Yeah, now we know how to get their attention. Have state governors call up the militia. You know they didn’t want to see that happen.

Of course that doesn’t mean they are going to give in.

Headline on Drudge yesterday quoted Obama as saying that they couldn’t stay. But then you know what Joe Wilson observed about Obama.

Rick Perry should hold an emergency press conference where he expresses deep regret over reports that several border crossers were shot by Texas Rangers and buried deep in the desert, and promise to get to the bottom of it. He can then follow up with additional press releases every other day about reports of other incidents, where migrants are being shot by the dozens.

After a month of this, he can announce quietly that the matter has been investigated, and there was nothing to it, that the reports were false, and nobody was shot. But in the mean-time, the rumor pump South of the border will have been primed, and people will believe that the Americans are shooting people on sight and burying them in the desert.

Get that rumor mill working to our advantage for a change!

These agencies unfortunately could mess up a one car parade. They need to send the military to the border ARMED. They need to get the State Dept thumbs out of their sitters and say to the involved nations causing this organized deliberate invasion you will stop it now or face monetary {no more foreign aid} and possible military responses on your soil. DHS and our military have Drones well use them on something besides monitoring American citizens. Arm them and fire warning shots where invaders are detected crossing our borders. Get serious about protecting our border and stopping this nonsense for once. One month of that would end it.

With who's coming it sounds more like they are going to set up relief {cough cough welcome and disbursement into other communities} stations.

“We came here for the American dream,” 

No you didn’t.

People who come here for the American Dream come through the front door, spend years worrying if they will ever be approved and thousands of dollars.

They also come here never expecting a hand out and have no intention of becoming a burden.

Liars...

“White House sends team”

... of hitmen?

Considering the extremes this evil regime would go to in order to silence opposition, I would not be surprised.

The other rumor I’d like to see would be that the Rio Grande is heavily stocked with piranhas.

“We came here for the American dream,”

Remember all those “Change” signs Obama’s supporters used to hold up? The American dream is what has been changed. It’s now the dream of endless free-government-sh*t.

That’s what these “dreamers” are coming here for.

Wonderful idea. Let’s just go ahead and do it then say we didn’t though. Lots of backhoes available.

They are not coming for the “american dream” they are coming for free $hit and lots of it. They are just common thieves... no need to sugar coat any of it. Thieves and nothing more. Stealing from your pockets and taking the well being of your family from your grasp.

They musta had some real powerful Pogo sticks to jump from their border in one leap to here and not set foot in Mexico.

Mid easterners are migrating to Mexico, learning Spanish, then coming over our border. One of the border town’s tv stations ran a story about what the border patrol is finding there. Prayer rugs, korans, and other trappings of islam. It wasn’t hard to find. I found it on their website. But that news never makes it past the border check points. You never see such news even in the big cities of Texas. The feds have done an outstanding job of keeping information from getting out of the border area.

Ask the truck driver what his destination is. He’ll tell you where the load is going.

If you happen to see one pulling into a truckstop, ask him where the loads are going. I’m curious.

I've always been a strong supporter of Rick Perry, but I'm still mad as h*ll at him for waiting so long to do something about the hordes of illegal aliens flooding over the border into Texas (as per the muzzie's Cloward-Piven strategy plan).

But unless Perry intends to stop them from crossing at all, his efforts are meaningless. If illegal aliens cross and are caught, they will be turned over to the border patrol and it will be business as usual.

Let's just wait and see if he has the backbone to stand up to the muzzie and stop this insanity.

If he doesn't, fellow Texans, you know what to do.


Keep burning up the faxes, emails and phones at the governor’s office and the offices of your representatives!

Demand they stop the massive invasion of illegal aliens into Texas, bringing crime, disease, drugs and unbelievable expense to the state to care for them.

This is sheer insanity!

This was Perry's initial response:

HOUSTON, Texas—Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) appeared on Fox News’ Fox and Friends show and said Texas lacks the resources and manpower to secure the 1,200 mile Texas border... BS!

Other Texas elected officials, speaking on condition of anonymity have told Breitbart Texas that Texas does, in fact, have the resources to conduct not only a surge operation, but a prolonged border control operation that would secure the Texas border with Mexico.

Exactly. Mexico now ran mainly by the drug cartels bribing officials is the enabler or willing HUB for what is happening. The Mexican government could stop it but won't. They have no reason too.

It's time to teach Mexico a lesson and see how a couple years of closed border and no foreign aid works for them. The so called NAFTA trade agreements all of it has been one huge PITA for American citizens and cost American jobs. A previous administration made matters worse by pushing his NAFTA dream and requiring no reform of the part of Mexico as far as enforcing border, controlling it's cartels, dealing with corruption. We got the short end of that stick.

We need a true American POTUS to give us realistic foreign and trade policies who's family or self isn't vested in the USCOC or Arabic states who has been pushing a lot of this mess here in the states.

I'm not an isolationist by any means. But good fences make good neighbors. Mexico right now is our drunken partying thieving neighbor next door.
