On Thursday, Gov. Mike Dunleavy signed onto a statement with 24 fellow governors from around the nation in support of Texas Gov. Greg Abbot’s ongoing efforts to secure the Southern border.

The statement was released by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem one day after Abbott accused the Biden administration of breaking its compact with states to ensure the national border from invasion.

The conflict dates back to this past October when federal border patrol agents were ordered to remove razor wire that was installed by Texas officials along a section of the Rio Grande border that was particularly prone to illegal crossings.

On Jan. 21, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to let Department of Homeland Security federal border agents to cut this razor wire. That decision lifted an injunction from U.S. Court of Appeals that had blocked this action.

Abbot, however, is not backing down, and has ordered additional wire to be installed along the border. His Wednesday statement blasted Biden for violating his oath of office to secure the national border.

In standing with Abbot, the 25 governors stated the following:

“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.

“We stand in solidarity with our fellow Governor, Greg Abbott, and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy, including razor wire fences, to secure the border. We do it in part because the Biden Administration is refusing to enforce immigration laws already on the books and is illegally allowing mass parole across America of migrants who entered our country illegally.

“The authors of the U.S. Constitution made clear that in times like this, states have a right of self-defense, under Article 4, Section 4 and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Because the Biden Administration has abdicated its constitutional compact duties to the states, Texas has every legal justification to protect the sovereignty of our states and our nation.”

Governors who signed the letter include:

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Sanders, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Idaho Gov. Brad Little, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry, Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte, Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen, Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Utah Gov. Spencer Cox, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, and Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon.

    Thank you, Gov Dunleavy, for standing for the American people and Texas in particular at this time. God bless you. Stay strong and true to what is right.

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    We are originalists and we understand the need for a U.S. Constitution to be obeyed and monitored by the two other branches of government. The fourth branch of government which is “the swamp,” the unelected, self-appointed outlaws need to be dissolved. Hurray for govenmors who know they are the law enforcers in each state. That is their power! Keep praying for Revival and for our Constitutional Republic.!!!

    • Lucinda says:

      Do you pray for the immigrants that get lacerated and bleed to death in the river?

      • Lobo says:

        Do you question why they were there to begin with ? … They are simply … “immigrants” … to the peoples who have no respect for our nation’s constitutional laws, our national security, financial securities, ( trillions of dollars of increasing debt), and our Vets are being put in the waiting lists at the VA, so that the Illegal “invaders” can, and do, get priority services. Some of the Vets and senior citizens have actually been ejected from housing in order to make room for these so called “immigrants”… That is a fact… The illegal invaders are getting “free” housing, and other financial aids at the expense of our veterans. School sports gyms, and school buildings shut down for their “free” housing… Totally free healthcare,… paid for by American citizens who have to pay for their own healthcare. Free public, and college education.. Free airplane, and bus tickets to travel to the red states, all paid for by “us”…This isn’t addressing the later on bussing provided by the state of Texas, who ,by the way,.. is saving money by getting them out … into the Democrat “sanctuary” states.. Who are now crying about the “invasion” .. We have a constitution, which is being violated by this federal government, and in so doing, committing acts of treason.. A crime that used to be addressed with a firing squad, or gallows.. In short.. These “invaders”, to which you refer to, came as a result of this lawless federal government broadcasting .. “” Everyone,.. Come on in for freebies, and vote democrat”” .. And.. you do know that you are breaking our nation’s laws.., you do already know that the concertina wires are there.. but,, Oh.. to hell with it… I would then ask… Is your front door wide open to anyone who decides to just walk on in for some freebies.. ??? I kinda doubt that.,.. and it is the exact same thing that we are dealing with now.. We have invaders from all over the World coming across that border,.. invited by the federal government… and that’s just fine for some folks… BUT…We just don’t want them to get hurt while invading.

  • Lee says:

    We pray for them to not undertake the perilous journey to enter our country illegally. We pray for them to keep their precious children safely at home & not send them on a journey to an uncertain future and often a terrible fate at the hands of child traffickers.

    • Lobo says:

      In doing so, there is a tremendous number of innocent Americans who would still be alive today.. American citizens who would not have been murdered, and/or raped by this illegal invasion. There a a lot of them now, that travel by sea, to invade through our Northern border as well… Of those millions, there have been terrorist linked individuals apprehended.. We don’t know how many evaded apprehension.. Are we now headed for another 9/11 ? .. I do hope not.

      • Lucinda says:

        Lobo. From a human dignity and productivity standpoint, immigrants are only different from American citizens in one respect: paperwork. The way you distinguish between innocent Americans and illegals is despicable. Ten bucks says there are way more American citizens engaging in the crimes you have listed that illegals.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Amen! My thoughts exactly Lee! Thank you! Well said.

    • Elizabeth Henry says:

      Agree. Amen.

  • Citizenkane says:

    Lucinda, you mock the LORD and then you question the prayers of another. You have my prayers and my pity as well. Your worship of satan will not end well for you. Repent and be saved.

    • Lucinda says:

      Kane. Pray all you want. Won’t affect me. Nothing fails as reliably as prayer.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        CitizenKane, have you ever seen such hatred of the One that created ALL CREATION? Lucy puts so much faith in her master the original serpent and his demons. She will find out the truth eventually. I, too, pray for her to repent for her sins and ask for forgiveness.

      • jon says:

        I agree with you

  • Edward reeder says:

    It is cheaper for illegals to fly here than pay cartel as guides. They must be banded from flights; are criminals and traffickers; ms13 and Chinese military ; other military !
    Some flights here only 100$ or so!
    Good for Texas and Alaska for holding the line!
    Good article too!

    I just watched a livestream of Texas boarders at the park
    Where all the drama is playing out.
    He drove down the road past the international bridge to the next gate. It was 1/2 mile away and open and completely vacant of anyone. He then went to next open gate 1/2 mile it the same with a lot more gates!
    I wonder who will win the Soapy Smith award this year!

  • Lucinda says:

    FOSOH: I’ve probably said this before, but how can I hate something that does not exist? You’ve been fooled by your religion. You want to be fooled because you’re scared of death.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      God Almighty has the power to give life and take life. Those who have faith in and believe in God Almighty, repent for their sins and ask for forgiveness have a chance for everlasting life. Those who mock God Almighty will find out what is in store for them. I have faith in and believe in God Almighty, therefore I do not fear death. Even if my humanly body is destroyed, God Almighty tells me that he knows me and will not forget me when the time comes to wake up all of the humans sleeping in death.

    • Mary Rapp says:

      Mr. reeder, your video doesn’t show anybody being turned back, or checked in any way. Try going into Mexico and being allowed to do that. I guarantee that Mexico’s gate will not just let anybody pass by. We are the only country that is foolish enough to do this. I have a brother and dear friend living in Eagle Pass and can assure you that they have thousands of illegals that nobody knows what to do with. The residents live in fear. They tell me that there are many illegals being found dead which is not reported as nobody cares. They say the cartels rule the border. We have a friend who has a ranch near the border and he left his place temporarily and is living elsewhere as he’s in fear for his animals and family. He’s hoping that the next president may bring some respite so he can go back to his little ranch. Few people know about how many problems Texas residents as well as the illegal immigrants are incurring due to the present invasion of our border. Most illegals are not told so do not know the problems they may face until they get to the border as the cartels just want their money. The schools are jammed, and many residents are teaching their kids at home or sending them to private schools due to fear. El Paso is bad too as drugs are so rampant there. Some of my family used to go get their dental work done across the border as it was less expensive, but they stopped as they’re afraid of all the choas and crime they see. I’m told the border patrol, just the past year, grabbed 167 who were on their terrorist list. Who knows how many are here and stealthily regrouping until they are ready to strike? We don’t know what diseases are being brought into our country either as they are just allowed to come in. I don’t think anyone is against people coming to our country as long as they follow our laws, and don’t come expecting to be given a free cell phone, free health care, free food, free housing, free education and etc..etc.. that regular Americans don’t get. We can’t afford all those free bees. Our American citizens who are low income or find themselves homeless are being short changed as monies budgeted for them must now be given to all the immigrants. The latest is that now the VA, which handles our veterans health, must now provide healthcare to these illegals. What do we think will happen to our veterans who need care? Is this fair? Is this how we should treat that group of Americans who give their life that we may continue with our way of life? We just lost three soldiers in the middle east, and many more wounded. Election year or not, the fact is that what our present president is allowing at the border is uncaring and un-American. It’s a scary time, and Americans need to wake up and see the present danger to our way of life.
