States Struggling to Battle Biden Border Invasion

States Struggling to Battle Biden Border Invasion

The Biden Border Invasion is not an accident nor the result of incompetence. It’s federal policy.

The goal of the Biden administration is to bring in millions of illegal aliens and settle them on U.S. soil. It’s been working and thus, from the perspective of the administration, it's a successful policy.

The states, of course, have to deal with the problems caused by this agenda. And they are, with distinctly different approaches and varying levels of success.

Let’s look at a few states and how they are doing:


The U.S.-Mexico border is 1,954 miles long. Of that total, the Texas portion is 1,254 miles. That’s a lot of ground to cover.

For several years, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been taking action to secure his state's border.

It hasn’t been as successful as we would like, but Texas has a presence on the border and a legal argument to be there.

Recent reports (see here and here) indicate that the Texas National Guard is having some success in actually pushing illegal crossers back into Mexico. (This strategy was suggested in a prior article by yours truly.)

The great advantage of this tactic is you don’t have to worry about what to do with the detainees, just push them back into Mexico.


The Oklahoma legislature recently passed a law establishing the crime of impermissible occupation, allowing for the removal of illegal aliens.

However, Oklahoma’s Governor Kevin Stitt (contact him here) is tolerant of illegal foreign labor and is confused about how the state's government should work.

Stitt thinks that the Mexican diplomatic corps is the fourth branch of Oklahoma government and appointed the Mexican Consul to a task force set up to facilitate foreign labor.

But not to worry, Governor Stitt – the law was to take effect July 1, but on June 28, Federal Judge Bernard M. Jones put a hold on it. His Honor said that Oklahoma can’t undermine federal law.

With all due respect, Judge Jones has it backwards. It’s the federal government that’s undermining federal immigration law.


In the state of Iowa, the “illegal reentry” law was signed in April but it has also been blocked in court.


This is a bizarre one.

In June, Maura Healey, governor of the “sanctuary” state of Massachusetts, dispatched messengers to the border to warn illegal invaders that the Massachusetts system of shelters is full and can’t take any more illegals.

Why not just ask the federal government to control the border?


Last year, the state of Florida passed a law designed to deal with the illegal alien influx into that state. It took effect July 1 (see here and here).

It includes mandatory E-Verify, a prohibition of granting IDs to illegal aliens, and other measures.

Another stipulation of the law is that hospitals administering Medicaid have to inquire about the immigration status of their patients.

Guess what? Not even a year later, this stipulation has reportedly decreased government spending.

"Florida’s Emergency Medical Assistance program for undocumented immigrants has seen a 54 percent drop in expenditures billed to Medicaid this year — with less than two months remaining in the fiscal year — since the state immigration law took effect," Arek Sarkissian reported last month in Politico.

There’s a lesson there. Cracking down on illegal immigration reduces government spending in the long term.

There are naysayers.

Thomas Kennedy of the Florida Immigrant Coalition says that it can’t be proven the decrease is a result of the law.

However, he does admit that, “Obviously, there’s been somewhat of an exodus of migrants in Florida. When this was all going through — we had warned about the exacerbated work[force] shortages and the distressed industries — we said this would be a bad idea.”

Of course.

According to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, "We made sure when you have people show up at the hospital that we're asking about immigration status, and that's caused the Medicaid expenditures to plummet by 50%.”


It’s difficult, but states can make a difference.

Meanwhile, the presidential election is four months away...
