Border Security Is Required by the US Constitution

Border Security Is Required by the US Constitution

Thousands of people streaming north out of Central American nations that are plagued by poverty and violence have been in the headlines for weeks now. Many wave the flags of the nations they claim to be fleeing while attacking The President and The United States in general.

The hoards move in large waves. Many are waving flags while pelting American border agents with softball sized rocks and bricks. They are trying to overwhelm our immigration system with a mass of humanity.

Our immigration system isn’t broken. It has been turned off. It has been turned off by those on the left that think those flooding into the country will become new voters that will keep them in power and those on the right that are just looking at the bottom line of cheap labor. Neither side seems to care as much about the country as I do.

For decades our immigration system worked just fine. In fact America brings in more than one million people into the country, legally. We are more generous with immigration opportunities than any other country in the world.

Now we are facing a ‘crisis at the border’ we are told by the 24-hour news media that is giving it wall-to-wall coverage. Those in the drive-thru junk-food media are feeding its viewers a steady diet of “America is bad and racist” to its viewers.

What they fail to tell anyone is that The President and Congress are required to control the border and turn away the waves of would-be illegal aliens storming the gates. They are required to protect the nation and our republic form of government.

How can I say that? Well it's written quite clearly in the Constitution.

Article 4, Sec. 4 of The United States Constitution makes it clear the Federal government must stop such an incursion of foreigners into the country exactly like the one we are seeing. Here is what was written by our Founding Fathers concerning our republican form of government.

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

From where I stand in the nation's heartland, what we are seeing at the southern border is by definition an invasion. When thousands of people are marching on the border waving flags of other countries and attacking those protecting our border — what else would you call it? When they are demanding entry and show a complete lack of respect for our laws and those enforcing them, what would you call it?

This may not be what the Framers envisioned and it might. It is perfectly clear to me that those rushing the border are not doing so to be Americans but are trying to run over Americans in pursuit of something they believe they are entitled to.

I however am entitled to the protections spelled out in the Constitution and I demand those in Congress obey their oath to uphold and defend our founding documents. They are required to do so. Any failure to secure our border would be an actual Constitutional Crisis but don’t expect NBC or CNN to talk about it anytime soon.
