“Gov. Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican, criticized state Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., on Monday in an effort to deprive the Legislature of a quorum, thus the ability to vote on the GOP’s sweeping elections overhaul bill.
Abbott appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday to defend the bill and say the missing lawmakers will be arrested upon their return to the state. He said members of the Texas House of Representatives who are still in the state can call for the arrests of their colleagues who do not show up to vote. The one caveat is the arrest has to be made in the state.
“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” he said.
The exodus was the second time that Democratic lawmakers have staged a walkout on the voting overhaul, a measure of their fierce opposition to proposals they say will make it harder for young people, people of color and people with disabilities to vote.
But like last month’s effort, there remains no clear path for Democrats to permanently block the voting measures, or a list of other contentious GOP-backed proposals up for debate.” foxnews
Comment: I understand the Dems. point of view. They want to flood Texas and the rest of the country with illegals in the belief that by hook or by crook they will succeed in making these poor, unfortunate people voters. In places like California they hope to vote them whether they are citizens or not. The Clinton California majority in 2016 points to that. There are many devious ways that you can do that if you want to.
They assume that Latin illegals will vote Left. IMO that is not a valid assumption. Latinos are typically family oriented, socially conservative, hard working people. If the Dems. succeed in re-designing the population of the US, the “new Americans” are not likely to be loyal to the neo-Marxist Democratic Party for very long. pl
