Houston FBI says there’s no specific or substantiated threats to our area regarding Inauguration Day

Green spent Martin Luther King Day remembering that dark day in our country’s history.

"From my office with my staff, we could see persons climbing up the walls, we could see persons pushing in the doors. We could see destruction we never thought we would see," Green said.

Green says he was targeted by some of the Washington, D.C. rioters on a flight back to Houston.

"We can not allow our differences to destroy us starting with that flight and all future flights," he said. "We want to make sure that people are aware of the penalty associated with creating a disturbance or disruption while a plane is in flight."
