The Latest: De Leon, Feinstein Agree On Immigration

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her same-party challenger say both political parties could come together in the next Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Feinstein and former state Senate leader Kevin de Leon said during their only debate Wednesday that they believe Democrats could find common ground with certain Republicans to craft what Feinstein called a fair and humane immigration policy that doesn’t separate parents from their children. But de Leon says GOP President Donald Trump could be a roadblock. He compared Trump to the comic strip character Lucy, who keeps moving the football every time Charlie Brown tries to kick it. De Leon tried to contrast his leadership with Feinstein’s. He says California has had to take the lead on protecting immigrants because Congress hasn’t acted.
