Some 2 Million illegal immigrants flooded the southern border according to Customs and Border Patrol. Amongst them are members of crime syndicates, human traffickers and terrorists.
Americans are distracted as Biden very effectively once more Wagged the Dog, in instigating a new war behind the scenes to protect the Ukrainian border. Meanwhile, U.S. officials and representatives focus to fight the border crisis at home.
Illegal immigrants are being sent on secret charter flights in the middle of the night.
In a statement to Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, Gooden said:
“Many of these migrants are being aided, in fact, by [U.S.] nonprofits who are using our tax dollars to do the aiding and helping them across, helping them get on airplanes without documentation, helping them to evade court hearing and helping them to burrow into society and evade any questions from law enforcement.” Lawenforcement Today reports, adding:
“It is just stunning to me that we are giving money to anybody that’s not a U.S. citizen – much less someone who’s come into this country the wrong way.”
Representatives introduce a Bill To direct the Director of the Office of Management and Budget to require the disclosure of violations of Federal law with respect to human trafficking or alien smuggling, and for other purposes. Rep. Gooden Lance H.R.6773
DOD Release Regarding Cancellation of Border Barrier Project Cancellation
APRIL 30, 2021
Today, the Department of Defense released the following statement on the cancellation of all border barrier construction projects paid for with funds originally intended for military missions and projects.
“Consistent with the President’s proclamation, the Department of Defense is proceeding with canceling all border barrier construction projects paid for with funds originally intended for other military missions and functions such as schools for military children, overseas military construction projects in partner nations, and the National Guard and Reserve equipment account,” said Jamal Brown, Deputy Pentagon Spokesman. “DOD has begun taking all necessary actions to cancel border barrier projects and to coordinate with interagency partners. Today’s action reflects this Administration’s continued commitment to defending our nation and supporting our service members and their families.”
With this cancellation, unobligated military construction funds that had been diverted from military construction projects will be used for previously deferred military construction projects, allowing some of these critical efforts to move forward as soon as possible. The Department is reviewing the deferred project list to determine funding prioritization.
The Department will continue to work with its interagency partners regarding any additional steps that should be taken at construction sites affected by project cancellation.
Texas, Florida Governors fight back, invoking the 10th Amendment
State and Individual Sovereignty
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.— Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution
The word sovereignty is defined as “supreme power or authority.” It is also referred to as a “self-governing state.”
The US Constitution, in the Tenth Amendment, clearly establishes state sovereignty. As well, our Declaration of Independence establishes individual sovereignty as our unalienable rights emanate, and are endowed by, Creator God: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These rights are not given to us by man — government — and, therefore, cannot be adjudicated or restrained by such an entity. These were the bases upon which we dissolved our bonds with Great Britain because, as Thomas Jefferson brilliantly articulated, they have violated our rights.
In reaction, our Founding Fathers established these United States of America. Pay attention to the use of the word “these.” The signers of the Declaration of Independence said “these” Colonies would be “free and independent States.” That concept, ideal, was solidified in the Tenth Amendment.
Now, the ideals of State and individual sovereignty are under assault by the progressive socialist left, the real secessionists, calling themselves the Democrat Party. It is not debatable that the Democrat Party is seeking to undermine the sovereignty and supreme authority of States in several instances.
First, the Constitution does not grant the enumerated power to the federal government to control the execution of elections, nor proscribe its processes and procedures. The implementation and execution of elections reside as a power of the States.
However, after successfully enacting unconstitutional actions to undermine respective State election laws, the Democrats are looking to codify such abhorrent behavior into law. States must assert themselves in nullifying any attempt by the federal government to usurp this extremely important power, or we shall suffer the consequences of rule, not constitutional governance.
The current issue Texans are facing, with the wanton disregard of our sovereign border, is highly disconcerting. But, it is not without the ability of the State of Texas to take action. It is apparent that Joe Biden has abdicated his constitutional duty to defend our nation from what the framers of the Constitution termed “invasion.” Biden has, by Executive Order, sought to implement an open border agenda that undermines the safety, security, and sovereignty of the Lone Star State, and America.
However, Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the Constitution clearly grants a State the right and power to take action, without delay, when immediate danger is being posed, an invasion.
Texas does not need to idly stand by and watch the Biden administration allow what is now hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants into our State.
The fact that this administration has allowed 3,000 illegal immigrant males to be situated in the Dallas convention center and another 1,000 out in Midland is unconscionable. Texas should not be allowing any illegal immigrants to leave the border zone. They should be processed, biometric data collected and entered into a database, and then repatriated across the border.
The fact that the Biden administration is preventing the sovereign Governor of the State of Texas from visiting these sites is unacceptable. I gotta tell you, no one from the Biden administration would prevent me from executing my duties as Governor.
This past week, we saw the US House of Representatives pass an illegal immigration bill granting amnesty. There is a reason why the left wants to flood our state, and nation, with illegal immigrants. It is called permanent victim class, votes.
When you consider that HR 1 eliminates voter ID, one realizes the left does not believe that representation should be based upon citizenship, but rather population. With the impending redistricting coming, you can ascertain the true intention of the delusional totalitarians of the progressive socialist left.
But, it is not just that the left wants to undermine the power of our states, they also want to cancel the rights, freedoms, and liberties of sovereign individuals in our Republic.
Leftist legislation that has passed the House of Representatives — such as HR 5 and HR 8 — are detrimental and damaging to individual rights in elevating the left’s ideological agenda. Ideals such as Red Flag Laws and the non-transparent FISA court are contradictory to our Fourth Amendment rights, eliminating due process.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a Monday message titled “Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat.” Fortune does favor the bold, and our original framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution evidenced such boldness. If we are to do as Benjamin Franklin admonished, “A Republic if you can keep it,” it requires us to remember that the two most important aspects of a Republic are the rule of law: our Constitution, and individual rights. We must never forget that our Constitution was not ratified until it contained a Bill of Rights, our first ten amendments.
That final, tenth amendment, established the fundamental power, sovereignty, in our Republic: the States, and the People.
It is time we exercised that power, and reminded the Biden administration of such, from a constitutional perspective.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Governor Abbott Blasts President Biden Over Conditions At Unaccompanied Minor Facilities
Governor Greg Abbott today blasted the Biden Administration for the conditions of the federally run unaccompanied minor facilities in Texas caused by the sudden surge of minors coming across the border. The water at the federally run unaccompanied minor facility in Midland was not proven safe prior to placing children in the facility. In addition, there has been a COVID-19 outbreak in the Carrizo Springs facility.
“The Biden Administration has been an abject failure when it comes to ensuring the safety of unaccompanied minors who cross our border. The conditions unaccompanied minors face in these federally run facilities is unacceptable and inhumane. From a lack of safe drinking water in one location to a COVID-19 outbreak in another, the Biden Administration has no excuse for subjecting these children to these kinds of conditions. President Biden’s refusal to address the border crisis is not only enabling criminal actors like human traffickers and smugglers, but it is exposing innocent unaccompanied children to illness and potentially unsafe living conditions. The administration must act now to keep these children safe, secure our border, and end this humanitarian crisis.”
The Governor has deployed Texas Department of State Health Services resources and personnel to Carrizo Springs to investigate, identify, and combat the outbreak of COVID-19 in the federally run facility. The Texas Commission of Environmental Quality has notified the Midland facility of their need to address the serious water issues.
The Governor also requested that the Biden Administration allow DPS to access the unaccompanied minor holding facility in Dallas, as well as other federally-run facilities in Texas, to conduct interviews with unaccompanied minors. The Governor made the announcement at a press conference in Dallas alongside DPS Director Colonel Steve McCraw, the Office of the Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team Director Andrea Sparks, and Traffick911 Advocate Cristy Lopez.
“President Biden’s reckless open border policies have created a humanitarian crisis that is enriching the cartels, smugglers, and human traffickers who often prey on and abuse unaccompanied minors,” said Governor Abbott. “Americans deserve to know what the Biden Administration is doing to investigate the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border and to protect those who are victims of human trafficking. That is why we are expanding Operation Lone Star to include anti-human trafficking efforts, such as interviewing unaccompanied minors to learn if they are victims of human trafficking. This will help us gain information to keep these children safe, root out human trafficking or other criminal activity, and prevent more children from being trafficked and abused. Whether it’s securing the border or fighting human trafficking, the state of Texas will always step up to fill the gaps left by Washington.”
Operation Lone Star was launched in early March to help secure the border and combat the smuggling of people and drugs in Texas. There are currently 1,000 DPS troopers, agents, and rangers who are engaged in the mission. The new anti-human trafficking efforts will be supported by the Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team and other organizations and agencies who work to combat human trafficking in Texas.
