Immigration

We are a state and a nation of immigrants, and Senator Feinstein strongly opposes Donald Trump’s attacks on our immigrant communities and believes we must have comprehensive immigration reform.

She supports the DREAM Act and DACA, which is why she opposed the recent omnibus spending package that did not include protections for Dreamers. She also strongly opposes President Trump’s unjust and unconstitutional travel ban and has authored legislation to rescind the President's executive orders that created those bans.

She is also the author of the Keep Families Together Act, which will end the inhumane practice of separating children from their parents at our border.

Senator Feinstein was proud to work closely with Dolores Huerta and the United Farm Workers to author the Agricultural Worker Program Act to put farmworkers on a path to earned legal status and citizenship.

Senator Feinstein believes we must come together to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship for immigrants, backlog reduction, assistance for immigrant members of the armed services and their families, visa reform, and humanitarian relief for families.
