Trump Rallies Troops to Texas, Declares State ‘Must be Given Full Support to Repel the Invasion’


by George C. Upper III

Support from Republicans around the country for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to continue to deploy concertina wire along the U.S. border with Mexico near Eagle Pass despite a Supreme Court ruling to the contrary.

On Thursday, both the Republican Governors Association and former President Donald Trump issued statements encouraging Abbott and the authorities working under his leadership to protect the state’s sovereignty.

“When I was President, we had the most secure Border in History,” read an email from the Trump campaign titled “Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States.”

“Joe Biden has surrendered our Border, and is aiding and abetting a massive Invasion of millions of Illegal Migrants into the United States,” the statement continued. “Instead of fighting to protect our Country from this onslaught, Biden is, unbelievably, fighting to tie the hands of Governor Abbott and the State of Texas, so that the Invasion continues unchecked. In the face of this National Security, Public Safety, and Public Health Catastrophe, Texas has rightly invoked the Invasion Clause of the Constitution, and must be given full support to repel the Invasion.”

Trump encouraged not only Abbott and the state government of Texas to defend the border, but also other state governors to deploy National Guard troops to assist those efforts.

“We encourage all willing States to deploy their guards to Texas to prevent the entry of Illegals, and to remove them back across the Border,” Trump said. “All Americans should support the commonsense measures by Texas authorities to protect the Safety, Security, and Sovereignty of Texas, and of the American people.”

The former president also promised that things would be different — very different — if he re-takes the White House in November.

“When I am President, on Day One, instead of fighting Texas, I will work hand in hand with Governor Abbott and other Border States to Stop the Invasion, Seal the Border, and Rapidly Begin the Largest Domestic Deportation Operation in History,” he said. “Those Biden has let in should not get comfortable because they will be going home.”

Also on Thursday, the RGA issued a statement signed by 25 of the 27 sitting Republican governors. (Abbott himself did not sign it, of course, and Vermont’s Phil Scott was the only holdout.)

“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border,” the statement said. “Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.”

It was unclear how many of the signatories might be willing to send additional National Guard or other personnel to Texas to aid in protecting the border, but the statement called for the use of “every tool and strategy,” which arguably left the door open for such assistance, at least.

“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. We do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.

“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. 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.”

The optics for biden could not be worse. biden violated his oath by not enforcing immigration laws and instead turned a blind eye to the lawlessness.

It’s crazy; the Democrats want to offer a “compromise deal” that allows for them to continue breaking and ignoring immigration law already in place, laws which WORK. We don’t even notice the absurdity of it all.

THERE ARE LAWS IN PLACE ALREADY. The border was ALREADY SECURED. While I understand that weak, incompetent Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden can never secure the agreements Trump had in place with Mexico, he could at least close off the open border, restart wall construction and cut off all the subsidies and entitlements that makes living in the wealthiest nation in the world when you are making less than minimum wage AND sending part of that wage home possible. BAN sanctuary cities. The border stupidity is maintained because that’s how Democrats want it.

The border was ALREADY SECURED.

No, it wasn’t. You keep typing that, and it’s no more true the hundredth time than it was the first.

Yes it was. You can deny it all you want, but a couple thousand a day compared to 20,000 a day illegal immigrant flow is most certainly secured and under control. More was being done to stop the rest, but the border was secured. Again, I provided you a link that contained a graph showing the progress made, and then utterly destroyed. You don’t HAVE to live with your stupidity; it can be conquered through information.

According to a new post put out by the Border Patrol Union joe Biden has lost operational control of the situation, at least in a practical sense. 

Rank-and file BP agents are not going to start arresting TX NG members for following their LAWFUL orders. That’s fake news.

TX NG and rank-and-file BP agents work together and respect each other’s jobs. Period. If TX NG members have LAWFUL orders, then they have to carry out…

joe had initially warned Texas that it had until mid-day Friday to relinquish control of Shelby Park, the nearby boat dock, and the International Bridge. That deadline has now come and gone.

The statement is a clear signal of support by US Border Patrol for the Texas National Guard, its mission, and those leading it, including Gov. Greg Abbott.

joe has no way to enforce his threats at this point. Border Patrol agents are not going to go along with it and short of using the Insurrection Act to mobilize the U.S. Army (and they likely wouldn’t act either), this represents a major roadblock to the president’s attempts to further destroy the Southern border. 

No hope for AZ or Cali, they already are Cartel owned.

AZ would have had a a chance had not the global/DC ylites conspired to steal the gubernatorial election from Kari Lake.

Hmm… seems those who are routinely called Nazis, fascists, thugs and racists by the Democrats are not showing a lot of loyalty to Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden. I wonder why?
