HOUSTON, TexasState Senator Dan Patrick (R-Houston) called on the current leadership of the Texas government to provide emergency funding to secure the Texas/Mexico border. Patrick, who recently won the Republican nomination for Lt. Governor, reiterated Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director Steve McCraws estimate that securing the border will cost Texas approximately $1.3 million per week.
I am calling on the Governor, Lt. Governor, and Speaker of the House to immediately allocate $1.3 million a week in emergency spending for the rest of the year for added border security through Texas law enforcement, Patrick said in a June 17 press release.
In January 2015 the legislature must take up border security as the first priority of the new session, Patrick stated. As Lt Governor, I will insist our budget funds border security at levels recommended by Texas Law enforcement on a 24/7/365 day basis.
The Senator's call for immediate action comes on the heels of the revelations by Breitbart Texas that thousands of unaccompanied children are swarming into Texas and being warehoused by the federal government under inhumane conditions. Over the past few weeks the lack of security along our Texas Border has been exposed for all to see, he said. Thousands of unaccompanied children and teens, along with adults, are swarming into Texas.
Currently, the federal Immigration Statistics Office has increased the estimated number of unaccompanied children projected for this year up from 60,000 to 90,000.

Too bad nothing was done FIVE YEARS ago. Better late than never but the beheaders are already here...
“and protect each of them from invasion.”
Dan Patrick, as was Ted Cruz will be one of the best votes I have ever cast.
Go Dan, proud of ya.
Call out the Texas State guard. Block the border. Check all for papers before they can enter, not legal? Sayanara! ( mixing my languAges)
Here’s an idea: any wire transfer of funds out of Texas destined for south of the border is subjected to a 50% exit tariff. Vehicles and merchandise transported on TX roads entering Mexico accessed at fair market value and taxed 25%. That will help pay for schools and hospital for the services the illegals are stealing, or at least a small part!
The governors of Texas, NM and Arizona need to form some kind of coordinated border security plan. If it creates a confrontation with FedGov, so be it. Constitutional crisis? That’s OK too. Something needs to be done with Leviathan and the guy pulling the levers. Now.
Excellent move by Patrick.
Governor Perry has the authority to call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion. He can do it TODAY. What is he waiting for?

Don't let the door hit’cha in the @$$ Dewhurst, you freakin RINO you.
I heard Gov. Goodhair just this morning say on Fox and Friends the state of Texas can’t afford the needed troops. The state has already beefed-up the border as much as it can and that the request from the Feds for money to further fund state efforts has not been responded to for over two or three years by Lord Obama.

Man oh man, if you ain’t a Texan, get down here as fast as ya can...you’re welcome.
Start building a fence or wall, just as Ariel Sharon did. And ignore all orders to cease and desist...just as Ariel Sharon did!
waiting for the border patrol to walk off the job
“Richard” is silent.
He is running for President don’t you know.
No clean end of this turd for him to pick up.
I’ve been to Israel and seen the wall. It’s been very effective at keeping out the invaders and murderers.
