Biden’s Intentional Border Invasion

The “border crisis” is not a policy issue Biden needs to fix — it is a policy issue he created and has no intention of altering.

Joe Biden created the “border crisis” with his open border policies. He did it willfully and intentionally. It is dereliction of his presidential duty, an impeachable offense, and it is deliberate, methodical, and also core to the Left’s agenda.

That isn’t something you’ll hear from the mainstream media. Even Fox News seems to treat the border crisis as something that Biden just needs to get a handle on rather than something he has wantonly created. Beltway talkingheads and scribes tend to report border issues as if a game of checkers when the politicians responsible for the open southern border are playing chess.

By contrast, we in our humble shop beat this drum again and again and again and again and again and again and … okay, you get the idea.

Now, this isn’t to say that Team Biden would rather not have “border crisis” constantly splashing across the headlines. The same goes for monthly news about yet another record number of illegal border crossings. And now that Biden is outright refusing to prosecute those entering our country illegally, more will flood in.

And more will die. When 53 illegal migrants die in a trailer, including ten children, that blood is on Biden’s hands, and he’d certainly prefer you didn’t think so. After all, his poll numbers are bad enough. But fact is, the border is becoming more deadly than a war zone.

Nevertheless, a borderless society is the goal for the Left. We have no right to keep out migrants, Democrats tell us. They need the Nanny State to care for their needs, don’t you know. Root causes, and all that. And, oh, by the way, Democrats are the party of the Nanny State, so vote for them come election time.

Yet the reality is that it’s an invasion, and several Texas counties just labeled it as such.

“We’re being invaded. The facts are there,” said Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan in a press conference with officials from Kinney, Goliad, Terrell, and Uvalde (yes, that Uvalde) Counties. “This is real. We want America to know this is real. America doesn’t know what’s happening here.”

Representative Chip Roy likewise said, “[This is] an invasion of the state of Texas that is undermining our security, risking the health and well-being of Texans, allowing fentanyl to pour into our schools and communities, for Texans to die, allowing our ranches to get run over, empowering cartels who are well-armed along the border with their tentacles reaching into Texas.” He added, “You’re damn right that’s an invasion.”

Former Virginia Attorney General and Trump DHS official Ken Cuccinelli argued that the counties can use the “self-help provision of the Constitution to declare an invasion.” He says, “This gives the governor, if he decided similarly, the authority to repel that invasion.”

While Cuccinelli’s theory is certainly a sympathetic one, it’s unlikely to survive a court challenge. “As they say in Texas, this dog won’t hunt,” said constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley. “They’re relying on the guarantee clause of Article Four, Section Four, and that deals with an invasion, which is generally interpreted and long interpreted to mean an actual foreign invasion in the form of an army, an organized force.”

It might not be an “organized” force in the traditional sense, but Roy certainly makes a compelling case. He also gets the thesis of this story: Team Biden is “purposely blowing up our border,” he said, “purposely refusing to execute the laws of the United States.”

As for Texas Governor Greg Abbott, he’s doing what he can, including making sure people know where the blame lies. “It has never been worse,” he said of border crossings. “The numbers are higher than they’ve ever been, [and] the problems and challenges are mounting on the other side of the border. But worst of all, we are not seeing the president lift a finger to do anything about it.” (Again, because it’s intentional.) “The president has abandoned many of the states, all the border states of the United States of America. It’s reprehensible.”

Indeed it is, and even more so because it’s by design.

“Think about the number of young women and children now that have been sexually assaulted because of the open-border policies,” said Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “Think about the absolute expansion of human trafficking, the atrocities, because of this administration’s open-border policies.” Think about the 107,000 Americans who died last year as a result of drug overdoses, much of which is due to fentanyl trafficked across Biden’s open border.

Finally, this is going to seem redundant, but it’s critical to understand what’s happening in order to effectively go about stopping it: Joe Biden’s border crisis is intentional, deliberate, purposeful, and with malice aforethought. Biden opened our border because he (and his handlers) wanted to. It serves his America Last agenda to open our border. And every American is paying the price.
