I like obama’s idea - build moats and stock them with alligators - and crocodiles.
Watch Zero call up the Texas Guard for duty in Iraq.
Um, that puts Obama in command of the Texas guard. Is that what you want?

They're just bringing deadly infectious DISEASES!!! YOU DUMMY!!! Plus, they are NOT SUSTAINABLE and they are being used and abused!!! Pay attention! Who's going to pay for all this deliberately illegal activity that is tacitily approved by our lame-braned coyote-in-chief???"
Infectious diseases from people simply visiting here was already a problem. Cases of whooping cough and tuberculosis have increased in the past ten years according to the CDC.
Then there's this alarming letter written by the Florida State Surgeon General:
Florida State Surgeon General Letter to HHS Regarding Unaccompanied Children
Florida Department of Health ^ | July 18, 2014 | Dr. John H. Armstrong
For full impact, or even to verify for yourself that it's an authentic, urgent request, you might want to take a look at the letter still posted as a one page .PDF file on the Florida Department of Health's website.

First priority is to secure our borders, now. Next step will be to maintain them while also applying a strict enforcement of immigration laws already in place. Deportation of people simply over-staying their visitor visas was still occurring within the past ten years. What happened since is just a guess, probably it's partially due to increased illegal border crossings, some political game-playing against ICE and the C-change are country went through when Obama took up residence in the White House.
One step at a time. We cannot afford to look back, we must go forward, but History teaches us all that progress is made one step at a time.
These are young people, just families coming across. They’re not armed. They’re not carrying weapons.
Really? How does he know?
If the BLM can send armed guards to the Bundy ranch over a civil matter then its no big deal to have armed guards at the border.
Obama does it we all pay, Rick does it Texas pays, of course if he doesn't do it Texas still pays, just for other items, related to the invasion.

Yes, it is very frustrating waiting for years for a change. This is just a first step. Though it is a business, never has any State or Local Government functioned as a typical business, or even major corporation. You and I with a whole Army of raging citizens will never change that fact, ever.
Governor Perry is not stupid, nor is he unaware of the many citizens of his State who are fed up. If anyone can change things, it will be Governor Perry who will at least be the first to get the ball rolling in the right direction. And if Governor Perry hasn't already, I know that he can find the means to implement a corporation-type fix which will still seem slow for those who have never worked in government but it will seem lightning quick for those who have worked in government.
Maybe instead of us throwing stones, it's time to instead offer up a prayer for God to give Governor Perry strength and guidance. God Bless Governor Perry.
Added to my prayers.
God save Texas.
God save our nation.
Then Perry has to be strongly encouraged to use all his powers to include the militias, who are willing. Perry must make use of all his sources...what’s he afraid of? He’s taken the first step by calling up the TX Natl Guard...what’s holding him back from calling out the militias to help??? Texas needs all the help it can get, and the militias are willing and waiting for the word. God bless Perry. May he continue to show courage and strength and do the right thing,by taking the next step and calling out the state militia! Say a prayer for Perry...a prayer for him,is a prayer for us all.
They don't NEED to carry weapons - they ARE weapons. Whether you destroy America's resources and infrastructure with a bomb, or with an unceasing massive financial drain (illegals carrying disease, an entitlement mindset, and a proven record of criminality), the result is the same. No difference.
The timing is less than four months before the election, perfect timing for political purposes.....
You stole my thunder. Though my expletive was more on the ‘efffin’ side
I think people are going to be disappointed. Perry himself has said illegals will need to be handed over to the feds.
He can ask, but that will put another FedGov asset in place whose bread is buttered directly by DHS and DoD.
