Il­le­gal in­va­sion

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - Betty Gault Cor­doba San Mar­cos, Cal­i­for­nia

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.
