Response to SouthBayDem (Original post)

12. The Court ruling is justified...

…based on Texas and Federal law.

I’m not disputing what the Texas House Democrats are doing. But legally speaking, a legislature can compel the attendance of its members. People need to atop reacting emotionally to “arrested” and understand that it doesn’t mean sending them to jail, it means returning them to the legislative chamber to vote on the policy issues before the chamber.

Nb - I suspect you’d find that rule existed long before the Republicans took control of the Texas legislature.
