Texas governor Rick Perry amplified his criticism of the Obama administration's handling of the ongoing immigration crisis in south Texas Sunday morning, saying that administration officials "either are inept or don't care."
Perry explained that he'd warned the Obama administration two years ago about the increase in unaccompanied minors arriving at the Texas border. The situation unfolding now is a "failure of diplomacy, it is a failure of leadership from the administration in Washington, D.C.," he said.
Perry referenced his 2010 request for National Guard troops to protect the border and allow the Border Patrol to train more agents. He claimed that there are only seven Border Patrol agents a mile in Texas, as opposed to 15 in California.
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate also placed blame on Obama for encouraging immigrants to come to the country without authorization."The president has sent powerful messages time after time by his policies, by nuances, that it is O.K. to come to the United States, and you can come across and you'll be accepted with open arms," said Obama.
Perry also defended the comments he made in June suggesting that the Obama administration might be involved in conspiring to facilitate immigration from Central American countries.
Noting his previous efforts to warn the administration of the growing problem with illegal immigration by families and unaccompanied minors from Central America, Perry explained that "I have to believe that when you do not respond in any way, that you are either inept or you have some ulterior motive."
Call out the Texas National Guard!
If Perry doesn’t do that, I don’t think he has a heart.
Come on Rick say the truth. He is seizing power through a racist revolution with foreigners. He hates America and he wants it to be another place taken over by another people.
There really is no other explanation.
Why does Perry avoid the REAL reason this is happening??
As if "inept" and "don't care" are the only choices.
How about it fits in with his mission to destroy this country. -Tom
One man’s perceived ineptness or incompetence is another man’s agenda.
Neither Rick....are you being naive or just kind to the magic n word. zer0 ispurposely bringing about the repatriation of the former mexican areas for his buddies in LaRaza.
Perry assumes that Obama has the same goals. Obama (or Valerie) are calculating. They know exactly what they are doing. They may miscalculate some of the time, but they slowly inch forward in the fundamental transformation of America.
That is true.
Everything The Won has done since he took office has been dedicated to the destruction of Western Civilization in general and this country in particular.
Say what it is. A deliberate act.
well finally someone gets it right ....Rick is simply being a politician ...he’s a big talker ...all that crap he spews about states rights ..is just a bunch of bunk to hear himself talk... he’s afraid that doing anything that might hurt republicans’ in the election this fall here in Texas ......just another politician, puts his party before his state or his country he can blow his tough guy act out his a$$ for all I care .....big phony
a real patriot would put the guard on the border and if any of the feds got in the way have the sheriff throw them in the county jail ....let them start a constitutional crisis over this ...it’s a damn invasion and no one is doing anything about it ...gutless wonders
“’either are inept or don’t care’ about border crisis”
There is a third choice and more probable choice: “planned and intentional”.
You can’t speak the truth these days because the truth is politically incorrect.
Neither. The plan is being implemented on many levels and the outcome, while still in doubt, is looking grim for the Republican Party and more importantly, the nation.
The Obama administration loves Chaos ,Crime etc ,so it can write more regulations to control the citizens
For Perry, this invasion is nothing more than opportunity for PR. Guess he’s looking to run for president again.
If he really cared about this issue, he’d stop playing up to the media and take action.
