Via Boston.com:

On the Democratic side, Sens. Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, and Dianne Feinstein of California, have expressed deep reservations about sending the children back to potentially dangerous situations.

“I think we’d better think twice,” Durbin said. Feinstein likened the situation to the “boatloads of Jewish immigrants trying to come to this country during Nazi Germany and getting turned back.”

“That’s not what this country is all about,” she said. “This, in my view, has to be handled in a way which is compassionate.”
