Veterans Assisting Veterans blasted Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts earlier this week on an episode of Fox & Friends, saying that she puts the interests of undocumented immigrants above those of veterans (per Fox News Insider).
Senator Warren’s reelection race is shaping up to be a contentious one, so criticism from Massachusetts-based organizations like Veterans Assisting Veterans is not good news for the Democratic senator.

“There’s hundreds of veterans dying every day. … Why don’t we address those problems first, and then we’ll worry about other people coming into our country,” said Dennis Moschella, the group’s president.

The group’s spokesman John MacDonald said Veterans Assisting Veterans is by no means anti-immigration and in fact salutes the countless immigrants who have fought for America.
“Elizabeth Warren and people like her seem to have a very hard time understanding the difference between legal and illegal. … It seems to be the fact that she’s more interested in creating political theater than she is in helping Americans,” MacDonald said.
