Reporting on #BidenBorderInvasion for an episode of “Law & Border” on Real America’s Voice News, Ben Bergquam courageously brings facts and information to the American people, against the demands of the Biden administration that the media do not report on what is happening at our Southern Border with Mexico.
Recently, while on assignment in Texas, Ben videotaped a group of military men and women in training for a mass migration event.
“We were invited to join Texas National Guard training for a #MassMigrationEvent (Invasion) on the Southern Border in Mission TX in preparation for the end of Title 42 and the illegal invasion that is expected to explode on May 23,” Bergquam reported along with a clip from the following video footage.
People are growing increasingly frustrated with the actions of both Republican Governor of Texas and Democrat Joe Biden, as they see a mass invasion happening soon.
Stripes.com reported on Abbot’s reaction to the likely coming invasion :
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday ordered the state’s National Guard to begin building mass detention areas along the border with Mexico and form boat blockades in the Rio Grande out of concern that changing federal policies will increase illegal crossings into Texas.
“Texas will be taking its own unprecedented actions this month to do what no state in the America has ever done in the history of this country to better secure our state, as well as our nation,” Abbott said during a news conference from the border town Weslaco.
The new measures are part of several additions that Abbott announced for his border security mission, known as Operation Lone Star, that will also order other state agencies to search commercial vehicles crossing into Texas from Mexico and charter buses to deliver legally processed migrants who volunteer for the trip to the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Abbott said the actions are in response to President Joe Biden’s decision to end a pandemic-driven border policy known as Title 42. The public health policy allowed federal Border Patrol agents to send migrants back across the border quickly because of concerns they would spread coronavirus.
The policy is scheduled to end May 23, and Abbott said the federal government is preparing for up to 18,000 illegal immigrants crossing per day.
Newly appointed Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelzer, commander of the Texas Military Department, joined Abbott during his announcement.
In his frustration with White House policies that have unleashed an historic Noah’s Flood of mass migration through Texas, Republican Governor Greg Abbott has responded with innovative state enforcement strategies, real money (nearly $4 billion), and maybe a few dashes of political theater to gratify his base.
The governor, who is seeking reelection in November, followed this script at his April 6 news conference here in Austin with the colorful idea that Texas bus migrants to Washington, D.C. This one drew the lion’s share of media attention and, from his Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke, a cat-call of “stunt!”
But Abbott’s directive that the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) conduct “enhanced safety inspections” of commercial vehicles coming off the international bridges from Mexico is the more interesting idea and qualifies as a potentially serious innovation with real impact. The governor could not — and did not — say its intent was to disrupt international trade from Mexico, which could spark federal lawsuits for injunctions (and might anyway).
But Abbott did very pointedly note that having his state police agency inspect vehicles coming off the international bridges would “dramatically slow” traffic from the nation’s largest trading partner “to help ensure that Texans are not endangered by unsafe vehicles and their unsafe drivers”.
Boiled down, Abbott’s use of state authority to create leverage on another sovereign nation for a particular outcome amounts to nation-on-nation diplomacy that is recognized as the province of the White House and the U.S. Department of State. Abbott’s proposal here dog-whistles that Texas is going to take this on, which is . . . innovative.
This bears close observation, to see if it works as diplomatic leverage against Mexico’s governors, mayors, and president. But also to see whether the Biden administration might respond if the gambit does work as I’ve described.
So it will be interesting to see how the powers that be handle what we already know is heading out way.
