“At some point I expect the federal government will respect this constitutional requirement to protect the border and reimburse us for the expense.”

"Activating NG to the border, I believe."

If true, it's a shame he didn't take that initiative some time ago. Worse yet, that other southern border governors aren't following suit.

Where are the FOX News Network’s “Fair and Balanced,” on-the-ground, Live and in Color, News Reports on the horrific, violent events in the Central American Countries that the hordes of Illegal Obama Wetback “Children” are escaping from with only the ‘clothes on their backs?’

Certainly, ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD, the human trafficking of “children” across international borders would have been an irresistible magnet for journalists to reveal the facts of such horrific abuse of children especially to the most pity-filled Liberals.

Did I miss this famous “Fair and Balanced” reporting on Gretchen’s “Real Story,” Shep, Neal, “The Five,” Bret, Greta, Billy O’, Pretty-Face Kelly, or Hannity?

Where is the “We Report, you decide” documentation by FOX News Network?

Surely there was an hour-long “Special on the Famous 2014 Central American War on Children” that I somehow missed?

The pity-filled Liberals would have cried all hour as the FOX Journalist interviewed victimized family after victimized family - - - a sure way to boost ratings, among pity-filled Liberals.

Why is FOX’s CEO Roger Ailes helping Obama hide this horrific REALITY side of the story?”

It is one thing for the Democrat’s Left Stream Media to swallow the con-artist words of Jarrett, Holden, Reid and Obama, but quite another for FOX News Network not even trying to be “Fair” OR “Balanced!

I don’t think Perry expected to let the cat out of the bag, that this NG border mission is going to cost 12 million a month, but the NG General told the tale, Perry said he expects the Fed Gov’t, will reimburse those funds...

I’d be surprised to see Texas get one penny from the Feds.

The owner of Fox is pro-amnesty. Did you not know that?

He met personally with Valerie Jarret to discuss passing amnesty a few weeks back. Google it.

Agreed. Better late than never, but it would be nice to see conservative pols actually making these decisions and standing by them early in the process, like a real leader would. Window dressing, I presume, in this instance.

Rick Perry requests deployment of 1,000 guardsmen to U.S. border

Republican Gov. Rick Perry on Monday requested the immediate deployment of as
many as 1,000 service members from the Texas National Guard to assist with security at
the U.S.-Mexico border.

The service members, from both the Texas National Guard and State Guard, will mobilize
throughout the next 30 days to carry out “Operation Strong Safety” along the border region.

The guardsmen will work alongside law enforcement officials to ensure the safety of all
Texans, who have already invested half a billion dollars to border security, Perry said.
They will also help combat Mexican drug cartels and deter other individuals from
entering the United States.

The other red states should send $$$ to TX to keep our NG on this border. Other border states should join and do this too. Individual patriots in this country will send $$$ if we have to. This cr## must stop.

GLENN BECK: 'PUSSES' DON'T WANT TO HAND OUT SOCCER BALLS TO ILLEGAL ALIENS

Beck also suggested those who did not go to the border with him like Cruz were also "pusses."

"You know who is not a giant puss?" Beck asked, before answering, "Ted Cruz." He said Cruz called him on Thursday afternoon and said, "I'm coming."

Beck made his remarks days after he told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that he never intended to throw conservatives who are opposed to his efforts under the bus during his initial announcement. Beck also said that even if his actions lure more illegal immigrant children to make the harrowing journey to America and be exploited and harmed, that is not his "intent."

Texas should require its citizens to send all their Federal tax payments to a state-level clearing house. After deducting the cost of border security as well as several billions in other un-funded mandates, send a bill for the remainder owed to Texas by FedGov.

We are watching a historical event! The first politician in many years TO ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT A PROBLEM!

Sure, Rick Perry isn’t a “gilded tongued devil” but regardless as to how he talks....he speaks the truth and actually follows up on it. I was for him the last presidential cycle but the people thought he was a “HICK” due to the way he talked. He may not have spoken like a polished liar but he certainly had the clarity of thought of a masterful and true patriot and leader.

Since King Obama has been in office, name a single thing that he has done to protect our way of life and laws as written. You can’t! As a matter of fact, name anyone has actually “laid it all on the table” and physically done ANYTHING of substance? Crickets..........

THANK GOD FOR TEXAS AND THANK GOD FOR RICK PERRY!

************

I can’t answer that question. My guess is there is a procedure of notification, etc
that has to be followed. Two types of call outs Title 32 and Title 10. I’m assuming it
will be under Title 32 which isn’t Federal call out.

..The Governor can activate National Guard personnel to “State Active Duty” in
response to natural or man-made disasters or Homeland Defense missions. State
Active Duty is based on State statute and policy as well as State funds. Soldiers and
Airmen remain under the command and control of the Governor. The federal Posse
Comitatus Act (PCA) does not apply under state active duty status or Title 32 status...

Read here and see what you make of it:

Thanks; I read it as only allowing “State Active Duty” without Federal approval. Both Title 10 and Title 32 required SECDEF or Presidential approval as I read it.
