Three More Texas Counties Want To Declare Border Invasion, Total At 32

Three more Texas counties have express support for the state declaring an invasion at the southern U.S. border, bringing the total number of counties to 32

  • The most recent counties to make such declarations are Ector and Lavaca with Texas having 254.
  • The judge and county commissioners of Ector County last week signed a Declaration of Local State of Disaster stating the “health, safety, and welfare” of residents are “under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling coming across the U.S. border from Mexico.”
  • The declaration also states the “sophisticated human smuggling and drug trafficking organizations that facilitate these criminal acts are spearheaded by violent international drug cartels who have operational control over our unsecured U.S./Mexico border.”
  • Myers cites recent U.S. Customs Border Patrol data that shows over 5 million people have since January 2021 been apprehended or evaded apprehension at the southern border, including dozens on the terrorist watch list.
