A group of activists followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a bathroom at Arizona State University on Friday to demand that the Democrat address immigration issues.

The activists, seemingly college-aged, confronted the senator outside the classroom where she teaches and followed her into the nearby bathroom, recording the incident as they walked.

'We knocked on doors for you to get you elected. Just how we got you elected, we can get you out of office if you don't support what you promised us,' one activist threatened.

Another, who introduced herself as Blanca, attempted to pull at Sinema's heartstrings by sharing a personal anecdote.

'I was brought here to the United States when I was three years old and in 2010 my grandparents both got deported because of S.B. 1070 and I'm here because I definitely believe that we need a pathway to citizenship,' Blanca said.

'My grandfather passed away two weeks ago and I was not able to go to Mexico and visit him because there is no pathway to citizenship. And if we have the opportunity to pass it right now than we need to do it because there's millions of undocumented people, just like me, who share the same story.'

The activists begged Sinema — who did not engage in discussion — to support President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

'We need the Build Back Better plan right now,' one is heard saying. 

'I am a survivor of human trafficking and it's because of the lack of work protections that we don't have. I need you to stand by workers...' another shared before the video cut off.

Sinema initially told the activists she was 'heading out' and couldn't speak at the time. When they continued to follow her into the restroom, she ignored them as she used the facilities and washed her hands.

Video of the encounter, which was shared on social media, prompted response from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) who has openly opposed illegal immigration.

He shared the video on Twitter with a caption reading: '#DeportBlanca.'

DailyMail.com has reached out to Sinema for comment.

Sinema is one of the key holdouts on Biden's $3.5 trillion social spending bill. 

She slammed leaders of her own party on Saturday over their 'inexcusable' failure to hold a vote on the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan. 

'The failure of the U.S. House to hold a vote on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is inexcusable, and deeply disappointing for communities across our country,' Sinema wrote.

'Denying Americans millions of good-paying jobs, safer roads, cleaner water, more reliable electricity, and better broadband only hurts everyday families.'
