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.
It’s just a relief to hear that he took the first step.
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.
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.
The respective state National Guards are authorized by the Constitution of the United States. As originally drafted, the Constitution recognized the existing state militias, and gave them vital roles to fill: "to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasion." (Article I, Section 8, Clause 15). The Constitution distinguished "militias," which were state entities, from "Troops", which were unlawful for states to maintain without Congressional approval. (Article I, Section 10, Clause 3). Under current law, the respective state National Guards and the State Defense Forces are authorized by Congress to the states and are referred to as "troops." 32 U.S.C. § 109.
Yet the President of the United States is the commander-in-chief of the state militias "when called into the actual Service of the United States." (Article II, Section 2).
The traditional state militias were redefined and recreated as the "organized militia"the National Guard, via the Militia Act of 1903. They were now subject to an increasing amount of federal control, including having arms and accouterments supplied by the central government, federal funding, and numerous closer ties to the Regular Army. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Guard_of_the_United_States#Constitutional_basis
