Illegals protest, lawmaker calls ICE

For some reason, the Texas House of Representatives met today despite the holiday -- and two representatives (one from each party) got into a fight and traded threats.

Should have held a barbecue instead.

From the Associated Press:
Texas lawmakers accused each other of assault and threatening each other's lives on Monday during a tense final day of the legislative session as hundreds of protesters opposing Texas' tough new anti-"sanctuary cities" law launched a raucous protest from the public gallery in the Texas House.
Demonstrators wearing red T-shirts reading "Lucha," or "fight" in Spanish, quietly filled hundreds of gallery seats as proceedings began. After about 40 minutes, they began to cheer, drowning out the lawmakers below.
OK, buried in the story was the good stuff:
But even after the protest ended, tensions remained high. Rep. Ramon Romero, a Democrat from Fort Worth, said he was standing with fellow Democratic Rep. Cesar Blanco of El Paso when Republican colleague Matt Rinaldi came over and said: "This is BS. That's why I called ICE."
Rinaldi, of Irving in suburban Dallas, and Blanco were then seen shouting at each other. A scuffle nearly ensued before other lawmakers separated the two.
At a news conference later Monday, several Democratic lawmakers accused Rinaldi of threatening to "put a bullet in the head" of Rep. Poncho Nevarez, a Democrat from the border town of Eagle Pass.
The lawmakers said the comments about gun play came during a second altercation moments after Rinaldi's encounter with Blanco.
Rinaldi said in a statement Monday afternoon that Nevarez had "threatened my life" on the House floor after he called ICE on several protesters holding signs saying that they were [illegal aliens].
Shouting down lawmakers, threatening their lives -- Democrats are looking more like fascists by the hour.

People who brag about violating our nation's laws should be deported. Period.

Democrats organized these illegal aliens to turn Texas into Mexico.

Just like they have done to much of California.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  1. Now that we have a president who loves America instead of hates it maybe we will start arresting these illegal aliens when they protest and out themselves. It's a target rich environment. GOC

  2. Question is, Did they put ICE on those guys in t-shirts?

  3. ICE picks and chooses their battles, I think. In this case, wisely. The Texas lege must adhere to a strict calendar, as defined by law. Today was the last day of the regular session. They aren't allowed to take today off, for any reason.

  4. Oh, this is how you get more Trump. And a great many of those protesters were bussed in from New Mexico. It's a joke.

  5. Thank you, God, for making me a Texan.

    Our legislature can only meet in odd-numbered years for 140 days unless called into special session by the Governor. For this, members are paid $7200 plus expenses.
    This means they have to get a real job in the real world, feel the effects of the laws they pass like the rest of us, and spend most of their time among their constituents.

    And ywt, they manage to accomplish more than our fulltime Congress.

  6. That's why we can't have nice things. People from New Mexico coming to Texas and complaining about us. I always go to New Mexico and spend some money. Okay, okay it's mostly speeding tickets but those twisty roads are so much fun and Santa Fe probably has my tickets as a budget item.

  7. "Should have held a barbecue..."
    Yeah, but it's that nasty Texas beef BBQ.

  8. The Republican later say he didn't actually call ICE, just said it to see the reaction. But he should have actually called.
    Texas Constitution, Article 3, Sec. 14. PRIVILEGED FROM ARREST. Senators and Representatives shall, except in cases of treason, felony, or breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during the session of the Legislature, and in going to and returning from the same.
    A death threat is a terroristic threat in Texas and a violation of the law. Arrest the Democrat. A Class A misdemeanor: http://www.justanswer.com/…/31r24-law-action-death-threat-t…
