States Can Stop the Migrant Caravan ‘Invasion’ Using Their Military Forces Under Constitutional ‘War Powers’

Ken Cuccinelli, the former Attorney General of Virginia, revealed that individual states have a Constitutional remedy for stopping the migrant caravan at the border and eliminates due process and catch-and-release.  If a state is invaded, they may invoke ‘war powers’ which allows the state, without permission from anyone, to have a military response to the invaders.  The migrant caravan stormed through Mexico last week, tearing down a border barrier in the process as they crossed from Guatemala to Mexico, and may certainly be considered invaders.

President of the Senate Conservatives Fund and former Attorney General of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli says the United States Constitution uniquely gives states the authority to stop the “invasion” of a migrant caravan headed to the U.S.-Mexico border.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Cuccinelli explained to Breitbart News Political Editor Matt Boyle how the states can halt the 7,000-strong migrant caravan that is marching to the U.S. through Mexico, designed to overwhelm the country’s asylum and immigration system.

Cuccinelli said:

Article 1 Section 10 of the Constitution, third paragraph, lists some things that the states can do under some certain circumstances. And [the Constutition] says that no state shall enter into war without the permission of Congress unless they are actually invaded. Well, here it comes. [Emphasis added]

First of all, we’ve been being invaded for a long time so the border states clearly qualify here to utilize this power themselves. And what’s interesting is they don’t need anyone’s permission. And because [the states are] acting under war powers, there’s no due process. They can literally just line their National Guard up — presumably with riot gear like they would if they had a civil disturbance — and turn people back at the border. Literally, you don’t have to keep them, no catch-and-release, no nothing. You just point them back across the river and let them swim for it. Maybe you have a little courtesy shuttle and drive them over … and leave them there. The states can do that, interestingly enough, and the federal government can’t. [Emphasis added]

When someone comes across your border without your permission, it’s an invasion. Their purpose here is to violate the border, to violate our sovereignty for their own purposes. That’s an invasion. And here, I don’t think with the caravan it’s even debatable because you’ve got an entire group that’s organized itself to come into the country. [Emphasis added]

Listen to Cuccinelli’s full interview here:

President Trump on Monday announced that he would begin the process of cutting off foreign aid to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador for their inability to stop the migrant caravan from marching up to the U.S.-Mexico border. The president also called the caravan a “national emergency.”

The Central American countries receive more than $500 million in federal aid from the U.S. every year. Trump has not yet indicated how much of that federal aid will be cut.
