The media has all but ignored it, but the border crisis continues to rage. So far, over 2 million border jumpers have crossed into the country.
Despite pleas from Texas Gov. Abbott, the Biden administration does nothing.
Now, the impact of this crisis is hurting communities all over the state. And one sheriff had to declare this is a full-blown “invasion.”
Kinney County, Texas, declared the “existence of an ‘invasion’” along the Texas border with Mexico. The declaration calls on Texas Governor Greg Abbott to also “acknowledge the existence of an invasion on our border with Mexico.” Five other counties spoke in support of Kinney County’s declaration…
The officials stated the county has been forced to “militarize our school campus with vehicle barriers to prevent high-speed chases from entering campus and injuring children.”
“As a Texan, this is not acceptable,” County Judge Tully Shahan wrote. “We will no longer allow the sovereignty of Texas to be invaded by those unwilling to obey our laws.”
The border crisis is only getting worse. Criminals, including smugglers and drug cartel members, are overrunning communities along the border.
It’s gotten so bad, that authorities had to erect barricades of a kind to prevent high-speed chases from running down children on school campuses.
Really, Joe? No concern for that?
Gov. Abbott had previously called on Biden and Harris to address this growing crisis. He said neither office responded.
Now a Kinney County sheriff is declaring this crisis an actual invasion and calling on the governor to do the same.
The county is relying on Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution and Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution.
If the state declares the border crisis an invasion, they might handle it very differently. They will consider border jumpers enemies that they can use force to repel.
It’s unclear what the governor will do or how this “invasion” will be addressed. Rest assured, though, that Biden will probably sue to overturn this declaration.
He refused to do anything when it was just a “border crisis.” He will certainly do little, even if it’s an “invasion.”
- The border crisis rages, with criminals and smugglers overrunning communities.
- Kinney County sheriff declared the crisis an “invasion.”
- He is calling on the Governor of Texas to do the same.
