Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Tells Biden He Left State Open to Migrant ‘invasion’; Texas to Use ‘Every Available Strategy’ to Repel Migrants Crossing Border, Says Governor; "Invasion Clause" Triggered In Texas As Migrants Overwhelm Border

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tells Biden he left state open to migrant ‘invasion’:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ripped President Biden Wednesday for the ongoing “invasion” of migrants at the southern border and warned the White House that Texas will escalate its efforts to repel illegal immigrants. 
“Your inaction has led to catastrophic consequences,” Abbott, 65, wrote in a letter to the 79-year-old president.
“Under your watch, America is suffering the highest volume of illegal immigration in the history of our country,” added Abbott, accusing Biden of “dereliction of duty.”
The governor charged Biden had refused to enforce US immigration laws and protect the state from invasion, which Abbott wrote had “forced me to invoke Article 1, section 10, Clause 3 of the US Constitution” in order to protect Texas from “invasion by the Mexican drug cartels.”
The clause in question states that states cannot call up troops, enter in alliances, or “engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
Abbott on Wednesday ordered the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Military Department to escalate efforts to slow or stop the flow of thousands of migrants illegally crossing the Mexico border each month. --->READ MORE HERE

Texas to Use ‘Every Available Strategy’ to Repel Migrants Crossing Border, Says Governor:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered state police and military forces to use “every available strategy” to repel migrants illegally crossing the border. The governor also ordered protection from “an invasion of the southern border.”
“Until Congress acts or the Biden Administration does its constitutionally required job, Texas Guardsmen and Troopers must bear the burden of securing the border,” Abbott wrote in a letter to the commanders of the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Military Department. “You must continue to keep Texans and Americans safe and protect against an invasion of the southern border. I order you to use all resources and tools available to repel immigrants from attempting to cross illegally, arrest those who cross illegally and return them to the border, and arrest criminals who violate Texas law.”
The governor called on the agencies involved in Operation Lone Star, the state’s border security and illegal immigration initiative, “defend Texas against what amounts to an invasion of America’s southern border,” a statement from the Office of the Texas Governor reads.
“Amid the Biden Administration’s ongoing failure to secure the border, DPS troopers and Texas National Guard soldiers, through Operation Lone Star, have repelled and turned back historic numbers of immigrants trying to cross the border illegally, arrested dangerous transnational criminals and criminal trespassers, and seized enough deadly fentanyl to kill every man, woman, and child in the nation,” the governor’s office stated.
Abbott also wrote a letter to Texas county judges explaining his recent executive order when invoked the invasion clauses of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions. --->READ MORE HERE
