Elizabeth Warren said Trump’s policies were about “trying to stir up more hate” while Julián Castro said he wouldn’t make policy “based out of fear.”

Democrats pushed liberal platforms on immigration, education and other issues while slamming President Donald Trump at a generally friendly town hall held Thursday by the nation’s oldest Latino civil rights organization.

Four candidates — Julián Castro, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke — took the stage at the annual convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens, LULAC, vying to be the person who will be named the Democrats’ nominee when the party returns to Milwaukee for its 2020 convention.

The candidates addressed a range of issues but immigration got some heavy focus in part because of an expectation that the administration will launch a round of immigration raids, targeting 2,000 families, beginning Sunday.

They accused Trump of trying to win re-election by terrorizing the Hispanic community.
