A large protest against Texas’ new sanctuary city law on Monday disrupted the last day of the state Legislature’s regular session.
Texas state Rep. Matt Rinaldi (R-Irving) and several Democrats reportedly exchanged angry words on the state House floor, according the the Texas Tribune.
Several members said that Rinaldi told a group of Hispanic lawmakers that he had called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials on the protesters.
This is an encouraging sign. The illusion of civility with an enemy which is quite open about its goal of entirely replacing us and depriving us of all political and social power must be shattered. Politics in a multi-ethnic society is total war. And it is time we waged it as such. It is time we took our own side.
Rinaldi said he called ICE because he didn’t know how to handle the large protest.
“A lot of people had signs that said, ‘We are illegal and here to stay,'” he told the paper. “And we called law enforcement trying to incentivize them to leave the House. They were disrupting. They were breaking the law.”
Romero told The Austin American-Statesman that Rinaldi “felt like he needed to call ICE” despite Texas Department of Public Safety officers removing protesters from House galleries.
Rinaldi countered that Democrats had incited a riot by encouraging demonstrators, adding that they threatened his life on the House floor.
“Today Representative [Alfonso] “Poncho” Nevarez [D-Eagle Pass] threatened me 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,'” he wrote on Facebook. “Several Democrats encouraged the protesters to disobey law enforcement.”
“When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues,” Rinaldi added.
“During that time Poncho told me that he would ‘get me on the way to my car.’ He later approached me and reiterated that ‘I had to leave at some point, and he would get me.'”
Rinaldi vowed to defend himself against Nevarez.
Excellent. It is time to bodyslam the anti-White Left.
