Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is facing backlash from Democrats over comments he made following the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that claimed the lives of at least 19 children and two adults.

Cruz released a statement shortly after news of the shooting, saying, “Heidi and I are lifting up in prayer the entire Uvalde community during this devastating time and we mourn the lives that were taken by this act of evil.”

The senator also posted that portion of his statement on Twitter, which immediately drew criticism from Democratic lawmakers.

“Aren’t you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days—in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) also responded to Cruz, “F— you @tedcruz you care about a fetus but will let our children get slaughtered. Just get your ass to Cancun. You are useless.”
