Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, will release a memoir on April 6, the Associated Press reported.

The book will be titled “Beautiful Things” and will focus on his struggles with substance abuse, according to Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. 

President Biden and first lady Jill Biden released a statement Thursday saying, “We admire our son Hunter’s strength and courage to talk openly about his addiction so that others might see themselves in his journey and find hope.”

The book has acquired praise form many well-known authors, including Stephen King.

“In his harrowing and compulsively readable memoir, Hunter Biden proves again that anybody — even the son of a United States President — can take a ride on the pink horse down nightmare alley,” King writes in his blurb. “Biden remembers it all and tells it all with a bravery that is both heartbreaking and quite gorgeous. He starts with a question: Where’s Hunter? The answer is he’s in this book, the good, the bad, and the beautiful.”

In a preview released by Gallery, Biden writes, “I come from a family forged by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love.”

Hunter Biden is the President Biden’s only living son. His son, Beau Biden, died of brain cancer in 2015.

The AP notes that the book title, “Beautiful Things” refers to an expression Hunter and Beau would use with each other after Beau’s diagnosis, meant to emphasize what was important in life.

Texas Counties Declare ‘Invasion’ as Border Crisis Escalates

Published

Several Texas counties have declared a border “invasion” and are hoping governor Greg Abbott will follow in their path and issue a similar declaration for the state.

“We’re being invaded. The facts are there,” said Kinney County Judge Tully Shahan at a press conference in Brackettville, Texas. “This is real. We want America to know this is real. America doesn’t know what’s happening here.”

The New York Post reports that the counties were contacted by Ken Cuccinelli, a former Trump Department of Homeland Security official, “who has talked them into believing they can use the ‘self-help provision of the Constitution to declare an invasion.”

“This gives the governor, decided similarly, the authority to repeal that invasion,” Cuccinelli said at the press conference Tuesday. County officials from Kinney, Goliad, Terrell and Uvalde Counties criticized the Biden Administration’s “open border policy.”

The Post writes “Cuccinelli claims now that the Kinney County Attorney, a legal authority has declared an invasion, Gov. Greg Abbott can “repeal” immigrants. He envisions a Title 42-style program, where immigrants– even those seeking asylum– are automatically deported if they cross into the Texas border.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has resisted calls by the same group, the Center for Renewing America, to declare an “invasion,” in the past, according to the Texas Tribune. The group has been known to reach out to states across the country “looking for any local government that would be4 willing to go along with it, the spokeswoman for the organization told The Post.”

While officials know declaring an invasion does not grant any legal authority, they hope it will at least bring attention to the border crisis. The Post reports of the press conference Tuesday:

The officials each shared stories of how their communities are being inundated by immigrants as humans and drugs are smuggled through their small towns on a daily basis.

The number of reported migrant encounters along the US-Mexico border once again made history in May — hitting a staggering 239,416 encounters, according to the latest available monthly Customs and Border Patrol statistics.
