Texas Gov. Greg Abbott invokes Texas constitution to respond to the high number of illegal immigrants flooding the U.S. southern border.
From The Gateway Pundit:
Over five million illegal aliens have crossed the U.S. southern border with Mexico since Joe Biden assumed the presidency on January 20, 2021 and threw out President Trump’s successful policies that had secured the border. The flood of migrants at the border continued in October, with nearly 300,000 contacts/gotaways reported by Customs and Border Patrol. “I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion,” Abbott announced. ... Article 4 Section 7 of the Texas Constitution states, “GOVERNOR AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF MILITARY FORCES. He shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State, except when they are called into actual service of the United States. He shall have the power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the State, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.” As a result, Gov. Abbott has decided to deploy military tanks to ten different locations along the Texas–Mexico border, aside from gunboats.
