Texas Gov. Abbott Invokes ‘Invasion’ Powers to Return Illegal Immigrants to Mexico

"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott took an unprecedented step on July 7 toward mitigating the border crisis, issuing an executive order that directs state law enforcement officers to apprehend illegal immigrants and return them to Mexico at an international bridge.

“I … do hereby authorize and empower the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to respond to this illegal immigration by apprehending immigrants who cross the border between ports of entry or commit other violations of federal law, and to return those illegal immigrants to the border at a port of entry,” Abbott’s executive order states.

The order comes two days after five Texas counties declared the crisis an “invasion” and urged Abbott to respond at the state level, using his constitutional powers.

Abbott states that the Biden administration “has abandoned the covenant, in Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, that ‘[t]he United States . . . shall protect each [State in this Union] against Invasion.'”"

    As an Arizonan, I've held this opinion for quite a while. Apprehend. Jail in a secure open air tent city that is heavily guarded (people and dogs) in the middle of nowhere (we have plenty of it) with modest and meager meals (green bologna, pick scrubs, plastic slippers) for 3 months only and then deport. If its all about economics and sending money home to mexico then having the bread winner in a tent wasting away in the Arizona heat for 90 days will decimate faux monetary incentive the left loves to use.

    Or a serious and sustained blood bath. One time is all it takes before you learn the dog bites.

      Yes put a kink in the illegal human slavery scheme. I think this was the strategy of Sherriff Arpaio. He successfully interrupted the slavery apparatus by doing exactly what you just outlined. Is why the deep state rigged Maricopa elections. They were after the Sherriff because of his success. Hope the Texas Gov picks up on this and replicates Arpaio;s strategy. If law enforce drops them off at the boarder they will simply find a hole and return. The supply chain must be interrupted.

      And that is treason. Me dino has not kept with our current Liar-In-Chief's lifelong span as a career politician but several times I read it opined the he has been a professional liar from the get-go.
      This I know for facts. When due to a rigged election "President" Joe Biden he raised his right hand and swore to protect The Constitution, he knowingly big time perjured himself and betrayed We The People.
      For the first of many times. With more to come.

    I live in Sierra Vista, Arizona -- 10 miles from the US - Mexico border. I can hike right down to the border, and while there, see the visible consequences of having stopped funding / building The Wall. There is a marker where the AZT (Arizona Trail) begins ... right there at that marker is where the 30 foot metal slats wall stops -- and where a few strands of barbed wire continue. Illegals make their way through that wire fence daily. For the Border Patrol, it's a lot of catch and release. This is not an engineering problem -- finish the wall -- where it exists, it is effective.

    Previously, when Trump was president we didnt have: inflation, mass influx of illegal aliens, internal killings in our cities, high taxes, and many other things that are currently afflicting our country.

    It would be cheap to hire a fleet of buses, fill them with illegal border crossers, give them a water bottle and a baloney sandwich and send them as far south as the bus can go, with fuel reserves for the return trip to get the next load.
