RAMOS: Let me ask you about immigration. Senator Sanders has committed to introducing immigration reform during his first 100 days as president, which would legalize millions of undocumented (immigrants). Can you commit to doing the exact same thing?

WARREN: So, yes. My immigration plan, which I’ve been talking about for a long time, has two very important parts: first, expanding legal immigration and creating a pathway to citizenship for people that are already here.  are our neighbors, and our friends. It is not enough to simply focus on DACA. We need a pathway to citizenship for all those who are here and are here to stay, and I commit to working on that from the start of my presidency.

RAMOS: So can you commit to doing it within the first 100 days?

WARREN: Yes. 

RAMOS:  I remember that President Barack Obama committed to doing it during his first year in the White House, and he broke his promise. So do you want to do it in the first 100 days?

WARREN: I know. Yes.

RAMOS: All right. OK. I see that you often use “Latinx” instead of “Latinos” or “Latinas”. Why is that?

WARREN: Um, I am told that many people feel that this word is more inclusive. I just want to be respectful, and that’s what’s most important to me, and to use whatever is the most inclusive and most respectful word possible. If I don’t have it right, I want to get it right.
