Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas made a deal with MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle that he would support an “unlimited number of refugees” to the U.S. as long as Ruhle opened up her “fancy apartment” for the migrants.
Cotton, who is an immigration hawk, made the pledge in a Twitter exchange over the weekend.
The lawmaker tweeted, “I applaud the administration’s efforts to fix our broken asylum system. Individuals with valid asylum claims should apply in their home countries or a safe third country, not by showing up at our border.”
Ruhle replied snarkily, “In a perfect world, they would send hand written notes on letter press & fill out the necessary paper work with fountain pens.”
