State Representatives primary role is to represent the citizens of their state and to uphold the law. But in the Texas Senate, Dem Rep. Poncho Nevarez assaulted GOP Rep. Matt Rinaldi for doing just that.
When protestors gathered at the Senate carrying signs that stated they were illegal migrants, Rinaldi called ICE on them. At this point, the “tolerant Left” decided the right thing to do would be to assault him.
Who does Nevarez think he is supposed to be representing? As a State Senator, his duty is to American citizens, not people who are here illegally and openly flouting the law. And the fact that he thinks to assault someone who has a different opinion to him is the right way to conduct himself shows a distinct lack of judgment and character.
He should do his job properly or get out of the way and let someone else do it!
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Matt Rinaldi, a Republican Texas state representative, claimed that his Democratic colleagues threatened and assaulted him when he called ICE on illegal immigrant protesters in the state capitol.
“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,” Rinaldi wrote on Facebook.
Rinaldi also said that Representative Ramon Romero “physically assaulted” him and other Democrats were “held back by colleagues.”
