Insecurities of Border Security

A lot has been made about Trump’s use of the word invasion. Let’s consult the Constitution, shall we? See what it has to say.

The Constitution:
Article I; Section 8 (Congress)
15: To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

Article I; Section 9 (Congress)
“2: The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.

Article IV; Section 4 (states relations)

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Now given that our own legislature has not risen to the challenge and taken action to protect and secure the border is ignoring their duty. Who is violating their oath?

You can draw all the pertinent conclusions about it you want but I don’t see a problem with the term invasion, which is specifically mentioned in the Constitution.

Of course a borderless, lawless country would have no such worries. So, many Islamists would like to call murder an honor killing, too, but it doesn’t change what it is. Likewise, substituting the word caravan(s) doesn’t change an invasion.

Presidential oath:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Congressional oath:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

See how that works? There is something about the “well and faithfully” part.

Who is lying?
