According to a report in The Daily Caller, the Texas state Democrat who assaulted a GOP colleague has accused the Republican of being ‘racist.’
Matt Rinaldi, a Republican claimed that Democrat Poncho Nevarez threatened to kill him after Rinaldi called ICE to report several illegal immigrants.
According to reports, another Democrat Ramon Romero “physically assaulted him and had to be held back.”
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.
— Rep. Matt Rinaldi
Rep. Nevarez plays the ‘racist card’ by claiming that because Rinaldi called the police when several people identified themselves as “illegal immigrants.”
He’s a racist. He’s a bad person. We’re not going to allow people like that to get away with saying comments like that because they think nothing’s gonna happen to ’em.
— Rep. Poncho Nevarez
