What are they going to do and how?
What are their orders?
Kind of hard to keep something like this action secret. Requires too much coordination, too many people and resources involved and Perry can’t commit to spending this much tax payer money without involvement of others.

Give em hell.
Take care of OUR vets and children first. Hope Perry stands his ground."
Amen, Amy, amen. You and me both - wish I could be there, too.
Our Vets, our children, always first, you're absolutely right!
Agree with you in hoping he stands his ground. As far as I'm concerned,
after this, he moves to the White House for 8 years beginning in 2016.
I do and I think it is because we gave them to much power for 30 years.
Hate to say this but Nancy Reagans BS war on drugs gave rise to the DEA and The DEA gave rise to the cartels.
These guys are viscous now.
LOOK WHAT IS GOING ON
This current invasion is the drug cartels pulling in 2 year old mules
Want the best dope in town?
Ask a DEA ahole or a cop
It’s human nature folks, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

There ya, go 2ndDivisionVet!
Thanks for the links to some of the many, important answers as to WHY this needs to be done!
They will probably be assisting the feds
We are being invaded and America gave them the green light!
This will cost Texas 12 million a month...and I'm sure that Obama is just gleeful at that. Obama's trying to break Perry and Texas. The Dems don't want Perry as a candidate for 2016.
In other words, at this point, Texas got set up. They sure as hell can't stop Homeland Security for escorting this illegals.
They will not be armed.
Washington is giving these people the green light.
God Bless Rick Perry and the state of TX for stemming the flow.
Dunno if we got set up but aint nobody kissin us.
Prolly cause we keep our eyes open LOL
Pres. Obama has been criticized for declining to send Nat’l Guard troops to patrol/guard the increasing mythical land border between U.S.A. Mexico. I thought Nat’l Guard was under control of state governors, who, at their discretion, could accede to a presidential request to place the troops under presidential control.
Pres. GW Bush could not take control of LA Nat’l Guard during the Katrina debacle until the feckless Governor signed the required release. Bush, of course, was faulted.
“This will cost Texas 12 million a month”
I’d say at least 3/4 of the state population would gladly help out and send one dollar to the fund each month. That would cover the costs.
The State of Texas needs to set up a donation box. Funding problem solved.
Do not forget that the Governor is a Federal elected agent.
That 3.7 billion that Obama wants has almost "0" for border security.
Call it what you want....3.7 billion is buying a lot of votes...for the Dems.
