Republican Governors In 24 States Pledge Support For Texas

Is it now time for GOP majority in House of Representatives to impeach President Biden for failure to apply and enforce our nation’s immigration laws?

Last week, the Republican Governors of these 24 states issued this joint statement in support of Texas:

President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. 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.  

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 last paragraph of Article I, Section 10 of our Constitution states:

“No State shall, without the consent of Congress, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”

Are Texas and the rest of America now being invaded?  Democrats are ridiculous to claim that the January 6, 2021 riot by several hundred unarmed people at the Capitol was an “insurrection” as defined by our Constitution.

However,  any definition of “invade” or “invasion” describes what millions of foreigners are doing to America right now.  This is especially true for those foreigners who have been taught since childhood to falsely blame the poverty, violence and misery in their own country on whites, Christians, Jews, or Americans.

This invasion began in 2010 when Democrat Barack Obama was President. It slowed briefly during the COVID pandemic of 2020. It increased rapidly since Democrat Joe Biden was President.

Some 1.1 million foreigners came to America each year during Obama’s first term. Some 1.2 million foreigners came each year during his second term.

More than 2 million foreigners came to America in 2021 during Biden’s first year as President. That increased to nearly 3 million in 2022, and another 3 million last year, for a total of 8 million. Most came illegally. Biden granted “immigration parole” to one million of those illegals.  That gives them permission to legally work and travel and live anywhere in America without any supervision.

Roughly 49.5 million of the 335 million people who live in America were born in other countries. They make up roughly 15% of the total adult population .  They make up roughly 21% of Americans under the age of 50.

In 1952, Congress passed laws giving the President power to grant “immigration parole” to foreigners who enter illegally to “further a humanitarian cause or public benefit” for a “limited period of time”. Until now, Presidents only issued “immigration parole” to refugees in rare hardship situations. They also kept close watch on their whereabout. Refugees admitted on “immigration parole” were required to apply for legal entry or leave the United States within one or two years.

During the past three years, Biden granted “immigration parole” to more than a million foreigners who did not prove any hardship situations. The government has no idea of their whereabouts, and they have no obligation to obtain legal status or leave the country within one or two years.

Article II Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution states, “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America”.  That means the President has the duty to apply and enforce laws that are enacted by Congress pursuant to Article I, and interpreted by courts established by Article III. It is the duty of the President to use that executive power to apply and enforce our immigration laws to the best of his ability.  Article I Section 2 of our Constitution also makes the President “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States”.

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states: “The President, Vice-President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”.

Article I, Section 2of the Constitution states “The House of Representatives… shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.  Article I, Section 3 states that “The Senate shall have the sole power to try all Impeachments” and that “no Person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the Members present”.

President Biden has publicly stated that he has the ability to seal the border immediately as demanded by a majority of both Houses of Congress. However, President Biden also said publicly he will only do that if Congress approves new laws to give him money for various projects he wants.

Is President Biden’s willful refusal to enforce our immigration laws unless Congress agrees to spend billions of dollars for what he wants evidence of “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”?
