Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today voted against Francis Cissna as head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Feinstein released the following statement:
“I voted against the nomination of Francis Cissna as director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services because he refused to commit to the DACA program or protecting the hundreds of thousands of young people it currently safeguards.
“The Trump administration’s decision to end DACA without a permanent, legislative solution is cruel and irresponsible. I cannot support nominations for immigration positions in the administration until DACA youth are protected.”
