Greg Abbott Reaches Limit, Invokes Invasion Clause to ‘Fully Authorize Texas to Take Unprecedented Measures’

Republican Governor Greg Abbott has announced he is invoking the invasion clauses of the U.S. and Texas constitutions to protect our southern border and defend his state.

Abbott warned that he has been forced to “take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion.”

The move is the latest effort in the governor’s long battle to secure the border.

“I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion,” Abbott said.

“I’m using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe.”

He then listed the actions he will take to protect our border because President Joe Biden refuses to do so.

Gov. Abbott says he will:

  • Deploy the National Guard to safeguard our border & to repel & turn back immigrants trying to cross the border illegally;
  • Deploy the Texas Department of Public Saftey (DPS) to arrest & return to the border immigrants who crossed illegally & deploy DPS to arrest illegal immigrants for criminal activity;
  • Build a border wall in multiple counties on the border;
  • Deploy gun boats to secure the border;
  • Designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations;
  • Enter into a compact with other states to secure the border;
  • Enter into agreements with foreign powers to enhance border security; &
  • Provide resources for border counties to increase their efforts to respond to the border invasion
