As Trump Era Immigration Rule Expires Next Month, Voters Pick Human Trafficking as Worst Outcome of Failure to Secure Southern Border


As Trump Era Immigration Rule Expires Next Month, Voters Pick Human Trafficking as Worst Outcome of Failure to Secure Southern Border

HOW MANY MORE? Rally in Austin, TX on April 29th to Push for Passage of HB 20 Before Major Trump Era Title 42 Rule Expires in May—Legislation Would Empower Texas to Create a State-Based Border Protection Unit, Repel the Invasion, and End the Humanitarian Crisis

Illegal Border Crossers and Asylum Seekers Released Into U.S. Without Review Also Top Concern

(Austin, TX—April 24, 2023) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted April 11th through April 14th of over 1,000 likely general election voters.
“Migrant women are raped by cartel members as part of their price for being smuggled across U.S. border, while 60% of unaccompanied alien children are caught by cartels and exploited through child pornography and drug trafficking.” said Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States and organizer of the upcoming HOW MANY MORE? Rally in Austin, TX. “Add to that the 6 million illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. in the last 3 years and you have the definition of a humanitarian crisis. Yet Washington D.C. refuses to acknowledge this crisis. Now, with the federal government being derelict in its duty, states like Texas are taking the lead to address this crisis and secure our southern border.”

Mark Meckler is one of the organizers of the event, where he’ll be joined by  Ted Nugent, Congressman Chip Roy, Lara Logan, and real-life victims and subject matter experts of the ongoing border crisis at the upcoming HOW MANY MORE? Rally on April 29th at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, TX. The rally is highlighting the unfolding crisis at the U.S. southern border with the dangerous influx of drugs like Fentanyl into the U.S., human trafficking, and the national security threat posed by drug cartels and international terrorist organizations.

 About Convention of States Action—Boasting a grassroots network of over 5 million supporters and volunteers, Convention of States’ mission is to restore a culture of self-governance in America and to curtail federal overreach. Its primary focus in accomplishing this mission is using a limited Article V Convention to propose constitutional amendments that impose limitations on the size and scope of the federal government, including a balanced budget requirement and term limits for federal officials.

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
