(BrightPress.org) – Additional Republican-controlled states are backing Texas in its fight against the federal government after a SCOTUS ruling suggested Biden’s Border Patrol had temporary authority to remove razor wire fencing from the border to facilitate the entrance of illegals.
The case continues to play out before the SCOTUS and the decision wasn’t a final one; nevertheless, Gov. Greg Abbott is refusing to admit Border Patrol to the area known as Shelby Park, near Eagle Pass, Texas, where tens of thousands have crossed in the last few years.
Abbott issued a public statement on January 24th in response to the ruling that stressed Texas has the right to self-defense as described in the Constitution. Abbott said that the federal government under Biden has “broken the compact” between state and federal systems.
Abbott cites Article 4, Section 4 from the Constitution which describes the responsibility of the federal government to protect its citizenry from “invasion.” He then indicated that Biden’s failure to perform his constitutional duty triggered Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 which grants states the right to defend themselves from invasion. The text of the document is indisputable and clear, as legalese goes.
Not only is Abbott refusing to admit Border Patrol and allow them to clear razor wire, he’s adding more razor wire to the border.
Democrats, upset with Texas’ willingness to defend itself, have suggested Biden nationalize the Texas National Guard and force Texans to admit the invasion of illegals.
Just an hour following Texas’ public refusal to abide by the ruling, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) said that his state “stands with Texas.” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said that Texas would have never joined the union if it wasn’t constitutionally allowed to defend itself. He added that Biden is in violation of the law, while Texas is defending it, and said Florida will continue to send assistance, manpower, and resources to Texas to help defend the border.
Georgia, South Dakota, Alabama, Montana, Utah, and other states like Tennessee, Idaho, and Nebraska have all either promised resources and manpower or outright said they support Texas’ right to self-defense against the criminal invasion being facilitated by the Biden administration.
