It’s funny that all of these Democrats agree with most American’s views on illegal immigration… just in the past.
What changed with them? Why did they go from liberal to leftist?

I think it’s simply media manipulation. No one realized that their go-to media sources have changed?
Just today, listening to NPR on the immigrant thing…they present a human interest story about family and voting, but inside the story is a bunch of stuff about immigration, but they never actually present any facts or even differentiate between legal and illegal immigration and the benefits and costs of each. It’s just low-information, emotional content, meant to sway voters w/out any facts. https://www.npr.org/2018/11/01/662855443/a-couples-plan-to-vote-on-issues-related-to-family
Illegal immigrants are presented as a good thing because “they do the jobs other’s don’t want to.” But they don’t mention that’s really an argument for corporate profits. The corporations want low wage workers so they can have more profits.
Because corporations claim they can’t afford to pay Americans living wages, we accept illegal workers, forced to live in horrible conditions, many to a room, in shifts, with few protections or rights, as second class humans, living illegally, in the shadows
The same illegal labor market actually undercuts poor Americans’ wages and opportunities and additionally the money that is earned by illegal immigrants leaves the community when it’s sent overseas as remittances.
That money, spent by the legal residents, would have been recycled into the local economy and enriched a poor community. Why doesn’t NPR or the Democrats care about poor Americans? Why do they want illegals immigrants? Why do they equate legal and illegal immigrants?
NPR and others claim it’s their human rights to live wherever they want, but they leave out the rights of the residents who live in the country they’re immigrating to.
Do the people who live legally in a country have a right to keep their homeland?
Do they have a right to their own culture?
Illegal immigrants cost billions a year in Federal, State and Local expenses. But with the loss of wages to poor Americans and the loss of money in local economies makes the cost much higher.

Then there’s the open borders thing. It’s very dangerous to encourage illegal crossings. 80% of females making the illegal crossing at the southern border are raped during the journey and many of the women and children are being trafficked.
