In a strongly worded tweetstorm on Christmas Eve, U.S. Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., took the liberal bias of the New York Times to task over a fact-challenged article on immigration policy.

On Dec. 23, the Times published a lengthy article criticizing President Trump’s immigration agenda. Claiming that Trump was “stoking fears,” the Times characterized the views of Americans who support President Trump’s immigration policies as “nativist,” suggested that the president was somehow attempting to defy the government, got the facts wrong about refugees in several places, and misrepresented a statement Sen. Cotton made to boot.

So Cotton had a “few thoughts” to share:

Senator Cotton is a conservative stalwart on the immigration issue in the U.S. Senate. He is the co-author, along with Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., of the RAISE Act immigration reform legislation — a bill that would end the illogical diversity immigration lottery, end chain migration, and prioritize highly skilled, meritorious immigrants who would be the best contributors to American society.

In short, Sen. Cotton knows his stuff on immigration. So when he calls out the New York Times for their B.S., listen up.
