A Democratic judge in Texas has ordered Texas not to arrest the Democrats who fled to Washington D.C. in order to avoid doing their duty. To make the decision even more corrupt is that the judge is siding against the law and a recent vote by the Texas house authorizes the arrest of those who try to hold the Texas Legislature hostage.
There will be another hearing on August 20th where the judge is making Texas authorities prove why they should be able to enforce the law. He should be making the Dems prove why they are above the law.
We really need a way to remove judges who make up their own laws instead of enforcing the laws. These Democratic judges are getting too bold. This should not be allowed to stand.
State District Judge Brad Urrutia, a Democrat, signed an order that prevents Gov Abbott from arresting the Democratic lawmakers and in essence, allows them to flaunt the law with impunity. They can now return home and enjoy freedom no matter what they do.
The people’s work will not get done and the Democrats just enjoyed a taxpayer vacation in the nation’s capital.
After the Democrats fled Texas to start their own super spreader of COVID-19, Abbott said:
“If these people want to be hanging out wherever they’re hanging out on this taxpayer-paid junket, they’re going to have to be prepared to do it for well over a year. As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done.”
The Texas Tribune reported:
A state district judge in Travis County issued an order blocking the arrest of House Democrats who have broken quorum by leaving the state, paving the way for those who remain outside of Texas to return home without threat of apprehension.

State District Judge Brad Urrutia, a Democrat, granted the temporary restraining order late Sunday night restricting Gov. Greg Abbott and House Speaker Dade Phelan from “detaining, confining or otherwise restricting” the free movement of House Democrats within the state or issuing any warrants ordering their confinement.
The order expires in 14 days unless extended by Urrutia. The court will hear arguments on a temporary injunction on Aug. 20 where Abbott and Phelan must show why a temporary injunction should not be filed against them.
