The Republican Party of Texas has declared an invasion at the southern border. Its chair, Matt Rinaldi, is calling on Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, and on all Texas counties to do the same.
Nine counties and one mayor already have declared an invasion, with more expected to follow in Texas’ 254 counties.
Two judges who declared an invasion, life-long Democrats and Hispanic women, are now running for reelection as Republicans in November.
“Arizona will declare an invasion in January, Texas should today,” Rinaldi wrote in a column published by Newsweek. He’s referring to Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who after she won her party’s nomination vowed to declare an invasion. Rinaldi, who thinks Lake will be elected as Arizona’s next governor, has called on Abbott to declare an invasion.
