Texas state Rep. Trey Fischer (D), one of the dozens of Democrat state lawmakers who fled the state as part of a protest against the legislature’s pursual of measures to strengthen election integrity, claimed he and his colleagues chartered a flight to D.C. because “everybody” wanted to see them together.
Speaking on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday, Fischer defended their mode of transportation, contending it was what the people wanted to see.

“So, number one, when you break a quorum you want to be successful, so I think everybody wants to see 51, 52, 55 Democrats on the same plane. That’s reassuring,” Fischer said, referring to the picture showing several maskless, smiling Democrat lawmakers aboard the plane:

Smiling House Dems fly off to DC on a private jet with a case of Miller Lite, breaking House quorum, abandoning their constituents, while the Senate still works. It’s my hope that Senate Dems report tomorrow to do what they were elected to do. We will vote on #SB1. #txlege pic.twitter.com/5Kcc4emNFg

To avoid a vote, Texas Democrats jet off to DC on privately chartered planes — maskless, unlike all the little people who fly commercial. What a look. https://t.co/fLkcakHKbn

These delinquents are doing this to kill a bill that does things like make voting hours across counties the same. There isn’t a single thing in these bills that is “voter suppression.” This a giant charade. Texans should be furious, and vote all of these children out of office. https://t.co/8ZCB8vtMDK

“Number two, to get a flight out of town at a time certain – you know, getting everybody to come if from across the state – you need to fly privately,” Fischer continued, attempting to make the plane sound more ordinary by noting the absence of “fancy couches.”
“And, as you can see from the picture, we’re talking about the same kind of plane that the public uses every day,” he said. “There are no fancy couches or anything like that. This was just a regular plane that moved us from one state to another.”

According to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), the lawmakers will be arrested once they arrive back in the Lone Star State.
“What the law is, it’s in the Constitution, and that is the House, the State House of Representatives who were here in the Capitol in Austin right now, they do have the ability to issue a call to have their fellow members who are not showing up to be arrested, but only so long as that arrest is made in the state of Texas,” Abbott said during an appearance on The Ingraham Angle.
“That’s why they have fled the state. Once they step back into the state of Texas, they will be arrested and brought to the Texas Capitol, and we will be conducting business,” he added.
Vice President Kamala Harris is among those who have lavished the Democrats with praise, describing them as “leaders” who are “marching in the path that so many others before did when they fought and many died for our right to vote.”

Border Crisis

Hans von Spakovsky: Biden’s border crisis – crime problem in Texas a bad omen for rest of US

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., discusses worsening illegal immigration and Coca-Cola’s refusal to condemn treatment of Uyghurs in China

Supporters of illegal immigration like to portray all of the aliens now flooding across the southern border as benign individuals simply seeking a better life. Many no doubt are, but the latest report from the Texas Department of Public Safety shows just how dangerous some of them are.

That report outlines more than 573,000 criminal offenses committed by illegal aliens “over the course of their entire Texas criminal careers.” And that’s surely just the tip of the iceberg, as the report only covers state offenses, not federal crimes, not crimes committed in other states, and not crimes committed by aliens in the country legally.

But what a shocking catalogue of victimization of Texas residents it is. 

HANS VON SPAKOVSKY: TEXAS DEMOCRATS’ OUTRAGEOUS CLAIMS ABOUT ELECTION REFORMS HAVE NO CONNECTION TO REALITY

placeholder

The report by the famous Texas Rangers shows that over 344,000 criminal aliens were booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and June 30, 2021, of which over 235,000 were classified as illegal aliens. The criminal offenses with which they were charged included:

*1,245 homicides
*66,924 assaults
*17,456 burglaries
*72,835 drug charges
*980 kidnappings
*33,335 thefts
*4,155 robberies
*7.076 sexual assaults
*8,332 sexual offenses
*49,408 obstructing police charges
*8,317 weapons charges

Keep in mind, as the Texas report says, that these figures “represent the minimum number of crimes associated with criminal illegal aliens” (emphasis added). Why? Because Texas is counting as illegal aliens only those who “previously had an encounter” with the Department of Homeland Security that “resulted in their fingerprints being entered into the DHS IDENT database.” 

Except in a relatively small number of cases, aliens who enter the country illegally but “avoid detection by DHS” are not going to be identified as being in the country illegally when they are arrested for committing a crime in Texas.

There are two important points here. First, given the huge number of illegal aliens getting into the country without detection, the number of crimes committed by these aliens in Texas (and other states) is probably much higher than these already-unacceptable numbers.

Second, why were these 235,000 illegal aliens – who were identified because they had been previously detained by DHS – still in Texas, still present in this country, and thus able to commit their crimes? This is the consequence of the “catch and release” policy favored by liberal administrations, including the Biden administration, which the Trump administration tried to end.

The bottom line here is that, using just one of the appalling numbers highlighted by the Texas report, there are 1,245 Texans who would likely still be alive today if we were securing our border and vigorously enforcing our immigration laws by quickly and effectively deporting aliens whose first act is to enter the country illegally, and whose second act is to assault, kidnap, rob and murder our citizens.

As the Texas Department of Public Safety starkly says, this report, “identifies thousands of crimes that should not have occurred and thousands of victims that should not have been victimized because the perpetrator should not be here.” 

No truer words have been spoken about the illegal alien problem and the reckless open-border policy of the Biden administration.
