Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the frontrunners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, joined a protest in front of a migrant detention center Wednesday morning—hours before she was expected to join nine other members of her party for the first primary debate.
“There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight,” Warren said to supporters on social media. “And one of them is that you show up.”
Warren’s appearance at the Homestead Detention Center was prompted by a question during a town hall the night before from an audience member who asked the Massachusetts senator if she would join a protest at the facility. Homestead holds the nation’s largest child migrant population.
The senator said she would and brought supporters and the media with her on the visit.
The visit was pre-planned, according to The Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel.
