RICK PERRY: FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS 'NOT GOING TO STOP'
Breitbart ^ | July 3, 2014 | by KRISTIN TATE

Posted on 07/03/2014 4:38:44 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

HOUSTON, Texas--On Thursday Texas Governor Rick Perry spoke at a House Homeland Security Committee field hearing near the Texas-Mexico border, where lawmakers discussed the thousands of illegal immigrants entering the country each day. Perry wasted no time stressing that the migrants--many of whom are minors--must be sent back to their home countries as soon as possible.

"Nobody is doing any of these children the slightest favor by delaying a rapid return to their countries of origin, which in many cases is not Mexico," the governor said. "Allowing them to remain here will only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake the same life-threatening journey. Those who have come must be sent back to demonstrate, in no uncertain terms, that risking their lives to cross Mexico and enter our country simply isn’t worth it."

He mentioned that because Border Patrol agents are stuck taking care of the children in facilities, there are less agents actively patrolling the border. Because of this, Perry said "the border between the U.S. and Mexico is less secure today than anytime in the recent pass."

He continued, "We’re also in danger at the hands of those who might be slipping through from countries with known terrorist ties. With a range of potential threats facing us from abroad, this is not the time to turn our attention elsewhere. ... Secure this border, Mr. President. Finally address this issue, put an adequate number of Border Patrol agents on the ground permanently."

In Perry's view, if action is not taken soon "the flow [of illegal immigrants] is not going to stop."

If Perry can successfully do something to return these kids it would make him an instant favorite for President.

All hat and no cattle. All these border Governors and state officials do is talk and beg Obama to secure the borders.

Get a clue as to what's going on. Friggin' take action, for God's sake.

I hope that’s not a big “if”. He could call out the National Guard, for a start. Hire people to just start building the wall already. It would be cheaper than supporting all these invaders, and the ones who will follow.

It’s time for citizens/militias to take over.

The government and the politicians will do nothing. Any bus loaded with illegals comes within a hundred miles of me, I’m going to be present, and do everything humanly possible to physically stop it.

Operation Wetback was very effective in the 1950s. With today’s far superior technology, a revival of that program would send the criminal invaders back across the Rio Grande. And yes, that includes wily little Pablo. It just takes the will to stop the criminals.

Can't call it "Operation Wetback" in today's politically-correct times.

Operation H20 Lumbar?

What resources are available to him?

Specifically.. what resources? Under which conditions?

Don't know? Never been Governor of Texas?

Then maybe you should get back on the porch and leave things to the dogs that know how to pee standing up.

What would happen if the citizen militia turned out to repel the invaders, a job our government refuses to do?

I agree. Perry is a governor, he has a national guard at his disposal. He needs to protect his state. Doing nothing but yapping is not a solution a real leader would allow.

Back in the day, they were referred to as “wet Mexicans.” Nobody meant any offense to it, it was just a fact.

He won't do anything. Perry is part of the GOPe, I keep telling you folks who think he's the Second Coming.

Also, the TX Governor office is weak and has few powers.

“What would happen if the citizen militia turned out to repel the invaders, a job our government refuses to do?”

Excellent question. Farmers and ranchers have protected their land for eons, what if they got some help from other Texans?

Shouldn't you be hall-monitoring some poor blogger's thread?

All Perry has to do is issue a clarion call to Texans to go secure the border.

So far, all he and Brewer has done is whine and complain that Obama ain't doing his job, like he would anyway.

He (Perry) also could turn out child services to check out the health and well being of those children. Why not use rules and inspections in place for summer camps? Why not something creative like charge those transporting them with human trafficking?

What we want is a governor who can act quickly and resourcefully in the face of fast-moving events. Not one of the 50 has shown any capacity to do so.

Haven't heard of Ranger deployment yet.

The DPS has been called up.

Militia groups are filling some slots as well, and may yet fill more.

I live near Green Bay and there's a huge Hispanic population here.

Do you really think illegals will just be concentrated in the Southwest?

They're flying into South Dakota, for crying out loud.

La Raza Rick is worse than that. As a Karl Marx creation he is just like George W. Bush. And like Bush, Perry has a record of being pro-ILLEGAL alien. He even went as far as to say he "Embraces Vicente Fox's vision of an open border".

Perry can't be trusted nor should he be. He'll say or do anything to become president. After that, it's business as usual pandering to the ILLEGAL hordes just as he has done as governor.

True, the flow is not going to “stop”. However, we can influence whether it is 2 million a year, 500k a year, 5k a year, or the 6 million a year that are likely under Obama’s new push to flood our borders. Good policies can reduce the flow of criminals into our country to a small enough number that it is no longer a manufactured humanitarian crisis or even an economic problem.

From the DPS website:

The Texas Rangers currently coordinate border security operations through six (6) Joint Operations and Intelligence Centers (JOICs) along the Texas-Mexico border and Coastal Bend area of the state.

I’m pretty sure a lot of other Texas resources are on the border including game wardens, drones, helicopters and a lot of DPS troopers like HG said.

MILITIA AND PATRIOTS FORM ‘HUMAN CHAIN’ AT BORDER TO STOP ILLEGALS!
http://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2014/06/28/militia-and-patriots-form-human-chain-at-border-to-stop-illegals/

Militia members and other concerned U.S. citizens are converging on the border town of Laredo, Texas to create a blockade against illegal immigrants crossing into the United States, the organizer of the human chain and protest said on Newsmax TV‘s “MidPoint.”

I don't think so either. But I think we need to do what we can to see he does not get the nomination. Can you see him debating Hillary, the very woman he said was a "Great Secretary of State"?

Unfortunately, I believe Perry truly doesn't see this invasion as dangerous.

I think his we have no heart comment during the GOP debates reveals his true nature.

If some Governor could act strongly and deploy the NG and militia to seal their border they would instantly become a major historical figure.

The very survival of our Republic warrants the return of these criminals illegals and 10s of millions of others.

I keep hearing that the Governor of Texas has very little power and that mostly, they just supervise the executions. I don’t know if it’s true, but I’ve heard that the lieutenant governor has more real power than the governor in Texas.
