Senator Feinstein (D-CA) faces attack on immigration, this time from the left

 

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has been in the news in recent weeks connection with the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing.

Back in California, Senator Feinstein is running for reelection against Democrat )and California State Senator) Kevin De León.  Immigration is one of the issues that De León has focused on in his campaign.  As reported in the Los Angeles Times, released a campaign video online (see above) that

"recreates scenes from De León’s childhood, being raised by a single immigrant mother who worked as a housekeeper. It goes on to show how De León’s life would have changed had he lived in present-day America and been separated from his mother by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The video includes two clips of Feinstein, one from 1994, where she says: `The illegal immigrants who come here and commit felonies, that’s not what this nation,' before it cuts off. The second clip, from 1993, begins mid-sentence, and includes her saying, `I say return them to their own country where that country may be.' The video then cuts to a clip of Trump referring to immigrants as rapists."
