Border Dispute: The Supreme Court has made its decision, now let them enforce it
Gov. Abbott defies unconstitutional court ruling
President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border is in clear defiance of federal law, which REQUIRES immigration officials to detain asylum applicants who are not “clearly admissible.” The horde of poverty stricken third-worlders pouring into our country are economic migrants, which is not grounds for asylum at all, much less “clearly admissible.” The law says they must be detained until they are removed.
Biden is detaining none of them, meaning his administration has broken federal law at least 6 million times so far.
Gov. Gregg Abbott of Texas has defended his state with “Operation Lone Star,” installing razor wire along the state’s 1,254-mile border with Mexico, and deploying thousands of Texas state troopers and National Guardsmen there.
In response, Biden ordered federal officials to cut down the razor wire, so that he may continue hauling millions of illegals into the country — again, in defiance of written law.
This week, the Supreme Court ruled that Biden’s breaking the law takes precedence over Gov. Abbott’s enforcing the law. (Special thanks to John Roberts and uber-Papist Amy Coney Barrett!)
Gov. Abbott is completely within his rights to spurn such a manifestly unconstitutional court ruling.
This, he did yesterday, issuing a statement explaining that the Biden administration’s refusal to detain illegals — as required by federal law — has triggered Article 1, Section 10, clause 3 of the United States Constitution, permitting Texas to go to war to stop an invasion.
“No State shall …engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.” - U.S. Const. Art. 1 § 10 cl 3:
I note that Biden ignores the Supreme Court when it acts constitutionally.
Texas is well within its rights to follow the law, despite orders from the president and Supreme Court that he violate it.
As President Andrew Jackson is supposed to have said, “[Justice] John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it.”
