Mrs. Feinstein’s comments below clearly show that she has very little grasp of a serious problem.
If immigration enforcement is the responsibility of Congress and not the individual state then how is it possible for a state to be considered a sovereign entity? Feinstein remains hopeful that Congress will bring about comprehensive immigration reform? What has been holding the senator back? There doesn’t seem to be any pending legislation with her name attached to it.
Feinstein is rarely a leader but lock step follower with the exception of her continued attempts to subvert the 2nd Amendment and leading legislation to raise taxes.
It’s time for the 79-year-old Feinstein to be fired by the voters in California. For the first time in her career she is facing serious competition from Elizabeth Emken.
There is no coincidence that Dianne Feinstein has spent the last 24 years in the U.S. Senate along with her partners in crime, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi overseeing the fiscal demise of California.
Californians deserve better, and the U.S. Senate needs new leaders with fresh ideas, thus Dianne Feinstein will be defeated on November 6, 2012.
The choice is relatively simple for the voters, if Feinstein is for it, there is a high probability that Elizabeth Emken doesn’t agree. Please take a moment to review Mrs. Feinstein’s position on relevant issues with Elizabeth Emken’s.
Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement after the Supreme Court overturned the majority of the Arizona immigration law:
“In overturning much of Arizona’s misguided immigration law, the Supreme Court sent a strong message that immigration enforcement is the responsibility of Congress, not the individual states. Border protection and immigration enforcement have been and will continue to be the legal preserve of the federal government.
“I remain concerned that the sole remaining provision—the requirement that police check the immigration status of a person they’ve otherwise stopped or arrested—raises serious constitutional concerns that will result in civil rights violations against citizens and immigrants alike. But it is important to note that while the court did not strike down this provision at this time, it made clear that Arizona must be very careful how it enforces this provision or it, too, will be overturned.”
“Washington has failed to fix our broken immigration system. I am hopeful that the court’s decision moves Congress to finally take action in a bipartisan manner to bring about responsible, comprehensive reform.”
