Members of the Texas House Democratic Caucus, who fled the state to hold a quorum in a special session on Monday to consider an election security bill, attacked Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Republicans on Tuesday for trying to suppress minority votes. they did.

“We’ve never seen so many setbacks in people’s right to vote,” Vice President Mark Vizey, of Texas, said in the middle of the last century, introducing state lawmakers who flew from Houston on Monday. “They made great sacrifices to be here today … so all Americans, regardless of race, income, or affiliation, have the right to vote.”

The song “We Will Win” was also performed at a press conference outside the Capitol building in Washington.

The successive arrival of Texas Democrats after Veasey promises to do everything possible to kill the GOP-backed legislation, forcing it to keep the voter list more active, among other things; prohibition of voting by driving; codification of access of polling station observers to the polling station; banning ballot papers sent by mail, etc.

TEXAS ‘ABBOTT SAYS HE WILL BE ARRESTED FOR RETURNING DEMONS WHO “LEFT” THE ELECTION STATE

Texas Democrats have linked the election security bill to former President Trump’s false allegations that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, particularly as Texas Republicans refused to speak out against the former president.

“Strict regulation of the system, the foundation of democracy, and the violation of the rights of all Texans … that’s the price you’re willing to take y to change Trump’s prayer,” Tony Rose said.

“These Republicans in this House of Representatives may have replaced Christ with Jesus and Trump. But I didn’t,” Senator Thompson added.

Democrats in Texas are criticizing Republicans for trying to flee the state – Republicans say they are refusing to do their job and Democrats have vowed to serve their terms and eventually repeal the election bill.

“Instead of demonstrating Texas and the USSR’s election integrity laws, Texas Democrats walked out of a special session, boarded private planes, went to town, and gave up their constituents,” the Heritage Action president said. Jessica Anderson. Texas law, he told Acesparks. “With this political dubbing, Texas Democrats have turned their backs on the majority of Texans who support efforts to ensure the integrity of the election, such as voter identification requirements and protection from ballot collection.”

TEXAS DEMS DEMS FOR “PERSONAL SACRIFICE” TO INFORM THEMSELVES

When Governor Greg Abbott returns to Texas at Ingraham Corner on Monday, Democratic lawmakers will be arrested and brought to the Capitol, where there will be a quorum for doing business in a special session. He said the state intends to continue convening 30-day special sessions until the law is passed.

But Texas Democrats are hoping they can beat Abbott by putting pressure on Congress to demand one of the two election bills the Democrats are pushing for. But perhaps this could be a futile move, as these bills do not have the support of Republicans in the Senate, and Democrats do not have the vote to remove the filibuster.

“That’s exactly what we know to do. We’re very open to those eyes,” said Chris Turner, chairman of the Texas Democratic Party. “Our goal is not to attend this session and not to kill. During this time, the people of this building are appealing behind us for federal legislation on the right to vote.”

Rafael Anchia, chairman of the Mexican-American Legislative Group in Texas, also accused Abbott of forcing the governor to act like a king, saying Democrats would not come out with anti-democratic rhetoric. The process during the words in Snish.

Translated into English, Anchia accused Texas Republicans of supporting Trump’s fraudulent election claims and defended fellow Democrats from serious attacks after they posed for pictures with Miller Lites on a private plane to DC High School on Monday.

“We don’t want to cling to the big lie in Texas,” Anchia said. “We’re not smiling here, we’re not kicking the ball, we’re not saying we’re happy. In fact, we care about democracy in Texas.”
