The Constitutional Crisis at the Texas Border

The Texas Governor and the National Guard of Texas defying the Supreme Court of the United States is a dangerous precedent. People are dying at the border and the US Border Patrol is unable to enforce federal law to save lives. This borders on insurrection.

Already in the last 24 hours several additional states have pledged “support” to Texas. Breaking news hours ago shows a “caravan” of right wing militias travelling to Texas to join the conflict.

Mr. Biden, you must federalize the Texas National Guard immediately to end this. Their actions are a violation of the must fundamental and sacred foundations of the US Constitution and American democracy. Any delay will only embolden these dangerous elements.
