Rep. Joaquin Castro calls for Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to immediately resign

Wednesday, Rep. Joaquin Castro tweeted amid chaos in Capitol Hill “Senators @TedCruz and @HawleyMO should immediately resign.”

Many who replied to him agreed with some replies including:

“There HAVE to be consequences Mr Castro… there HAVE to be. This can’t stand.”

“both should be Immediately arrested for encoring a riot and sedition!!”

Exactly this. Exactly exactly this.


Hawley said in a statement at the time in which the chaos was still taking place “Thank you to the brave law enforcement officials who have put their lives on the line.”

He added “The violence must end, those who attacked police and broke the law must be prosecuted, and Congress must get back to work and finish its job.”

Senator Ted Cruz tweeted at the time:

Those storming the Capitol need to stop NOW.

The Constitution protects peaceful protest, but violence—from Left or Right— is ALWAYS wrong.

And those engaged in violence are hurting the cause they say they support.
