The founding fathers of the United States of America created a constitution founded on the principles put forth by those identified as Federalists. They advocated and supported a system of government in which several states united under a central authority.
The first political party in the United States was The Federalist Party, made up of traditionalist conservatives.
They determined that there had to be one group solely responsible for creating the new nation’s immigration policies. They chose the Congress and it was enshrined in the Constitution:
Article 1, § 8, clause 4 of the United States Constitution
“To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;”
A problem our founders did not clearly address in the founding documents is what states could do to protect their citizens when the Executive Branch abdicates its role by not protecting the borders of the nation.
With the Biden administration not enforcing immigration laws, millions upon millions of illegal aliens and migrants have walked across our borders, taking residents in states throughout the nation. A new record of 221,203 illegal alien apprehensions was recorded in March. This was a 33% increase from the previous year
Twenty-six Republican governors have had enough. They announced on Tuesday the formation of the ‘American Governors’ Border Strike Force’ that aims to combat the Biden-made open border crisis.
The creation of the American Governors’ Border Strike Force was led by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Texas Governor Greg Abbott. The task force’s goal is to “disrupt and dismantle the transnational criminal organizations taking advantage of the chaos Joe Biden has created along the southern border,” according to the news release.
“The new strike force will aim to target cartels and criminal organizations operationally and financially by increasing collaboration, improving intelligence, investing in analysis, combating human smuggling, and stopping drug flow among each of the participating states,” the news release announced.
“Biden’s reckless immigration policies and the lack of adequate federal resources have caused an unprecedented increase in criminal operations along the southern border and in communities across the country. Every state is a border state, dealing with the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs into states across America. Republican governors have repeatedly stepped up to fill the void with state National Guard and state law enforcement reinforcements in Texas and Arizona, and an effort last year to request a meeting with Biden to offer 10 policy solutions that could immediately relieve the crisis at the border.”
Signatories to the memorandum include Governors Doug Ducey (AZ), Greg Abbott (TX), Kay Ivey (AL), Mike Dunleavy (AK), Asa Hutchinson (AR), Ron DeSantis (FL), Brian Kemp (GA), Brad Little (ID), Eric Holcomb (IN), Kim Reynolds (IA), Larry Hogan (MD), Tate Reeves (MS), Mike Parson (MO), Greg Gianforte (MT), Pete Ricketts (NE), Chris Sununu (NH), Doug Burgum (ND), Mike DeWine (OH), Kevin Stitt (OK), Henry McMaster (SC), Kristi Noem (SD), Bill Lee (TN), Spencer Cox (UT), Glenn Youngkin (VA), Jim Justice (WV), and Mark Gordon (WY).
This is a great first step for these states to collectively try to fight against the intentional flooding of their states with foreign nationals, by an administration not fulfilling its Constitutional duty to protect the borders of our nation.
If the GOP can take back the Congress and Presidency by 2025, they could start to reverse the tide.
My plan is to stop all immigration legislatively, stop all payments to non-citizens and deport them all.
