The immigration thing….. What to do?!…. What to do?!….
Sadly, we, and probably our teachers and their teachers, were never exposed to the information that would make the approach to the problem rather cut and dried.
Here we go….
You must remember that the enumerated powers, responsibilities and restrictions which are contained in the US Constitution take precedence over all other laws, executive orders, opinion polls, emotions and good intentions.
From Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution:
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…”
To which the average person with an average US education might exclaim:
“Nobody is attacking us with planes, tanks and bombs and stuff!…. This is not an invasion!”
An astute response would be:
“Teachers of the English language may not have gotten around to imparting the meaning of the word, invasion, but a true US history teacher would have emphasized the meanings of constitutional terms.”
If researching the complete meaning of “invasion” from various sources was to be an assignment, the students would assuredly find incursion of armies to be part of the definition. However, they would also discover descriptions such as:
- when a large number of people come to a place in an annoying and unwanted way
- an incursion by a large number of people
- an unwelcome intrusion
The most explicit definition regarding the question at hand can be found in Webster’s Third New International Dictionary of the English Language Unabridged.:
“the penetration and gradual occupation of an area by a population group of different socioeconomic status or racial or cultural origin”
It is not incredulous to make the claim that a society of truly educated Americans would never have blindly allowed the situation to reach the current level of crisis. Also, the required action by those who have sworn faithful allegiance to the US Constitution is still there in plain English.
There are many people of a usurping nature in the judiciary, the media, academia, public education and politics who do not like this country or its constitution. Believing themselves to be of superior intellect, they attempt to belittle others who have opposing convictions. However, no “constitutional law” professor is required to decipher that constitutional responsibility which is required in Article IV, Section 4.
Concluding this whole matter, the constitution expressly requires the office of the president, not Congress and not the courts, to execute the laws. A high crime would be committed if members of any other branch attempt to obstruct the exercising of presidential responsibilities pursuant to the constitution.
