Governor Greg Abbott of Texas has declared a state of emergency at the border due to the large invasion of illegal aliens, Islamic terrorists, and the Mexican drug cartels. He cites the Constitution where it accuses the Biden regime of violating the U.S. Constitution by failing to protect the States against invasion, as promised in Article IV, § 4.
BillingsReport (h/t The Gateway Pundit) On Wednesday, the Biden regime cut the razor wires installed, “opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants.”
Abbott said: “Texas will continue to install more razor wire and fortify the border against illegal crossings. We will not back down.”
Texas installed razor wire in Eagle Pass to stop illegal crossings.
Today the Biden Admin CUT that wire, opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants.
I immediately deployed more Texas National Guard to repel illegal crossings & install more razor wire. pic.twitter.com/eMtLS8Z6WI

The Governor’s letter states:
Abbott’s letter is his manifesto of the course he plans to take as authorized by Article I, § 10, Clause 3 which reads:
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
TX: Happening now: A group of migrants from Venezuela that can’t get though the razor wire on the U.S. side tells another group attempting to cross to go back and cross in another area because they’re trapped where they are standing…
The crossings have been happening nonstop… pic.twitter.com/BKsFY6Ywo5

The Governor’s letter concludes with a scathing critique of the Biden regime’s inaction, stating, “Your open-border policies, which have catalyzed an unprecedented crisis of illegal immigration, are the sole cause of Texas having to invoke our constitutional authority to defend ourselves.”
These illegal immigrants are invading our country and benefiting from our taxpayers’ money
Todd Bensman, the Center’s Texas-based Senior National Security Fellow, has reported that the Biden regime is allocating a staggering $2,200 “per month” to illegal immigrant families (1 parent & 1 child) through phony asylum for the cost of living expenses. This comes at a time when the average American on Social Security receives just $1,400 per month and Maui survivors with only $700.
Bensman said that it appears these illegal immigrants may not be subjected to asylum interviews anymore. They are being released to the United States.
According to a video interview with an anonymous Border Patrol Agent, illegal immigrants are “double dipping” the system. One parent and one child receive $2,200 per month, and then a separate parent and child—often from the same family—receive another $2,200 per month. This amounts to a whopping $4,400 per month for some immigrant families, a figure that exceeds what many working Americans earn.
