WATCH: Rep. Sinema On Hiring DREAM ACTivist

Channel 12's Brahm Resnik got Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) on camera yesterday to ask her about the hiring of prominent DREAM Act activist Erika Andiola as District Outreach Director.

Sinema confirmed that Andiola is in the U.S. legally - under the President's Executive Order, and that she will be reaching out to constituents and constituencies across the district.  Also, as Arizona's Politics was the first to report yesterday, Sinema noted that she hired Andiola BEFORE ICE agents raided her home and temporarily arrested (and, planned to deport) Andiola's mother and brother; Resnik had asked her if it was "a political hire" to seize on the publicity of the raid.
