The legal and binding duty and the oath taken to “defend and protect” lies exclusively with the chief executive of either the country or in this particular situation the state.
However more important than a simple legal requirement is the moral obligation and the awesome responsibility to ensure the well-being of each and every citizen, against an alien invasion.
In an exclusive interview Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst announced that a three-week effort for the state of Texas to secure the border was a resounding success.
“In the Rio Grande Valley sector, nearly nothing moved in those three weeks. We shut it down. We had teams of Texas law enforcement in the brush, high altitude aircraft, gun boats, and more.”
The border has been a highly contentious issue, mainly because, during Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of the United States, the border has remained open to drug and human trafficking as well as illegal immigrants
Border agents are even reporting that they have been told by the Obama Administration to institute “catch and release polices.”
Prompting Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, testified to Congress that;
“We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether.”
No doubt what the Lieutenant Governor is doing is commendable, however it’s simply a temporary fix, and that’s why this upcoming election, is perhaps the most important within our lifetime, in that it will decide if indeed America is a sovereign nation, with borders, and laws, or simply a lawless state that will continue being dismantled until it ultimately implodes from within.
