Texas Reps Scuffle, Make Death Threats At Immigration Protest
12 June, 2017, 19:02 | Author: Miranda Cannon
The resistance in Texas is coming too late for a small portion of foreign-born residents who have begun evacuating the state, fearing policies that could make their ordinary lives more hard. Matt Rinaldi, R-Irving, made a decision to call upon U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement to halt the lawful demonstrations against Senate Bill 4. By 10 a.m., hundreds of peaceful protesters waving anti-SB4 posters and chanting "here to stay" had crowded the capitol building halls and House gallery - and lawmakers had noticed.
Rinaldi also claims that he was threatened and assaulted by other Democratic representatives who became outraged after telling them that he had called ICE after he saw several signs stating "I am illegal and here to stay".
State Rep. Matt Rinaldi, R-Farmers Branch, spent his Memorial Day turning the House floor into a battlefield, picking fights with protestors and colleagues for exercising that freedom.
Rinaldi added in hisTwitterpost that several Democrats "encouraged the protesters to disobey law enforcement" and alleged that his life had been threatened.
Following a fracas on the Texas Statehouse floor on Monday, Republican Texas state Rep. Matt Rinaldi said Monday he was prepared to "shoot" a Democratic fellow representative - "in self defense", of course.
Texas Democrats say they're now gunning for Rinaldi's seat. There's no audio of the confrontation, which was broken up by Department of Public Safety officers, to confirm either allegation. No punches were thrown, he told the Current, but Rinaldi's words still left a mark. The lawmaker has gone to say that his life is in danger having received threats from Democratic lawmakers.
Rep. Justin Rodriguez, a San Antonio Democrat, was one of the lawmakers involved in the scuffle. "After SB4, nothing was the same", he said.
"He came up to us and said, 'I'm glad I just called ICE to have all these people deported, '" state Rep. César Blanco, D-El Paso, tells The Texas Tribune. It also threatens to jail law enforcement officials who limit cooperation with federal immigration agents. Some came from as far as Arizona to protest a "sanctuary city" crackdown that will allow police starting September to ask people during routine stops whether they're in the USA legally.
Blanco accused Rinaldi of making "hateful and disparaging comments" towards Hispanics and immigrants during a conversation on Monday about protests over Senate Bill 4, a controversial legislation that, among other things, bans sanctuary cities. They informed anxious immigrants about rights they retain despite the law, urged grassroots resistance against it and were joining local organizers for an all-day Monday rally on the grounds of the Texas Capitol.
