“Kinney County, Texas, has declared the ”existence of an invasion” at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The county’s declaration also calls for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, to ”acknowledge the existence of an invasion on our border with Mexico.”
Five other counties — Uvalde, Terrell, Medina, Burnet and Goliad — spoke in support of Kinney County’s declaration.
Officials from Kinney and the other five counties met on Tuesday to discuss their concerns regarding the increasing number of migrants crossing the border from Mexico into Texas.
A press release from Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan detailed the increase in human smuggling in the county, stating that in June, ”Kinney County law enforcement has prevented over 67 smuggling attempts along our roadways.
”This past weekend included the unfortunate deaths of 3 illegal aliens who were involved with human smuggling in Kinney County. Kinney County (Brackettville) has been forced to militarize our school campus with vehicle barriers to prevent high speed chases from entering campus and injuring children.
”As a Texan, this is not acceptable. We will no longer allow the sovereignty of Texas to be invaded by those unwilling to obey our laws,” Shahan continued. ”That is why today, July 5, 2022, Kinney County, joined by several other counties on the Texas border, are declaring the existence of an ”invasion” as used in Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution and in Article 4, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution.”
Comment: The memory lingers on in Texas of the state’s ten years or so as an independent country. The Mexicans had enough of these madmen after San Jacinto and walked away. There are several US states that have an experience of independence before admission to the Union. Vermont is another, but in Texas the experience left strong marks. They feel their state sovereignty.
Will Abbott join them? What will Joe Joe the Chinese laundry guy do about this? pl
