Cornyn dismisses immigration criticism as ‘complete BS’

Cesar Vargas, director of the DREAM Action Coalition, wrote an op-ed featured in the Houston Chronicle today criticizing Senator John Cornyn’s “effort to doom immigration reform.” Vargas warned that Cornyn, who is up for reelection, will face the “wrath of Texas Latino voters” if he obstructs immigration reform.

In response, Cornyn took to his Twitter account with more colorful language than usual, calling the accusations “complete BS.”

“Cesar Vargas of the DREAM Action Coalition accused Sen. Cornyn of being an ‘obstructionist’ on immigration reform and suggested that he is trying to derail the bipartisan Senate bill drafted by the so-called Gang of Eight,” Cornyn press secretary Drew Brandewie said. “The bill is a little over a week old, and Sen. Cornyn has repeatedly praised his colleagues’ efforts. Last week, Sen. Cornyn laid out areas where he agreed and disagreed with the Gang of 8. He looks forward to the mark up and the continued debate on this important, complex issue.”

The coalition Twitter account responded by alerting press and congressional Twitter accounts of the offensive language, including ‘Gang of 8′ member Sen. Marco Rubio.

3. Cornyn is now speaking against the best interest of Texans before voting against the

best interests of Texans. Democrats need to make sure he keeps answering to the republic about WHY and WHAT he is voting for and against. Please keep asking him before hand. Democracy demands pro-activity.

Here is his voting record:
