Florida Fortifies Texas Border

1 March 2024

3.1 MINS

Amidst the chaos unleashed by the Biden Administration’s open borders policy, Florida has stepped up to buttress Texas’ attempt to safeguard American citizens.

Florida’s citizen-soldiers are being mobilised to help Texas fortify against what’s been dubbed the Biden border crisis.

Governor Ron DeSantis announced the decision on 2 February in defiance of the White House’s border order.

Biden has demanded barriers be removed because they obstruct Federal Agents from processing “migrants” already on US soil.

So dogged is this Democrat demand for “migrant” processing, their administration took Texas to the Supreme Court in order to wipe a lower court ruling which upheld Texas’ right to refuse illegal entry.

Holding Firm

Rather than replace razor wire with red carpet, Texas governor Greg Abbott dug in, saying,

“Texas’ razor wire is an effective deterrent against the illegal border crossings encouraged by Biden’s open border policies. We continue to deploy this razor wire to repel illegal immigration.”

An official statement posted by Abbott on X, Jan. 24, accused the woke White House of breaking the contract between the United States and the States.

Instead of enforcing laws, Abbott said Biden was guilty of encouraging lawlessness.

Ready-Made Democrats

Offering support at the time of the ruling, 25 Republican governors issued a joint statement condemning Joe Biden’s inaction, arguing that his abandonment of the border has made the United States vulnerable to attack.

This was further propped up by Elon Musk stating, “Texas is absolutely right. This administration is deliberately breaking the law by aiding and abetting illegal immigration at an unprecedented scale!”

He has since intensified his dissent, going as far as accusing the Democrats of importing voters.

“Biden’s strategy is very simple,” Musk said.

“1. Get as many illegals in the country as possible. 2. Legalize them to create a permanent majority – a one-party state. That is why they are encouraging so much illegal immigration. Simple, yet effective.”

Musk also explained,

“A few other things you probably don’t know: illegals in America can get bank loans, mortgages, insurance, driver’s licenses, free healthcare (California & New York) and in-state college tuition.

“What’s the point of being a citizen if an illegal gets all the benefits, but doesn’t pay taxes or do jury duty?

“If you’re wondering why housing is so expensive, this is a major contributor,” he concluded.

Illegal immigration, and economic migrants who pay human traffickers to skip legitimate immigration queues, continue to pour millions of people into the United States.

All of whom are largely unvetted, unannounced, and unknown.

Citizen Action

The 1,000 service personnel from Florida’s 12,000 strong National Guard follow a similar 30-day NG deployment in May last year.

The battalion will include a contingent of citizen-soldiers from the State Guard, to ‘assist Texas in erecting barriers at the border to stop the invasion of illegal [immigrants] aliens.’

An FDR initiative still active in 23 US states, Florida’s State Guard was recently reinstated by Governor Ron DeSantis after being mothballed for 75 years.

Mission ready, the State Guard’s purpose is humanitarian, with a focus on ‘rapid response during manmade and natural disasters.’

In his speech unpacking reasons for the deployment, DeSantis said,

“I believe a state has a right to fortify its own borders.

“If Texas is helping to erect barriers, putting up razor wire; doing other things to keep illegal [immigrants] aliens out, I want to be helpful with them doing that.”

He then asserted, “I don’t want to be part of the Federal Government trying to tear down these barriers, letting more people in illegally.”

DeSantis’ battalion will pad a team of 90 law enforcement officers who have been on the ground since at least 2021.

The official announcement tallied the number of illegal immigrant encounters for 2023 to be 2.3 million, with at least 169 later found to be on terrorism watchlists.

Since Biden’s coronation in 2020, ‘10 million immigrants have illegally crossed the border.’

With known drugs, weapons, and human trafficking being made worse by the Biden border blunder, many images of illegal immigrants show most to be military-aged men.

This notable characteristic of the illegal immigrant invasion has heightened concerns.

Those concerns are enough to prompt 2024 presidential hopeful Donald Trump (among others) to describe military-aged men entering the country as “a little suspicious.”

There is only one reason for a decapacitating fifth column entering under the radar, via the southern border.

That reason is forward advance for all out warfare, civil or foreign.

For those right to be concerned about “President” Biden’s neglect, Red Dawn (1984) fiction becoming reality isn’t a matter of if; it’s a matter of when.

Still, try as they might to mess with Texas, they won’t get past DeSantis.

Florida resisting ‘Build Back Better’ Biden not only fortifies the United States border, it reignites good old American revolutionary resolve.

    Good on Texas and Governor De Santis for ignoring Biden’s orders who wants to flood the USA with more instant Democrats ! I loathe Biden as a heretic—no real Catholic can be in favour of abortions, etc ! We have the same problem here —flooding Australia with Moslems from Africa and the Middle East, not by boat , but, coming by the plane -load (MORE MIGRANTS this year THAN EVER BEFORE imported by Albanese & co !) ready-made Labor Voters to keep Albanese in power forever and to give us a Treaty and Reparations(taxes on all non -Aboriginal ) and a Republic with a President ( for life and not elected by the people ? )–taking away our Freedoms and dividing our country even more ! Originally, I was going to vote for Australia becoming a Republic and I made a donation to the Republican Movement , but, the more I thought about it, the more distasteful the idea of a Republic became, so, I have now joined “The Monarchist League of Australia Inc” and asked the RSL to rejoin me as a member ( my deceased husband was an Australian soldier whose Scottish family hated the Crown because it had dispossessed them of the island of Islay in the Hebrides in1647 ) . Now I am going to get a flag -pole and proudly fly the Australian flag a young man gifted to me many years ago. All this even though it was the British and Americans who completely obliberated my parents’ home town in WW2 with 50 Fire-Bombings, made me a starving child refugee and my beloved Great-Uncle dig irrigation ditches for 7 years as a POW in Africa. We have an Australian system of constitutional government which works well , so, why change things ? I have signed the “GET WELL “card for King Charles to get better. With my background I never thought I would see the day when I would become a Royalist supporter ! I remember with respect and love my colleagues in the ATO , all those returned Diggers from WW2 who fought at Tobruk, in the Australian Navy in the Pacific, Kokoda Trail, etc , and , especially my neighbour , Johnny Hackett , a Commando , and, of course , my husband who served in Confrontation. For the first time I feel like a REAL Australia, not someon whom the Lancaster Bombers failed to hit !
