The executive leadership of the Republican Party of Texas has formally declared an invasion at the Texas southern border. It’s also calling on Gov. Greg Abbott to do what no governor of Texas has ever done before: declare an invasion and protect Texas and Americans from what it says are transnational criminal organizations creating an imminent threat to their lives.
The Texas GOP’s State Republican Executive Committee formally declared an invasion in a resolution it passed during its latest quarterly meeting held Sept. 24.
The resolution states that during World War II, allied forces totaling about 156,000 landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, on D-Day, June 6, 1944. By comparison, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the number of foreign nationals who’ve illegally entered the U.S. in Texas is equivalent to the number of allied D-Day forces entering every month for the past 18 months.
With the Biden administration ending the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico Policy,” Texas could see an increase of an additional 18,000 people illegally entering daily, or the equivalent to the number of allied D-Day forces landing in Texas every 10 days.
“The health, safety, and welfare of Texans are under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling coming across the U.S. border from Mexico,” the resolution states, “spearheaded by violent international drug cartels that have operational control over our unsecured U.S.-Mexico border.”
It also states that the Biden administration ordering U.S. Border Patrol agents to unlawfully “process into the United States an unlimited number of illegal non-citizens” violates the “Guarantee Clause, Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, as it relates to the Federal Government protecting any state against invasion.”
It points to Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, which grants authority to the states to protect themselves from an invasion when the federal government fails to do so. Under the authority of the U.S. Constitution, the Texas GOP SREC is calling on Abbott to declare that Texas is being invaded and “organize the appropriate assets of Texas to repel this growing lawless invasion.” This includes transporting “by any means available, an increasing number of undocumented illegal non-citizens across the same border they illegally crossed.”
The resolution also points to Abbott last month designating transnational cartels as terrorist organizations and calling on President Joe Biden to do the same.
It also points to multiple counties that “have so boldly declared an invasion because the health, safety, and welfare of their residents are under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling coming across the U.S. border from Mexico.”
So far, judges and commissioners representing 33 counties have declared an invasion. While they and the Texas GOP have all expressed support for Abbott’s border security efforts through Operation Lone Star and other actions he’s taken, they are calling on him to do even more to protect Texans and Americans.
In McMullen County, the fourth-least populated county in Texas, for example, its judge declared an invasion in the county and in Texas.
In one month alone, “McMullen County law enforcement documented over 4,000 illegal aliens who avoided apprehension by Border Patrol and whose whereabouts are currently unkown,” its county judge, James Teal, said in a disaster declaration he issued in July.
McMullen County, located roughly 104 miles north of Laredo, has a population of 600. In one month alone, foreign nationals evading law enforcement outnumber citizens 7 to 1.
“The ongoing crisis on the Texas border is not acceptable and has resulted in a security threat and humanitarian disaster with overwhelming consequences to the residents of McMullen County and Texans, alike,” Teal said.
Other county judges have also declared an invasion in their county as well as at the southern border.
The Texas GOP SREC maintains that only Abbott can “extinguish the worldwide incentive for millions of undocumented non-citizens to continue to gain illegal access to the United States via Texas” because of the lawlessness of the Biden administration.

Abbot is spineless.
I don’t think that James.
yep he won’t even stand durring the national anthem…..shameful
We are the Romans, the third-worlders are the Goths and the Visigoths.
And we all know who came out on top there.
History DOES repeat.
As he should. It’s his state getting hardest hit
Biden needs to be formally charged with TREASON.
Who’s got the spine to do what needs to be done to save our country?
From energy production to the Southern Border invasion, his actions and inaction are destroying the safety and well-being of our entire nation.
How does it take almost TWO YEARS to “declare an invasion” (as it pertains to illegals pouring over the border??). It’s almost laughable if it wasn’t so pathetic. Jamie Allard has bigger balls than the republican leadership in this country. D.C., New York and Martha’s Vineyard immediately enlisted the National Guard to assist in managing a few hundred illegals let alone the tens of thousands at the southern border? Why haven’t the National Guard been deployed to AZ and TX? Nothing makes a bit of sense.
They’re already there. It’s the governor’s job. He holds all the cards.
“How does it take almost TWO YEARS to “declare an invasion””
Because the Federal Government holds primary responsibility for securing the border. The State Governors tried to work with the Feds for two years, and were outright ignored.
Going straight to “invasion” is not appropriate, and if the process was not worked, it would have made TX and AZ the problem, not the feds.
Venezuela is issuing passports to Iranians
Conservative Republicans have held up immigration reforms for many years. Our temporary worker visa system is broke, we have millions of farm jobs and care worker jobs that could be done by these people
Dean Wormer to Flounder.
“Immigration reforms” that were held up were simply amnesty in disguise. The ‘reforms’ would have turned thousands, if not tens of thousands of criminals into lawful US residents.
About a year to late but it’s a start. Hopefully they have been tracking the 7-10 million that have already crossed and been distributed around the nation using our tax money to traffic minors for Biden’s pedophile cabal. Just wait for the riots in the Democrat run cities using the illegal MS-13 gang members and foreign national terrorists (dressed up to look like MAGA) to kill and hurt as many American Citizens as possible to stop the election that would remove the criminals from DC. Hang on to your hats folks, the days leading up to the election are gonna get a bit bumpy!
But they’re now invading NYC via Greyhound bus.
Bring some of them to Bethel. They’ll soon want to return to Mexico, Guatemala, and Panama at their own expense.
The MSM and Democrats have been using 11 million “migrants” since the late 1980’s. This is total BS it is closer to 35 – 40 million ILLEGAL ALIENS , when Sippy cup Biden took office, there have been close to 4 million ILLEGALS have entered America
Like to see Texas call up the state gaurd and remove the border patrol service from the Texas Border. Give them a chance to join the gaurd if they will then call for volunteers from the other states to take a temporary gaurd assignment and STOP all border crossings!! If legit people want to cross the border charge them a fee to go to the state to help pay for costs. Then deny the federal govt the option to federalize the gaurd. Use the Texas Rangers to hunt down and extradite across the border all undocumented aliens in Texas at gun point.
