Shelby Park Showdown Update (Jan. 25, 2024)

On Jan. 23, 2024 DHS sent this letter to TX A.G. Paxton.

On Jan. 24, 2024 TX Gov. Abbott replied here.

Federal courts expert Prof. Steve Vladeck posted this on Twitter (a.k.a. "X"): "Article I, Section 10, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution prevents states from doing exactly what Abbott is proposing (responding to claimed invasions on their own) “without the consent of Congress.”  By this logic, states could use their own determination that an "invasion" exists as a justification for usurping control of whichever federal policies they don't like. Whatever you think about current immigration policy, this is just a 21st-century re-packaging of nullification."
