‘America no more’: White House spox says states ‘should not be meddling’ in border policy

President Joe Biden’s policies have demonstrated an “America last” position throughout much of his term, but now the president seems to be transitioning to an “America no more” posture as he actively works to undermine and subvert constitutional protections for states’ rights.

As Americans have struggled with inflation fed by Biden’s agenda, the president and his progressive allies have gifted international bodies billions in taxpayer dollars and resources to bolster their security while widely ignoring the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. With no response coming from calls to act, Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) took an executive measure to secure his state and American sovereignty Thursday, earning condemnation from the White House for “meddling.”

At Friday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked, “Gov. Abbott in Texas issued an executive order today calling on the National Guard and officials there to apprehend undocumented immigrants. So I’m wondering if the administration is planning any legal response and if you’ll prohibit the National Guard from participating?”

“So I’ll say this: Immigration enforcement is a federal authority,” she responded, “and states should not be mandating it – meddling in it.”

Jean-Pierre went on to add, “That is just – especially governor of – Texas Gov. Abbott, who has a track record of causing chaos and confusion at the border. So I would refer you to DOJ on any legal matter. But, again, immigration enforcement is a federal authority.”

Like rising gas prices and supply chain issues creating shortages of food, baby formula and other essential goods, this reaction from the administration can only stand to indicate that the immigration crisis is not a flaw but a feature of the president’s agenda.

Abbott stated, “The Biden Administration’s decision to end Title 42 expulsions and the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings, with 5,000 migrants being apprehended over the July 4th weekend, creating a border crisis that has overrun communities along the border and across Texas.”

The governor’s executive order was a response to the crisis itself and the fervent calls from county officials along the border who have labeled the ongoing influx of illegal immigrants an invasion that demands a constitutional response.

References were made to Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution which 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; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

So too was Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 cited for stating, “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress…engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”

Not only has Biden positioned himself to be against Texas protecting itself, and by extension the nation, from the dangers of drug cartels and human traffickers, his policies are leading to the degradation of the forces that would be used to repel such an invasion. As previously reported, “over 60,000 National Guardsman and Reservists have been barred from performing their military obligations to protect the nation because they are not willing to violate their conscience by getting the Covid-19 jab.”

Furthermore, the president is looking to take executive actions to override the Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade and returned the right to legislate on abortion to the individual states. Biden has shown absolute contempt for the 10th Amendment and the will of the people who have a right to govern themselves with his efforts to provide access to abortions in states where the practice has been banned.
