Activists demand that Cinema should support the ‘Path to Citizenship’
Kirsten Cinema was confronted by immigration activists who chased the senator from the classroom where he taught in the bathroom at Arizona State University, while demanding Arizona Democrats to act on the “path to citizenship.”
A worker told the cinema in the video, “We have knocked on your doors to get you elected. The way we have elected you, we can remove you from office if you don’t support what we promised. ” Recorded with a phone.
Manchin confronted by kayakers in his DC houseboat
Activists first encountered Sinima in her ASU classroom, then followed her down the hall as the senator went to the bathroom and closed the door to a stall. Still, activists continued to voice their demands from inside the bathroom, including that she support President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda and legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. .
“We just need a build back better plan,” said one worker.
Another worker said, “I was brought here to the United States when I was three years old and in 2010 both my grandparents were deported because of SB 1070.” “And I’m here because I certainly believe we need a path to citizenship.”
The cinema did not engage in discussion with the workers in the video footage, but instead ignored the group as she exited the stall and washed her hands.
The video comes on the same day that another group of activists confronted Sen. Joe Manchin on his houseboat in Washington, D.C., demanding the West Virginia Democrats drop their opposition to his party’s $3.5 trillion spending bill.
Cinema and Manchin have both expressed their opposition to the law, a blow to Democrats, who cannot rule out a single defection in an equally divided Senate.
