Missouri U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, R, who announced in December that he would be challenging the results of the electoral college vote on Wednesday, said Monday that “Antifa scumbags” came to his Washington D.C. home and threatened his wife and newborn daughter.

“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter,” he wrote on Twitter Monday night. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.”

ShutDownDC organized the protest outside of his home and livestreamed the event.

The 51-minute video shows the group gathered outside of his house chanting with megaphones and holding signs.

The Virginia Police Department breaks up the protest after 30 minutes, telling the demonstrators it might be illegal for them to protest there. The activists promised to return in the morning.

Before they left, they chanted, “we’ll be back” and placed a copy of the Constitution on his door.

ShutDownDC called the protest a “candlelight vigil” on their Twitter account.

Pro-Trump groups are expected to gather this week in D.C. as Congress is set to confirm President-elect Biden’s win on Wednesday.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has warned residents “not to engage” with the pro-Trump demonstrators and has deployed the National Guard.

For those who can’t comprehend the magnitude of what the Biden administration’s poor border policies have done, the nearly 7.3 million migrants who have illegally crossed the southwest border  on Biden’s watch is a greater amount than the population of 36 individual states.

A Fox News analysis looked at data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which shows the total number of southwest land border encounters since Biden assumed office in 2021 is 7,298,486. The CBP already reported 961,537 border encounters in the current fiscal year, which runs from October through September.

Fox News reports:

If the current pace of illegal immigration does not slow down, fiscal year 2024 will break last year’s record of 2,475,669 southwest border encounters — a number that by itself exceeds the population of New Mexico, a border state.

That is larger than the population of 36 U.S. states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The analysis found that compared to the largest U.S. states, the 7.3 million number is about 18.7% of California’s population of 39 million; 23.9% of the state of Texas and its 31 million residents; 32.3% of the population of Florida; and 37.3% of New York. It’s more than half the size of Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio.

Were the number of illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. under President Biden gathered together to found a city, it would be the second-largest city in America after New York. And the total does not include an estimated additional 1.8 million known “gotaways” who evaded law enforcement, which would make it bigger than New York.

This unprecedented surge in illegal immigration isn’t an accident. It is the result of deliberate policy choices by the Biden administration,” said Eric Ruark, Director of Research for Numbers USA, a nonprofit that advocates for immigration restrictions.
