Cassy Garcia (TX-28)

Republicans are looking to flip this congressional district from the eastern suburbs of San Antonio to the southern border. The district is 73% Hispanic, yet Cassy Garcia welcomed an endorsement from Elise Stefanik, who has echoed the same racist conspiracy theories as the racist mass murderer who attacked El Paso in 2019 and Buffalo in May. Garcia would be a rubber stamp for the Republican agenda and their failed chaos and cruelty approach to the border. She offers no real solutions to address the concerns at the border while her friends embrace dangerous conspiracy theories, jeopardizing all our safety.

Garcia accepted thousands of dollars from Kevin McCarthy and $10,000 from Elise Stefanik’s superPAC. She also took $10,000 from Sen. Ted Cruz’s superPAC even though Cruz, doubled down on the same racist conspiracy as the El Paso and Buffalo that inspired the mass murders just days after the tragedy in Buffalo.

Elise Stefanik (NY-21)

Currently, the third-ranking House Republican, Elise Stefanik, won her leadership position because she went along with the election lies that the election was stolen from Trump and refused to condemn the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Stefanik has also used her campaign to promote the white supremacist conspiracy theory that immigrants are trying to replace white people and overthrow our democracy. She has echoed the deadly lie about an “invasion” of non-white migrants at the border. Even after the racist mass murderer who attacked customers at a Buffalo grocery store echoed those very same lies, Stefanik doubled down on the dangerous language. Stefanik's lies about the election and an invasion are dangerous and distract from the fact that she wants to deny citizenship, block all refugees, and waste billions on a wall preferring to fear-monger about immigrants for her own selfish politics rather than work towards real solutions.

Donald Trump (No Office)

It is hard to overstate the role Trump has played in demonizing immigrants and radicalizing the GOP. In June of 2015, Donald Trump launched his first campaign for President by attacking immigrants, stating that Mexico was "sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." Trump continued his assault throughout his first campaign, the entirety of his presidency, and his second campaign. It continues in his post-presidency. He evoked the worst stereotypes about immigrants and refugees, while invoking the dangerous "invasion" rhetoric used by white nationalists. Unfortunately, Trump's party has followed him in lockstep. Xenophobia and racism have come to define the GOP in Trump's image.

Michael McCaul (TX-10)

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) is the former Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee. A longtime impediment to immigration reform, McCaul has recently embraced the dangerous invasion rhetoric on national tv. During a Fox News Sunday in April, McCaul stated, “Putin invaded Ukraine … We have an invasion in my home state right on the border, every day.” As a Texan, McCaul show know about the deadly consequences of that ‘invasion’ language. In 2019, a gunman killed 23 people at a Walmart in El Paso after posting an anti-immigrant manifesto, which stated the attack was a response to ‘the Hispanic invasion of Texas.’”

Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14)

If there is a bigoted conspiracy theory out there, Marjorie Taylor Greene has probably used her massive platform to amplify it. The Congresswoman from North Georgia isn’t just some harmless kook. The conspiracy theories Greene promotes have a real-world body count. She has spoken at white supremacist events and has repeatedly made bigoted remarks. Greene defended the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and has been a vocal promoter of lies trying to undermine the legitimacy of the last election. She has frequently echoed the deadly lie about an “invasion” of non-white migrants at the border. Though new to Congress, Greene has a prominent voice inside the party and will likely use any additional power she obtains from being in the Majority to stymie any and all efforts to address the real challenges working families face.

Call her out!
