What the anti-Perry people don’t tell you is the rest of the story, that Perry wants “boots on the ground”, National Guard troops on the border, because that is more effective than a fence.

What the anti-Perry people WILL tell you is that he also OPPOSES ARIZONA’S IMMIGRATION LAW.

How are unarmed National Guard troops more effective than a border fence? I’m retired from the National Guard, I’ve been deployed and pulled guard duty. This is typical RINO BS.

I’m sick and tired of politicians ceding US territory to a bunch of corrupt Mexican narco-terrorist-groups.

He's the governor. Has he used his authority to call up the National Guard and put them on the border?

Got a link for that? Because I pray you are correct.

I like Perry just fine and have defended him often, but I just disagree with him here and he seems a little weak to me when it comes to securing the border.

There is no reason we can't build a border fence. The only thing really stopping it is bogus law suits and a complete lack of will.

Great, he's for boots on the ground, but I am suspicious that anyone who doesn't want a fence won't be serious about the boots on the ground piece either when it comes time to walk the walk.

The anti-Perry folks spit out a lot of stuff that doesn't concern me. His flubs over Gardasil and the TTC don't bother me too much, but being weak on securing the border does.

If we had the will securing the border would not be very difficult and everyone in the world knows it. Build the fence, put large numbers of National Guard on the border, and train up 25,000 more border police. Problem solved. We need all of the above.

This is coming from someone that likes Perry and defends him constantly. He needs to assure people like me that the status quo on the border will change.

Seems to me that would be the 2nd part of his sentence when condemning the border fence, if there was any truth to it...
