Psaki Riled Up Over Gov. Abbott’s Plan to Ship Illegal Immigrants to DC


Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki about Texas Governor Abbott’s plan to send incoming illegal aliens to D.C.

Once Title 42 is ended, DHS is expecting as many as 18,000 coming across the border illegally each month.

Psaki claims Governors have no authority to do it. She said immigration is a federal responsibility.

However, the circumstances are unusual. The federal government is not following immigration law, but they want the Texas and Florida governors to stick with the law.

Doocy asked her on Thursday during the presser: “And the last one on this: Now that the Texas governor is saying that he’s going to start busing border crossers to Washington, D.C., when they get here, are you guys going to help them find a place to stay and something for them to do?

Psaki shot back: Well, I’m not aware of what authority the governor would be doing that under. I think it’s pretty clear this is a publicity stunt. His own office admits that a migrant would need to voluntarily be transported and that he can’t compel them to. Because again, enforcement of our country’s immigration laws lies with the federal government, not a state.

The current influx is overwhelming the border towns financially and in every other way.

Traitor Joe is ignoring Immigration Law and the Constitution. If The Federal Government vacates it’s responsibility then the States are bound by the State Constitution to take action to protect it’s people which is not denied by the US Constitution. The Federal Government can not Deny Inalienable Rights. Protection against invasion is an Inalienable Right. Because Traitor Joe refuses to Protect the Nation’s Borders he is Giving Aid and Comfort to an enemy, specifically Mexican Cartels, and so is clearly Guilty of Treason. Arguably, the Whole Congress is Guilty of Treason for Ignoring the Issue. The US Constitution is very clear on the issue of Invasion.

Definition of Invasion:
An incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity.

Article 4 Section 4 of the US Constitution:
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.

Amendment IX of the US Constitution:The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X of the US Constitution:The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The Constitution states the powers the federal government has. It does not take away the rights of states to protect themselves and enforce laws.

We will be amused by whatever legal case the feds would make against the transport, which has not yet happened. Will they claim that transport across state lines is illegal?

So far, the count of illegals transported out of Texas is: 0. When that count changes, we can talk more.
