth Warren is not, & # 39; she said loudly applause.

Warren had entered the stage at the meeting she's been going to for years, to an exuberant applause. One present in the crowded room, where the fire marshal had already given a warning about filling the aisles, called out to her: & # 39; We love you, Liz! & # 39;
The audience chanted the name of the Massachusetts senator. & # 39; Warren, Warren, Warren, Warren, & # 39; they explained.
She recalled the early days when she founded the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for Barack Obama with the support of the conference community and worked ahead with a recommendation to heavily regulate top technology brands.
& # 39; Oh boo hoo, & # 39; she said about a $ 5 million fine that the Federal Trade Commission hit with Facebook on Friday for privacy violations.
The shares of the company went up, not down, after the announcement.
& # 39; We need to break down major technology, & # 39; she announced.
Warren said that companies like Amazon make a fortune with small businesses and user data.
& # 39; They offer the platform. Yay! I love the platform. But they also suck in information about all those transactions, & she said. & # 39; They absorb enough information to find out: & # 39; Oh, this animal shop is profitable. & # 39; And what are they doing? They use that information to design what the Amazon cookies store will be for pets. & # 39;
She said they name the product with a different name: & # 39; And then they move your profitable business that you have sweated and bled for back to page seven, where it dies. & # 39;
Warren said that companies should choose whether to offer the product sales platform or create products, & # 39; but you will not get both. & # 39;
In addition, she said that the US must enforce existing anti-trust legislation so that large companies do not have that much power to steam small companies.
& # 39; Over time, creating these larger and larger giants are both hugely harmful to the market, to consumers, and ultimately to democracy, "she said. & # 39; When gigantic companies have so much power that they can take control of Washington, it is no longer just about the economy they own, it's our entire country. We have to fight against this. & # 39;
Warren said the criminal justice system needs to be reformed from the front to the back so that minorities are given equal rights by law.
She said she strongly supports the legalization of marijuana. & # 39; It's not just for a few of you who think it's funny &, said she after some attendees whined and screamed. & # 39; Not just for the mellow people in the back. Or the people with all the cookies there. & # 39;
On the contrary, she said blacks and whites use marijuana to the same extent, but blacks are three times more likely to go to jail because they have misused the substance.
& # 39; That simple answer for me. Make it legal, and then that problem disappears, & she added.
Bank bail must also be eliminated and cannot be replaced by a system that discriminates against certain communities. For-profit prisons should also be banned, she said.
& # 39; We need to reform this entire system & # 39 ;, she said.
