The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday concerns the southern border. The U. S. Constitution delegates control of immigration to the federal government. Article IV, Section 4 states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion….”
the Biden administration refuses to repel the invasion at the southern border.
In fact, the federal officials seem to be allowing anyone into the United
States that wants to come – somewhere between three million and five million migrants
have crossed the border in the past two years. The federal government is not
doing its job, and border States are being overrun by migrants surging there.
Trump administration was building a wall to stop such an invasion, but the
Biden administration stopped construction on the border wall on day 1. Governor
Greg Abbott of Texas and Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona are doing what they can
to build walls. Notably, Ducey is filling in the gaps in the border wall by
double-stacking shipping containers welded together and topped with razor wire
in the Yuma and Cochise Counties.
federal government is suing the state of Arizona over the shipping container
border wall. They say that Ducey’s actions are illegal because they were put on
federal property without permission.
State of Arizona sued the federal government for not doing its job, and the
federal government is suing the State of Arizona for trespassing on federal
lands. Time will tell who wins the legal process. Meanwhile, migrants continue
to pour over the border and enter the United States without any officials
knowing who they are, what they are doing here, or where they are living.
