Texas Republicans approve measure to arrest Dems who fled state to avoid vote

A group of Democratic lawmakers in Texas made headlines this week when they fled the state in an attempt to block a bill aimed at preventing voter fraud.

In response, Republicans have ordered state law enforcement officers to arrest the absent politicians upon their return to the Lone Star State.

“Bold, courageous action”

According to Breitbart, the decision came on Tuesday as the result of a 76-4 vote among the remaining members of the state House. As a result of the vote, state troopers are authorized to take the Democratic members into custody, though doing so will be a challenge since the lawmakers are currently in D.C. and outside of the department’s jurisdiction.

Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick offered his thanks to the 22 state senators “who are here for a quorum today as the Senate will do our business this week.”

The Democratic lawmakers left the state in an attempt to prevent a quorum in the House that would be necessary to advance a controversial voter reform bill.

On Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris praised those who fled Texas and compared them to civil rights icons from throughout the nation’s history.

“They took bold, courageous action in line with the legacy of Frederick Douglass, to the legacy that involves women who marched down Pennsylvania Avenue, and all those folks who shed blood on the bridge in 1965 to pass the Voting Rights Act,” she said.

“Playing a political stunt”

In reference to the Texas Democrats’ ploy, Harris declared that they “traveled to Washington, D.C., at great sacrifice, to stand up for the American right to vote unencumbered.”

Of course, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others in his party saw things much differently.

“Last I checked, the heroic civil rights protesters on the Edmund Pettus Bridge were not in a private chartered jet, they didn’t have a case of Miller Lite next to them,” Cruz said.

He dismissed the participants as “partisan Democrats playing a political stunt” in the pursuit of “media attention.”

The senator went on to predict that the lawmakers would be arrested upon setting foot back in Texas, a move that Republican Gov. Greg Abbott also endorsed.

  8. I hope these degenerate Democrats from Texas are arrested or shot for opposing free speech and the law of the land in Texas. These Communist animals deserve whatever they get.

  9. Since the Dem. Reps. left their electred position durig an active session of congress, the Gov. should dock their paychecks for every day they’re MIA.

  10. Good they deserve to be imprisoned. They are being derelict in their duties! Never before in Texas voting history have we had drive by voting nor drop of ballots and look what a mess the 2020 elections turned out to be! Voter ID should be mandatory.

  11. Were you working for the Private Sector and decided that you and the company were not in agreement, walked of the job and then wanted your salary continued…..Your butt would be left swinging in the wind…..As a sissyfied elected DIM Oaf-ficial your going to get paid, keep your job and run for office again….Since when does dereliction of duty merit getting a salary and keeping a job your trusted to do?????

  12. Everyone of them should lose their position and be replaced with a responsible citizen who shows up to work, on time, and votes when they are supposed to vote. They should be arrested. They should have their pay docked as well. Looks to me that they are overpaid as well. Who supplied the private jet? Did the DNC or a private party pay for their “escape”? Who is footing the bill while they are in DC? Taxpayers? To compare them to MLK is disgusting. To make them out as heroes is disgusting. Cowards is more like it. Failures. Failed to do their job. Enough said. Democrat politicians in this country are disgusting and evil.

  13. They’re ALL partisan COWARDS!! They FLED because they have NO arguments against the legislation that will stand up to scrutiny. So, instead of debating, they RAN and left the state! That should be considered TREASON and they should be treated accordingly!!

  14. lock them up…they are paid to do a job for their constituents….not political games…they are clowns…MLK would condemn their acts of stupidity.

  15. ARREST THEM!!! Fire everyone of them and make them pay their salary back to the state for failing to do their job!!!!

  17. It is about time to make Democrats toe the mark. Dems. flee Gov Abbott is 100% right Dems don’t do their job fine them and jail them, serves them right.

  18. Stay the course Governor Abbott, they have committed insurrection and should face justice! This is a test of our justice system and will show if we can trust at least the Texas part of it! And no bail for insurrection! They have proven they are a flight risk!

  19. Kamala is just like them. She runs around the nation hiding from her responsibilities too. She has done nothing since January as if she is waiting for Biden to fall down so she can be president, which she is no way qualified to be. The Democrats in Texas, or not in Texas, are worthless. The law is being changed to insure live , honest Texans can cast their vote without them being wiped out fraudulently by harvesters, criminals and anarchists. Kamala Harris is a dud!

  20. Enough of all the nonsense – arrest the damn fools and fine them too. Do what’s right for our State and Country instead of whatever strikes your fancy.
