There is no justification for the extreme harassment of U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, on the grounds of “advocacy” by the immigration group, Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA).
Several LUCHA “advocates” (including at least one male) recently followed Sinema into a restroom at Arizona State University, where she teaches.
The group filmed Sinema entering a bathroom stall, the closed door of Sinema’s bathroom stall, her exit and washing up. Then LUCHA published the video on social media for all to see.
LUCHA’s actions far exceed the acceptable bounds of advocacy and cross the line into thuggery and even criminality. Additionally, there is a question about whether LUCHA, a tax exempt 501(c)(4) organization, put its tax exempt status into jeopardy.
Democratic President Joe Biden sloughed off the incident, claiming “it happens to everybody.”
The LUCHA advocates beseeched Sinema to pass a law guaranteeing illegal immigrants have a pathway to citizenship and criticized her for her opposition to Pres. Joe Biden’s $7 trillion COVID relief and infrastructure bill.
