Today is the final day of the bitterly contentious 140-day legislative session of the Texas State House of Representatives.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
A group of protesters crashed the chamber, chanting in Spanish and holding signs that say “I am illegal and here to stay”.
When Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi called ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on the protesters, Democrat Rep. Poncho Nevarez threatened Rinaldi’s life — that he would “get” Rinaldi on the way to the latter’s car — while another Democrat, Rep. Ramon Romero, physically assaulted Rinaldi.
In partisan language, Brandi Grissom and Robert T. Garrett report for Dallas News (note that Grissom and Garrett archly call the Republican representative “far right,” while the Democratic reps. are not “far left” but merely Democrats):
“[A] group of protesters crashed the chamber’s gallery Monday, chanting opposition to the so-called sanctuary cities ban. Legislators approved a bill this year that would force local governments to enforce federal immigration laws, what opponents call a show-me-your-papers law.
As they protested, Latino Reps. Ramon Romero and Cesar Blanco, both Democrats, waved to the noisy crowd. Far-right Republican Matt Rinaldi of Irving, a fervent supporter of the anti-immigration legislation, approached the Latino Democrats. They said Rinaldi told them he had called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to report the protesters, who were largely Hispanic.
The Democrats were enraged. A shoving match ensued, and later lawmakers accused one another of making violent threats. Rinaldi said a Democrat threatened to ‘come get’ him. Rep. Justin Rodriguez, D-San Antonio, who was near the scrum, said he heard Rinaldi say, ‘I’ll put a bullet in his head,’ to another Democrat in the scrum.
‘He’s a broken person, and I hope his community realizes that,’ Rodriguez said during a press conference later.
Rep. Rinaldi issued this statement on Twitter:
That’s Democrats for ya — they go into a homicidal rage if you actually try to enforce U.S. laws.
