Perry put some of the Texas National Guard on the border as well as some Texas Rangers.
Texas can only do so much without bankrupting our state.
Our state is doing as much as it can with Texas Taxpayer Money and the Feds whose responsibility it is to do it will not.
There is another problem the Governor has been dealing with as well as our State and that is that the Feds are sending the illegals (rounded up ones) to our state to be housed in our prisons and they are not paying for that either or not enough. That burden is also falling on Texas Taxpayers.
I have a question for those who think Perry is soft on illegal immigration:
Who in the Republican GOP running for office is tough on illegal immigration? And what state is that candidate from?
You southern states keep putting all that compassion into your elected. When YOU guys support defending the southern border the way Mexico defends its own? I'll send you money out of my pocket. In the meantime, quit being a gateway for the illegals popping up in my state now..thanks a lot for that.
Do you want your 10th Amendment or not?
Her name is Sarah and she’s from Alaska.
Perry won't tell us what he would do about illegal immigration. Except "secure the border," which is the same thing GW Bush, Janet Napolitano, John McCain said.... in fact I can't think of any of them who don't claim they will "secure the border," even radical Hispanic congresscrooks.
