An advocacy group is slamming Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for supporting illegal immigrants and not making veterans' services her top priority, the Boston Herald reports.

"We'd like to see our leaders re-examine their priorities, put this at the forefront — if we have to, we'll knock on some doors in D.C.," said John MacDonald of Veterans Assisting Veterans. "We need to take care of veterans first before we decide to take care of people who are illegally here.

In a two-page open letter to "all Americans," the group criticized the "selfish blatant ignorance of the politicians that have chosen illegal immigrants over US Veterans."

The letter targets Warren, along with Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., U.S. Reps. Michael Capuano and Seth Moulton, both Democrats from Massachusetts and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh for failing to speak out about veterans' care.

But it clearly takes aim at Warren and her "misguided antics," the newspaper noted.

"Senator Warren and others like her should know the difference between legal and illegal activity and chose instead to act out negatively in selfish political theater," the letter said. "Where's your rally for US Veterans, Senator Warren?"

However, Warren's office insisted the well-being of veterans is of "utmost importance" to her.

"She also knows that standing up for our veterans and rejecting President [Donald] Trump's unlawful, immoral, and irresponsible attacks on immigrants are not mutually exclusive issues," according to a statement from her office.
