Democrats In Texas Legislature Threaten Violence To Protect Illegal Aliens…

Texas is estimated to have more than 1 million illegal aliens, according to the Migration Policy Institute. During today’s final legislative session a group of angry protesters calling themselves illegal aliens attempted to disrupt the session by shouting, chanting and blowing whistles.

The issue they were protesting is a new law known as “SB4” or the anti-Sanctuary City Law, where Texas police chiefs and sheriffs are required to comply with federal requests to hold criminal suspects for possible deportation.

In response to the disruption, the Texas House leadership stopped the session and asked state troopers to clear the gallery. According to the LA Times the demonstration continued for about 20 minutes as officers led people out of the chamber peacefully in small groups. There were no reports of arrests.

However, State Rep. Ramon Romero, a Democrat from Fort Worth, and fellow Democrat Rep. Cesar Blanco of El Paso became physically violent upon hearing that Republican Matt Rinaldi called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to alert them to the centrally located gathering of illegal aliens.

A video of the altercation is below.

  1. ah yes. illegals in TX. mrs. PCS and i live in TX. she is a sonographer who does what most people call “ultrasound”. she comes home day after day with tales about how she has to deal with ADULT patients, mostly hispanic but also quite few middle eastern types, who she assumes are here “illegally” mostly because they do not speak A WORD of english. not a word. for example, she’ll have to do an ultrasound procedure known as a “transvaginal”— you can google it— but its exactly what you’re thinking it is— the probe goes inside there….and she has to attempt to explain what she’s going to do…to women who do not speak a word of english. sometimes, if the patient is say in their 40s or older, they may have a daughter (cough cough DREAMer) whose usually in their 20s at least…that DO speak english to translate/explain. if not, mrs. PCS has a service she is supposed to call that will translate for her. she tells translator what to explain…hands phone to patient…translator speaks…patient replies in foreign language, hands phone back to mrs. PCS…translator tells mrs. PCS what patient said to them….and back and forth until everyones ready to go. yeh that sounds efficient and fun / rolls eyes. and even the ones that do speak *some* english, she might ask them something simple like remove articles of clothing, lie down on the table and place a sheet (that she hands them) over a certain area of the body…and she’ll leave the room for a few minutes while the patient is supposed to be getting ready…5 minutes later she goes back in and they’ll be standing in the middle of the room…fully clothed. and the middle eastern ones, male or female…they typically don’t use deodorant, which is nice.

    • Up north here in Virginia. The issue of speaking English is a tricky one. I have met many here legally who don’t speak English, and some here illegally who are quite literate. Mainly depends on the age when they arrived and level of education. Here illegally also includes many who came with visas and overstayed. Many of those folks were professionals in their home county.

      BTW, it is not a requirement to know English to become a citizen if you are over a certain age. I know one person, legal resident, from Peru, who is an expert at working the system. She is 58, has been here 30 years, no job, not a word of English outside of hello and good morning. Her plan is to become citizen after 60 cause no English test.

              When politicians tell us we have to fix Social Security by taking it away, because Americans are living too long or whatever, they are only telling us half of the story, not even half.

        A relative of mine worked with a number of immigrant women. The employer was having a problem with the Spanish speakers talking rudely about the other employees, in Spanish. Some of the Spanish speakers maintained that they could not be expected to communicate in English, due to their unfamiliarity with even simple English phrases.
        A Spanish speaking woman from a different country told my relative that was a lie, because she knew that in the country those women came from, English was widely spoken, and street signs and advertising were in both English and Spanish.
        Interesting, the ones claiming low knowledge of English were from a county (Puerto Rico) where they were entitled to come here, and entitled to benefits when they got here.
        The woman from the other Spanish speaking country was not allowed to receive any government benefit for five years.

          BTW: in PR, English is not the native language; it is Spanish. Most everything in PR is carried out in Spanish, including most business.

          For the most part, the schooled lower middle class and all higher SES classes know English, although fluency may vary, but lower classes may often know very little or no English.

          And, basically having had very strong “anti-poverty” programs for generations, there is a lot of poverty in PR, so there are many without functional knowledge of English.

          Let me clear something out for you.

          The people of Puerto Rico can come and go to and from the continental US as many times as they want to, for one simple reason: we are American citizens, and we have been so since 1917. We don’t need to go through the whole immigration roller coaster.

          Yet, the question goes, why so little knowledge of English? It can be summarized in one word: resistance. When a people fight tooth and nail NOT to have English spoken, or taught at schools, or used in everyday life, they most likely won’t learn it. There was an intent to do so earlier in the 20th century, under American-appointed Governors, such as English-only in schools – but there was some serious resistance. In the end, it was abandoned. Yes, it did keep a people’s cultural identity intact – at a hefty price. You see, most people in their everyday lives over there use Spanish, and have no need to use English at all – especially after every last U.S. military presence in the Island was, sadly, expelled. Those who know English better than average usually do very well in their professions in the Island, or leave for the Mainland in search of better opportunities. However, the vast majority in the Island and of those who come here are poor – and speal very little or no English, because they never felt the need to learn it in the Island in the first place.

          Unfortunately, I found out a few years ago that not knowing English is considered a “disability” in PR, so many people receive Social Security Disability payments for that reason alone (?!?). That’s a waste and a disgrace.

          I was only 17 when I arrived to the Mainland for college. My first year of college was a disaster. Then, I realized after my first year living in the Mainland that I had to learn English if I was to make something of myself here in America. So, I turned the Spanish novelas off, took the bull by the horns, and learned English no matter what I used for it: TV, the newspaper, the dictionary, books, music… anything that helped me, I took. And guess what? I did it. I graduated college on the Honor Roll. I never regretted it. Nowadays, my entire communication is in English only. I still speak Spanish, sometimes, but not as much as I would like. But I’ve tutored Spanish to those who needed it. I still read books in Spanish. So, I still consider myself perfectly bilingual, which is fine. Twenty-seven years later, it’s all right with me.

          Too bad many fellow Puerto Ricans didn’t, or don’t, take advantage of the opportunity to learn English. It would have spared them many, many sorrows. Especially now that so many jobs have been lost in the Island. (There isn’t a job market there at all.)

    • If speaking English isn’t a requirement to become a citizen it should be. It used to be a matter of pride for the immigrants to learn and speak English. The Italians, Polish, Germans, Jews, Spaniards, Vietnamese, and all of the countries where they came legally were proud to assimilate into the American culture and embrace the American Dream. But these millions of illegals have changed all of that. The democrats have made it plain that the Latin illegals are too stupid to learn English so Spanish needs to be spoken so not to embarrass them. The amount of money the border states have to put out for these illegals is ridiculous! Our schools have to have a bi-lingual teacher as well as the regular teacher in each class so the Spanish speaking students will know what is going on. So that alone doubles the teacher salaries, then there are all the free lunches for illegals, the Medicaid, the ERs (because no one is turned away). The school taxes come out of land owner’s pockets and generally only legal citizens own homes and property. I back Governor Abbott 100% in trying to do away with sanctuary cities in Texas. I think this article forgot to mention that all the illegals wearing the red t-shirts, yelling and waving sign saying they are illegal and not leaving were bussed in from NY & CA just to try to cause trouble for our TX Legislature. I hope all of those from NY & CA are on the way back to their home country.

Hollywood movie star caught with an illegal cleaning their toliets equals a season picking strawberries. Landscape company caught with three illegals equals three seasons of picking melons. Clinton connected chicken processing corporation with too many illegals to counts equals CEO, the entire HR department, and the board of directors picking crops for the rest of their days.

    Okay, rant part over.
    I’d like to point out that Obama did much the same thing with his tranny rights push. The amendment meant to help the black slaves, who had been left stateless, might be considered one of the first civil rights acts. That effort to bring equal opportunity to a class of Americans, was exploited to confer rights on others who had no such claim to rights.
    Title 9 was an effort, a successful one, to guarantee equal opportunity to a class of Americans, women.
    Obama exploited Title 9, shamefully, to confer rights on a handful of people who had no claim to such rights, and worse even, his attempt was harmful to those Title 9 was meant to benefit.
    He looked around, saw whatever good thing about America he could convert into something ugly; he took acts by men of good will, in our past, acts that demonstrated our national commitment to our values, and twisted and perverted them just so he could call us prejudiced, racist, xenophobic, and whatever other vile names he could come up with, to label us.

That is the real La Raza, which receives federal funds 30 million in CA alone.

It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)
      We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”

    What may surprise you and likely anger you is that a legal immigrant can petition their parents for immigration and once they are here in the US, the parents are eligible to collect Social Security even though they never contributed to it in their lives. We can thank President Carter for that mess.

    Ironically, you still have to prove you can support your parents financially before their immigration status is approved. Not only can they collect Social Security but they can apply for Medicaid, etc. Our tax dollars at work.

    Illegals end up collecting free medical care and welfare at the state level including EBT (Electronic Benefit Cards). I remember reading that no less than five southern California hospitals had to close after being forced to treat illegals who never paid their medical bills. So local citizens had less choice of medical facilities as a result.

    I’m a Texan, born and bred. When I was growing up, my parents owned a large ranch outside of Marfa. This was back when Marfa was a nothing town and you had to drive 100+ miles to go out to eat. On their ranch, they kept a trailer house that served as a hunting base. Every time they drove out there from the Gulf Coast, the trailer had been trashed by folks crossing the border and looking for a place to sleep. Once they came in to find someone had written all over the walls with excrement. The author was found wandering into town later, clutching a knife and threatening people. The ranchers in that part of Texas are in a war for survival and it’s been that way for years.

    OTOH, I work in construction and without the skills and labor of the Hispanics I depend upon, I couldn’t get anything done. They’re hard workers, honest people, and only here to make a living. I can’t find locals who will show up on time, not whine, and do a good job for the same price.

    My husband is a first generation immigrant and when I asked his parents how they felt about illegal immigration they voiced extreme displeasure over the fact that they had to work hard to become Americans and now some people are awarded this status for free.

    My biggest concern is the fact that if the borders are this porous, why bother keeping our airport security so tight? All a terrorist needs to do is fly into Mexico and walk across the river.

    It’s a very complicated issue but I don’t think we can resolve anything until the borders, both south and north, are secure. In the meantime, why are we passing laws that insist cities follow the laws???

They will vote lockstep with the Democrats to take away guns, to take away free speech, and to force ethnic mandates that will keep your kids out of schools and jobs. I educate the kids of t Latino immigrants, this is their ideology. A better America could perhaps have integrated the majority of Latinos into our historic values. But this one won’t. schools, colleges, and the media all tell these kids that the historic America was evil and needs to be destroyed. They voted 75% for Clinton and that ratio will be more or less the same into the future. Clinton would certainly throw you into a reeducation camp if she could.

      Yes, I know that you can’t stay in business if you pay more than other construction firms. That’s why we need strict laws with strict enforcement so all of you have to pay more.

      If ANY Business Model cannot survive without an ILLEGAL component, it is ORGANIZED CRIME. ANY business that utilizes ILLEGAL labor does this at the expense of fellow citizens and displays unmitigated contempt for their Country and could never be considered conservative or patriotic.

        Thanks all for making this discussion one that challenges the issue–that’s what TCT is about and I appreciate it.

        So here’s a hypothetical: Say, you’re a small businessman and you employ 3 people, Americans, who are like a second family to you and have been with your company for ten years. You have an opportunity to snag a big job but can’t do it without hiring some unskilled labor. The life of your company depends on it. You can hire the less expensive person, get the job and save your company OR you can hire someone you must pay more, lose the job, and be forced to fire the three Americans you have working for you. Your company goes kaput.

        Which solution would you choose? Right now, without better laws, with a less than ideal situation, with no other paths to take?

        This is not my situation by any means, but I know a lot of small business owners and they have to make these choices all the time. Neither choice is a good one and hopefully you structure your business more efficiently but sometimes people have to choose between two bad options. That’s all I’m saying.

          What part of hiring Illegal Alien Labor is a Violation of Federal Law is unclear to you?

          All it takes is a call to the ICE Hotline to initiate an I-9 Audit…

          An I-9 audit is just what it sounds like: an audit by the Government to verify that an employer has correctly verified the right of its workers to legally work in the US. I-9 audits are conducted by the Immigrations & Custom Enforcement agency (ICE).

          An I-9 audit typically begins with a Notice of Intent (NOI) to inspect a company. It can be prompted by a tip-off from an angry employee or a consumer. In that stage, the government will want to visit the company and/or inspect its corporate records and I-9 verifications and business licenses and premises.

      It is not at all complicated!
      I worked construction for 35 years “doing the work American’s won’t do” and I’m American born and raised! You want slave labor. If they are here illegally they are NOT honest people. One of you contractors cheat and the honest contractors go broke OR they too are forced to cheat to survive. Nor is the quality of work that great. I spent a lot of time fixing the crap good hard working illegals created. You madam are part of the problem NOT the solution!

        Heard the exact same story from a master carpenter a couple weeks ago. He lost his job to illegals and now he is hired to go in and fix the crappy workmanship of the illegals so the house will pass inspection.

        I had my house built. The staircase rail was never fixed by the contractor dispite my complaints so I will probably have him fix it because it wobbles very badly. You can take the vertical dowels right out with no problem because the holes are way too deep. The darn thing is completely useless as a railing and would collapse if you ever had to put any weight on it.

        Also I have no insulation in the attic it was left stacked in a corner. The roof tiles were never glued down so the roof tiles blow up during a storm and thus let the rain rot the roof seathing and that is just for starters. Funny how this disaster of a house passed inspection without any fuss.

        I can’t sue because the guy, went out of business.

    “I can’t find locals who will (work)… for the same price”. BINGO. Illegals will work for next to nothing because it’s more than they make in Mexico. Legal Americans are worth paying the price.

    How dare that Republican even think about upholding the law or the Constitution in defense of borders, and national security!! How dare he dislike the fact that disruptive, subversives,illegals are there drowning out the work of Texas legislators, etc…..? How dare those police , who the protesters were NOT cooperating with their removal, actually physically remove them?? How dare our elected official say he would defend himself when threatened!! I say we just let the illegal immigrant community, and their “shake down” lawyers take over all state capitols!!! Viva, la Raza!! Viva illegal activity!!! NOT…….. Sheesh!! The nerve to flaunt their illegal activity,and then feign shock someone wants to call ICE!! This is your New America , folks, and those in Houston , and Austin better wake up, and FAST!!
