Texas governor renews calls for
National Guard at U.S.-Mexico border

Reuters, by Jon Herskovitz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/6/2014 5:42:50 AM

Texas Governor Rick Perry and a key U.S. lawmaker renewed Republican calls on Thursday for National Guard troops to be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to help stem a surge of Central American nationals entering the United States illegally. Perry addressed members of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security at a field hearing at McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, the region hardest hit by the thousands of children and families who have streamed to the border in recent months. He said Texas expects to spend an extra $1.3 million a week through the end of the year

If memory serves…..

#2 - Governors have authority to call the Guard up in cases of natural disaster, civil disturbance, etc, which falls under Title 32 (US Code). Defense of an international border, fighting in the ME, or “war” in general requires a presidential call-up under Title 10 (US Code).

Governor Perry could call up the Engineers and have a moat building party. Just a thought.

Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 & Clause 16, of the Constitution, plus Article 2 of the Bill of Rights give the Governor all the authority he needs to put the Guard on the border and send the bill to DC.

How about a Texas militia? The "border crisis" is actually an invasion, why not call it what it is and repel the invaders.

Perry is just puffing his chest, blowing smoke and saying, "Look at me, I can play to the conservative base."

If he really wanted to make an impact, very welcoming facilities with food, showers, clean clothes and basic medical attention would be staged along the border. Then, these invaders would be invited to board nice, air conditioned charter buses for a free ride to the National Mall, DC.

Another option would be to go into "Sheriff Arpaio" mode, build fenced tent cities with very basic facilities, pink underwear and bologna sandwiches. The sheriffs in that part of Texas would have no problem attracting volunteers for posses to round up these illegals or invaders.

But, no, there are cameras to stand in front of and meetings to attend...

Isn´t the National Guard the Governor´s troops? If so why doesn´t Perry just mobilize them and get Arizona to do the same thing. Jerry Brown is such a nit wit he would not go along But at least AZ and TX could protect themselves.

The federal courts have repeatedly ruled that states do not have the authority to enforce federal law, which immigration is. They could detain wetbacks to hold for federal officers, and sometimes do, but if the feds decline to take them, which they also often do, the state can do nothing. Although the offer of a free bus ticket to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue sounds great.

And, unfortunately, south Texas jails are already chock full of "undocumented aliens."

There is the Texas National Guard and Air National Guard, but there´s also the Texas State Guard which is a Federally recognized military entity (think militia) comprised of three components: air, land and maritime.

The Governor needs to stop talking and start acting.

Clean them and feed them, then put them on an aircraft (C-130 most likely) escorted by our own TXANG F-16s and return them to whatever country they came from.

I don´t want them in D.C. The perverts will use them as props a la Saddam Hussein.

If that doesn´t work, then instead of a fence, build a large manufacturing plant along the border. Cheap labor comes in from the South, products come out on the Northern side. Allow any/all manufacturers to use the space.

Maybe I´m missing something but it doesn´t sound like bodies at the border would help. These people aren´t trying to sneak in. We need to stop the flow at the source and find a way to return these children to their home countries. If we had a competent administration we´d spend some of our foreign policy time working on the problems of Central America. We´d secure the border too.

I still believe Governor Perry just does not really know WHAT to do. This is not a temporary problem. The border is NOT going to be closed to these millions that will be going through the next 2 1/2 years. Then, the only way to get some semblance of control is IF (and this is a big if) the next President will immediately begin a real, solid, guarded border. You know, a border like countries with half a brain build to protect their citizens.

If you’re looking for a reason for the supposed impoverishment of Gaza, look no further than the maze of tunnels – some of them miles long — Hamas has built under their territory and beyond their borders into Israel. It’s the jihadist version of Boston’s “Big Dig.” The construction is so extensive that nearly every able-bodied man must have been employed in the occupation of tunnel-building, not to mention the huge diversion of funds, much of it donated by the West, for material like concrete originally trucked into Gaza by the Israelis and others for “humanitarian purposes.” A huge complex is

It was not even a month ago that Vladimir Putin stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the elected leaders of the Western world to commemorate the D-Day invasion. I hope whoever issued that invitation has the decency to feel some embarrassment today. Through the past eight months of escalating Russian violence against Ukraine, too many European governments have treated the Ukraine issue as remote and marginal: regrettable, yes, but not a threat to the peace of the continent. It was more important, they felt, to sustain a normal relationship with Russia. That illusion died yesterday along with the murdered passengers of Malaysia Airlines

I´m pretty confident that if President Barack Obama could reverse one thing about his presidency it would be the Republican wave in 2010. It stalled his agenda, it empowered the right, it prefigured damaging budget fights, it turned a bunch of states into right wing laboratories and allowed Republicans to gerrymander themselves into control of the House for many cycles in a row. The stakes were very large and he and Democrats were not well prepared. Relative to a political disaster of that scale, I agree with Hoover Institution fellow Tod Lindberg, who argued on The New Republic website Wednesday

President Obama styles himself a wit, and some of his best material lately has to do with his abuse of his powers. “As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for doing something,” Obama riffed to a crowd at the Georgetown Waterfront Park in Washington, DC, on July 1, referring to Republicans. “So sue me.” Hilarity ensued. He cracked them up in Austin, Texas, last week. “You hear some of them,” he said, “?‘Sue him.’ ‘Impeach him.’ Really? Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job?” One can only imagine the comedic possibilities in his 9-0

President Obama, obviously looking for a way to help Israelis and Palestinians, can start by setting a long-term goal: Demilitarize Gaza. That’s a better aim than sending Secretary of State John Kerry to the region to work out an Israel-Hamas cease-fire. “Armless in Gaza” has a ring to it. It’s a goal right up Obama’s alley, involving far-sightedness, international diplomacy, disarmament — each one of Obama’s claims to fame. He can call it a followup on the success in removing Syria’s chemical arms. It might even restore some of Washington’s lost respect. Consider: Kerry’s first instinct as Hamas-Israeli violence escalated this week was to

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is still something of a punchline after his disastrous 2012 presidential campaign. As he prepares to run again in 2016, there´s nowhere to go but up. Which is precisely where he appears to be going. In the national spotlight again because of the crisis on the southern border, Perry seems to be working his way into GOP voters´ favor again. Witness two new polls this week. The first poll, from NBC News and Marist College, showed Perry right up there with the frontrunners in Iowa, pulling 7 percent of the vote. He was also the second choice of

But now one of the super PACs that hosted Obama for an event — the House Majority PAC — claims that Obama’s meeting with donors was not technically a fundraiser. According to a pool report from the event, an official with the House Majority PAC disputed the characterization of the meeting as a fundraiser because there were no tickets or cost of admission for donors. “The president is appearing at the event only

Earlier this year, the University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty senate adopted a new Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence, which, according to the campus’s Board of Regents, “places the mission of diversity at the center of institutional life so that it becomes a core organizing principle.” Nothing new under the sun there. But UW economics professor W.

Each new crisis around the world, including the scab scraping problems in Ukraine following this week’s plane downing, seem to demonstrate that foreign policy will be a much bigger factor in the next presidential election than I’d once imagined. Americans will still focus on a host of domestic issues, but it’s impossible to ignore the deteriorating state of affairs around the globe and America’s place on that larger stage. This made it all the more curious to examine Hillary Clinton’s statements about American foreign policy given on, of all places, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Setting jokes aside for

Geography, motive, communications intercepts, and all manner of circumstantial evidence suggest that the likeliest suspect in the horrific deaths of two hundred and ninety-eight people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was the curiously well-armed and well-coördinated military outfit loyal to Moscow in eastern Ukraine. Various government and intelligence officials in Kiev say that they have evidence, including a series of damning tapped conversations among pro-Russian forces, that the separatists shot down the plane, which crashed near Grabovo, a coal-mining town in the Donetsk region.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and Texas Gov.

Huckabee has slightly higher familiarity and net favorability than the other 10 potential Republican candidates tested. These findings are based on Gallup interviewing conducted

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?
