    To The 74th Colorado State Assembly and the Sheriffs of Colorado:

    The U.S. Constitution is a contract between the Federal Government and the states who created it. A vitally important part of this contract is the guarantee from the Federal Government to the states that the states will be protected from invasion1.

    Since January of 2021, the Federal Government has ignored its contractual and constitutional obligations to uphold and enforce its own laws, passed in pursuance of the Constitution, to secure the U.S. borders.2 By doing so, the Federal Government has broken the contract with the states who created it. This is not the result of incompetence or carelessness or negligence; it is the purposeful and deliberate intent of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.

    As a result of its abandonment of the Constitution, the Federal Government has imperiled every state and the people who reside therein. The lives and livelihoods of every American is at risk because of the deliberate actions of the Federal Government to abandon its Constitutional and statutory obligations to protect them from invasion and secure our nation’s borders.

    Because of the imminent and existential threat the Federal Government has created, Texas has begun to exercise its own rights to protect itself from the invasion invited and enabled by the Federal Government. While Texas’ efforts may not solve the problem our government has created, their stance as a state taking action against a malign Federal Government is an example of the powers retained by the states in our founding documents: Every state has a right and a duty to protect itself and its citizens, especially when the Federal Government fails to do so.3

    Our sovereignty is not the sole possession of the Federal Government to abandon or give away; the states and the American people have the right to safeguard themselves and their sovereignty. If the Federal Government obstructs this right of the states and the American people, then it has gone beyond mere breach of contract and presents itself as deleterious to our wellbeing.

    We implore the legislators of Colorado (our elected representatives) and the sheriffs of Colorado (elected to uphold laws and the guardians of our rights) to 1) denounce the harm caused by the Federal Government, 2) pledge support to the state and people of Texas, and 3) provide aid and assistance to Texas and any other state who joins the effort to protect against invasion and secure our sovereignty. It is in the best interests of the people of Colorado to join this effort to ensure our own survival.

    1. Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.” (Emphasis added)
    2. Title 8, Section 1103(a)(5) of the United States Code (8 USC 1103(a)(5)).
    3. Article I, Section 10 of the US Constitution: No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay. (Emphasis added).
