I’ll put a bullet in your head’: Fistfight nearly erupts on final day of contentious legislative session

AUSTIN — A shoving match and war of words nearly turned into a fistfight on the Texas House floor Monday, the final day of a bitterly contentious 140-day legislative session.

“This session has been very, very difficult,” said Rep. Celia Israel, D-Austin. “There are enough of us here who remember a time in Texas when respect and decorum ruled the day.”

Those rules flew out the House door when a group of protesters crashed the chamber’s gallery Monday, chanting opposition to the so-called sanctuary cities ban. Legislators approved a bill this year that would force local governments to enforce federal immigration laws, what opponents call a show-me-your-papers law.

As they protested, Latino Reps. Ramon Romero and Cesar Blanco, both Democrats, waved to the noisy crowd. Republican Matt Rinaldi of Irving, a fervent supporter of the anti-immigration legislation, approached the Latino Democrats. They said Rinaldi told them he had called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to report the protesters, who were largely Hispanic.

    Texas needs to take back control of their state, to many mexican and muslims in the state, and now that they’ve let to many businesses come in from California they also have to many left wing trouble makers their because they brought most of their workers with them! Getting worried about this hopefully great state!

    I wonder if these two pendedjos “Ramon Romero and Cesar Blanco” know what will happen if a US citizen tries to live illegally in Mexico. They have their head so far up their rear they only think as “mojados” and not as US citizens.

    There is a method of becoming a legal citizen of this country. IF you are not a legal citizen then you need to go through the process to assimilate to our culture. IF you decide to just jump a boarder wall and go to the local food stamp office to get free everything you are no longer a person I would consider a future citizen but a law breaker. I understand you have no idea what the laws and rules are, hell half of the US citizens don’t know, but this is no excuse. This also goes for the people that are causing these people to be taken by immigration and sent back to their home. You are the ones that are causing this problem. If you would work on promoting proper immigration these people would not be having to live through this horror. You are the ones causing these people so much heart ache. Grow up and do it right and this problem will go away. What do you get out of doing things illegally? Does this make you feel good inside? Do you think you are doing good for these people? Look at the pain you create.
