Texas Governor Greg Abbott has a message for Joe Biden and the US Supreme Court: We’re declaring an invasion. And that declaration supersedes federal statutes and federal law enforcement agents who wish to defy or ignore federal law.
Hope you’ve got your popcorn ready, because this show is just getting good.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott just drew a hard line in the sand, putting the Biden administration on notice that he’s declared the migrant crisis an “invasion” and invoked Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself.
According to Abbott, “That authority is the supreme law of the land and supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary. The Texas National Guard, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other Texas personnel are acting on that authority, as well as state law, to secure the Texas border.”
Governor Abbott is correct. https://t.co/tyfEhjGWOc

The situation in Texas has come to a boiling point at Eagle Pass, where the Texas National Guard have taken control of a local park which illegal immigrants use as a landing zone after crossing the Rio Grande. The state has placed razor wire along miles of the river to block entry to the US – which the Supreme Court just allowed the Biden administration to remove while a legal battle plays out in a lower court.
Biden thought he had Texas all blocked in with that SCOTUS ruling. (By the way, did you see the headline at the Babylon Bee? Amy Coney Barrett Says Ruling For Open Border Has Nothing To Do With Landscaping Work She Needs Done This Summer)
We hope that the Texas Department of Public Safety has upped the protective detail around Gov. Abbott as well as his Lt. Governor. Just in case the Biden regime does something really stupid at this point.
And while I have no doubt that the vast majority of Border Patrol officers are probably gleeful that someone’s stepped in to put an end to their roles as chauffeurs for illegals, there are probably some who think following the leftist orders from on high are righteous reason enough to resist Texas state law with violence as an opportunity arises.
Go Greg Abbott.
