Rick Perry: 'We Don'T Have The Resources' To Secure Texas Border
BREITBART TEXAS ^ | 17 Jun 2014 | by BOB PRICE

Posted on 06/17/2014 6:55:58 PM PDT by kingattax

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 with Mexico.

The comment sent shock waves through a Texas grassroots discussion thread on Facebook this morning of activists who are seeking a special session call from the Governor to deal with the issue of border security.

get creative. Florida is overrun with gators.

buy several thousand, dig a big ditch, and fill it with em.

if Texas can’t afford that, start an online fundraising drive

“BUY GATORS FOR THE TEXAS BORDER”.

heck, i would start if off with a couple hundred bucks.

If we just enforced penalties against the hiring of illegals and took away all benefits we would not need to secure the border. The incentive to come and stay would disappear.

Three things to consider:

(1) The TX Governor position is weak, Perry holds no real power

(2) There ain't enough Texas Rangers or County Sheriff's deputies to man a 1,200-mile border

(3) If Perry does do something, he will get smacked down by some leftist federal judge or by Holder's corrupt Injustice Dept

Note: I'm not defending Perry, just trying to see the situation from his point of view. If it was me, I'd give the clarion call for armed Texans to man the border in droves.

Start spreading the rumor that the border is a minefield with plenty of warning signs. You don’t even have to actually put them down, just set off a few explosions near most popular routs and plant some blown up cattle near them and let the word get around.

Remember the stand off at the Bundy Ranch. It seems rather obvious that our good Gov doesn’t intend to run for President in 2016. We sure don’t want someone else in the White House who can’t get problems solved.

Gov. Perry would carry a small firearm when he jogged. It was to deal with coyotes, so he said. Preparedness is good.

Too many wealthy Texans exploit illegal aliens for cheap labor. These Texans donate money to the politicians to ensure such exploitation isn’t abolished. Gov.Perry isn’t running for governor again.

Come on, dude; you better be prepared to run for President, but you’re not showing any sense.

There is a Texas solution to this problem, and it doesn’t include doing nothing.

Well, 2 billion was taken from the IRS. There’s the money. Congress should declare this an emergency and send money to Texas.

That will piss off Obama big time.

One of things that has stuck with me ever since I watched the Movie "Patton"

Was when he said "If mountain ranges and oceans can be overcome, then anything built by man can be overcome."

Ditto for this, if can put a Man on the Moon, Build a Small Exploding Sun (Nuclear Bomb) we can keep out a bunch of Illegal immigrants.

What a candy-ass response for a TEXAS Governor! Embarrassing!

Perry would rather Obamaminate the sacred Texas Border that runs against the hostile Nation of Mexico than call up his own National Guard, send his State Attorney General to the Republican-controlled US House to sue the damn US Federal Government for Border expenses reimbursement due to illegal non-enforcement of existing Federal Border Law by lawless Obama and lawless Holder.

Governor Perry could have sewed up Conservative support for his Presidential Campaign, or Speaker of the US House of Representatives, by standing for TEXAS and standing proud against Obama and Holder.

Ponder this Governor Candy-Ass:

“The Governor of a State shall call up the States’ National Guard if He/She declares a State of Emergency.” [TEXAS Manual of Common Sense Law].

Currently, there is no Federal “Dream” Law allowing for the physical invasion of Illegal Alien “Children” Invaders from Mexico - - - only the “Executive Order” edicts of a demented Obama that no State Governor has yet had the courage to challenge.

The failure of the Feds to repel the Illegal Alien Invaders should in no way deter the States bordering Mexico from physically repelling these Illegal Alien Invaders by any means necessary, including Concertina Wire Barriers, Flash-bang and tear gas canisters launched by mortars as far into Mexico as possible by heavily armed, State National Guard Troops.

Federal Border Laws are not being enforced, at the order of a Demented Obama, and thus The States along the Southern Border must enforce the Federal and State Border Laws that Obama chooses to not obey.

Since Obama has no Constitutional basis for his actions, let him try to enforce his lawless “Executive Orders.”

As with the First Civil War:

STATES’ RIGHTS ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
