TNM Condemns The Supreme Court’s Ruling On Border

The Texas Nationalist Movement condemns the United States Supreme Court for allowing the Biden administration to intentionally collapse the border between Texas and Mexico.

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court granted the Biden administration’s request to vacate the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals injunction in a case regarding barriers being used at the Texas-Mexico border to stop illegals from entering Texas. 

The TNM believes that the federal government has, once again, failed Texas. The Supreme Court made it clear that the federal government will not allow Texas to protect its own borders and its people, further illustrating that the federal government’s respect for state rights is nothing, but a thing of the past. 

The TNM urges Governor Greg Abbott and the legislature to call an immediate special session to explore Texas independence so we may finally protect our border. 

“All three branches of government are working in concert to deny Texas the right as a sovereign state to secure our border. This is an existential threat to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Texas and the fundamental right of self-government of the people of Texas,” said TNM founder Daniel Miller. “As such, this constitutes an emergency, and the response should be immediate and proportionate to the constitutional crisis created by the actions of the Biden administration and the Supreme Court. This is why I urge Governor Abbott to hold a special session to secure the border immediately. The power to determine how Texas is governed does not lie with the federal courts. It is, by right, reserved to the people of Texas. And it’s time to let the people speak.”

In June of 2023, the Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM) launched a petition campaign to force a TEXIT referendum on the 2024 Primary ballot. The Texas Nationalist Movement has recently gathered over 139,000 signatures to take the question of Texas’s independence from the Union to the people. 

The Republican Party rejected those signatures late last year, and the Texas Nationalist Movement is still exploring legal options against the Texas GOP. As the federal government continues to neglect the border, the TNM will work with legislators and activists to call a special session to secure the border immediately.

Dear Governor Abbott,

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States rubberstamped the Biden administration’s intentional collapse of our border with Mexico. Now, all three branches of government are working in concert to deny Texas the right as a sovereign state to secure our border. They are, in practice, more aligned with narco-terrorists cartels than with a member of their own union.

This is an existential threat to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Texas and the fundamental right of self-government of the people of Texas. As such, this constitutes an emergency, and the response should be immediate and proportionate to the constitutional crisis created by the actions of the Biden administration and the Supreme Court.

Article 1 Section 1 of the Texas Constitution is clear on this matter when it states, “…the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.”

Further, Article 1, Section 2 of the Texas Constitution clearly states that the Texan people have an absolute and inalienable right to choose how and by whom they are governed.

“All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit.  The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.”

On December 11, 2023, the Texas Nationalist Movement, in accordance with Sec. 172.088(d) of the Texas Election Code, delivered 139,456 signatures that meet the legal requirements to place the following proposition on the 2024 Republican Party Primary Ballot: “The State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”

But for the actions of the Republican Party of Texas Chairman Matt Rinaldi, in violation of the Texas Election Code, Texans would have an opportunity in March to debate and vote on whether they believe Texas should continue its relationship with a federal government that actively opposed the security of our international border with Mexico.

Planks 33 & 225 of the Republican Party of Texas platform call for the issue of Texas independence to be put to a vote of the people. They state:

“33. State Sovereignty: Pursuant to Article 1, Section 1, of the Texas Constitution, the federal government has impaired our right of local self-government. Therefore, federally mandated legislation that infringes upon the 10th Amendment rights of Texas shall be ignored, opposed, refused, and nullified. Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto.”

“225. Texas Independence: We urge the Texas Legislature to pass a bill in its next session requiring a referendum in the 2023 General Election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”

Therefore, I submit to you the signers of the petition, and we call on you to let the people speak. It is within your power as Governor to call a special session of the Texas Legislature for the purpose of letting Texans answer the question, “Should the State of Texas reassert its status as an independent nation?” 

The power to determine how Texas is governed does not lie with the federal courts. It is, by right, reserved to the people of Texas. It’s time to let the people speak.
