Democrat Joe Biden has betrayed local, state, and national law enforcement and the American people by pushing policies that leave the Southern Border “extremely dangerous’ even according to the United Nations.
Daily we hear from political experts and high-level security experts on the topic of the Southern Border, saying that Biden’s enticements cause the problems we see as a country to foreigners for free goodies, which is causing the mass migration into the United States.
And it is well known by now that Biden, through his administration, has defanged all law enforcement at the same time, preventing them from protecting the country.
So Biden is creating the crisis we see. He is bribing people to come from around the world, he is using and funding leftist nonprofits to help train people how to get into the country and grab up our resources, and he is putting law enforcement into a cage- so they can not do their jobs and protect us from an invasion.
There was one small bit of legislation left to help keep things under control “Remain In Mexico’ – which was put in place to slow down migrants- and which has now been removed by the US Supreme Court- giving Biden even more power to hand out to foreigners.
Last week the US posters on social media reacted like this about the fake asylum seekers who have been enticed and trained on how to get into the US- bypassing our system:
Remian in Mexico. Was working great under Trump. Biden destroyed the border like everything else. Never mind the illegal migrants, how about 100K fentanyl deaths? Biden has empowered drug cartels.

And things may be about to change – according to a press release that reports:
Our constitutional solution to the border crisis is live!
For the first time in U.S. history an INVASION has been declared (outside of Congress) by several counties in Texas.

“Judges from multiple Texas counties are planning to announce they’re issuing declarations of an invasion beginning on Tuesday in response to unprecedented challenges they’re experiencing as a result of escalated illegal immigration under the Biden administration.”
“County officials will make the announcement at a 3 p.m. news conference held at the Kinney County Civic Center in Brackettville, Texas. The event is not open to the public,” the Center Square reported on Tuesday.
Matt Benacci, a public information officer with the sheriff’s office who helped organize the event, told The Center Square, “It needs to be stressed that this is not a political rally. This is a gathering of concerned Texas County Judges and others, doing their very best to take concrete steps for the safety of their constituents, and the State of Texas as a whole.”
From the Center Square article:
Leading the judges is Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan, who was the first judge to issue a disaster declaration last year over the negative impacts of illegal immigration on his county, prompting other judges to also issue similar declarations. Gov. Greg Abbott later issued a disaster declaration for multiple counties as well.
Their announcement Tuesday comes after Abbott has taken measures to thwart criminal activity at the border through Operation Lone Star. Since OLS launched last March, state and local law enforcement efforts, working with U.S. Border Patrol, have helped apprehend more than 270,400 illegal immigrants and made more than 16,700 criminal arrests, with more than 14,000 felony charges reported, the governor’s office says. More than 5,600 weapons and $42.8 million in currency have also been seized, and more than 22,700 people attempting to enter Texas illegally have been turned back to Mexico, his office says.
“Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border,” Abbott said last week of OLS accomplishments. “Every individual who is apprehended or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Biden’s open border policies.”
But counties are calling on him to do more: to declare an invasion and “act under the constitutional authority granted unto him under Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution and immediately prevent and/or remove all persons invading the sovereignty of Texas and that of the United States.”
“We are taking unprecedented steps with the hope of encouraging Gov. Greg Abbott to acknowledge the existence of an invasion on our border with Mexico and take necessary actions to preserve and protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Texas,” Shahan and Smith said in a news release.
Smith told The Center Square, “Gov. Abbott recently acknowledged the fact that unprecedented times require unprecedented action from both state and local governments in order to protect our citizens. As such, several border counties have taken unprecedented action and declared an invasion on our border with Mexico. This coalition of counties support Gov. Abbott’s efforts and requests he stand alongside us and declare an invasion and swiftly act to protect Texas.”
“This spirit of independence, along with our sense of duty to our fellow man, is what drives counties such as ours to take bold steps at times like this,” he added. “We are compelled to act within the constitutional limits set by our forefathers in order to preserve the way of life they envisioned and we enjoy.
“We act today, in the face of government complicity, in order to try to ensure that our children and grandchildren are free citizens in the decades to come,” he said.
“While it’s unfortunate the Biden Administration has aided and abetted the destruction at the border and put Americans last on the world stage, we’re proud to stand with the history-making county judges, sheriffs and attorneys who didn’t rely on the federal government, or even the governor, to protect their families, ranches and communities,” the press release read.
