**The following resolution was passed by the SREC during their 3rd Quarter 2022 meeting, held September 24th 2022.
WHEREAS, allied forces comprised of troops from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada conducted an invasion named D-Day, June 6, 1944, with a combined force of approximately 156,000; and
WHEREAS, the State of Texas has been invaded at the D-Day rate every month for the past 18 months; and
WHEREAS, Governor Abbott recently cited a study which estimated that a recent court ruling allowing the Biden administration to end the “remain in Mexico policy” could increase the number of illegals entering Texas to 18,000 non-citizens daily, which would constitute an increase to one D-Day invasion every 10 days; and
WHEREAS, the health, safety, and welfare of Texans are under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling coming across the U.S. border from Mexico; and
WHEREAS, the sophisticated human smuggling and drug trafficking organizations that facilitate these criminal acts are spearheaded by violent international drug cartels that have operational control over our unsecured U.S.-Mexico border; and
WHEREAS, their stated mission requires Federal Border Patrol Agents to “safeguard the American people” and to deny “illegal entry along the border between ports of entry” to any and all “undocumented non-citizens”; and
WHEREAS, The Department of Homeland Security has ordered their trained and dedicated Border agents to process into the United States an unlimited number of illegal non-citizens with complete disregard for their own stated mission; and
WHEREAS, this invasion constitutes a violation of the Guarantee Clause, Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, as it relates to the Federal Government protecting any state against invasion; and
WHEREAS, the Founders ratified the U.S. Constitution to include a remedy for each sovereign state if the Federal Government has willfully abandoned its duty to defend the states against invasion; and
WHEREAS, this constitutional authority provided by Article I, Section 10, Clause 3, to repel the invasion is the legal solution available to Governor Abbott; and
WHEREAS, on September 21, 2022, the Governor of Texas has identified certain cartels as terrorist organizations and has called upon the Biden administration to create certain federal terrorist designations for these cartels which have not occurred; and
WHEREAS, the Governor of Texas has also directed the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies to identify Texas gangs that support Mexican drug cartels; and
WHEREAS, multiple counties have so boldly declared an invasion because the health, safety, and welfare of their residents are under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling coming across the U.S. border from Mexico; now
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that Governor Abbott should declare that Texas is being invaded; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Governor Abbott should organize the appropriate assets of Texas to repel this growing lawless invasion; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Governor Abbott should transport, by any means available, an increasing number of undocumented illegal non-citizens across the same border they illegally crossed; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Governor Abbott’s actions must be implemented in order to extinguish the worldwide incentive for millions of undocumented non-citizens to continue to gain illegal access to the United States via Texas; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution shall be sent to Governor Greg Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, and Speaker Dade Phelan.
