Texas Counties Declare an Official “Invasion” at the Southern Border

Border

Leaders from multiple Texas counties recently declared that their jurisdictions are officially under “invasion” amid the crisis taking place on America’s southern border. 

In a monumental event in Brackettville, Texas, on July 5th, six different counties announced their intentions to issue a border “invasion” declaration and urged Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott to release a similar declaration. The counties are Burnet, DeMitt, Goliad, Kinney, Medina, Terrell, and Uvalde. During the conference, Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan proclaimed, “The Biden administration won’t do a thing about it. We’re in over our head. We need help and we need Attorney General Ken Paxton and our governor to adopt an invasion under its definition in the constitution. Adopt that invasion and let’s move forward.”

Those in support of the “invasion” declarations argue that Biden and his administration have violated Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution. Article IV, Section 4 states that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.” Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution also allows for the Texas National Guard to “execute the laws of the State, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.” If Governor Abbot ultimately declares an invasion at the border, Texas will be able to send state officials to quell the surge of illegal immigration that has occurred over nearly the entire duration of the Biden administration. 

Governor Abbott appears ready to issue a statewide “invasion” declaration imminently. According to Abbott’s spokesman, Renae Eze, “It’s past time for President Biden and for both parties in Congress to do their jobs and secure our southern border. As the challenges on the border continue to increase, Texas will continue to take additional unprecedented action to address those challenges caused by the Biden Administration.”

In February, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich penned a landmark legal opinion that explicitly described the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border as an “invasion.” To quote the opinion, “The on-the-ground violence and lawlessness at Arizona’s border caused by cartels and gangs is extensive, well-documented, and persistent. It can satisfy the definition of ‘actually invaded’ and ‘invasion’ under the U.S. Constitution.” While Arizona is still yet to deploy any National Guard members to secure the border, two candidates running for Arizona governor this year have vowed to do just that. Republicans Kari Lake and Karrin Taylor Robson have each pledged to utilize National Guard troops to provide support along Arizona’s border with Mexico if elected in November. 

Local cities and towns located near the border with Mexico are being tormented on a daily basis by the illicit activities of non-citizens and those who illegally smuggle them into the United States. During the Brackettville event, Goliad County Judge Mike Bennet revealed exactly how overwhelmed his county has been since Biden has taken office by saying, “We have a sheriff’s office with two deputies on duty at any given time, and three to four times per week we have bailouts in our county, and it takes 150 percent of our sheriff’s office resources, leaving the rest of our county totally unprotected. We could barely make budget before all of this occurred, and now we are running way behind.” Goliad County is not alone. Estimates suggest that nearly 4 million illegal immigrants have entered the United States since Joe Biden became president in January of 2021. At this rate, the illegal immigrant population within the U.S. is set to double before Biden finishes his first term. This may sound like a dream to Democrats in large metropolitan areas, but it is absolutely unsustainable for the small, rural communities located in the Southwestern United States who are forced to deal with the ramifications of Biden’s open border on their own. 

America is not only being inundated with an influx of illegal migrants, but also with illicit drugs. During this fiscal year, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has already seized over 430,000 pounds of illegal drugs. This figure becomes increasingly alarming when one realizes that the significant majority of drugs seized by CBP are obtained at legal points of entry. This means that far more products are being transported into America illegally, and the 430,000 pounds simply represent a fraction of the total amount of dangerous drugs that are imported, risking the lives of countless Americans. In 2021, fentanyl overdoses sadly became the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18–45 for the first time in history, with a record of over 100,000 Americans dying from drug overdoses last year. No sensible person would want illegal drugs or illegal immigrants to flow unchecked into their communities, with the exception of two groups. Violent cartels and Democrats are the only two groups who seek to benefit from the situation at the border, and all other Americans are being victimized to support their relentless ambitions. 

America is most definitely being invaded by an unprecedented wave of illegal immigration. If more state and local officials are willing to follow the leadership of those at the Brackettville conference, perhaps America will be able to have a secure southern border prior to the next presidential administration.

All I can add is “Remember the ALAMO!” The current shadow administration will never do anything to improve this situation. Those who support Open Borders should be charged with Insurrection, which falls under 18 U.S. Code § 2383defined as, an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government… By doing so all those who support this including all Democrats can be immediately removed from Congress and Government, and if convicted, can never serve in any capacity in government again.

Add this to my previous post:

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645)

Most of these are NOT border counties, they are interior counties affected because the head further inland to settle. They are mainly entering through Webb Co. – Laredo, Hidalgo Co, La Joya, Mission area, Cameron Co, Starr Co, and Val Verde – Del Rio area. We can’t accommodate all these people, we DO NOT have enough housing for our own Legal citizens.

In 2008, I took a motorcycle ride to Tombstone, AZ. There are places posted “off limits” within the numerous national parks due to violent cartel drug trafficking… this invasion is nothing new, its just been IGNORED year after year by politicians. More people die from fentanyl than COVID now. Where’s the “30 days to flatten the curve” now?

This is why so many folks are moving to Texas. They actually seem to have common sense! What the tyrants in Washington D.C. refuse to acknowledge the Texas officials are openly declaring. Grandpa Joe has got to go! (as well as his socialist party). Our very sovereignty as a nation is at stake.

All of this could have been avoided if the federal government had carried out their obligations under federal law and the Constitution by enforcing the immigration laws on the books and securing the border. In other words, federal government, DO YOUR DAMN JOB!

Since VP harris is the “Boarder Czar”, could she be charged with the murder of 53 illegals found in the semi trailer near San Antonio? Get her convicted of 53 counts of murder (or involuntary manslaughter).

The only effective way to stem immigration, short of doing them physical harm, is to return them to (a) the country from which they entered the US; (b) establish a penal holding on an offshore island and set them free there with promise of execution should they ever again put foot on USA territory without permission. Also, any illegal adult that is found guilty be given a choice of execution OR return to their native country under the condition that they will be executed if they re-enter the country again in the future. That sounds inhumane, but it may be the only touch strong enough to deter them. As recent as a little less than a century back, immigration was a big plus for the Nation, but alas, it is not the case in these times and not likely to be so in the foreseeable future.
