Texas House Proceedings Disrupted After Protesters Chanted Against Sanctuary Law

Another Democratic representative, Philip Cortez, told the Washington Post that Rinaldi "came up to us" and pointedly said he had called immigration authorities.

"If you go back and how it started is this gentleman got in the faces of some of my colleagues and I was standing a few feet away from them", Nevarez said.

The dispute is one of many now being fought around the country around so-called sanctuary cities and laws that could lead to an increase of racially-profiled arrests and an increase of federal powers over local law enforcement authorities with a provision that threatens local police with jail time if they impede a federal immigration investigation.

Cunningham, who was off duty, was at the scene because he was working a second job as security for the recreation center. Mandl told Garmback and Loehmann to investigate a report of a "guy with a gun" scaring people outside the center.

It was Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi who said he'd call immigration police on the protesters, but officials say they never got that call. During that time Poncho told me that he would "get me on the way to my auto". Another lawmaker, Republican Pat Fallon, witnessed the initial shoving match and tried to break it up. "No one has totally clean hands but what happened on the floor with the physical attack on Matt was beyond the pale", Republican state Rep. Jeff Leach said. During that time Poncho told me he would 'get me on the way to my vehicle.' He later approached me and reiterated that "I had to leave at some point and he would get me", Rinaldi wrote.

"There was a subsequent exchange between my brother Poncho and Representative Rinaldi and there was a threat made from Rinaldi to put a bullet in one of my colleague's heads", State Rep. Justin Rodriguez (D., San Antonio) said after the incident. "He saw people that, whether he likes to accept it or not, in his heart, he has hate for those people, and he wants to see them gone".

Blanco shared audio on Twitter of what appeared to phone call from a Rinaldi supporter.

CNN host Kate Bolduan called the assault of a Texas GOP representative by a Texas Democratic representative "democracy in action" after reports emerged that the two men faced off over protestors during a Monday session at the Texas House of Representatives.

In a statement posted on Facebook, Representative Rinaldi admitted he did make the threat, but only after he says Nevarez threatened his life. "Both were created to incite each other", said Rinaldi.

"I am now under [Department of Public Safety] protection", he continued.
