Matt Rinaldi, a member of the Texas House of Representatives, had his life threatened by a Democratic fellow lawmaker during a Memorial Day closing session.
According to the story in Breitbart, Rinaldi was also physically assaulted by another Democrat.
Rinaldi posted on social media that Dem representative Poncho Nevarez threatened to kill him after Rinaldi called ICE to report illegal immigrants crashing the House floor.
“You have to leave at some point. I’ll get you before you get to your car,” Nevarez said.
Ramon Romero, another Democrat, provoked a physical altercation with Rinaldi.
Rinaldi claims to have told Nevarez that he was armed, and if ambushed in the parking lot, he would shoot the Democrat in self-defense. The Republican also wrote that he is currently under police protection.
