There are three references to the words “invasions,” “invaded” and “invasion” in our U.S. Constitution:
Article I, Section 8: “The Congress shall have Power To Provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel Invasions.”
Article I, Section 10: “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
Article IV, Section 4: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in the Union as 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.”
As an officer of the Center for Teaching the Constitution, I urge you to write your federal elected legislators to immediately act upon these references and put a stop to the invasion of all the illegal immigrants we are experiencing. Our U.S. Constitution mandates that invasions shall be repelled by Congress, and that means the persons in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Our nation’s sovereignty must be protected.
