Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) spoke out on Monday against the student activists who followed her into a bathroom on Sunday and harassed her over immigration issues, demanding she back the Build Back Better plan.
Sinema is considered by many to be somewhat of a political centrist, as far as the current Democrat party is concerned. The activists who followed her threatened to take her out of office, and demanded citizenship for seven million illegal immigrants immediately.
"Yesterday’s behavior was not legitimate protest," Sinema said, according to the Daily Wire. "It is unacceptable for activist organizations to instruct their members to jeopardize themselves by engaging in unlawful activities such as gaining entry to closed university buildings, disrupting learning environments, and filming students in a restroom."
"In the 19 years I have been teaching at ASU, I have committed to creating a safe and intellectually challenging environment for my students. Yesterday, that environment was breached," she said.
"My students were unfairly and unlawfully victimized. This is wholly inappropriate."
"It is the duty of elected leaders to avoid fostering an environment in which honestly-held policy disagreements serve as the basis for vitriol," Sinema said, "raising the temperature in political rhetoric and creating a permission structure for unacceptable behavior."
The Biden administration has shown little sympathy for Sinema, or for fellow Democrat Rep. Joe Manchin, who was targeted as he was boating this weekend, saying that the harassment they are currently receiving is just "part of the process," and that "it happens to everybody."
