I was contacted by concerned citizens in Texas to write a letter to Governor Rick Perry. This is not a Texas border crisis. This is a NATIONAL border crisis. We must express our discontent for the negligence of our governors in their refusal to ACT. Let us work together to secure Liberty. Lets make a NATIONAL campaign to send this letter not just to Gov. Rick Perry, but EVERY governor in this Republic. Send it once. Send it twice. Send until the borders are sealed and the States are enforcing the law and securing Liberty! My prayer is that this letter floods this land so this truth cannot be ignored or denied. It is time for We The People to remove our consent of these dangerous and unlawful acts of government!

Dear Governor Perry,
This border crisis is the perfect opportunity to operate as a State should operate and be on the forefront of limiting an out of control federal government. As Governor, you not only have the power, but you have the obligation to the people of Texas to get the borders secured immediately. Governor Perry, please allow me to reinforce your desire to secure the Liberty of the people of Texas with a few Constitutional and historical facts.
On July 2, 1776, when the Continental Congress ratified the Lee Resolution, the framers of this union created 13 Independent Sovereign States. This is very clearly written and then repeated in the text of the Declaration of Independence published on July 4, 1776. The relevant portion reads:
“That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.”
Your power as Governor is derived from the nature of the creation of these States in 1776. Texas is a Free and Independent State, with no different power than the “State of Great Britain.” In 1776 there was no central government and the creation of the States by the people vested the States with the same power as all other sovereign governments on the globe. The formation of the Constitution did not eliminate the states’ sovereignty and the Tenth Amendment confirms that.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” Tenth Amendment
We must take notice that the powers are “delegated” to the central government “by” the Constitution. Understanding that the States were vested with the “full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do” in 1776, the power delegated to the central government via the Constitution had to come from the States.
The word “delegation” legally means “the entrusting another with a general power to act for the good of those who depute him.” (See Black’s Law Dictionary) When a power has been “delegated” it is not permanently surrendered. When the one “entrusted” with that power fails to act in that trust, the power reverts to the delegator. The federal government has been “entrusted” with the power to secure the borders of our country “for the good of” the States. The federal government’s abject failure to do so means that power and responsibility reverts to the States.
You do not have to sue the federal government to do their job. You do not have to petition them any longer. Their failure means that you now have the power and the obligation to secure those borders for the security of the people of your State.
Texas Senator Dan Patrick admitted on the Laura Ingram Show that illegal immigrants are coming into Texas in greater numbers than people born in Texas. He gave some very alarming and disturbing numbers regarding the number of criminals that are coming across the border. Governor Perry, you have the power to stop this. You have the duty to the people of Texas and to the other States in this union to stop this. We are glad that you are mindful of the eternal consequences, and that you are doing the right thing. You have the power, and that will only be disputed by those who wish to enslave your people and deny the States their rights.
Our prayers are with you, Governor Perry. We are praying that you continue to do the right thing; the right thing for the people of Texas, for the people of the United States, and for the Constitution. The state of this nation and the Liberty of the people lie in your hands. Please help us defend liberty for our children and the future of Liberty around the world. Seal the borders. Preserve the Constitution. Preserve Liberty. May God lead you and guide you. May God have mercy on this country and the State of Texas.
