Texas' Democratic lawmakers wasted no time blasting the Trump administration's denial of passports to border residents, calling it out as systematic Hispanic bias.

Now, S.A. Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro is trolling the fuck out his Republican colleagues for staying silent on the issue, calling out Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn by name.



 
Not surprisingly, neither senator has responded. The lion's share of Cruz's feed since then has been about his reelection campaign, while Cornyn has weighed in on Manu leaving the Spurs and revealed his man-crush on Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Good luck, Joaquin. Our guess is both these guys' heads will remain firmly planted in the sand.
