This happened earlier on Thursday: Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) brought it before Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson. Just watch. Wow.

“I just would like for you to let him know how shameful all the tweets that he put out this morning, how offended and insulted I am as an American citizen,” Velázquez said at the beginning of her remarks.

“Puerto Ricans didn’t invite the United States armed forces. It was invaded. So with that invasion, comes responsibility,” Velázquez added later.
