Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced today that he is fully equipped to handle any potential disagreement with federal authorities regarding the border.
“This is a fight for the future of America,” he said.
Abbott expressed to Tucker Carlson his anticipation that the conflict between the state and the Biden administration will be resolved through peaceful methods, yet they remain prepared in the event of an unforeseen circumstance.
“If the administration declares that it plans to federalize the National Guard of the State of Texas, your National Guard, what will be your response,” Carlson asked.
“I’ll be shocked,” the governor replied. “That would be a boneheaded move on his part, a total disaster. But for one, as you might imagine, we are prepared in the event that that unlikely event does occur to make sure that we will be able to continue exactly what we’ve been doing over the past month.”
Regardless of the administration’s actions, he stated that National Guard troops will persist in constructing border fencing.
“And that is building these barriers, whether it be the concertina wire or other anti-climb border barriers, whatever we’ve been building, the Biden administration is now trying to attack us because of it. “We will continue to do exactly what we’re doing to expand our denial of illegal entry into the state of Texas.”
The governor has stated that they possess a plan in response to speculations regarding the Biden administration’s potential attempt to federalize the Texas National Guard.
“We do have other armed state employees on the border as we speak,” he said. “As well as National Guard from other states and you can be assured there will be other more National Guard from other states.”
At least fifteen states, all under Republican governance, have declared their intention to back Texas Governor Greg Abbott in his battle against the federal government.
“The federal government’s failure to secure our nation’s southern border is jeopardizing the safety of all Americans. Tennessee has always stood with Texas, and we always will,” said Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee.
Governor Abbott has made an official declaration stating that the state of Texas, known as the Lone Star State, has experienced an invasion. He has accused the White House of violating Article IV, Section IV of the United States Constitution. The governor emphasized that states possess a constitutional entitlement to safeguard themselves against any form of invasion.
“The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting states, including immigration laws on the books right now,” Abbott said. “President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them.”
“James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and the other visionaries who wrote the U.S. Constitution foresaw that States should not be left to the mercy of a lawless president who does nothing to stop external threats.”
In light of this, certain Democrats are urging President Biden to centralize the Texas National Guard under federal control. Such a course of action could potentially result in unforeseen consequences.
“If Abbott is defying yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, [Biden] needs to establish sole federal control of the Texas National Guard now,” wrote Rep. Joaquin Castro, (D-TX).
The open border policies implemented by the Biden Administration have transformed every state into a border state. It is not only a matter of being invaded, but also of being occupied. House Speaker Mike Johnson has also expressed his endorsement for the Lone Star State.
“I stand with Governor Abbott. The House will do everything in its power to back him up,” he said. “The next step: holding Secretary Mayorkas accountable.”
According to a study conducted by Yale University in 2018, it was revealed that there could be as many as 22 million undocumented individuals residing in the United States. However, recent estimations suggest that this number may have significantly increased to over 30 million within a span of six years.
“Biden cannot hold our country hostage by opening the border for fentanyl, terrorists, and criminals to pour in, and then demand AMNESTY in order to secure it,” Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) wrote on X. “Biden took an oath to defend our borders that he is violating. He should be IMPEACHED! No amnesty surrender!”
The United States is currently at a critical juncture in its history, experiencing what could be referred to as the War of Federal Aggression. While a peaceful resolution is the desired outcome, it is imperative to halt the invasion.
President Biden should acknowledge that the citizens are resolute and determined. Rest assured, the border will be effectively secured, by any means necessary.
