"Mr. Trump, you're a racist and you can take your border wall and shove it up your ass," Vela wrote in a letter to Trump, first reported by the Texas Tribune.

Vela, who is of Mexican descent, represents a congressional district located along Texas' border with Mexico.

In his letter, he said he did not speak for all Mexican-Americans, but expressed disgust with Trump's rhetoric about Mexicans.

"While you would build more and bigger walls on the U.S.-Mexico border, I would tear the existing wall to pieces," Vela wrote in the letter. "Why any modern-thinking person would ever believe that building a wall along the border of a neighboring country, which is both our ally and one of our largest trading partners, is frankly astounding and asinine."

Let’s be honest - @realDonaldTrump is a loser. Count all his failed businesses. See how he cheated people w/ scams like Trump U.
See how @realDonaldTrump kept his father’s empire afloat using strategic corporate bankruptcies to skip out on debt.

.@RealDonaldTrump knows he’s a loser. His insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism.
But just because @realDonaldTrump is a loser everywhere else doesn’t mean he’ll lose this election.
.@RealDonaldTrump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors.
Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and @realDonaldTrump is a serious threat.
The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure @realDonaldTrump ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.
