About damned time.
Good news Ping.
1,000 doesn’t seem like much
So glad to hear this news! NOW stand your ground Perry!!
It sure is.
zzzzzzzzzz Perrry........zzzzzzzzz Abbott
Good. I was reading that he was asking Obama to do this and I didn’t understand why as I thought the National Guard was under control of the governors.
My thoughts too.
about a million invaders to late! but better now than never i reckon :/
It’s a lot more than nothing which is where they’re at now.
High five and Amen!
These are young people, just families coming across. They’re not armed. They’re not carrying weapons.
I bet they have some carrying arms, RPG’s, explosives, prayer rugs, and drugs among them.
What say you, Hinojosa?
It’s just a relief to hear that he took the first step.
Hear we go!
Let the bitching about open borders Rick commence. LOL
This is TWICE he has deployed the NG to the border.
It is largly symptomatic because he has no power tpo arm them due to Washington and posse comitatis, but BY GOD! who else is rising up?
........one of you math guys do the math, doesn’t seem like 12 million a month is correct!
These guys/gals don’t get paid much. If each got $3,000 per month, that would be 3 million. Then there is equipment and fuel and food.
12 million still seems high.
Huh? He should have done this from the start!
Time for America to pony up!
