Multiple Texas Counties Issue ‘Declarations of an Invasion’ in Response to Escalating Border Crisis – Opinion

While Texans are mighty proud of their “Don’t mess with Texas” declaration, Joe Biden has been Texas can be messed with!Since his very first day of office. Biden’s Border Crisis has now reached the point where judges from multiple Texas counties have begun issuing Declarations of InvasionIn response to unprecedented difficulties posed by an escalating influx of illegal aliens into Lone Star State, the new policy was implemented Tuesday.

Leading the effort, as reported by The Center Square, is Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan, the first Texas county judge to issue a disaster declaration in 2021 over the worsening impact of Biden’s illegal alien invasion, prompting other county judges to issue similar declarations.

In addition to Shahan’s efforts, Kinney County attorney Brent Smith has asked Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton to take steps to act under Article 1 of the Texas Constitution.

In a press conference, Shahan & Smith spoke as follows:

In the hopes of inspiring Governor. Greg Abbott must acknowledge an invading force at Texas’ border with Mexico. He should also take appropriate actions to safeguard and maintain Texas’ territorial integrity and sovereignty.

In addition, Smith told The Center Square that Kinney County supports Abbott’s efforts, while Abbott supports the efforts of Kinney County officials, as well.

Gov. Abbott recognized recently that unimaginable times call for unprecedented state and local action to protect citizens.

As a result, many border countries have taken extraordinary action to invade our Mexican border.

These counties are in support of Gov. Abbott’s efforts and request he stand alongside us and declare an invasion and swiftly act to protect Texas.

My RedState colleague Nick Arama, who reported the June report, said that border detentions had reached their highest point in 21 years. This is also 674 percent more than the Trump administration’s final year, which saw only 23,327 illegal immigrants detained. But detentions are one thing; illegal aliens released into America’s interior are quite another.

How bad can it be?

As reported by RedState’s Jeff Charles in April, more than one million illegal aliens have been released into the country since Biden took office, many on “secret” flights in the dead of night. That reality alone would lead to Biden’s impeachment in the House and conviction in the Senate in saner times. Then again in more secure times Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. might not be President of the United States.

Now back to the main business. As noted by The Center Square, Goliad County Judge Mike Bennet, who also announced a “declaration of an invasion,” and County Sheriff Roy Boyd, have been aggressively pursuing cartel-related trafficking activity coming from the border. Boyd explained to The Square that Goliad County lies 200 miles from the border. However, he said his county still has an historic role in protecting Texas against foreign invasion.

Texas was established in 1876. [sic]Texas, from its independence in Mexico up to the present day has been a major contributor to American success and exceptionality. We are encouraged to be independent and take control of our lives by being Texans.


To preserve our heritage and the life we have, we are bound to act within the limits of the Constitution. Today, we take action in spite of the complicity of the government to protect the freedom and security for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in the future.

As to Sheriff Boyd’s reference to increased drug cartel activities under Biden, Gov. Abbott’s office in April announced that efforts by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and other state agencies have led to more than 236,000 migrant apprehensions, along with almost 14,000 criminal arrests — and more than 11,300 felony charges. More than 3,800 guns and nearly $30 million worth of currency were seized.

And here’s arguably the most important statistic: In the ongoing battle against America’s Pandemic realDPS has confiscated over 300 million doses of deadly fentanyl throughout the State.

Finally, the Center for Renewing America issued a statement praising the Texas county judges and sheriff — and also taking a well-deserved shot at Biden and his administration.

Our southern border faces historic destruction, but today it is met by historic leadership. For the first time in U.S. history, several counties in Texas, outside of Congress, have declared an invasion – a constitutional solution we have been advocating for over a year.

While it’s unfortunate the Biden Administration has aided and abetted the destruction at the border and put Americans last on the world stage, we’re proud to stand with the history-making county judges, sheriffs, and attorneys who didn’t rely on the federal government, or even the governor, to protect their families, ranches and communities.

Joe Biden, on the other hand, continues to tilt at windmills.
