Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Declares ‘Invasion on the Southern Border’

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Texas governor Greg Abbott announced Tuesday that he will be invoking the “Invasion Clauses” of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions in an effort to regain control over the Texas-Mexico border.

Abbott made the announcement in a tweet, saying that the move will “fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.” The actions proposed will include:

  • Deploying the National Guard to the border and turning back immigrants trying to cross illegally
  • Sending DPS to the border to arrest and return people who crossed the border illegally
  • Build a border wall in multiple counties
  • Deploy gun boats to secure the border
  • Designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations
  • Enter into an agreement with other states to secure the border
  • Enter into agreements with foreign governments to enhance border security
  • Provide resources for border counties to increase their efforts to respond to the border invasion

Sara Carter reports…

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott finally did it. He’s had enough and announced Tuesday that he has invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions to declare the onslaught of migration crossing into the United States from Mexico as an invasion.

In a press release he posted on Twitter he said he will invoke “the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion. ”

He is authorizing the National Guard to “safeguard our border and to repel and turn back immigrants trying to cross the border illegally.”

The move to force immigrants to turn back is new and unique to the issue. Currently, every migrant that crosses has been given the opportunity to turn themselves into U.S. Customs and Border Protection, declare asylum and almost always is released into the country by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. That release is usually pendent upon an order to return to an immigration court at a later date but over the past year many migrants have been released by the DHS without the order.

Over the past fiscal year, there have been more than 2.1 million encounters at the nearly 2,000 mile U.S. Mexico border. It is an almost unheard of number and the situation has deteriorated considerably with more than 800 migrants already found dead by U.S. authorities as they attempt to traverse the dangerous terrain and weather into the United States. Moreover, nearly 1 million known got-a-ways have entered the United States and have disappeared into the country without any security measures in place to locate them, vet them and expel them from the nation.

Criminal background checks are useless for many of the migrants encountered, Border Patrol officials stressed to me. The background security checks are only used to see if a crime has been committed in the United States. The security checks are not extensive enough, say federal and local law enforcement officials. They noted that they rarely have access to possible crimes committed by illegal migrants outside of the U.S. In my new podcast series Dark Wars: The Border #DarkWarsPodcast we look in-depth at the litany of issues facing the United States as we continue to struggle with a chaotic border.

In fact, U.S. Officials, like former Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan told #TheSaraCarterShow that the situation is evolving into a national security nightmare for the United States. Many Texas residents and lawmakers, including recently elected Texas Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar, have chided the Biden Administration’s lack of response to the crisis.
