AUSTIN Texas top three lawmakers agreed Wednesday to spend tens of millions dollars to fund a surge operation along the border to deal with the influx of Central American children pouring into Texas.
Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus authorized a deal for emergency funding of $1.3 million per week for DPS surge operations that will run through at the least the end of the year.
Texas cant afford to wait for Washington to act on this crisis and we will not sit idly by while the safety and security of our citizens are threatened, Perry said in a statement.

Good for Texas!
Then they should sue the FEDS for the money
Texas really should increase the price of oil and gas to the north and the east and west coasts to reimburse this cost to our state. Call it the “Squatters Tax” that states who think squatters ought to be here can pay.
How are they going to keep the Feds from busing them in and dropping them off in Texas?
Obama is petty enough and he’ll make sure Texas suffers for their disobedience.
I saw Dewhurst on FOX this morning saying that they are required by law to turn the border crossers over to ICE and the Border control. The illegals have been running into the arms of border control as it is.
Intentional or not, this will end up facilitating the illegal crossings.
Deduct it from monies that come from Fed or withhold it from future transfers - AND THEN sue them for the cost. Three times.
REMEMBER THE ALAMO!
REMEMBER SAN JACINTO!
Meanwhile, Obama’s DREAMER WAR ON CHILDREN continues at the TEXAS Border with the, once again, very hostile Nation of Mexico
If what Dewhurst said on FOX this morning is true, there are going to be a lot of disappointed FReepers soon.
Oh, poor Dewhurst. Alls he had to do last month was this, and he’d have walked back into that spot he’s been taking up space in
Now he’ll do this for nothing AND his bundlers’ll be pissed at him.
they should all watch ‘Jaws’ on a yearly basis, just to make sure they’re not looking like the mayor, ‘yeah, you know Larry, sign the paper - that’s what you’re good at’...’August!?, Summer’s over, Larry. These people all think you’re the Mayor of Shark City’...
‘I I I I ...uh, I want what’s best for the community’
‘That’s right, Larry, that’s why you’re going to sign this...’
Everyone knows the sleazeballs, now they do. they ought to now just do their jobs.
What did he say?
Turn them around at the border. Failing that, bus them back or bus them to a sanctuary city in another state.
Make the regime take action. Follow no laws - they don't. Avoid having the regime use our own laws against us as weapons when they themselves don't follow them.
Refuse. To. Comply.
What are they gonna do?
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.—Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He said that they are required to turn the illegals they catch over to the Border Patrol and ICE.
The illegals have been happily turning themselves in to the border patrol because they know they get to stay.
Don't follow that law. Just don't. The other side does not follow laws that are inconvenient and the other side knows we will govern ourselves by following laws. They use that against us.
This is very clearly war - stop following their laws. What are they gonna do? Texas is self sufficient.
Repel with force illegal entry attempts.
Exactly, they can’t be allowed to set foot on American soil at all.
“I saw Dewhurst on FOX this morning saying that they are required by law to turn the border crossers over to ICE and the Border control.”
The state could always exercise its 10th Amendment rights and ignore the law just like Obama and Holder are ignoring the laws. Round up the illegals and turn them over directly to the Mexican authorities at the border. Make a huge issue of the fact the federal government is not enforcing the law. Then let the case go to the Federal Courts and see if the judges will rule the states have to obey the law but the federal government does not.
Arizona should join Texas in fighting back against the travesty on the border.
