Governors claim right to defend their states

And they fault Biden for the problem, pointing out that they think he’s pushing for a “civil war” with his open border demands.

The Washington Examiner has reported on a new poll.

The survey, from I&I/TIPP, revealed almost 60% of respondents want finished the border wall President Trump launched.  The poll found that nearly 6 in 10 want the border wall completed.

According to the Examiner, “The score wasn’t close: Among all respondents, 59% supported constructing a wall along our southernborder, either ‘strongly’ (41%) or ‘somewhat’ (18%). Just 32% oppose the idea, either ‘strongly’ (17%) or ‘somewhat’ (15%).”

GOP support, at 85%, is a huge majority, while even 43% of Joe Biden’s Democrats support the plan he has fought ever since he took office and canceled President Trump’s security measures.

In fact, Biden abandoned hundreds of millions of dollars in supplies that already had been positioned to be used on a security barrier, letting long stacks of steel beams and barricades rust in the weather after taxpayers purchased the supplies.

The reasoning for the support isn’t complicated. The poll showed that voters “fear that the crisis started by President Joe Biden could turn into a civil war.”

“War between the states? Apparently, it’s not at all far-fetched. Many Americans see illegal immigration as a make-or-break issue,” the survey said.

By a margin of 49%-38%, voters said that they are concerned about open conflict over illegal immigration.

It turns out that those Democrats in Biden’s party are just as concerned about that issue as members of the Republican Party.

Further, a report at The Center Square said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been joined by 13 other Republican governors in insisting they have the right to secure borders – and the right to self-defense.

“Half of the governors of the United States have joined with Texas in our cause to make sure states should do everything possible to secure our border,” Abbott said. “We are here to send a loud and clear message that we are banding together to fight to ensure that we will be able to maintain our constitutional guarantee that states will be able to defend against any type of imminent danger or an invasion that has been threatened by Joe Biden and his abject refusal to enforce the immigration laws of the United States of America.”

He cited the self-defense clause of the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3.

Joining Abbott were the governors of Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Tennessee, and Utah.

Texas is in a pitched court battle with Biden over his demands that the state allow an open border for illegals coming from around the world through Mexico into the United States.

Some governors even have pledged to send their National Guard troops to help Texas secure its border.

The report explained, “Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, ‘obviously by the strong showing and the sheer number of governors that are stepping up across the country, it’s very clear that this is not just a fight that Texas is having. This is a fight that all of us have to engage in.'”
