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.

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.

When TV Determines Guilt or Innocence

I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal-justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Mo., shooting. One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess. It is amazing how many otherwise sane people want Israel to become the first nation in

Obama’s War in Iraq Marks the

Barack Obama has spent most of his presidency trying to narrow Bush’s war on terror. But with the new campaign in Iraq, the big war is back. There was a time not so long ago when the White House said al Qaeda was on its heels, the tide of war was receding, and the U.S. was turning its attention to Asia. It was a happier time in terms of foreign policy. America would lead from behind and not do stupid s**t, even if that meant staying on the sidelines as Syria and, later, Iraq imploded. Then along came the Islamic State of

In the beginning of the war, Southern women wanted their men to leave — in droves, and as quickly as possible. They were the Confederate Army’s most persuasive and effective recruitment officers, shaming anyone who shirked his duty to fight. A young English immigrant in Arkansas enlisted after being accosted at a recruitment meeting. “If every man did not hasten to battle, they vowed they would themselves rush out and meet the Yankee vandals,” he wrote of Southern women. “In a land where women are worshipped by men, such language made them war-mad.” Newspapers printed gender-bending cartoons that drove the point

FERGUSON, Mo. — On one corner of a battered stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the epicenter of ongoing protests, young men pull dark scarves up over their mouths and lob molotov cocktails at police from behind makeshift barricades built of bricks and wood planks. They call the gasoline-filled bottles “poor man’s bombs.” The young men yell expletives and, with a rebel’s bravado, speak about securing justice for Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer, “by any means necessary.” They are known here as “the militants” — a faction inhabiting the hard-core end of

Oh, the irony. Or should I say, flat-out hypocrisy? Numerous reports have revealed that top Democratic 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is living a lavish, over-the-top affluent lifestyle befitting — you guessed it — a mean old One-Percenter. She and her fellow Democrats pretend they’re the party of the poor, the “hammered” middle class — the 99 percent. Well sorry, Hillary, but average Americans don’t vacation in the Hamptons in $18 million homes, fly private jets, get paid more than $200,000 a pop for speeches or stay in presidential suites while traveling. The Clintons have raked in more than $100 million over the

Obama’s teetering presidency

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with

Two states. Two ethics panels. Two governors facing heat from prosecutors. Yet of the two, it is the one who wasn’t indicted who might have committed the more troubling offense. In Texas, Gov. Rick Perry was charged Friday with abuse of power — essentially, exercising his constitutional right to veto legislation. Perry had nixed funding for a county public-integrity unit after the local DA who heads it was busted for driving drunk (her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the limit). The DA also abused the arresting officer. Perry refused to fund the unit unless the DA quit. Anyone who broke the law and

Over the weekend, liberal and conservative commentators achieved rare bipartisan consensus in condemning the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry as “unbelievably ridiculous,” legally thin, and potentially unconstitutional. Perry is accused of threatening to veto and then actually vetoing funding for the Travis County district attorney’s office, unless it got rid of its district attorney, who—in an embarrassing incident—pleaded guilty to drunk driving and arguably got off too easily. (Snip)But we need to look very skeptically on indictments where the main allegation is that the politician engaged in perfectly legal hardball politics.

National Democrats knew long ago that 2014´s political landscape in Montana was not going to be favorable to even a relatively conservative Democrat. Fully aware that former Sen. Max Baucus faced an uphill battle in any bid for reelection, he was removed from the electoral equation when President Barack Obama appointed him America’s next ambassador to China. The state’s Democratic governor appointed John Walsh, a figure many believed would be a more electable candidate, to serve as Baucus’s replacement. (snip) State Rep.

When I heard that Texas Governor Rick Perry had been indicted, I thought, “This had better be good, or it will backfire on the Democrats.” It turns out it isn’t good and it may well backfire on the Democrats. A Travis County grand jury has indicted the Texas governor and former and possible future candidate for the Republican presidential nomination for allegedly abusing his power, by threatening to cut off funding for the public integrity unit in the office of a Democratic County District Attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, following her drunk driving arrest. The two charges against Perry are serious enough in their

AN INDICTMENT is a bit of a buzz-kill. On Friday, Rick Perry joined Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell in the brotherhood of highly ranked Republicans who can personally testify to this, among other things. In Mr Perry’s case, the charges are coercion and abuse of official capacity. Those are serious criminal matters; if convicted of the latter, a felony, he could face up to 99 years in prison. At first the indictments seemed like a real blow. Mr Perry is planning to step down as governor of Texas next year, after 14 years on the job. He is widely thought to

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder.

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip.

Ousted “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory was paid $4 million to leave NBC and signed a contract not to speak out against the network, sources told Page Six. Gregory, 43, who moderated the show for six years, was unceremoniously dumped from the political program on Thursday after dismal ratings and months of speculation about his departure. He has been replaced by NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd. A source said Gregory’s contract extended into next year, so NBC had to pay him for the rest of the term, plus an extra fee to ensure his silence. In return, he was asked to sign
