Skip to comments.Gov. Rick Perry Says Texas May Soon Take Steps to Secure the Border — With or Without the Feds
Posted on 07/18/2014 6:00:02 AM PDT by BuckeyeTexan
Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) has been begging the federal government for years to secure Americas southern border. Now, as America faces what some are calling an invasion of illegal aliens, Perry said the time may come that Texas is forced to secure its roughly 1,200 mile border with Mexico with or without the federal governments help.
Weve been able to shut down illegal activities in certain sectors with our different operations that weve had, Perry said on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday. But I think theres a point in time where you say, You know what? This 1,200 mile border has to be secured. And if there is a people and if there is a place that it can happen, it will be Texas.

Gov. Perry says it will be soon and done in a lawful way.
It should be done now by any means necessary.
Will the feds side with the illegals?
Sounds like the parent who say for the hundreth time “I’m not going to say this again”
Should have been done weeks/months ago. I understood that the NG reported to the Governor, unless it was nationalized by the Prez. It would be very interesting if Obama nationalized them and told them to stand down. Total banana republic, obvious treason.
Lawful = with lawyers
Border ping. Gov. Perry is methodically working on a plan for the Guard to fully secure the border. Some Guard already down there.
he he!....TWO can play the “this case won’t get to SCOTUS for a couple of years” game.
Why not get Boehner to sue the illegals?
That’s why I advocate for Perry to send the Texas State Guard, which cannot be nationalized. They are a separate entity from the Texas National Guard.
Tell me more. Is that instead of the typical National Guard setup, or in addition to it? And if so, relative size?
I’m sure it takes time to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s. This administration plays hardball.
It’s TOO LATE to do it in a hurry!
Should have been done long ago.
What do you think the Gov. intends to do? Currently the invaders are wading, swimming,
boating or however across the Rio Grande and walking up to Authorities and turning themselves
in. At that point they get into the deportation process which can take years.
Does the Gov. intend to meet them at the border, turn them around and tell them to cross
back over the Rio Grande? If he takes them in then they just get in line with the
Basically once they cross the mid point of the Rio Grande they are in the US, state of Texas.
I’m not sure what Gov. Perry plans but if he can turn them around immediately that would
certainly be a different approach.
Don’t just say you are going to do it.
It should have been done weeks ago.
I’m sure it does seem like that to you, but you have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes. You don’t know that they’re discussing the legalities, working quietly with the Texas Legislature to allocate money, communicating with border county sheriffs to plan and prioritize ops. There is much you don’t know.
You see what you want.
Anyone who cares can research the Texas border ops we’ve been doing since 2007.
Hey, Pointy Boots-—quit talking about it—and do it!
