A Texas Republican Rep. who called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on illegal alien protesters was allegedly physically assaulted by a Texas Democrat Rep.
The statement from Matt Rinaldi:
Today, Representative Poncho Nevarez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said “I am illegal and here to stay.” Several Democrats encouraged the protestors to disobey law enforcement. When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues. During that time Poncho told me that he would “get me on the way to my car.” He later approached me and reiterated that “I had to leave at some point, and he would get me.” I made it clear that if he attempted to, in his words, “get me,” I would shoot him in self defense. I am currently under DPS protection. Several of my colleagues heard the threats made and witnessed Ramon assaulting me.

Where is the outrage from the media over this?
When a Republican candidate in Montana recently was accused of attacking a reported who was agitating him the media made it the top story in an attempt to help the Democrats.
Why is that same media not reporting this?
