In January, Dreyfus used her time during her acceptance speech at the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards show to speak out against Trump’s first executive order and called the “immigration ban” “un-American.”
“I am the daughter of an immigrant,” Louis-Dreyfus proclaimed. “My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France and I am an American patriot. I love this country and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes.”
“And this immigrant ban is a blemish and it’s un-American,” she added.
There was no mention in the article of who the possible Democrats were that asked her.
