As Grassfire launched its massive "Stop The Invasion" grassroots campaign in 2006, one of Steve Elliott's many media "stops" took him to Neil Cavuto's show.

Neil, ever the gracious host, was a bit shocked that Steve would dare to call what was happening at the border an "invasion" and that citizens across the country would join together to get this "invasion" message out. In fact, many core conservatives opposed use of the "invasion" language.

Fast forward 16 years and Texas governor Greg Abbott began calling the unprecedented mass of illegals crossing the southern border an "invasion." We are sure we'll get no credit for it, but perhaps someone should let Neil know that, thanks to Grassfire, his show was 16 years ahead of its time.
