Both Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib spoke at the conference, NBC News reports, condemning Boebert for her actions and the violence her words could incite. Ocasio-Cortez and Boebert previously sparred it out over Twitter while talking about unemployment benefits.

“Representative Boebert, whatever her intentions may be, for her racism and flagrant bigotry needs to experience a consequence for her actions, whether she seeks it out or not. Because when we inconsistently apply consequences to bigotry, we invite more people to test these boundaries,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Boebert has now suddenly gone mute and was unavailable for comment regarding the resolution.
