Texas Fights Outloud

Declare an Invasion Now

DEMAND ACTION ON THE BORDER

 

Five more Texas counties have joined in calling the crisis on our southern border “an invasion,” bringing the total number of counties that have done so to seventeen. Ellis County was particularly pointed in placing responsibility on the Governor to “immediately prevent and/or remove all persons trespassing as well as invading the sovereignty of Texas and that of the United States.”

Ellis County is south of Dallas, a full seven hours away from the border, yet to a man, the Commissioners recognized that the flood of drugs and unvetted illegals issuing from those border counties affects all of Texas. Just the explosion of fentanyl alone in the state has far reaching impacts on the safety of our communities, and the mental health and well being of our citizens. Crime rates and incidence of drug overdoses are the stats that tell the story.

The open wounds at our border can only be staunched if you, Governor Abbott, invoke Article I, Section 10 of the United States Constitution and Article IV, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution. Returning illegal border crossers to their point of entry or bussing them to hotels in New York City and D.C. is ineffective in stemming the tide of drug smuggling and human trafficking.

We’ve seen the drone footage of the cartels’ foot soldiers imbedding themselves on the U.S. side of the Arizona border. They are taking ownership of the border on both sides. How long until the narco-terrorists do the same on Texas land? This sort of thing has been commonplace in Mexico, and now it’s here. Will it take the invasion becoming a full occupation for you to take the vital and necessary action to uphold and protect our state’s sovereignty? By then, Governor, I’m afraid it will be too late. By then you will need more than the National Guard. You will need an army.

The hour is late. The time is now to take decisive and definitive action to protect our sovereignty. Declare an invasion, invoke the Constitutions of our country and our state. Unshackle law enforcement at all levels to do its job.

Do the right thing.  The citizens of this great state implore you.
