Liberals have no regard for the rule of law. If you dare report illegal immigrants to the authorities, they’ll attack you… even if you’re an elected official!
Hundreds of liberal protesters flooded the public gallery in the Texas House on Monday, shutting down the work being done to speak out against the state’s sanctuary city crackdown. When a GOP lawmaker noticed many in the crowd were holding signs reading, “I am illegal and here to stay” he did what every public servant should do — he called ICE to report them!

Outraged, a Democratic collegue attacked him for it — and then complained that conservatives are allowed to defend themselves!
Activists wearing red T-shirts reading “Lucha,” or “Fight,” quietly filled hundreds of gallery seats as proceedings began. After about 40 minutes, they began to cheer, drowning out the lawmakers below. Protesters also blew whistles and chanted: “Illegals are here to stay!” and “Hey, hey, ho, ho, SB4 has got to go,” referring to the bill that Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law this month.

State House leadership stopped the session and asked state troopers to clear the gallery and restore order. The demonstration continued for about 20 minutes as officers led people out of the chamber.
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 B.S. — that’s why I called ICE.”
Romero thanked Rinaldi by attacking him. A scuffle ensued before other lawmakers separated the two.

Then, Democrat Rep. Poncho Nevarez warned Rinaldi that he’d be waiting for him in the parking lot.
Rinaldi sent a chilling warning of his own back: Be careful if you do, because this is Texas… and I’m armed.
Later, a group of Democratic lawmakers held a press conference to complain that Rinaldi threatened to “put a bullet in the head” of anyone that attacked him.

In a subsequent Facebook statement, Rinaldi admitted saying he’d called federal authorities and threatened to shoot Nevarez — but said his life was in danger, not the other way around.
“Nevarez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said ‘I am illegal and here to stay,'” Rinaldi wrote. He said Democrats were encouraging protesters to ignore police instructions and, “When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues.”
Rinaldi said Nevarez later “told me that he would ‘get me on the way to my car.'” Rinaldi said he responded by making it clear “I would shoot him in self-defense,” adding that he is currently under Texas Department of Public Safety protection.

Texas’ new law requires police chiefs and sheriffs — under the threat of jail and removal from office — to comply with federal requests to hold criminal suspects for possible deportation.
Texas has more than 1 million immigrants illegally in the country, according to the Migration Policy Institute.

Now, some are abandoning Texas for more liberal states.
Jose, a 43-year-old Mexican living in the U.S. illegally since 2001, and his wife Holly left Austin for Seattle in January in anticipation of Texas’ immigration crackdown.
Holly said as soon as Donald Trump was elected president, she and her husband began preparing to move. They expected Texas would “follow Trump’s agenda trying to force local law enforcement to do immigration’s job.” And when they heard Texas had approved a crackdown on “sanctuary cities” she said they “finalized the decision.”
Does this Texas House Rep have a right to defend himself?
