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?
Assuming you meant "symbolic" instead of symptomatic, well someone has to do something and other than Jim Robinson and protesters at various locations around the USA, you're right in saying "who else is rising up?"
I believe most TX NG units are infantry. It would be nice if we had a little more firepower to send down there. They need a bunch of fast Zodiac boats, quadrunners, drones and other air assets to turn keep people from crossing the river or to return them immediately to the other side if they do manage to make it across.
Posse Comitatus shouldn't apply because the National Guard wouldn't be deployed to provide internal policing, but rather to repel foreign invaders, which is precisely why the military exists.
I am sick of the armchair experts bashing Perry! He is right out front, he is DOING SOMETHING. Where are the other govenors??? I say send the illegals all to Maryland...right near DC! Oh, and san francisco!!!How about Detroit and chicago??
BTW, chicago and Detroit had more murders on one weekend than Hondorous had the whole year.
Correct. Perry doesn't rise to the level of "wacko-bird" that Cruz has achieved, but he's light years better than a Romney / McLame, et al...
does not apply to NG deployed under the control of a state governor.
