As Biden Admin Undermines Texas Border Security, States Should Fight Back

Written by Daniel Horowitz

When in global history has a sovereign nation’s own government aided an invasion against its own people? At this point, we could build a 2,000-mile border wall up to the heavens, but if we don’t neutralize the malfeasant leadership at the DHS, they will simply bring the invaders through the front door.

Much like gas prices, which spiked to biblical levels and then settled at a very high and unacceptable baseline, the border numbers are still extremely high, but slightly off their peak. While much of that is a bait-and-switch, as our government moved the invaders to the ports of entry and admits them at even higher rates than before, some of the drop is due to Texas state security measures. Between the “hold the line” strategy of pushing back illegal aliens, constructing concertina wire boundaries on the shores of the Rio Grande River, and constructing barriers in the actual river, Texas has begun deterring and locking out new waves of migration.

In comes the DHS, in one of the greatest acts of betrayal, sabotage, and subversion of the people of the U.S., guiding illegal aliens through the Texas blockade. As border reporter Todd Bensman observed through firsthand interviews with those crossing, the DHS was coordinating with Mexican officials to let carefully targeted groups of 100-150 illegal aliens cross the river. “DPS don’t allow us to cross here, so they are looking for Border Patrol,” said one of the aliens through an interpreter to Bensman.

Fox News’ Bill Melugin has posted video of Border Patrol actively cutting through the Texas C-wire barrier to let the illegal aliens in!

In other words, the illegal aliens are now looking for those in the green uniforms (CBP) and trying to avoid those in the tan uniforms (Texas DPS). It’s gotten so bad that Bensman reports the DHS even leased a private pecan farm at the border in late May and bulldozed a perfect ramp up the bank of the river so that illegal aliens could seamlessly cross. Texas authorities reclaimed the territory and constructed barriers.

Thus, we are literally at a point in history when we would be better off without a Border Patrol. Border Patrol has now been marshalled into the smuggling operation and has become an indispensable component of the cartel operations to defeat the Texas border security. In addition, the Biden administration filed a lawsuit last week to force Texas to take down a floating marine barrier in the Rio Grande River. Whereas Art. IV Sec. 4 of the U.S. Constitution requires the federal government to protect the states from invasion, our government is protecting the invaders from the states.

In a sane world, DHS officials would be prosecuted for human trafficking. If a random Manhattan DA can prosecute Donald Trump on bogus charges, then Texas officials should be able to prosecute top CBP and DHS officials for human smuggling.

Part of why Biden’s DHS wants to ensure illegal aliens aren’t confronted by Texas DPS is because Texas authorities will prosecute single adults. If the DHS gets to them first, however, they are “safe” and can be released. Now the DHS is having everyone around the world “apply” on the CBP One app to be admitted at a port of entry despite having no valid visa. All available data shows that 99 percent of applications are being approved. Officials have even released people on the FBI’s terror watch list into the interior. Also, nearly 2,500 illegal alien children with latent tuberculosis were released into 44 states. So we could be locked down without testing positive for a communicable disease, but illegal aliens can test positive and be released into our country.

What happens to these people after they are released into the interior? A new report shows that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement failed to issue court summonses to 80 percent of these people under the administration’s parole program. Officials are ensuring the states cannot deal with the problem at the border before aliens are snuck into the country, necessitating that states deal with the fallout in their own communities.

How bad is the problem? There are now 4.8 million illegal aliens targeted by ICE for deportation who have already been ordered removed by a judge (and exhausted their final appeal) – yet they remain in the country indefinitely. Most people targeted for removal to begin with are criminal aliens, and many find ways to finagle status through endless litigation. That means these 4.8 million include many bad characters.

In addition to Texas doubling down on border security, red states need to form a state-based removal pact where they pool together resources and begin removing criminal aliens. The problem has gotten so bad that even a good federal administration, with merely 5,000 deportation officers, will be limited in how many of the worst offenders can be removed. The time has come for states to pick up the slack and protect their own communities.

The U.S. Constitution is not a one-way suicide pact for the states.
