Skip to comments.RICK PERRY: FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS 'NOT GOING TO STOP'
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 isnt 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, "Were 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."

Call out the militia to defend the borders!!
We have resources that ain’t on the books.
Petition governor Perry to call out the militia! Sovereignty and liberty at stake!!
If Perry can successfully do something to return these kids it would make him an instant favorite for President.
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.
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.
cut off the benefits, including the ones Perry signed into law... and do it as “heartlessly” as possible.
Do something, Rick. If you stop what’s happening at the border, the presidency will be yours. Guaranteed.
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.
Also, the TX Governor office is weak and has few powers.
What’s the matter with Breitbart, using that title to mislead about what Perry has said?
“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.
Perry is right. I respect him for speaking out like this.
I heard that the Texas Rangers are on the border, is that true?
That’s easy to say from Wisconsin.
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'm able to multi-task.
Have you a thread in mind that I should bend my effort toward?
the children the children the children.
So when is anybody going to tell us where all the menfolk ended up?
remember the guys with the Walmart xl through 4xl undies? yeah, those guys.
[cue White House crickets...three, two, one]
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.
So, you’re doing nothing?
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.
Yeah, I'm sure you have multiple tabs up of FR and various adult websites.
He’s not going to be president.
Didn't Perry say weeks ago that he was going to do just that?
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!
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 TVs 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.
Looks like he’s going to need to feel a little gentle persuasion on his backside to actually git ‘er done.
I can’t see him debating anyone. He seems to be a nice man, and even a good man, but he would not be our best prospect for president.
Great point. Perry himself is responsible for ILLEGALs benefiting from their presence here.
Oh, and these cool badass boats.
I'm not an elected official though. Believe me, if I was, I'd simply had done something rather than beg King Obama to do it for me.
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.
I hear you.
I would like to see Cruz or Perry call for a meeting with Mexico’s president since obumer won’t.
