With British oppression escalating, leaders within Suffolk County, Massachusetts, approved nineteen resolutions. The Resolutions were carried to Philadelphia and endorsed by the Continental Congress.
“… the most sacred obligations are upon us to transmit [this new World]… unfettered by power, unclogged with shackles, to our innocent and beloved offspring. …if we arrest the hand which would ransack our pockets… if we successfully resist that unparalleled usurpation of unconstitutional power… posterity will acknowledge that virtue which preserved them free and happy… Therefore, we have resolved…
2. That it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves and posterity, by all lawful ways and means in our power to maintain, defend and preserve those civil and religious rights and liberties, for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to future generations…
11. … for the honor, defense and security of this county and province, advise… persons, be elected in each town as officers in the militia… and that the inhabitants of those towns and districts, who are qualified, do use their utmost diligence to acquaint themselves with the art of war…
15. … it is incumbent on us to encourage arts [trades] and manufactures amongst us, by all means in our power…
18. … we would heartily recommend to all persons of this community, not to engage in any routs, riots, or licentious attacks upon the properties of any person whatsoever… our conduct shall be such as to merit the approbation of the wise, and the admiration of the brave and free of every age and of every country.” Journals of Congress, September 17, 1774

TEXAS BORDER CRISIS ACTION PLAN PHASE I
As you know, developing the TX Border Crisis Action Plan(Read key points here)was the first phase of the grassroots forcing our State government to pay real attention to the ongoing border crisis on our southern border. In Phase 1, we articulated a plan of action for our State government to follow as a guide and as a starting point in the debate as to what are the solutions needed to secure our border and mitigate the damage that has already been done to Texas (it is estimated by FAIR that Texas will spend an additional $78 M in additional spending this year alone because of UACs).

How have some elected Texas officials responded to this Border Action Plan?
Read State Rep. David Simpson’s Response here…
Statements from State Reps Jonathan Strickland (District 92) and Matt Schaefer (District 6)
Their are several other lawmakers that are sympathetic to the border situation but are waiting to hear back from folks in their districts.
AND NOW WHAT CAN WE DO?
PHASE II OF TEXAS BORDER CRISIS PLAN
TX Grassroots TEA Party Action Plan – Secure the Border: “Power of 5” …
Do you have 5 friends or family members who believe as you do about the open, unsecured border? Do they each have 5 friends or family members who will call elected officials if you give them the information? If so, then you have an influential block of 31 people (including yourself). If everyone will be responsible for his or her own calls + five more people, we CAN save Texas! We the People must make our voices heard.

Grassroots TEA Party Leaders Agree with US Border Patrol Rep
about the Federal Government’s Deadly “Catch and Release” Program
Leaders say, “In spite of political rhetoric, the Texas National Guard’s mission won’t secure the border. Why? Because their orders are to participate in ‘catch and release’.

TEXAS GRASSROOTS BORDER ACTION PLAN
A Plan to Secure the Border with Mexico and Protect the Health, Safety, and Economy of the State of Texas (Co-authored by JoAnn Fleming, GAWTP and Dale Huls, Clear Lake TEA Party). This has been submitted to the Governor asking that he call a Special Session on this crisis.
It is a fairly lengthy read. It spells out exactly what the Federal and State Constitutions require in response to a border Invasion. It explains in plain language, why this Border Invasion is now a State responsibility, and how we should deal with it. It also details the scope and dangers of the invasion and why it is a crisis from security and financial perspectives. When you have read it you can make a judgment regarding support.
