    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sorry that a 20-year-old Iowa student
    is dead and that a reported illegal alien has been charged in
    the killing, but the Massachusetts Democrat wants to stay
    focused on the “real problems.”

    This isn’t a paraphrase of something she said Wednesday on CNN.
    This is her actual response to a question about reports that law
    enforcement agents have charged Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, in
    the disappearance and murder of Mollie Tibbetts.

    “I’m so sorry for the family here, and I know this is hard, not
    only for the family, but for the people in her community, the
    people throughout Iowa,” Warren told CNN’s John Berman. “But one
    of the things we have to remember is: We need an immigration
    system that is effective. That focuses on where real problems

    Berman asking the senator specifically to respond to President
    Trump and Vice President Mike Pence claiming the Tibbetts murder
    is proof of the need for stronger immigration enforcement.

    Warren continued, saying, "Uh, last month, I went down to the
    border, and I saw where children had been taken away from their
    mothers. I met with those mothers, who had been lied to, who
    didn’t know where their children were, who hadn’t had a chance
    to talk to their children. And there was no plan for how they’d
    be reunified with their children."

    Tibbetts' remains were found early Tuesday morning, according to
    law enforcement officials. Rivera, who authorities believe has
    been living in the U.S. illegally for four to seven years, has
    been charged with first-degree murder. His bail was set Tuesday
    at $1 million.

    “I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose
    a real threat, and I don’t think mammas and babies are the place
    where we should be spending our resources. Separating a mamma
    from a baby does not make this country safe,” Warren said.

    Trump signed an executive order on June 20 reversing the policy
    of separating illegal immigrant families. And as to the issue of
    mothers being separated from their babies, I think Tibbetts’
    mother, Laura Calderwood, might have some thoughts on that.

    The Washington Examiner’s Phil Klein disagreed Wednesday with
    the criticisms of Warren, arguing the Massachusetts senator had
    not really stepped in it with “outrageously tone-deaf” comment.

    “I'm no Warren fan, but this strikes me as a stretch. In clip
    she goes on to say we need to focus on actual threats, and that
    family separation doesn't make us safe," he wrote. "She isn't
    saying that a young girl getting killed isn't a problem.”

    I disagree that the negative reaction is a stretch. The
    criticisms are well-deserved. Her comments follow a clear path.
    She starts by saying she’s sorry about the Tibbetts murder, and
    then changes the subject to attack Trump over an immigration
    policy he rescinded two months ago.

    It’s true Warren's remarks were about the White House’s response
    to the murder. That doesn’t take away from the “but” in her “I’m
    sorry someone is dead” response. There should never be a "but"
    in those statements.
