The responsibility for securing the border rests exclusively on the federal government. The federal governments failure to secure the border has created an incentive for families to send their children on a dangerous, and sometimes fatal, journey. Until the federal government fulfills its duty, it falls on the State of Texas to address those obligations
Just mobilize your National Guard and do it... this is now an invasion
Cut libtard programs to pay for it
Send Petraeus or Odierno down there now to head it up!!
No, an invasion is an army. These are people, so it's up the civil law of the State to deal with them.
Perry is doing the right thing.
Me too. They lie.
Petraeus is for “immigration reform”, LOL.
1. Used the coast guard to escort them and point them back to Cuba
2. Went to Congress and they gave him the power to empower the state governors, that in case of a mass migration they can "authorize every sheriff, every police department in AZ and TX, to utilize their state police, take custody of these individuals, give them short term assistance, and start loading up their national guard planes and fly them back home...
....none of this turning them loose crap...
....word will circulate within 24 hours...."there ain't no free lunch."
I’m thinking the Perry 2016 committee is hoping, praying, that Obama will oppose this actively and force a very public stand off and feud.
Only in our standardized version of what constitutes 'symmetrical' conflicts. More and more hostilities here and abroad are no longer one army simply pitted against another, as in WW II, but 'asymmetrical' actions utilizing non-conventional means and technically what are called 'non state actors'.
This invasion falls into this latter category.
I agree. But, can't Obama nationalize the guard, call it an emergency, and then order them to stand down and do nothing? Oh, he'd dress it up in rhetoric, but that's how he might respond, because once the States start to ignore him, the jig is up.
So you disagree with Article 4, Section 4?
Section 4 Republican Government
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
Any bets that the feds come in and stop Perry? Obama’s going to start a civil war.
Glad to know I’m not alone. :-)
I don't believe he and holder can
Has this ever happened before anywheres in this country?
And I'm thinking kudos to them if that's true. Bring it on!
Until you give me proof otherwise, I'll continue to consider it an invasion.
US Constitution Section 10 paragraph 3:
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
“... unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
Both conditions apply here.
Sorry, that should be NOT to consider it an invasion.
