    Texas Governor Declares Biden ‘In Violation Of U.S. Constitution’ For Failing To Secure Border

    Published on

    Former President Donald Trump made erecting a wall a top priority for his administration after becoming aware of the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs through the southern U.S. border. The government stopped building the wall during the incumbent Biden Administration, but border state residents who suffer from the now-increased influx took over privately.

    Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, looked to the U.S. Constitution and took things into his own hands for his state. In July, he gave the go-ahead for state officials to send migrants who had been detained back to the border. This led to a disagreement with federal officials, who insist that immigration-related matters fall under their purview. In a novel step, Abbott gave state law enforcement more authority and sent troops from the Texas National Guard to accompany migrants back to the border without deporting them.

    According to Abbott’s executive order, the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety are to detain “immigrants who cross the border between ports of entry or commit other violations of federal law, and to return” them to ports of entry, all within the state of Texas. The situation would then likely be handled by federal officials at the port of entry. The Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety were instructed to seize anyone who enter Texas unlawfully between ports of entry and detain illegal foreign nationals for state offenses.

    At that time, Abbott also disclosed that $30 million more will be given to Operation Lone Star to assist local governments in combating crime connected to unauthorized border crossings.

    The Biden administration did not support the governor in his endeavors in his state and cast doubt on his legitimacy in matters of immigration. The response from Abbott.

    In a letter to President Joe Biden dated November 16, Governor Abbott announced that Texas was stepping up its border security efforts and that it was doing so in accordance with Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, which allows his state to “protect its own territory against invasion by the Mexican drug cartels.”

    Additionally, the governor claimed that Biden had violated Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution by opening “our border to this record-breaking level of illegal immigration” in the letter he sent last week, according to Just The News.

    “Your sustained dereliction of duty compels Texas to invoke the powers reserved in Article I, § 10, Clause 3, which represents ‘an acknowledgment of the States’ sovereign interest in protecting their borders,’”  according to Abbott, From Arizona v. US, a case decided by the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Abbott also said the nation’s founders knew a future president “might abandon his obligation to safeguard the States from an extraordinary inflow of people who have no legal right of entry.

    “They foresaw your failures. In the more than 240 years of our great nation, no Administration has done more than yours to place the States in ‘imminent Danger’ – a direct result of your policy decisions and refusal to deliver on the Article IV, § 4 guarantee,” he added. “In the absence of action by your Administration to secure the border, every act by Texas officials is taken pursuant to the authority that the Founders recognized in Article I, § 10, Clause 3.”

    Abbott vowed that Texas would “escalate our efforts to repel and turn back any immigrant who seeks to enter our State at a border crossing that Congress has designated as illegal; to return to the border those who do cross illegally; and to arrest criminals who violate Texas law.” CONTINUE READING…
