Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced a bold new plan to reform the criminal justice system and strike a blow for gender equality: incarcerating male convicts in women’s prisons. Donald Trump’s campaign slogan was “Make America Great Again,” and it appears Elizabeth Warren’s campaign slogan is now “Make Women’s Prisons Co-Ed.”
During a campaign stop in Marshalltown, Iowa, Warren said America needs to stop putting transgender women into prisons with men.
“We have to stop putting trans women who are incarcerated into prisons with men where they are at risk. It it our responsibility,” Warren said.
