25 Governors Issue Joint Statement In Solidarity With Texas In Their Fight To Secure The Border
In a display of solidarity, 25 Republican governors have issued a joint statement in support of Texas in its ongoing fight with the federal government to secure the border.
It is difficult to get 25 politicians to concur on much in today’s charged political environment, but the Biden administration’s lawless behavior has them banding together with a clear message: The time for inaction is over.
“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border,” the statement reads.
The governors argue that rather than upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the White House has refused to “protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.”
“We stand in solidarity with our fellow Governor, Greg Abbott, and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy, including razor wire fences, to secure the border,” they add.
Governors Joint Statement In Defense Of Texas Concurs – Biden Is ‘Lawless’
The joint statement by the governors in support of Texas goes on to echo Governor Greg Abbott’s own declaration of a “right of self-defense.”
Abbott asserts that declaring an invasion at the border in the way that he has allows Texas to invoke “constitutional authority to defend and protect itself.”
“The authors of the U.S. Constitution made clear that in times like this, states have a right of self-defense, under Article 4, Section 4 and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution,” the governors assert.
“Because the Biden Administration has abdicated its constitutional compact duties to the states, Texas has every legal justification to protect the sovereignty of our states and our nation,” they continue.
The only two Republican governors whose names are not on the joint statement in support of Texas are Abbott (since it supports his actions) and Vermont Governor Phil Scott.
The Cavalry Is Coming
President Biden has not simply decided to avoid doing anything to control the situation at the border: he has actively pursued efforts to keep it open.
When Arizona tried to create a makeshift border wall out of shipping containers, he sued to have them removed. Likewise, when Texas began setting up razor wire, he had border agents go in and cut openings, then enlisted the Supreme Court to allow him permission to keep doing so.
Biden is actively aiding the invasion.
This joint letter in support for Texas from nearly every Republican governor in the country isn’t the only sign that the cavalry is getting ready to help defend the Lone Star State.
Former President Donald Trump took to social media to post a call for all willing state governors to deploy their National Guards to the state of Texas to prevent the entry of “illegals” and ship them back across the border.
Even Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democrat who launched an Independent bid for the presidency, has sided with Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
“Biden’s failure to secure the border leaves states no choice but to take matters into their own hands,” Kennedy wrote on social media later adding, “A country without borders is not a country at all.”
The need for defined borders was something Democrats used to agree on. That is, until they realized they could simply import new voters to help gain or maintain power.
Abbott and the Texas National Guard said that they will continue to “hold the line” against the federal government despite the recent Supreme Court ruling.
Now they have Trump, a Kennedy, and 25 governors standing right beside them.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
