I previously wrote a story about the whole scuffle that Rinaldi had on the House floor with Texas Democrats after he called the ICE on Hispanic protestors. Many claims were made by Democrats that Rinaldi was violent with them and without any proof on either side of the argument, it was difficult to know what or who to believe.
But now, we have a video of the incident and things just got a lot more interesting.
The protests were about the new legislation banning sanctuary cities in Texas. Many Hispanics were not happy about it and came out in their numbers to show their displeasure.
Rinaldi called the ICE to deal with the many protestors and as you can imagine, it enraged a lot of Hispanic lawmakers.
Rinaldi claimed that he was assaulted for his actions. He wrote on
He wrote on Social Media: “Today, Representative Poncho 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.’ Several Democrats encouraged the protestors 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.”
And the threats continued:
“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.’ I made it clear that if he attempted to, in his words, ‘get me,’ I would shoot him in self-defense.”
But the Democrats wouldn’t confess their wrongdoings (typical of Democrats) even though according to Rinaldi, there were many witnesses who “heard the threats made and witnessed Ramon assaulting me.”
You can’t really hear much from the video but in watching it, who do you think is the most violent party? The answer is pretty obvious.
