Perry to feds: Send child
immigrants back home

USA Today*, by Rick Jervis

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/3/2014 2:27:25 PM

McALLEN, Texas – Gov. Rick Perry told a U.S. House field hearing Thursday that President Obama should deploy the National Guard to secure the Texas border and should send thousands of undocumented child immigrants back to their home country. He also called on the federal government to reimburse Texas the $500 million that he said the state has spent on securing the border since 2005. "We have been fulfilling a federal responsibility," Perry told the House panel. "The hardworking people of state of Texas shouldn´t be shouldering that cost." More than 50,000 of the youth, mostly from the Central American countries of Guatemala,

Texas should be the first state to secede. I want my name to be first on the list of their immigrants. I will be happy to come in legally.

Remember Elian Gonzalez? The feds ripped him out of his family´s arms with guns pointed at them and sent him back to Fidel, a tyrant.

Beware. The new spin is the children are "refugees" because of civil wars and political instability.

Texas should sue Obama for the billions of dollars spent on hospitals, housing, schooling, law enforcement costs of illegal immigrants. Obama and Holder have said this is a federal problem. Texas needs to be repaid for these federal burdens.

Right, reply 3. "Refugee" is a weasel word. Even in the unlikely case that the border is sealed, leftists hold the trump card to designate all illegals as refugees and grant them asylum.

I thought that the governor could deploy the national guard. Maybe I´m wrong. Perry should put them in trucks and buses and send them back.

Right on #6
A governor is supposed to be the Commander -in -chief of the State National guard. That Governor has the only power to deploy or lend his guard to the Feds.
remember that was the reason President Bush couldn´t get help quick enough during
Katrina -- the Dem gov. refused the deploy in an attempt to create a charge of illegal interference against him.
Grow up Perry and deploy your guard even if it means bring them home from Federal duty.

#6 and #7. I understand the frustration and I share it. But, a state governor has no authority to send anyone home over an international border, nor can he or she deploy the state´s National Guard to enforce an international border without the consent of the feds. Perry is limited in what he can do. He´s sent the DPS, the Guard and the Texas State Guard to do everything these forces are allowed to do. In addition the State of Texas has allocated additional special funding, added to the huge amounts of money the State already allocates each year to border security.

Actually, a governor can unleash the agencies of the state to demand access to ensure these "children" are properly treated, nourished, and safe. If Perry had the nads he´d show up himself with state social workers to see wherever these kids are kept demanding admittance to ensure state child care standards are being met, that humanitarian treatment and safety is the rule.

His Attorney General would be in the courts demanding access to these apparently exploited and abused children. He´d also be suing for the Feds to enforce border laws. He and Perry can demand transparency and begin a state investigation as to the treatment of these children.

None of this will happen. Perry is running for President as the candidate of the pro-Amnesty Republicrat party. Abbott is running to be governor of Texas. How establishment.

Yup, Perry and Abbott can throw tantrums, but if you´ve dealt with a three-year-old, you know tantrums don´t accomplish much. I´m also pretty sure you don´t know exactly what Perry and Abbott are doing that isn´t designed for the newspapers. Both men testified today at the federal hearings being held in McAllen.

Perry and Abbott talk tough but already know what we do. Texas is going to end up paying huge amounts of taxpayer money to house, feed, give free medical care to the CONTINUING numbers that Mexico and the U.S. are helping across the basically nonexistent Texas-Mexican border. I see and hear not one thing from any elected official to give us hope for a fair resolution. Everyone is still walking on eggshells trying not to hurt poor Mexico´s feelings.

Round them up, send them home and pay the consequences later.

I still say that so many people from so many places would not have picked themselves up and traveled so many miles if they hadn´t received ´the signal´ ..in Spanish.

The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat. When ABC’s long-popular daytime program The View returns in September for its 18th season, creator Barbara Walters will no longer have an ownership stake, and longtime executive producer Bill Geddie won’t be at the helm. “He won’t be back,” a person familiar with the inner workings of the show told The Daily Beast, confirming one of the major changes--including the enforced departures of panelists Sherri Shepherd

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters. (The New York Times was scandalized at the time, though I strangely can´t find their editorial calling for Kathleen

Google responds to problems with

NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

A Dose of Common Sense for Detroit

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously
Incompetent Agency In History?

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

   

 



 
Jose Antonio Vargas and
the End of Driver’s Licenses
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:10:05 AM     Post Reply
CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

Flow of Central American immigrants

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
