Shocking Border Video & Shocking Legal Stupidity

By Mike Huckabee Published on March 26, 2024

Thursday, a shocking video of illegal immigrants overpowering a group of National Guard troops appeared — an incident we may someday remember as the pivotal moment that destroyed Joe Biden’s reelection chances. (So expect the media to do everything in their power to suppress it, but I don’t think they’ll be able to.) They will try to make us all go to the polls with images of the January 6 riot in our heads, but I think most voters will have the image of this violent mob in their minds instead, and it’s much more current and has a lot more impact on all Americans.

America Under Invasion

In El Paso, Texas, the mob broke down barriers and charged into the U.S., shoving and overwhelming a small number of National Guard troops who were trying valiantly to hold them at bay. (Remember that the Biden administration has gone to court to try to block even that much of an attempt to stop the invasion.)

When a mob of people from another nation break through barriers and charge across your border, overwhelm the troops trying to guard it, and enter your nation illegally with no intention of leaving, what else is that but an invasion?

Yes, I used the word “invasion,” and after seeing this video, I doubt that most Americans will have any patience with woke clowns trying to deny that we’re being invaded or calling that term “xenophobic.” When a mob of people from another nation break through barriers and charge across your border, overwhelm the troops trying to guard it, and enter your nation illegally with no intention of leaving, what else is that but an invasion?

I predict this will resonate massively throughout 2024 and impact the November elections. If that’s not video of America under invasion, then what is it? If you deny that, then you might as well call Russia’s invasion of Ukraine a “surprise drop-in.”

Stealing the Right to Self-Government

Also last Thursday, Obama-appointed federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed a lawsuit by the conservative Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) challenging the District of Columbia ordinance that allows noncitizens, including illegal immigrants and foreign embassy staff members, to vote in municipal elections. She ruled that the IRLI lacked standing (that too-familiar dodge) to sue because it can’t demonstrate how it is harmed by noncitizens voting and running for local office. In her 12-page ruling, she wrote, “They identify nothing that has been taken away or diminished and no right that has been made subordinate to anyone else’s.”

Well, I didn’t attend Harvard like Jackson did, so I can’t fill up 12 pages with legal gobbledygook to justify my refusal to do my job of protecting the Constitution, so I’ll just put this in plain English: That is one of the most infuriatingly stupid things I’ve ever heard in my life.

For years, I have written about how critics of election integrity laws who claim the laws “suppress voters’ rights” are actually doing that themselves. One of the most important fundamental rights in this nation is having a say in who is going to govern you. Every illegal ballot cast negates the legal ballot of an American citizen, stealing the precious right to self-government. And every noncitizen (especially if they’re illegal) who casts a ballot negates that right for an American citizen who voted differently.

You want “standing”? Each American should have standing to demand that his or her vote be counted and that all votes cast be legal votes cast by American citizens. To say that allowing illegal immigrants to negate the votes of legal citizens doesn’t harm those citizens is outrageous and idiotic.

The IRLI hasn’t said what it plans to do next, but I hope and pray his case will be appealed, and that the higher court will be run by judges who have some inkling of what the right to vote actually means.
