Green New Deal Network chief of staff Kunoor Ojha and a slew of other activists shouted questions at the senator while she was on the phone. “Hi, Sen. Sinema? 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? Do you want to cut climate priorities? Is it elder care that you want to cut, or is it child care?”
A DACA recipient named Karina tried to ask Kyrsten Sinema if she'd support a pathway to citizenship for immigrants and Sinema refused to answer.
If Karina was a corporation and held a giant fundraiser for Sinema, maybe she'd get an answer. pic.twitter.com/DPbPuUe8yl

Sinema released a statement on Monday, in which she described being harassed in a public restroom last week. “After deceptively entering a locked, secure building, these individuals filmed and publicly posted videos of my students without their permission — including footage taken of both my students and I using a restroom,” she said.
