If the Federal public servants aren’t cut out to do the job, they should just shut up, get the hell out of the way and let the states do it. Maybe the Feds could change a few crappy, illegal alien diapers or something.

Well they won’t get out of the way, but it looks like the Texas Gov and AG are working on stopping Obama’s onslaught of invading hordes of criminal insurgent invaders.

A cover for cartel members and terrorists to have an easier time slipping in. Cartel members with the American murdering arms that Holder gave them

Damned straight!!!!

So I have posed these conversations over the last week:

What is an acceptable number of American deaths as we pursue this supposed humanitarian crisis?

How much property damage of Americans is acceptable to you?

Is there a minimum number of rapes that is quota driven or should they be unlimited in the pursuit of compassion?

You support the Sierra Club and environmental causes. Is laying human excrement and leaving rotting corpses from illegal aliens acceptable to you or are your causes for special areas other than the Southwest and west?

If there is no limit to the humanity you insist imposing on the rest of us, would you be fully supportive of annexing these countries and making them states, against their will but, for their own good and providing all manner of federal support accorded each American state?

Keep in mind, that all Americans are free to travel to any state unimpeded in any way shape form or fashion.

Greg Abbott is good man. I like him. He addresses questions straight on without beating around the proverbial bush. I think he’ll make a good Governor.

What I’d like to see either one say is something like:

“We, here in Texas, will secure OUR BORDER. We don’t want them here, we want the bad guys to go elsewhere if they want to try to get in.”

In other words, pressure NM and AZ, and then CA to take a stand, and California will be fun to watch.

You can bet your last nickel that the King will order the FEDS to STOP Texas and any other uppity State that tries to secure THEIR border with Mexico. At least 85% of ALL “Controlled Substances” that are not available by prescription come across the Mexican Border into the US.

The Border can NEVER BE CLOSED, to do so would effectively END the War on Drugs, Millions and Millions of Public Employees would be out of a Job. What would they do? All they know is the war on drugs, what about the Banks?? Wells Fargo(Wachovia) Laundered almost $400 BILLION Dollars for the Cartels in just a couple years, there is only $900 BILLION or so Dollars in CIRCULATION. The list is quite lengthy as to what would happen if we were to Actually have REAL BORDER SECURITY.
And what about the Police State we currently live in? It was created by the War on Drugs, do you think the Ruling Class will give that up easy? I doubt many here have thought this through. The absolute devastation to Government at ALL LEVELS would be awesome. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.

California and Free Republic are on the cutting edge fighting this insurrection.

What exactly can the Texas National Guard do?
It’s my understanding that they cannot detain anyone.

True...I was thinking in terms of the Democrats that run that state. If we start to funnel all of these Illegals into California, those leaders may have to find some backbone.

great post i think the retort for “you stole our land” crap is this: you speak spanish? correct yes is the answer. Well it’s not your land you stole it from the original occupants.

They could dredge the Rio Grand so that it is too deep to walk across.

They could build a defensive wall, mote or fence

They can’t detain but they can turn back

In an extreme case, they couldn’t detain but they could shoot dead

Did the Guard get loaded weapons? Did they get the military armament they might need to respond to Mexico intrusions? Or is this another stand down and get killed by cartel fire?

i don’t know the legal stuff but i think if you do smoke and mirrors the socialists governments down under might pull back a bit. maybe show a picture of a dead dog in the desert and put a child’s huggy bear next to it. show lots of the kids crying and then show a whole plane full of them crying cuz their going back to valhalla/guatemala. some scenes of a girl with a cat? just like the movie wag the dog. how about a major tweet or youtube videos of torture mayhem dogs and cats fighting. o the inhumanity.

Spain had control of the land above what is now the Mexico border for a much longer time than Mexicans did.

And the oldest remains found on the North American continent [USA] are those of a Caucasian.

The Indians were excited about finding such old remains, but were pretty mad when they found out it was their predecessor’s bones.

Yeah, I don’t get it either. People will cross the river and surrender to the guard. The guard will turn them over to ICE. Ice will scatter them around the country, so what’s the point?

"Well it’s not your land you stole it from the original occupants."

The Apache and Comanche killed the Mexicans whenever they could - I guess they didn't get the memo about the change of ownership. The Apache had a very high level of contempt for the Mexicans.

Mexico controlled Texas for 16 years. We beat them, paid them for it, then beat them and paid them for it again. I’m not terribly interested in pretending those 16 years trump the following 178 years (or whatever the math is there).

i wasn’t going to post anything about that. but the clovis remains link this continent to europe long before the indians
The controversial Solutrean hypothesis proposed in 1999 by Smithsonian archaeologist Dennis Stanford and colleague Bruce Bradley (Stanford and Bradley 2002), suggests that the Clovis people could have inherited technology from the Solutrean people who lived in southern Europe 21,000–15,000 years ago, and who created the first Stone Age artwork in present-day southern France.[61] The link is suggested by the similarity in technology between the projectile points of the Solutreans and those of the Clovis people. The model envisions these people making the crossing in small watercraft via the edge of the pack ice in the North Atlantic Ocean that then extended to the Atlantic coast of France, using skills similar to those of the modern Inuit people.
never hear this on PBS, FOX or learning channel

That’s why I think this is all just show. What are they gonna do shoot them? If they are just walking across the border and turning themselves in to border patrol they will walk across and turn themselves in to the national guard. They’ll call the border patrol and the same crap that is happening now will still happen. The national guard will just be the middle man.

The drug runners might go somewhere else.

If Arizona and New Mexico do it as well (both have Republican govs) it’d send all the illegals to California.

California being the only place where a wave of illegals bust through...

That’s maximum political pressure.

Genius, actually.

I wish Abbott would have been just a little clearer on the ROEs. Last time NG was down south with us the only armed one was the squad leader and the only weapon he had that was loaded was his service pistol.

I hope he is not proposing to go against the Cartel with only that. I am sure he isn’t because I think he is smarter than that (Perry on the other hand??????).

I do not like the “force multiplier” meme. Was used last time and all NG did was free up BP from office duty so that they could wander the bush more. Helped some but still took a month to train NG the software/office chores and then they rotated out and rinse/repeat. Did not gain much.

Need tough rigid ROEs. Tell the goat herders to keep their heads down....

I like the move, but I think Greta shares my skepticism. These people are trying to get caught. The NG is just going to turn the people they catch over to DHS. I guess that’s better than MS-13 walking right in.

"What exactly can the Texas National Guard do?"

They can drag them back to Mexico, confiscate their boats, and then destroy the boats. This will cause "refugee" camps to be in Mexico, not the US, and cause the people paying the Coyotes, to loose their money.

I agree with your assessment of our loss of freedom because of the war on drugs and you can add the war on terror to that.

But you are wrong when you say that our stolen freedoms cannot be regained, they can and they must be. This is a national problem not just a Texas problem and I for one view the actions Texas is taking as heroic and necessary.

The day is coming when we will all be Texans, or we will be slaves and so will our offspring. One other thing, I have a map that shows the way to Texas and I know how to use it. If the Feds fire on the Texas National Guard, I will unfold it.

Shoot the pesky coyotes, those varmints cause a lot of trouble to ranchers and others. Would scatter the pack.
