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….”
Yet, 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.
The 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.
The 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.
The 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.
