State Rep. Justin JJ Humphrey, R-Lane, has presented Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor with a proposed lawsuit against the Biden Administration for what he calls an utter failure to protect the nation’s borders.

“Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution plainly outlines that protecting our nation’s border is one of the basic functions of government,” Humphrey said. “Biden’s inept administration is sanctioning millions of undocumented people who are entering our country illegally to overrun our nation. Biden’s dereliction of defending the border has indisputably resulted in an enormous increase in drugs, human trafficking and illegal immigrants harming all U.S. citizens and all Oklahomans.”

The truth is, solid numbers on illegal immigration are almost impossible to come by. The Biden Administration has stopped more people at the Mexico border than any other administration in 90 years. Oklahoma also isn’t even in the top ten states housing illegal immigrants.

Humphrey said that while Oklahoma is engaged in a battle against drugs, human trafficking and illegal immigrants, simultaneously the United States has broken supply chains, food production disruptions, storage and warehouses that are being systematically destroyed, and the depletion of fuel reserves. At the same time, the United States is attempting to recover from COVID.

“These mutual collective acts could conceivably lead a person to conclude that our nation is unknowingly in a state of war,” Humphrey said.
