    7 Days After Election Win, Abbott Declares War at Border – Deploys Troops, Arms Waterways, Brings Wall Construction Back

    Published on

    Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott proclaimed an invasion at the southern border on Tuesday, using state authority to bolster security and deport unauthorized immigrants to Mexico.

    By invoking the Texas Constitution’s Invasion Clause, Abbott was able to erect a border wall, declare the Mexican drug cartels foreign terrorist organizations, and send personnel from the National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to turn back illegal immigrants to Mexico.

    According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, interactions with migrants at the southern border are on track to set a new record after reaching at least 2.3 million in the fiscal year 2022.

    In response to Abbott’s long-standing criticism that the Biden administration had not done enough to stem the tide of illegal immigration, the state’s resources were mobilized in March 2021 as part of his “Operation Lone Star” to fortify the border.

    Several Texas counties have been trying to get Abbott, who just won re-election as governor, to declare an invasion for months.

    Thousands of illegal immigrants have been transported by Abbott’s buses to Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C., which have been designated as “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants.

    Tuesday, Abbott posted on Twitter, “I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.”

    “I’m using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe,” he continued.
