As Breitbart News reported, Finkenauer has said she supported amnesty for all 12 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., adding she supports giving “earned citizenship” to the entire illegal population.
The young Democrat also opposed the state’s sanctuary city ban during her time in the State Senate, indicating her support for protections for criminal illegal aliens.
