Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich designates Joe Biden’s migrant flood as an “invasion” of the United States

President Joe Biden has been complicit as illegal immigrants flood America’s borders. That inaction could lead to a drastic response from the Arizona government.

An official opinion issued Monday from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has designated this influx an “invasion,” the Washington Times reported. This would provide a remedy under the U.S. Constitution if the state’s governor concurs.

If Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey were to make the same designation as the Republican attorney general, Arizona would retain the right to “defend itself” according to Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution. This would mean the state could use force and resources that the federal government prohibits otherwise.

“The on-the-ground violence and lawlessness at Arizona’s border caused by cartels and gangs is extensive, well-documented, and persistent,” Brnovich wrote as justification for the opinion. “It can satisfy the definition of ‘actually invaded’ and ‘invasion’ under the U.S. Constitution.”

Biden has overseen record-breaking numbers of migrants crossing the border since he took office last year and has done nothing to stem the tide, Fox News reported. The problem is so severe, some think it must be intentional.

“In their view, this is a success,” a retired senior Border Patrol official told the news outlet. “This is a successful policy decision. I don’t think this is by mistake.” The official remarked that in the past, even former President Barack Obama’s administration would respond to problems at the border once they were “caught.”

Not so with the Biden administration. “What I’m seeing now [under Biden] is something that I have never seen before … The most concerning thing is that [the border policies are] … being done on purpose, in my view,” the official said.

The Biden administration is not interested in correcting the problem while border states like Arizona are being overwhelmed with illegal immigrants. While deeming this an invasion seems like a drastic measure to undertake, it’s understandable that the Grand Canyon State deems this an appropriate and necessary escalation.
