Senator Kyrsten Sinema asu class bathroom stall twitter video, berated by activists

Kyrsten Sinema gets chastised by protestors in an Arizona State University bathroom.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema was pursued into the restroom by a group of immigration activists who challenged her in her classroom at Arizona State University.

The video shows the small group following the senator down an ASU hallway and berating her as she enters a restroom stall.

The activists targeted Sinema (D-Ariz.) for her opposition to President Biden's $3.5 trillion Build Back Better infrastructure package, which would give a road to citizenship for a large number of illegal immigrants.

The Arizona Democrat informs the activists that she must vacate the premises, but they persevere, following her into the ladies' room.

“We knocked on doors to elect you. We got you elected, and we can get you out if you don't support what you promised us," one of the activists says to Sinema in the phone-recorded video, which has been viewed almost 2 million times on Twitter.

One of the activists, Blanca, informed the senator that she was transported to the United States when she was three years old. She stated that her grandparents were deported in 2010 as a result of Arizona's contentious SB1070 immigration law, one of the harshest in the country.

“My grandfather died two weeks ago, and I was unable to travel to Mexico due to the lack of a pathway to citizenship,” she explained.

“I'm here because I feel this road to citizenship is necessary,” she concluded. “There are millions of illegal individuals who share the same or a similar story.”

Sinema remained silent in the covered cubicle, oblivious to the activists.

Sinema chastised Democratic Party leadership on Saturday for the House's "inexcusable" inability to take a vote on a bipartisan $1 trillion public works measure on Friday.

Sinema joined a chorus of moderates who blasted Democratic leadership for withdrawing the bill from the floor on Friday in order to gain additional time to negotiate Vice President Biden's huge $3.5 trillion social spending measure.

Only days before, a group of activists in kayaks challenged fellow moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on his boat in Washington, DC, for opposing the big infrastructure bill as well, thwarting Democrats' ambitions.
