Texas must declare Biden migrant surge an ‘invasion,’ George P. Bush says; Border Patrol Union: Abbott Should "Absolutely" Use Constitutional "Invasion" Powers On Border

Texas must declare Biden migrant surge an ‘invasion,’ George P. Bush says:
Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush says it is time to “declare an invasion” of the Lone Star State as the migration crisis along the southern border continues to surge ahead of President Biden’s Friday virtual meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
“Texas has been left with no choice, we must assert our sovereignty and immediately declare an invasion of our state under the US Constitution,” Bush posted in a Thursday Twitter thread.
“Texas national guard and DPS troopers are already deployed to the border yet are handcuffed by our current federal policies.”
Bush – the grandson of 41st President George H.W. Bush, nephew of 43rd President George W. Bush, and the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – accused Biden of abandoning Texas.
“Joe Biden has abandoned the state of Texas, leaving our communities to suffer the crippling effects of a mass invasion perpetrated by known terrorists, drug cartels, and human smugglers,” the Attorney General candidate wrote before blasting his opponent. --->READ MORE HERE

Border Patrol Union: Abbott Should "Absolutely" Use Constitutional "Invasion" Powers On Border:
The national Border Patrol union, which represents about 18,000 agents, said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott should “absolutely” invoke his powers under the Constitution to call the border crisis an “invasion” and respond accordingly.
“We’re at a breaking point. We’ve got miles upon miles of border that just aren’t patrolled because we have to deal with, frankly, an invasion,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told The Epoch Times.

“When you’re dealing with over 200,000 illegal border crossings per month, I don’t know how you don’t call it anything but that.”
Border Patrol apprehensions along the southern border have remained above 150,000 per month since March 2021, with the exception of this past January. In March, numbers show more than 220,000 apprehensions were made.
During one night last week, Border Patrol agents apprehended 16 illegal aliens from Kyrgyzstan, seven from Kazakhstan, and a Russian within a large group near Eagle Pass, Texas, according to Customs and Border Protection. --->READ MORE HERE
