Why haven’t these governors gotten together and shipped them to NYC or the Hamptons or Beverly Hills or San Francisco or DC?
Perry admits it’s not going to stop, but does nothing about it.
Buck up Perry and defend your great state.
Can’t governors send the national guard?
Exactly. Those who think “reconquista” stops at the northern edge of the American Southwest are deluding themselves.
Rick Perry: Obama wants the border patrol to be babysitters to the illegal kids. Call out the Texas National Guard and tell them to shoot at the illegals.
These kids are being moved around by and protected by Homeland Security “guards”. What’s the National Guard supposed to do??? Go up against “Armed” Homeland Security Forces??
So it begs the question: what is Rick Perry going to do about it other than stare off into the distance? Asking dear leader to do something about it is like going to the crips and asking them to stop being thugs.
Texas Governor Perry has the authority to call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion.
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.071
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.001
Tex. Const. art. 4, § 7
U.S. Const. art. IV, § 4 mandates the Federal government protect states against Invasion. The Federal government has not performed, States have legal recourse.
There is no reason for Perry to stand by idly when the law supports Texas %100 and the Federals violate law.
Inaction is complicity!
The system is set up that by rejecting a people, no matter what the grounds, those who reject will be made to appear heartless. I say turn the tables.
I see 2000 children at the border who have been “given up” by their parents. They should now be classified as orphaned. Eligible for adoption...by God-fearing conservative families. What an opportunity we have to adoptive future souls for the kingdom, raise them in the fear and admonition of the Lord, train them to be hard working responsible citizens, assimilate them into Americans, and future conservative voting patriots.
The liberals are doing this because they see future voters, and thus a chance to turn red states blue. I say the adoption of these kids into conservative homes would stop the flow very quickly. Just a thought.
The parents are heartless greedy bastards. Send their kids on a treacherous journey where many will suffer and die, with the hopes that Obama will give them amnesty and then the kids can send for the parents to come to America where they can live off the taxpayers.
The governor of Texas is the chief executive of the state and is elected by the citizens every four years. The governor must be at least 30 years old and a resident of Texas for the five years immediately before the election.
The governor makes policy recommendations that lawmakers in both the state House and Senate chambers may sponsor and introduce as bills. The governor also appoints the Secretary of State, as well as members of boards and commissions who oversee the heads of state agencies and departments.
The constitutional and statutory duties of the Governor include:
La Raza Rickie? Please, he’s an open borders idiot.
How about the one that IS on the books: Every state may defend itself against invasion if the Feds won’t.
Perry has repeatedly advocated against a fence...
I’ve read of some cases where the children have departed against their parents’ will.
It wouldn’t be happening if Barack and friends hadn’t arranged for this to be advertised down in El Salvador and similar places. Come to the USA and get a bonanza! The responsibility for “Kidsgate” should be laid at their doorstep.
I would think Perry if he really wanted to stop or slow this invasion would have the Texas National Guard patrol known border crossings as a start and try to prevent further infiltration, flow of illegal immigrants.
The states already have constitutional authorization to do this. They don’t need a by-your-leave from Obama or any other Fed.
“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.”
They’re all over the NYC metro area (including north Jersey); I have honestly met them in Ontario.
They got Canada to take them?
Shoot, why not send them all to Canada then. North, north, north up to Nunavuk.....
Where is Perry in all this???
Where are you people of Texas in all of this???
Are you going to let your governor hide behind his meaningless jargon while your state is used as a conduit to invade other???
“They got Canada to take them? Shoot, why not send them all to Canada then. North, north, north up to Nunavuk...’
No; I met them eight years ago working in Ontario illegally. For all their socialist nonsense, Canada actually attempts to protect their citizens’ jobs from this nonsense.
U.S. Const. art. I, § 10 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.
U.S. Const. amend. X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
All States retain the right to self defense. The Federal government has refused to provide for the common defense, the raison d'etre for the Federal government. The States must repel invasion or the people will.
And I was kidding about Nunavuk. I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy.
Maybe because Canada is so serious about its socialism, it knows the danger.
Put me in charge of the situation with unlimited resources along with immunity and I guarantee it will stop.
Well, they’ve been “actually invaded.”
I do not know what is so hard here.
We can not sit by and allow our country to be invaded while politicians dither and court each other.
It does have to happen under state authorization.
This is a “belling the cat” kind of problem. What timid governor and state legislature will first step up and give the Feds the bird over this issue?
That explains why he does nothing to defend his border.
“Maybe because Canada is so serious about its socialism, it knows the danger.”
Definitely; as Hong Kong was being turned over to Red China, Canada was willing to take in anyone that could come up with I believe $100,000. They didn’t have to pay it to get in; Canada didn’t want them simply setting themselves up on welfare (the way so many of our immigrants do).
They are everywhere. I travel to Florida often. They are all over Naples, Clearwater, Tampa.
You can go into some Wal-Marts around Orlando and you think you are in a third world country -- mostly Spanish spoken.
The reality is there are likely 60-80 million third world anti-American, anti-English illegals.
I fear our Republic may be too far gone.
Why wait for the federal government? Send in the national guard, deputize and arm citizens!
“You can go into some Wal-Marts around Orlando and you think you are in a third world country — mostly Spanish spoken. The reality is there are likely 60-80 million third world anti-American, anti-English illegals.”
I’ve always maintained that the “official figure” was far too low; we have a lot of illegals here in NJ.
“I fear our Republic may be too far gone.”
I don’t see how it recovers, either; without a massive surge in American babies, this is a death spiral for our way of life from even 20 years ago.
I agree. Perry has an opportunity to stand up and fight. The presidency is his for the taking. We are about to see if he has it in him.
Perry does "want" the Presidency.
Remember during the debates he said those of who wanted illegal criminals deported -- We have no heart
Sorry do disappoint you, but there is absolutely no way that Perry will do anything but TALK, TALK, TALK, TALK and TALK.
Perry truly does not have our Founder's love of Liberty for Liberty's sake.
Perry is a weak fool who will gladly stand by and watch our Republic utterly destroyed.
Rick, give’em a sandwich and a bottle of water and send them back!
I feel bad for them but they must go back!
Rick, giveem a sandwich and a bottle of water and send them back!
That’s exactly what needs to happen but the feds aren’t doing that.
I’m not sure how you change that policy but it needs to be amended.
If Perry doesn’t get serious about this invasion, and right quick, then he should be removed from office. Further inaction on his part would be Aid and Comfort to the Enemy.
This perfectly illustrates why the mantra of “immigration reform” is total bullshit.
First we could not send illegals back, now we cannot stop the flow... Yep... Surrender ... Now the border is manned by illegals, your passport is invalid, they are now the ones issuing the visas and citizenships...
Indeed, local Sheriffs are subject to Federal and narco terror jurisdictions. This is completely crazy.
The key is to send them back the minute they cross the border.This is what needs to be done. A fence is not the answer and here is the reason why. If we were to build a fence it would be similar to the Berlin wall, that is how the world would see it. Look what happened when that wall was torn down at behest of RR. We now have a European Union where most countries have lost their sovereignty. If we were to build a fence, in short order the rest of the world would demand we tear down the fence and the outcome would be similar, A North American Union. Nope, no fence, just send them back as soon as they step across.That would be the best message we could send.
What an ignorant and insulting post. WGAF what the world thinks? I sure don't.
I don't want a fence -- I want a 50ft wall completely sealing the border.
Have you seen the wall on Israel's border?
We are being overrun with anti-American, anti-English third world criminals and you are worried about what the world thinks?
You truly don't know just how close we are to forever losing our Republic.
You are either quite young, a GOPe operative, or you are sympathetic with the destruction of our way of life by third-world criminals.
This sentence is beyond ridiculous. What type of reasoning are you employing to come of with this pablum?
You have no idea how wrong you are about how I think about this.World pressure brought down the wall, and so it would also bring down a fence. As I stated, send them all back to their countries immediately as soon as they cross our border, not a bus ride to our cities, a plane ride back to their country. In short order they would quit coming if they knew they were going back. Do you really expect or think any of our future politicians would let a wall or fence stand? Once you draw a line you better be prepared to defend it forever, I don’t see that happening currently or in the near future.
All you would need is another obama or a carter a few years down the road to see that happen.
Or another Gorbachev.
lol! I would expect nothing more from Rick Perry, a man who know wants to be president but also has a long history of being pro-ILLEGAL alien.
