A calamitous border remains as porous and dangerous as ever under the leadership of Joe Biden, leading a county in Texas to declare the “existence of an invasion” at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The term “invasion” falls within the domain of Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, as well as Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution.
Kinney County, Texas has sounded the alarm on a striking uptick in illegal migrant crossings, and the county recently acquired the support of five others, including Goliad, Burnet, Medina, Terrell, and Uvalde.
Officials from all five counties met alongside Kinney County officials in order to detail their concerns regarding the growing number of migrants storming across the border, which the White House appears disinclined to address.
Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan issued a press release detailing the rising danger along the border, especially in terms of human smuggling and other nefarious activities, several of which directly interfere with the daily lives of citizens.
“This past weekend included the unfortunate deaths of 3 illegal aliens who were involved with human smuggling in Kinney County,” the press release reads, “Kinney County … has been forced to militarize our school campus with vehicle barriers to prevent high speed chases from entering campus and injuring children.”
Shahan argued that the situation was completely “unacceptable,” adding that the county “will no longer allow the sovereignty of Texas to be invaded by those unwilling to obey our laws.”
The declaration from Kinney County also urges Governor Greg Abbott to openly “acknowledge the existence of an invasion on [the] border with Mexico.”
“We are taking these steps in hopes of encouraging our Governor to acknowledge the existence of an invasion on our border with Mexico,” Shahan continued, “[as well as] take the necessary actions to preserve and protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Texas.”
