Senator Feinstein was speaking critically of the so-called RAISE Act, a senate bill co-sponsored by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue and supported by President Trump. The bill would drastically reduce the levels of legal immigration to the United States, cutting the number of green cards issued by the government by half. The bill would also end family-based preferences for immigration and would instead prioritize skilled labor.
Opponents of the bill, including Feinstein and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, argue that immigrants are needed for their unskilled labor.
