(ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER) — A Golden West College student contends Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, made her cry and threatened her when she talked about being undocumented during an advocacy meeting on immigration reform in Washington, D.C.

A representative for the congressman who was present at the meeting calls the allegations “asinine,” saying 18-year-old Jessica Bravo is being used as a pawn for a political agenda and that the person who accompanied Bravo accused Rohrabacher of being a racist.

PICO National Network, a faith-based political advocacy group that Bravo was representing at the Feb. 6 meeting, sent out an email Thursday with its account of Bravo’s meeting and calling on House Speaker John Boehner to “publicly condemn the behavior of his colleague.”
