managed to track down Barbara Boxer, a Democrat and an incumbent Senator out here in California (the other being Diane Feinstein), at a stump speech in town. EdWonk managed to wiggle to the front of the media pack with a tape recorder and when a reporter couldn't come up with a question stuck his nose out with his own.
Here's a little taste, head over there for the rest (make sure you bookmark them too, they are a great read on everything education related.).
When Boxer asked a reporter if he had any questions, he said "Oh I don't have any questions." It was at this moment that I said, "Senator.. I do!" Boxer then turned to me.
Transcript (from audio tape)

You'll have to head over there for her response and the aftermath.
For those of you not living near the borders and not seeing it as an issue, note that EdWonk lives nine miles from the border and deals with the problems it causes daily.
