Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted over the weekend that she didn’t pay attention to immigration issues under former President Barack Obama but now she criticizes President Donald Trump over them.
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Jake Tapper, Feinstein was asked by Tapper what she would say to people who wanted to know where was “all this activism [over immigration issues] during the Obama years.”
“Candidly, I didn’t really know enough about it at that time to focus on it,” Feinstein replied, claiming that immigration issues are worse today than under Obama.
“I do know enough about it now,” Feinstein admitted. “We have had a hearing in the Judiciary Committee. We did have testimony.”
“I find it just inhumane, callous, and something I never thought my country would do,” Feinstein continued. “So, it is very worrisome, and we have got to stop it.”
