Militia: Repel the Invasion of Illegal Immigration

Only the Militia could supply para-military and police forces of sufficient size to take control of America’s borders.

Militia: Constitutional Remedy to Repel the Invasion of Illegal Immigration

Repulsion of invasions by aliens with no even colorable claim to entry has become critically important for maintaining the sovereignty, independence, freedom, and prosperity of every State and of the Union as a whole. For America cannot remain sovereign if she cannot control her own borders and decide who is, and especially who is not, entitled to entry and residency, let alone citizenship—particularly if, because she cannot enforce her own laws as to citizenship, individuals unqualified therefore nonetheless end up voting in elections for, or even themselves serving in, high public offices.[1] America cannot remain independent if aliens—and citizens as well—who still account themselves loyal to some foreign state can take over important segments of her economy, can gain oligopolistic control over and thus manipulate her mass media, and can intervene in her electoral and legislative processes—either quantitatively, taking advantage of their large numbers; or qualitatively, because, albeit relatively few in number, they have concentrated in their hands disproportionate amounts of wealth or other means of exerting influence. Thus tied involuntarily but increasingly tightly by “political bands” to one or more foreign countries and alien political systems and cultures, America can no longer enjoy “among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle” her.[2] America cannot remain free if she becomes saturated with aliens—let alone purported citizens—who fail, neglect, or refuse master the language in which her laws and history are written and to study and adopt as their own the tenets of political philosophy and science on which her government is based—and, worse yet, who may be ideologically inimical to the fundamental political, legal, economic, and social principles on which she has always operated. And America cannot remain “one people” if huge influxes of unassimilated aliens and disloyal citizens who refuse to conform their behavior to those principles Balkanize her society. Everywhere it has taken hold, Balkanization has proven to be a dynamically destructive process that proves the truth of the old admonition, “a house divided against itself cannot stand”. Once they sense themselves in the ascendency, aliens and citizens hostile to America’s traditional way of life will set about to demolish every native institution that they can not or will not understand, and to replace them with new, but faulty institutions that reflect the folkways in the foreign lands to which they bear true allegiance—or perhaps will simply allow native institutions to be overthrown in a flood of political, economic, and social chaos. This intense internal dissension over and disregard of fundamental principles will deprive America, first of freedom in a vain attempt to retain security, and then of security, too.[3]

Nowhere could such action be more timely and required today than in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and California. These States are actually being invaded by illegal aliens. And invaded not just by Mexicans (as well as other foreigners) as individuals, but also by Mexico and who knows what other countries and international organizations in collusion with her as foreign powers. Indeed, the specific role of the Mexican government in fostering and assisting this invasion—for what could be called Lebensraum and revanche—is openly, brazenly proclaimed by her own Presidente. This is war—waged in fact, if not declared in law.

Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the Constitution provides that

[n]o State shall, without the Consent of Congress, keep Troops * * * in time of Peace, * * * or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Under their present circumstances of “actual[ ] inva[sion]” and “such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay”, the front-line States could arguably even raise “Troops” (that is, standing armies) and deploy them, without “the Consent of Congress”, at least until Congress or the President took effective action to repel the invasion. In any event, and especially with Congress and the President inactive, the front-line States need seek no consent from Congress (or anyone else) to mobilize their own Militia to protect their own borders and people.

To the contrary: Congress labors under a constitutional duty to “call[ ] forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union * * * and repel Invasions”, because “[t]he United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion”. Article I, Section 8, Clause 15, and Article IV, Section 4. When necessary, this duty requires Congress to “provide for calling forth the Militia” from as many other States as necessary to succor those in the front line.[1]
