Are illegals causing the race riots, or American Citizens? Is this coming to Texas too?

California Prison on Lockdown After Riot

A racially motivated riot at San Quentin State Prison left one inmate injured and prompted a lockdown of about 1,800 prisoners.

About 40 Hispanic and black inmates fought Saturday in the exercise yard after a cultural event marking the end of Black History Month, officials said.

Prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon called it a 'planned assault' by the Hispanic prisoners. One inmate was injured, and at least four homemade weapons were found.

'We did have one inmate who had been struck in the eye with either a punch or a kick,' Crittendon told radio station KCBS-AM.

Earlier this month, 16 inmates at San Quentin were injured during a riot involving more than 80 prisoners in the dining hall. Officials said they believed the incident began when Hispanics affiliated with the 'Nortenos' gang attacked a rival group of black prisoners.

In Southern California, more than 100 inmates have been injured and two killed in a series of racially motivated brawls this month at the Los Angeles County jail system.

Illegals are not usually members of the Nortenos.... so no.

They usually form into Border Brothers/Bandits gangs inside.

This is not universal nor set in stone, however.

As a result of a recent California court decision, Arizona prisons are beginning to re-integrate Mexicans into the general population. Just before Christmas all units statewide were placed on lockdown status and searched to prepare.

Wait and see.
