    States Taking the Lead in Efforts to Stop Illegal Migration

    States Taking the Lead in Efforts to Stop Illegal Migration

    After decades of suffering under the burden of unfunded federal mandates that require states to pick up the cost of illegal immigration, many state governments this year are fighting back.


    Since the Reagan Administration, the federal government has done nothing of substance to stem the tide of illegal aliens blatantly entering our country.

    In response to sharply rising crime rates, identity theft, voter fraud and other problems caused by illegal immigrants, a number of state legislatures have passed laws cracking down on illegal aliens and the employers who hire them and many more will introduce tough illegal immigration bills this year.


    Instead of applauding these actions, the Obama Administration has begun suing these states, arguing that only the federal government has the right to deal with immigration matters … even if it chooses to do nothing.


    However, according to Edward Nelson, Chairman of U.S. Border Control, states do have the right to deal with illegal aliens if states can show they are being invaded. Although it is the federal government's duty to protect the states against invasion [Art. IV, Sec. 4], the Constitution also says a state may act if it is "actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay." [Art. 1, Sec. 10, cl. 3].


    This revelation has become the basis for multiple suits headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.


    "Clearly, thirty million illegal aliens unlawfully present in our country constitutes an invasion," says Nelson.

    "This fact, coupled by multiple armed incursions onto U.S. soil by paramilitary drug cartels and the Mexican Army, paints a clear picture of direct invasion that cannot be overlooked by the courts. Equally apparent is the clear dereliction of duty by the federal government to protect the legal citizens and the states."


    "Border Control has filed briefs on behalf of multiple state actions and we are pleased to offer our legal expertise to any state that is suffering due to the federal government's failure to secure our nation's borders."
