Rep. Martina White is the sponsor of Pennsylvania’s anti-sanctuary law, part of a package of bills her colleague says is aimed to stop the “illegal alien invasion.”
The 27 year old legislator, White, won her seat representing northeast Philadelphia last year in a special election. In the video in which White’s disdain for the visitors who wanted her to know that her bill is “designed to hurt people” is simmering on the surface, she is seen shouting at her constituents and attempting to snatch a phone out of one of their hands, she says she “won’t be harassed in her own office.”
The visits were part of a lobbying day organized by multiple organizations concerned about the anti-immigrant bills.
Erika Almiron, executive director of Juntos, told Al Día news, “This won’t be the first time or the last time that we visit her. We’re not accepting a Trump in Pennsylvania.”
