Lee Zeldin: Congress ‘Swore an Oath’ to Defend U.S. Against ‘Invasion’ At U.S.-Mexico Border

The situation along portions of the U.S.-Mexico border have become so dire that some lawmakers are finally starting to equate the mass of humanity crossing illegally into our country to what it is: An invasion.

And, as members of Congress who have sworn to protect and defend American soil from invasions, these lawmakers are stepping up and calling for an end to the shenanigans.

One of them is Rep. Lee Zeldin, a New York Republican who is also announced he intends to run for governor of his state next year.

In an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo for her “Sunday Morning Futures” program, Zeldin didn’t mince words when describing what’s going on along the southwestern border and how every lawmaker in Congress, including these shirtless, camel-riding Democrats in Qatar, ought to be doing about it.

“It’s a staggering crisis at our border right now,” he said. “Reality is setting in. We have as members of Congress an oath … provide for the common defense, funding the Department of Homeland Security and ICE, Border Patrol” to enforce “the rule of law.”

“We talk about people who come across her border and …you look at those numbers we also have to take account for the things that come across — the drug trafficking and arms trafficking, the story behind these numbers often times labor trafficking and trafficking as well,” Zeldin added.

Zeldin went on to say that the federal government has got to provide all the resources needed because that’s the federal government’s obligation, regardless of who’s sitting in the Oval Office.

“It’s important for those in government to provide all the resources to law enforcement to do their job safely, effectively because this is not just something that crosses the border but it quickly spreads to cities and communities across the country,” he noted.

Zeldin isn’t the only one sounding the alarm. Several border region law enforcement agencies and sheriffs have made similar appeals to a Biden regime that apparently couldn’t care less.

“It’s a huge influx of alien smuggling going on around here,” Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe told Fox News in May. “Every night it’s always something. Over the weekend, in one incident, we stopped four vehicles. All four vehicles were traveling together; all four vehicles had aliens in them.”

“It’s just nonstop. I’ve never seen anything like this in 35 years here,” Coe continued.

He went on to say that the situation “is getting more and more dangerous all the time” as well.

“Now we’re encountering more and more firearms,” he said. “Used to, you’d catch an alien smuggling a load, they were passive. They’d get out of their vehicle. Now, they want to run. They’re driving through fences. And they’re startin’ to carry firearms.”

Clearly, the regime is acting in ways that are encouraging more illegal immigration. Just this past week Biden signed an executive order barring ICE from detaining and deporting pregnant or postpartum women.

These are purposeful actions aimed at replacing substantial portions of our population with eventual voters who will be forever grateful to the Democratic Party for allowing them to break our laws with impunity and become squatters in America.
