Last week, two more counties in the state of Texas formally declared the ongoing immigration crisis on the southern border to be an “invasion,” and as such have called for greater security measurements to combat the crisis.
Just The News reports that the counties of Wharton and Burnet both passed resolutions, signed by their respective judges and county commissioners, calling for “additional measures to secure the border, stop the invasion at the border, and protect our communities.”
“Our southern Texas border is suffering an invasion,” the resolutions declare, recognizing the “sovereign and unilateral authority explicitly reserved to the states, respectively, under Article 1, Section 10 of the United States Constitution and Article IV, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution to defend themselves against invasion, which has been exacerbated by the federal government’s failure in meeting its constitutional obligation to ‘insure domestic tranquility,’ ‘provide for the common defense,’ ‘execute the laws,’ and ‘protect each state against invasion.’”
As it stands now, the 29 Texas counties that have formally declared an invasion are: Atascosa, Burnet, Chambers, Clay, Edwards, Ellis, Goliad, Hardin, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Jasper, Johnson, Kinney, Liberty, Live Oak, Madison, Montague, Orange, Parker, Presidio, Terrell, Throckmorton, Tyler, Van Zandt, Wharton, Wichita, Wilson, and Wise.
