月曜日に登場したビデオで, シネマは、ワシントンのレーガン国立空港で、グリーンニューディールネットワークのチーフスタッフであるクヌールオジャと他の小グループから連絡を受けました。, D.C.
“こんにちは, シネマ上院議員? I want to ask if you can explain to the American people what you’re planning on cutting from Joe Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan?” Ojha asked while Sinema attempted to have a phone conversation.
“Do you want to cut climate priorities? Is it elder care that you want to cut, or is it child care?” 彼女は続けた.
Other people chimed in to ask Sinema about various issues until the questions became indiscernible.
While Sinema was on the plane, a Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (もしも) recipient named Karina went up to the senator to ask her if she would commit to a pathway to citizenship for immigrants.
“Can you commit to that, 上院議員?” Karina asked, 後で追加, “I don’t want to disturb you, しかし同時に, I just want to know if I can get a commitment from you, senator.”
Sinema did not engage at length in either exchange and mostly sought to ignore the questioners.
The incidents at the airport come on the heels of footage that circulated Sunday depicting immigration activists following Sinema from the classroom where she teaches at Arizona State University to the bathroom. The activists demanded she support a “pathway to citizenship” while the Arizona Democrat was in the stall and later emerged to wash her hands.
Sinema and her colleague その. ジョー・マンチン, D-W.Va., have both been recently accosted by protesters for not supporting Biden’s $ 3.5 trillion spending bill.
Manchin was approached by protesters in kayaks while on his houseboat ワシントンで, D.C., 週末に.
“上院議員, this is an investment,” one kayaker yelled. “This is not giving out money. This is not spending. This is building the state that we both love!”
バイデン addressed the confrontations against the two senators Monday, revealing that neither of them have Secret Service protection.
“I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” バイデンは言った.
“The only people it doesn’t happen to are the people who have Secret Service standing around them,” バイデンが追加されました. “そう, it’s part of the process.”
