(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) sent out a series of three Tweets on Sunday night warning the Trump administration that she will start a task force at the Justice Department “to investigate the Trump administration’s criminal abuses at the border.”

“[W]e’ll hold perpetrators accountable,” she vowed.

“I’ve got a message for the Trump administration,” Warren said in the first Tweet. “When you physically abuse immigrant, sexually abuse immigrants, or refuse to supply immigrants with medical care that they need, you break the law of the United States of America.”

“Trump may look the other way—but President Elizabeth Warren will not,” she said in her second Tweet.

“I’ll launch a task force in the Department of Justice to investigate the Trump administration’s criminal abuses at the border, and I will hold perpetrators accountable,” she said.

This Tweet then included a link to Warren’s immigration plan.

“As president,” Warren says in the plan, “I’ll work to expand legal immigration. I’ll take executive action to provide a measure of protection for those who are undocumented, while pursuing a legislative solution that provides a path to citizenship.”

“When people come to our borders desperate—people whose lives have been turned upside down, people trying to build a better future—we need to treat them with humanity, and we need to follow the law,” Warren said in her third Tweet.
