A meeting held by the “Republic of Texas” on the morning of Valentine’s Day in Bryan, Texas, was raided by at least 20 officers from the Bryan Police Department, the Brazos and Kerr County Sheriffs’ offices, the Texas District Attorney’s office, the Texas Rangers, and the FBI, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The so-called “Republic of Texas,” a group that believes the state of Texas was unlawfully annexed in 1845 and wishes for the state to be recognized as an independent nation, sent legal summons to a Kerr County judge and a banker to appear before a Republic of Texas court over the foreclosure of a residence belonging to a member of the group:
In the end, at least 20 officers corralled, searched and fingerprinted all 60 meeting attendees, before seizing all cellphones and recording equipment in a Valentine’s Day 2015 raid on the Texas separatist group.
The justification for the raid was the Republic of Texas “simulating legal process.”
