Gov. Greg Abbott Authorizes Texas National Guard, Texas Department Of Public Safety To Return Illegal Immigrants To Border

The following press release from the Office of Texas Governor Greg Abbott was issued today:

Governor Greg Abbott today issued an executive order authorizing and empowering the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to apprehend immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border. The Biden Administration’s decision to end Title 42 expulsions and the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings, with 5,000 migrants being apprehended over the July 4th weekend, creating a border crisis that has overrun communities along the border and across Texas.

“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” said Governor Abbott. “The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden’s open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl.”

As noted in the executive order, the Biden Administration “has abandoned the covenant, in Article IV, § 4 of the U.S. Constitution, that ‘[t]he United States . . . shall protect each [State in this Union] against Invasion,’ and thus has forced the State of Texas to build a border wall, deploy state military forces, and enter into agreements as described in Article I, § 10 of the U.S. Constitution to secure the State of Texas and repel the illegal immigration that funds the cartels.” 

“I have authorized the Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to begin returning illegal immigrants to the border to stop this criminal enterprise endangering our communities,” continued Governor Abbott. “As the challenges on the border continue to increase, Texas will continue to take action to address those challenges caused by the Biden Administration.”

Read the Governor’s executive order here. 

Governor Abbott has taken significant action to secure the border in the wake of the federal government’s inaction. Those actions include:

🔹Securing $4 billion in funding for Texas’ border security efforts

🔹Launching Operation Lone Star and deploying thousands of National Guard soldiers and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers

🔹Arresting and jailing criminals trespassing or committing other state crimes along the southern border

🔹Allocating resources that include acquiring 1,700 unused steel panels to build the border wall in Texas

🔹Signing a law to make it easier to prosecute smugglers bringing people into Texas

🔹Signing 15 laws cracking down on human trafficking in Texas

🔹Signing a law enhancing penalties for the manufacturing and distribution of fentanyl

🔹Issuing a disaster declaration for the border crisis

🔹Issuing an executive order preventing non-governmental entities from transporting illegal immigrants

🔹Taking aggressive action to secure the border as President Biden ends Title 42 expulsions, including busing thousands of migrants to Washington, D.C.

🔹Signing memoranda of understanding between the State of Texas and the States of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas to enhance border security measures that will prevent illegal immigration from Mexico to Texas

🔹Activating the Joint Border Security Operations Center (JBSOC) and directing the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Military Department, and Texas Division of Emergency Management to coordinate Texas’ response to secure the border 

🔹Creating DPS strike teams and establishing new vehicle inspection checkpoints targeting semi-trucks and other commercial motor vehicles.

Sheriff Deputies Arrest ‘Federal Magistrate,’ Texas Attorney For Human Smuggling

Wearing an orange Corpus Christi Hooks baseball jersey, attorney Timothy D. Japhet was arrested and jailed August 13 near Del Rio, Texas for human trafficking.

Some reports indicate Japhet as an “immigration attorney and federally appointed magistrate. ” He was also cited with resisting arrest.

When Galveston County Constable (working on special assignment in Kinney County) Jimmy Fullen pulled Japhet over in a rental car, he discovered four adult male Mexican nationals with him.

The story Japhet told law enforcement was that when he pulled over off the highway to let his dog out to be relieved, these men told him they were construction workers needing a ride to work in Del Rio.

Fuller initially pulled Japhet over for failing to drive in one lane, but said constable’s deputy recalled Japhet would not turn the car off and said, “I haven’t done anything wrong” when told to exit the vehicle. Border Patrol Agents soon arrived.

“While attempting to place the male in custody he was yelling ‘I’m a Judge, I’m a Judge.’ Once I had the male subject in custody, I advised dispatch the male subject was an elected Judge he corrected me and said ‘No, I am an appointed Judge,’” Fullen wrote in his report.

Japhet claimed he was on his way to Eagle Pass with his dog to gamble at the casino. From Corpus Christi to Eagle Pass, it is unusual to drive through Del Rio enroute to the casino as it adds at least an additional half hour to the trip. Even from San Antonio to Eagle Pass it would be very uncommon to take the out of the way route through Del Rio.

Del Rio is above Ciudad Acuna near Lake Amistad.

.

Fullen has been working on the border area as part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star initiative to protect the southern border from the illegal alien invasion perpetrated by the Biden Administration.

Operation Lone Star has successfully made 18,711 criminal arrests through the deployment of state resources including Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers.

Between June 1, 2011, and July 31, 2022, 259,000 illegal aliens were charged with more than 433,000 criminal offenses which included arrests for 800 homicide charges in Texas.

Japhet deemed Operation Lone Star both “unconstitutional” and “political,” suggesting he will wait for a federal grand jury or until his charges are dropped, which he said could occur in 90 days.

Constable Deputy Fullen posted about the arrest on Facebook post, but Japhet told some news organizations that he was not cited for resisting arrest, nor is he a “federally appointed immigration magistrate.”

The unofficial motto of the Lone Star State (used on keeping highways, parks, public and private events clean) is:

“DONT MESS WITH TEXAS.”

Over 9,000 Illegal Aliens Sent to DC From Arizona, Texas Borders So Far

Texas and Arizona have transported almost 10,000 illegal aliens from the US-Mexico border to Washington, D.C. on at least 104 buses so far.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused President Trump’s request and offers to provide troops in Washington for the January 6, 2021 peaceful protest, is now begging for the D.C. National Guard to be activated indefinitely to assist with the issue she calls a “growing humanitarian crisis.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott says the buses are being sent to the nation’s capital to call attention to the immigration crisis at the southern border.

Abbott has invited Bowser and New York City Mayor Eric Adams to visit the border:

“As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Abbott, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), and the Texas National Guard are continuing to work together to secure the border, stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and people into Texas, and prevent, detect, and interdict transnational criminal behavior between ports of entry.

🔹Since the launch of Operation Lone Star, the multi-agency effort has led to more than 294,000 migrant apprehensions and more than 19,000 criminal arrests, with more than 16,000 felony charges reported.

🔹In the fight against fentanyl, Texas DPS has seized over 326 million lethal doses throughout the state.

🔹Texas has also transported over 6,700 migrants to the nation’s capital–and now New York City–since beginning the busing mission in April to provide much-needed relief to their overwhelmed border communities. 

“Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border,” a release from Abbott’s office stated. “Every individual who is apprehended or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Biden’s open border policies.”

“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” said Governor Abbott. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.” 

“These people are wanting to go somewhere else. They’re not wanting to stay in Arizona,” said Morgan Carr, spokeswoman for Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ). “From what we’re seeing, they’re all primarily [headed to] the East Coast.”

Twenty-five percent of the illegal aliens who crossed the border into Arizona before hopping on a bus to Washington, D.C. said their final destination is New York. Other popular destinations include New Jersey and Florida.

Nearly 70 percent of the illegal immigrants who started their journey in Arizona were originally from Colombia. Another 15 percent were from Peru and eight illegal immigrants were from Russia.  

“If Biden will not come to the border, we’re sending the border to Biden and his administration so that they can begin to grapple with the challenges that we’re dealing with,” Abbott said, adding, “But also, we will be looking for other locations like Delaware, Biden’s home state…The people in Delaware are going to see what the people in Texas are having to grapple with.”

“As soon as they have to deal with the real consequences of the crisis, they are up in arms calling for the National Guard when they are only dealing with a faction of what we have to deal with every single day. We’re going to keep sending those buses up there until they fully understand, and most importantly, until the Biden Administration does its job to enforce the laws concerning the border.”

Greg Abbott

DPS Lt. Chris Olivarez said that the communities along the border are completely overwhelmed with the relentless surge of illegal immigrants. He explained how Governor Abbott listened to the concerns of local officials with the migrant busing mission. 

“I think it’s a great idea what Governor Abbott has done with inviting these mayors to Texas to see firsthand what we’re dealing with every day,” said Lt. Olivarez. “Some of these border communities have a population of 15,000 or 20,000 and they’re seeing 2,000 to 3,000 immigrants who are crossing every single day.”

Honest Houston Doctor Seeks $25 Million in Lawsuit Against Far Left Hospital

In 2021, Houston Methodist Hospital bragged they were the first in the nation to force their employees to leave their jobs due to the system’s forced COVID vaccine mandates, but their boasting backfired.

In June, 2021, the CEO of Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital was quoted as saying “100% vaccination is more important than your individual freedom. Everyone of you is replaceable. If you don’t like what you’re doing you can leave and we will replace your spot.”

However, in September, when Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to the entire Methodist Health System in Texas, the hospital system backed down quick.

Methodist Health changed their tune and decided to allow some employees religious accommodations to its demand that all accept the experimental COVID-19 vaccines.

A Liberty Counsel’s letter informed Methodist they were directly violating several state and federal laws.

“For the first time in the history of the United States, an employer is forcing an employee to participate in an experimental vaccine trial as a condition for continued employment,” the lawsuit argued.

The lawsuit said the Methodist hospital “became the first major health care system in the country to force it [sic] employees to be injected with an experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection (‘experimental vaccine’) or be fired.”

“Methodist Hospital is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment,” the lawsuit’s opening paragraph stated.

At Houston Methodist, 153 employees either resigned during a two-week suspension period or were terminated for noncompliance.

The former Houston Methodist employees demanded their jobs back after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order banning COVID-19 vaccination mandates.

The governor’s executive order, issued Oct. 11, 2021, banned any entity in Texas, including private employers, from enforcing COVID-19 vaccination mandates.

LAWSUIT #2

This week, a Houston physician who resigned her provisional privileges at Houston Methodist Hospital after being suspended for using social media to spread what the hospital called “dangerous [COVID-19] misinformation,” is suing the hospital for a second time.

Mary Bowden, MD, an ear, nose and throat specialist who runs a private practice, filed the $25 million lawsuit July 25 in Harris County District Court. The lawsuit accuses Houston Methodist Hospital as well as Houston Methodist President and CEO Marc Boom, MD, of defamation.

“Methodist and Boom retaliated against Dr. Bowden in an unprecedented manner. Without notice, they published false and defamatory statements to the press and on social media, affording no due process, acting contrary to and with reckless disregard for both the letter and spirit of Methodist’s bylaws,” the lawsuit reads.

During a news conference July 25, which was posted on Twitter, Dr. Bowden said she filed the lawsuit to hold the hospital accountable.

4,000 COVID PATIENTS TREATED SUCCESSFULLY BY DR. BOWDEN

“I am being punished for speaking about what I am seeing firsthand,” she said. “… I have now treated over 4,000 COVID-19 patients, and every single one of them who has received early treatment has stayed out of the hospital and survived, and no one has had any adverse repercussions from my treatment. But Methodist has made it appear that I am potentially dangerous and need to be silenced. And that is wrong.”  

Dr. Bowden voluntarily resigned Nov. 15, 2021, after she was suspended Nov. 12 for using her social media accounts to spread what the hospital described as misinformation about COVID-19. 

The Houston Methodist statement around the time of Dr. Bowden’s suspension said: “Dr. Mary Bowden, who recently joined the medical staff at Houston Methodist Hospital, is using her social media accounts to express her personal and political opinions about the COVID-19 vaccine and treatments. These opinions, which are harmful to the community, do not reflect reliable medical evidence or the values of Houston Methodist, where we have treated more than 25,000 COVID-19 inpatients, and where all our employees and physicians are vaccinated to protect our patients. Despite what she has posted, Houston Methodist does not and will never deny care to a patient based on vaccination status.”

Houston Methodist’s statement from that time also said that Dr. Bowden “has never admitted a patient at Houston Methodist Hospital,” and “is spreading dangerous misinformation which is not based in science. Furthermore, Dr. Bowden has told Houston Methodist that she is vaccinated, as required of all physicians who practice at Houston Methodist.”

The $25 million defamation lawsuit is the second lawsuit filed by Dr. Bowden against Houston Methodist.

She announced the first legal action at a news conference Jan. 17, saying she sought COVID-19 data as well as financial information from Houston Methodist.

At the time, she said: “We want to know, of the … people you have vaccinated, how many of those have had an adverse reaction, and what are they? Then, of all the people who have recently been admitted with COVID, how many of those people are fully vaccinated, how many of your fully vaccinated employees are having breakthrough cases, and of the … patients who have died in your hospitals, how many of them were refused early treatment?”

Dr. Bowden also posed financial questions, including whether the hospital has any financial relationships with the vaccine companies, and is seeking information related to hospital earnings during the pandemic.

Abbott’s October order specifically stated that “no entity in Texas” can enforce vaccination against anyone, including an employee or consumer, who objects “for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19.”

Beto Watch Out, Beto Not Cry, Beto Not Pout?

The Democrat from El Paso who wants to be governor of Texas, besides being known as the candidate who failed in a Senate race against Ted Cruz, actually lost despite tons of money thrown at him by George Soros funded organizations.

In that 2018 race, $80 million–a record at the time–came from wasted socialist-liberal donations to Francis O’Rourke. The majority of it poured in from New York and California.

Like the many liberal puppets Soros has funded in District Attorney races across America, O’Rourke had skirted from obscurity as a do-nothing Congressman, to failure as a Senate candidate, and a presidential wannabe.

In the March Texas Primary, O’Rourke took 91% (846,966 votes) of the ballots moving him to the Democratic candidate spot for the November 8, 2022 election against Gov. Greg Abbott.

When O’Rourke ran for governor last time, Abbott had plenty to say about Soros:

“Liberals think they’ve found cracks in our armor.

“In 2014, I won Harris County and Bexar County. In 2016, Hillary won them both.

“What happened?

“George Soros for one.

“He poured big money into Harris County and they won every county-wide race.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who announced his 2018 bid for re-election in July 2017, has invoked George Soros as a threat to Republican hopes in Texas. Soros has yet to put money into Texas state elections, records suggest.

“Liberals are messing with Texas.

“Every far-left liberal you can think of from George Soros to Nancy Pelosi is trying to undo the Texas brand of liberty and prosperity.

“I have news for the liberals. Texas values are not up for grabs.”

It may be a positive feature in liberal Austin, Houston, Ft. Worth, much of San Antonio and in his hometown of El Paso, but O’Rourke’s dark past Is well known in Texas.

🔹He was the attention-seeking active member of a computer hacking group called “Cult of the Dead Cow” where he posted his fiction about killing children and called himself “Psychedelic Warlord.”

🔹His arrests and lying involved Driving While Intoxicated and Burglary violations.

For years he has been known as a spoiled, rich egotistic attention seeker.

Beto O’Rourke’s Political Grandstanding in Uvalde Backfired No Matter How Much Fake News Slants It

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick shared his take on Beto O’Rourke’s “political stunt” at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday following the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“I could never imagine that on this day when we were there to not only disseminate information and learn more, but were there to be with these families that he would pull such a political stunt,” Patrick said. “You know, I thought and I said in my comments after he finally left, that can’t we have just one day, one week, one month of us all coming together for these children that’s not a political stunt, not partisan politics?”

“Where’s our humanity? And what we found out is Beto O’Rourke was more interested in his political ambitions than he was about these families. And that’s what I think was really the tragedy of his behavior,” Patrick noted. “It showed he really didn’t care about these people and that’s what we were there for.”

During O’Rourke’s political stunt, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin yelled, “[Y]ou’re a sick son of a b—- that would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.”

Someone in the audience yelled at O’Rourke “get the f— out of here” with another male voice booming,” Uvalde doesn’t deserve your nonsense and we don’t want you here.”

On the Fox News “Hannity” program Mayor McLaughlin said it is “too important” in the aftermath of tragedy to properly reflect, and allow public officials to provide grieving families the information they need without political histrionics.

“That was not the time and place to have that discussion. If he wants to have that discussion, that’s fine. But today at that conference was not the time or place to do that,” he said.

McLaughlin

“My heart is broken for these families that lost these children… but that’s the problem. Every time we have one of these, it’s a political deal. What happened to the grown men that we elected to represent us in Congress?”

Texas Gov. Abbott, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Border Patrol Council Attack Biden Border Baby Formula Policy

A joint statement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) President Brandon Judd released Thursday, May 12, 2022, attacked the Biden Administration for providing baby formula to illegal immigrant holding facilities as American parents scramble amid a nationwide shortage of the product.  

“Children are our most vulnerable, precious Texans and deserve to be put first. Yet, President Biden has turned a blind eye to parents across America who are facing the nightmare of a nationwide baby formula shortage.”

“While mothers and fathers stare at empty grocery store shelves in a panic, the Biden Administration is happy to provide baby formula to illegal immigrants coming across our southern border. This is yet another one in a long line of reckless, out-of-touch priorities from the Biden Administration when it comes to securing our border and protecting Americans.” 

“Our children deserve a president who puts their needs and survival first – not one who gives critical supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he took an oath to serve.” 

Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) also delivered remarks about Biden’s failures with the continual food security and pricing crisis. 

Greene identifies the origin and outcome of stress within the supply chain caused by government intervention into the overall system.  MTG then notes that FDA rules and regulations make supply interruptions worse.

Additionally, in the background of the federal DHS and HHS contracts for food products, including baby food/formula, most of those federal contracts contain a ‘first right‘ or ‘prioritized continuity‘ provision, creating a distribution outcome (via contractual mandate) where illegal aliens end up with preferential allocation.

Democrats, Biden Border Crisis Designed to Destroy US National Security

Crime across the United States continues to soar as Joe Biden acts like the COVID-19 virus is smart enough to realize when to turn itself off at the southern border or on in an airplane.

The Biden Border Crisis is flagrantly designed to go against the first duty of a real American president–the national security of the United States.

🔹Border Agents apprehended almost one quarter of a million (221,303) illegal aliens in the month of March, 2022.

🔹This is a 28% increase from the 173,277 illegals apprehended in March 2021. Biden, who is in the White House (when he is not in Delaware) due to massive election and voting fraud, has yet to visit the Border.

🔹Because of President Donald J. Trump’s historical immigration policies, by March 2020 the number of Border apprehensions was 34,460.

Following the Barack Obama-George Soros plan, puppet Biden, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and the CDC  intend to end Title 42 at the border.

Popular memes

Former acting ICE director Tom Homan notes the hypocrisy from Biden and Mayorkas who continuously criticize the Trump administration for “inhumane methods” of border security with little regard for America’s health and safety. Homan revealed that more migrants have died because of Biden’s policies and neglect. He cites the opioid crisis and the record numbers in the amounts of fentanyl coming across the border.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott caused a stir within liberal media and the Biden Administration last week by:

🔹beginning the busing of illegal immigrants caught in Texas to Washington DC,

🔹implementing the inspection of every single commercial vehicle at ports of entry to combat human trafficking and drug cartels.

🔹worked with Arizona, California, and New Mexico to sign agreements  with Abbott to coordinate on illegal migration.

These four border states expect massive waves of migrants from around the world because of Biden’s rejection of Title 42 in May, 2022. Border Agents, state troopers and other law enforcement will be hit hard at ports of entry, throughout the Rio Grande, deserts and in rural border areas.

“They’re overwhelmed,” stated John Katko (R-NY), who is the ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee. “They’re going to lose complete operational control of the border, if and when that surge happens.”

“Everyone, including Homeland Secretary Mayorkas, understands that a surge is coming after Title 42 is gone,” Katko revealed.

The Biden Administration knows there are too few local or state resources–funds and law enforcement-to maintain border security.

There are not enough resources, either in personnel or funds, for law enforcement to handle the Biden border crisis. Border towns and cities are without enough resources to manage the situation.

Cartels, aware of the booming opportunities handed to them by the destructive forces within the US government, are able to greatly increase human and illegal drug trafficking. Biden has purposefully created a humanitarian crisis.

The Biden Border Crisis is flagrantly designed to go against the first duty of a real American president–the national security of the United States.

Gov. Abbott Visits Medina Lake Area Fires

North of Medina Lake, Saturday

Prepare Now as More Evacuations are Possible

Governor Greg Abbott is currently meeting with local emergency crews and fire fighters in Medina and Bandera Counties in lieu of significant fires in the region that remain under Red Flag Alert.

Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) Chief Nim Kidd tells us the Lone Star State has been experiencing many grassfires due to lack of rain, low humidity and gusty winds.

Abbott and Kidd

At least a dozen counties are currently under disaster declarations, with more expected by Gov. Abbott after his visit to the Medina Lake area today.

Fire officials are warning nearby residents to remain aware of fire development and be prepared to leave quickly if they receive an evacuation order.

As of 3 p.m. (CST), a large brush fire south of Medina Lake more than doubled in size since Saturday. It is now up to 1,062 acres (30% contained) fire officials report.

Medina County officials are monitoring to determine if more evacuations will be necessary Sunday evening and Monday.

Report at noon on Sunday.

“It’s always a good idea in these situations to have a ‘bugout bag’ prepared and in the car or near the exit of each home,” Kidd advised.

“Be sure to preplan your escape routes to leave early as possible as it is far safer than to be slowed down or trapped due to others evacuating at the last minute.”

Mandatory evacuations have been issued for this weekend with shelters provided for residents near the area. 

The fire began Friday night and has continued into Sunday. Fire crews will maintain their operations overnight to bring the blaze under control. 

People are advised to remain clear of the area. Smoke will likely remain visible from San Antonio and can directly impact the air quality near Medina Lake, Bandera, Pipe Creek, Boerne, Comfort, Medina, Centerpoint, Camp Verde and Kerrville. 

Immediate Areas of Fire Management concern:

  • East of County Road 271
  • West of the Medina River 
  • South of F.M. 1283 
  • County Roads 2651 and 2652
  • The town of Mico

Shelters are available at the following locations:

  • Loma Alta Middle School (266 County Road 381 South) 
  • Fire station on FM 1957  
  • Circle K at the corner of FM471 and 211

Childhood Sex Changes and Puberty Blockers is ‘Child Abuse’ Under Texas Law

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a formal attorney general opinion concluding that performing certain “sex-change” procedures on children, and prescribing puberty-blockers to them, is “child abuse” under Texas law.

Texas Capitol

The holding comes at a critical time when more and more Texans are seeing the horrors that flow from the merging of medicine and misguided ideology.

Specifically, the opinion concludes that certain procedures done on minors such as castration, fabrication of a “penis” using tissue from other body parts, fabrication of a “vagina” involving the removal of male sex organs, prescription of puberty-suppressors and infertility-inducers, and the like are all “abuse” under section 261.001 of the Texas Family Code.

“There is no doubt that these procedures are ‘abuse’ under Texas law, and thus must be halted,” said Attorney General Paxton. “The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) has a responsibility to act accordingly. I’ll do everything I can to protect against those who take advantage of and harm young Texans.”

This opinion comes after Attorney General Paxton opined in an October 2019 letter to DFPS, stating that the “transition” of James Younger—the biological male son of Jeff Younger—to a “female” through puberty-blocking drugs, among other things, was “abuse” under at least three definitions set out in the Family Code, and that DFPS, therefore, had an independent duty to investigate. 

The opinion also follows Gov. Abbott’s August 2021 letter to DFPS requesting a determination of “whether genital mutilation of a child for purposes of gender transitioning through reassignment surgery constitutes child abuse.”

The Commissioner of DFPS replied that “genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse.”

During his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden signaled support for children as young as 8 years old being able to change their genders.

Later, in agreement with the extreme far-left progressive movement, he nominated Dr. Rachel Levine, who identifies as a transgender woman, to be the United States assistant secretary for health.

During Levine’s confirmation hearing, the health official refused to rule out allowing a child to override parental consent in pursuit of hormone therapy or sex-change surgery.

Abbott Warns Texas Agencies to Scrutinize New Federal Contracts

“… be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott warned all state agencies to scrutinize any funding agreements or contracts to “carefully assess their implications” in preparation for the $1 trillion congressional infrastructure bill possibilities.

Abbott

“Should the acceptance of any federal funds hinder or needlessly constrain the state, commit the state to ongoing costs for which there is not an appropriation available, or require an agency to implement a federal policy contrary to the law or policy of this state, the agreement proposed by the federal agency should not be signed,” Abbott’s letter reads.

“Please be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

The warning comes on the heels of unanswered questions about the attached strings tied to the federal coronavirus aid, specifically whether recipients must adhere to “all other applicable federal statutes, regulations, and executive orders” from the federal government.

The funding is intended to finance “drinking-water infrastructure, broadband access, transportation, airports, and more.”

Is This America’s Sure Legal Way To Stop The Washington DC Madness?

What do Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Commentators Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Charlie Kirk and Ben Shapiro, Lt. Col. Allen West, Dr. James Dobson, Florida Senator Mark Rubio, Texas Congressman Chip Roy, Ben Carson, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Governor and Governor Mike Huckabee have in common?

They all support a Convention of the States to fix an out of touch and overspending Washington DC.

America needs 34 states for a Convention of States Resolution, to call for a limiting of federal power, spending, and terms of office.

Currently, 16 states have now joined the call: Georgia, Alaska, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, North Dakota, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Utah, Mississippi, and Wisconsin.

“Thank goodness our Constitution has given the states and the people a framework to step in and save the Republic when Congress will not. Today we sent a message that Wisconsin stands ready to rein in federal overreach,” said Wisconsin State Senator Kathy Bernier following the Badger State joining the first 15.

“Times like these are precisely why the Founders created the mechanisms in Article V,” agreed Wisconsin State Representative Dan Knodl. “Federal overreach has thrown our country into chaos, and it’s time for the states to exercise their authority as granted to them in the constitution to restore order, states’ rights, and limited, constitutional government. I’m incredibly proud that our state has officially thrown its support behind this movement.”

Senators in Nebraska are expected to take their final vote on the COS Resolution in a matter of days.

Once 34 states apply for a convention to propose amendments on the same issue (i.e., limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government), Article V requires Congress to name the place and the time for the convention. If it fails to exercise this power reasonably, either the courts or the states themselves can override Congressional inaction.

The coalition of Americans who have joined the Convention of States Action group indicate they have “built robust teams in all 50 states, some of which are tens of thousands of patriots strong.”

“Washington, D.C., is broken. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people,” the group emphasizes. “It’s time American citizens took a stand and made a legitimate effort to curb the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.The Founders gave us a tool to fix Washington, D.C. We must use it before it is too late.”

Many of their members and teams have secured a local or state elected position in various states. Some of the most noteworthy achievements include:

In Virginia, COS District Captain Karen Greenhalgh won a race against an incumbent candidate for a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates.

In New Jersey, Convention of States Petition signer Edward Durr shocked the nation in 2021 when he ousted the longtime president of the New Jersey state senate, Steve Sweeney. .

In Texas, State Director Shelby Williams won a seat on the Plano City Council in 2019. Initially faced with two opponents, Shelby gained enough grassroots support to prevent the well-known incumbent from garnering the 50% of votes required to win outright in the May 4th election, thereby triggering a run-off election. Though ending 2.5 points behind on May 4th, in the final June 8th vote, Shelby pulled ahead to a 53-47% victory. 

In Ohio, Mike Carey won a seat in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District on Nov 4, 2021, replacing resigned Rep. Steve Stivers. Mike signed the COS petition at the Madison County, Ohio county fair in July 2021.

In Wisconsin, former COS State Director Tom Peters was elected to the County Board in Brown County.

In Minnesota, John Heinrich won his election thanks in large part to Convention of States volunteers. In 2018, Heinrich faced four challengers in the primary, two of whom were against a Convention of States and two of whom were noncommittal.
