Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis on Thursday questioned the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops on the border with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration and she promised, if elected, that she will study withdrawing them.

The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov. Rick Perry, and it is expected that in the coming days they will begin to be deployed along the Texas-Mexico border, which stretches some 2,000 kilometers (about 1,240 miles).

"The action I am ordering today will tackle this crisis head-on by multiplying our efforts to combat the cartel activity, human traffickers and individual criminals who threaten the safety of people across Texas and America," Perry said at the time.

Perry, who aspires to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2016, guaranteed that the National Guard will remain on the border at least for the next three months, which is the time that the $36 million in the state budget that can be used to pay for them will last....

Keep criticizing here as a law breaker, a coward, and a full-employment programmer for illegals.

American citizens should really love her comments because it shows that she is a marxist first, not an American.

Has there been any polling data showing Texas Hispanics’ reactions to the issue? Sounds to me like she’s making a pander push for their vote. Many Hispanics seem enamored with the idea of our being overrun by illegals.

Abortion Barbie is not a real and present threat to Texas. Abbott will steamroller her in short order. The Castro brothers of San Antonio are the more dangerous threat looming on the horizon.

#whatelsewendydaviswillpromise should lead with harvesting unicorn turds and making it a liquid abortion cocktail, for all the good it's going to do.

Would love to see someone run with that meme or similar.

Of course she would. I’m just shocked she admitted it.

Yup, First group is getting paperwork and all done this weekend, and heading down to Austin to start moving down. Should be in the area within a week.

I wonder who are her political handlers.....

I would think placing the NG on the Texas border has an extremely high approval rating from Texans....

They must be GOP Plants or something....

Or she simply could be an idiot....

I think Greg Abbott is going to have something to say about that Wendy.
