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.

I know this leaves it wide open, but what has Rick Perry done to prove he is NOT a "conservative"? This is exactly what happened to GOP nominees in 2012. That worked out swell, didn´t it? BTW, Gov. Perry is the ONLY Governor I have seen stand up to the agitator-in-chief since this nightmare infiltration of OUR country by Illegal "juveniles" began.

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."

Let me clarify the rules, this is what I do fora living. Gov can order call up under state active duty and pay for it with state funds. President orders us under Title 32, USC for National Guard command control or Title 10 which puts under command and control of the Army and air Force.

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.

Islamic militants killed 80 members of Iraq´s Yazidi minority in a northern village, sources told Fox News on Friday. The Kurdish-speaking ethnic and religious group, which numbers in the hundreds of thousands in Iraq, has been persecuted in the north by Islamic State militants, with at least 500 killed prior to Friday´s news, according to Iraq´s human rights minister. The latest killings came just a day after President Obama said U.S. air strikes and humanitarian aid drops on Sinjar mountain, where thousands of Yazidi have been stranded in an Islamic State siege had been ended.

SAN FRANCISCO — This town has long prided itself as “The City That Knows How.” Loaded with justifiable conceit, that catchy tribute gained popular traction following the manner and style—emphasis on style—in which the city rebuilt itself following the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906. Then came Candlestick Park. So much for reputation and cute slogans. Candlestick Park, born in 1960 and scheduled to be executed presently, was an unpleasant, uncomfortable, cold, remote, windblown penitentiary located as far from San Francisco as this city’s mythical 49-square-mile limit permitted. The other version: Candlestick Park was where Willie Mays and Joe Montana turned their sports into

The Reverend Jesse Jackson is, to the surprise of all thinking people, right about something: “A spark has exploded,” he said, referring to the protests and violence in Ferguson, Mo. “When you look at what sparked riots in the Sixties, it has always been some combination of poverty, which was the fuel, and then some oppressive police tactic. It was the same in Newark, in Chicago, in Detroit, in Los Angeles. It’s symptomatic of a national crisis of urban abandonment and repression, seen in Chicago.” A question for the Reverend Jackson: Who has been running the show in Newark, in Chicago,

No one could have seen this coming. In early August, President Barack Obama revealed that he had approved targeted airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The strikes were aimed at both halting the Islamic State’s advance on cities like Erbil and Baghdad, where American diplomatic and military assets were stationed, and to relieve the pressure on Iraqi minority groups targeted by ISIS for extermination or displacement. Some military analysts noted, however, that the president will be unable to achieve the objective of eliminating the ISIS threat, rather than simply disrupting the group’s operational tempo, unless he expanded the theater of operations

It’s a question that’s popped up in my Twitter feed in various forms over the past few days. And as my colleague Mollie Hemingway has already done a fine job of pointing out, many in the media revealed they have only a muddled understanding of gun rights. But let’s go with David Frum’s hypothetical proposition, because it brings to mind a few broader points.

I´ve been getting a lot of email from Democratic fundraisers lately. They seem very worried about November´s elections. First came the highly publicized "Impeachment Red Alert" campaign, in which the Democratic congressional committee warned that Republicans will impeach President Obama if they win control of the House and Senate. Though much ridiculed, the Impeachment Red Alert effort was a big winner, pulling in $2.1 million in small donations in a single weekend. Despite that success, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi´s mood seemed to blacken in subsequent days as she asked for more and more money. The subject line of Pelosi´s next

One of the weirder facts of contemporary life is that “environmentalists” generally prefer wind power to fracking. Unless you suffer from an anti-carbon fetish, there is no comparison, as the Telegraph reports: A wind farm requires 700 times more land to produce the same amount of energy as a fracking site, according to analysis by the energy department’s recently-departed chief scientific advisor. … Prof MacKay said that a shale gas site uses less land and “creates the least visual intrusion”, compared with a wind farm or solar farm capable of producing the equivalent amount of energy over 25 years. This is not surprising.

The military leader of pro-Russian rebels in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, Igor Girkin - known as Strelkov - has resigned. Alexander Borodai, the former PM of the self-declared Donetsk People´s Republic, confirmed the news but denied reports Mr Strelkov had been wounded. There has been heavy shelling both in Donetsk and Luhansk as Ukrainian forces battle the separatists. The news came with a disputed Russian aid convoy stationed near the border. Mr Borodai confirmed Strelkov´s departure to Russian media but gave no reason. He said reports that Strelkov, a Russian citizen, had been injured were "total rubbish". "You probably

Today is the two-year anniversary of President Obama’s first big amnesty edict, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). So far more than half a million illegal immigrants claiming to have arrived here before age 16 have been legalized by the president’s unilateral riff on the Dream Act. Contrary to the story line put forth by activists, and repeated uncritically by most of the media, the DACA decree was not a matter of simply delaying deportations of illegal aliens judged to be low-priority — the administration did that early on by formally exempting the vast majority of the illegal population from the

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit
