O: Children in some countries have it horrible.

[Sorry. But WE can’t adopt them all.]

Now, he is back to rambling about those who have been here for years, paying a fine, going to the back of the line, frees up a huge amount of resources...

I heard Cruz on Levin's show the other day. For the first time ever, I was extremely disappointed in what he had to say -- quite disheartening.

He didn't express any sense of the imminent destruction our Republic faces if we don't stop this illegal invasion.

Cruz repeated used the term "children" and other language the left uses to co-opt the issue.

Cruz left me feeling as though the border issue isn't a pressing matter.

Me too! If only the POTUS can call out the National Guard, how are states to defend themselves?

... Oh ..... wait ..... that never happened.

IIRC, governors can call up the NG in their own states only.

The Prez can call up NG from one state and re-alocate them to another state, as he sees fit — with approval of governors, probably.

I remember during Katrina when the press was all over Bush for not sending in the National Guard ... and Bush said he was waiting for a call from the governor.

LOL! Guess I missed hearing that. The only affiliates which
carried it in my area were CBS and NBC and I think they cut it off early.

His claim that he and Governor Perry weren't that far apart was weird.

I get a kick out of how Obama is so adamant about needing the billions of dollars to secure our same borders that he insisted were absolutely secure in 2012.

These “children” are predominantly male and over 14. It is one reason why Obama doesn’t want photos or interviews. Any visits must be scheduled and approved.

It’s my understanding the governor can call up the Texas State Guard and or the Texas State militia.

The clown is all about changing this country just like he said before he got elected

Just got back from seeing the "America" D'Souze movie.....that quote about 'fundamentally change Amerika" got good play.

For what it's worth, for a noon matinee on a 110 degree day, there was good attendance - and applause at the wrap.

There were like 60,000 “minors” out of about 300,000 who crossed. The adults are not showing up for their hearings either. There are probably going to be millions more coming this year and next. Border is wide open for them.

Federal Activation

Under the 1933 National Guard Mobilization Act, the president could only activate the Guard following an emergency declaration by Congress, but the Armed Forces Reserve Act of 1952 removed that requirement, allowing the president to activate the Guard with the consent of the governor. Generally, federalized Guard units serve in combat zones and overseas disaster relief missions. When federalized, Guard members fall under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and may receive medical benefits under TRICARE, the military’s health insurance program.

State Activation

To maintain a Guard unit, state constitutions must authorize them. While the exact procedures vary, state governors have the power to activate their state’s guard units, and members operate under the state’s National Guard regulations. Generally, governors use Guard units to assist in disaster relief, but in 2010 the governor of Puerto Rico activated the Guard to assist law enforcement with a crime wave on the island

The most important part to remember is that Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution states:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

It is the first responsibility of the federal government, not the states, to protect the states borders. In the event they don’t the states and the citizen act to protect themselves.

Obama is refusing to do his job in respect to this situation (and many many others)

see my later post regarding the NG
He said that Perry asked to send the NG and he said “I am being sued by Boehner for acting on my own, pass the supplemental $3.7 and we can talk about the next steps. Talk to your Republicans”

Forget Cruz.

This is Perry’s big chance to go for the Republican nomination.

If he stands tall and stands tough and sends his State Troopers and Texas Rangers to the border, he will gain a HUGE following!

Obummer must have constitutional dyslexia. He thinks he can unilaterally change laws, but he can’t call out the NG.

He is a petulant little child who needs to have his allowance halted until he learns to do his chores. Don’t fund his “plan”.

Yes, a governor can call up his own national guard. But, when it isn’t a federal call up, then the Fed doesn’t pay their costs (pay, benefits, operational costs, etc)...the state pays. That gets expensive very fast.

And, if the president doesn’t like it, then he can call them up and use them as he sees fit instead of as intended by that governor ...(but he pays).

There is no doubt that Perry wants the 2016 GOP node. All actions he will undertake on this border invasion will be political and not to preserve our Republic.

If he stands tall and stands tough and sends his State Troopers and Texas Rangers to the border, he will gain a HUGE following!

He would indeed walk into the Presidency. However, sorry to disappoint you, but Perry will never take bold and decisive action to defend our Republic against this criminal invasion.

Not withstanding the black-robed tyrants decisions, the States do have the Constitutional right to order of citizen's militias and use the necessary force to completely seal our border from Invasion

This evil illegal invasion by third world anti-American criminals has the sole purpose of destroying our Republic as founded.

If this invasion is not stopped out Republic will be turned into a decaying spanish speaking third world sewer.
