Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 21, 2014

Gov. Rick Perry announced on Monday his intent to deploy up to 1,000 members of the Texas National Guard to the Rio Grande Valley to help the state's Department of Public Safety. The troops will join the department in its recent surge to combat human smuggling and drug trafficking amid the influx of mostly Central Americans illegally crossing the Rio Grande. State leaders approved funding for extra DPS troopers to fill in gaps in Border Patrol coverage in the Valley as the federal authorities were overwhelmed with an influx of children and families. The state officials feared Mexican drug cartels might exploit the situation to move their own drugs and human contraband.

The National Guard deployment -- added to the DPS surge -- will bring the price tag of troopers on the border to about $5 million per week, the memo said. And the funding source for the effort remains unclear.

"It is not clear where the money will come from in the budget," the memo states, adding that Perry's office has said the money will come from "non critical" areas, such as health care or transportation.

#2: Yeah, he's sounding like a democrat now. That's the first place they go to except maybe fire and police when they want to fund a pet project. This is just a prelude to raising taxes and/or fees. At least that's what history shows us.

So now when the kids arrive at the border there will be more people that they can surrender to. I am glad to know too that these National Guard members don't have regular jobs which will now be sacrificed to the altar of Perry's Presidential aspirations.

Perry would be just as poor a president in 2016 as he would have been in 2016. He's going no place, and appears to make the Texas taxpayer foot the bill for the trip.

I'm aware of that but there are many types of jobs, such as sales, where your commissions are earned on a monthly basis. While you're away serving in the National Guard you aren't earning any commissions. Most such jobs offer a small guaranteed salary but the majority of your income is commissions.

The deployment of 1000 troops will only cost Texas 12 million dollars a month. With 25 million residents that's less than 50 cents per person per month. Perry should deploy 10,000 troops, the cost would only be $2.50 per resident. Texans are always bragging about their robust economy LOL

Illegal immigration is one thing. What's going on now is more than that and has a lot more ramifications. We have a Federal Government that has been criminally negligent on the matter for a couple of decades because neither party wanted to take a hit politically. No longer is it about a father and son coming across to make more money to take care of thier family "back home". Now it's about drugs cartels, human trafficking, more "free stuff" from the U.S. tax payers, and now using children as political pawns.

At least Perry is apparently trying to do something besides fundraising for his party. Albeit, most likely in vain given this administration's track record of preferring to sue States for doing the Federal Gov't job while at the same time refusing to do the #1 job of our Federal Gov't....protecting our borders.

The Governor should have a Call to Arms and have the Texas population come to the border to defend it.

It would be cheaper as everyone would bring their arms and provisions.

If Arizona and New Mexico would do the same, the invasion can begin in California.

Texas border sheriffs slam Perry's ‘political' plan to deploy 1,000 troops as a waste of money

Border sheriffs, who were apparently not consulted about Perry's plan, said that they would have rather he spent the money on additional personnel with the power to actively participate in border operations. In previous deployments to the border, National Guard troops have assisted in administrative duties, and intelligence gathering.

"At this time, a lot of people do things for political reasons," Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio told the Dallas Morning News. "I don't know that it helps."

"I don't know what good they can do," he explained. "You just can't come out here and be a police officer."

Lucio said that border counties needed the state to fund more police, who would be able to directly work with the U.S. Border Patrol.

Texas National Guard Adj. Gen. John Nichols insisted that the troops could be of assistance with their mission of "referring and deterring."

Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for governor in Texas, has called for "deploying additional deputy sheriffs to the border like local law enforcement is calling for, rather than Texas National Guard units who aren't even authorized to make arrests."

The Texas Rangers are a law enforcement agency NOW, but for most of it's existence in the 19th century it was an army, ruled over by the governor. Most of their successful activities dealt with bandits, Mexicans who had the nerve to come into Texas to raid or steal, many times ignoring the sovereignty of Mexico.(the federal government of Mexico had little or no control of the north, which is why most of the revolutions in Mexico stated there). They were immune from prosecution, like the labor riots in Dallas illustrate. One riot, one ranger- just they don't tell you how that ranger did it. Hint: We used to call it "lead persuasion". Hell the more you know about the laws on the books in Texas, the more you should be concerned. The governor can declare an emergency and put 12,000 troops on the border, including tanks,(300 M1A2), merchandised infantry,(600 M2 APCs) Engineers and all the rest that goes into an army division. The Texas guard has around 70 helos, all newer than the regular army. 1000 guys is only around 8% of the guard force. Can Guardsmen arrest some one? Look at this way, if a guy with body armor with a automatic weapon says get on the ground, you will. Don't forget, around 1100 guardsmen are also law enforcement officers.

Why should anyone be concerned? Texas is no different than any other state. State militias are Constitutionally authorized. The governor is in charge of the state militia (National Guard) during times of peace. 32 U.S. Code § 109 - Maintenance of other troops

I don't look at the politics, as much as the righteousness of an act from the viewpoint of Americans. The national guard mission should absolutely be used to secure our homeland, instead of being sent to protect Iraqi and Afghanistan borders.

Our federal government's failure to enforce our borders is pushed by big business so as to compress wages for American workers, while average taxpayers are forced to subsidize the -------- with social services. The other aspect in the failure of this administration (and others before) is their obsession to expand their Party base even at the expense of those in that Party and of Americans.

Next time a border patrol agents gets rocks throw at him, let him open fire, send in armed drones if you have too.

These people are coming here for a free ride on taxpayer dollars and to colonize the southwest. They are strengthing the drug cartels and draining American resources.

Most ARE NOT children but teenage thugs. We have had mass illegal immigration for over 20 years. It hasn't made America better, it has made it worse. Just look at our prison system full of illegal alien criminals, look at our stagnant wages; La Raza is a terrorist organization.

This is a war, and the USA is losing, but that what the real powers want; a North American Union. And I suspect most of the rubes on this site would gladly follow along.

Its too late to change anything, the 100's of thousand will be allowed to cross under Hussein's watch will just vote socialist democrat like they did in there home countries. They won't have abortions like black Americans have been fooled into doing to suppress there population, they will breed like rabbits. As for me, I planning my escape, this country is doomed.

Nowadays it is no different except that the businesses that are doing the exploiting are construction, slaughterhouse, farms and landscaping companies.

BTW, "separation of powers" refers to the relationship between the three branches of the federal government. Federalism refers to constitutional relationship between the states and the federal government.

Fox hosts outraged that Texas 911 operators are ‘forced' to help dying non-English speakers

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Wednesday were shocked to learn that emergency responders were "forced" to serve non-English speakers in life-threatening situations even if the callers were suspected of entering the country illegally.

"They stumbled across the border illegally and now they need your help!" Fox News host Steve Doocy complained, pointing to a 911 call in Brooks County, Texas where a man who could only speak Spanish asked for a helicopter rescue because his cousin was "turning purple."

"A small Texas town forced to answer 911 from stranded -------- in Spanish!" Doocy exclaimed.

"Not only are they understaffed and lacking resources, now they've got to deal with illegal immigrants who have no business being here," co-host Brian Kilmeade opined.

Brooks County Chief Deputy Urbino "Benny" Martinez pointed out to Kilmeade that his department had a duty to respond to all 911 calls.

"So, those calls you have to respond to, even though for the most part when you get there, you realize, they're not an American citizen?" the Fox News host pressed.

"That's correct, but they're on U.S. soil, and due process comes into play, and that's the way we're taking them as," Martinez explained.

Give me a break, we close the border, MEXICO HAS A REVOLUTION. Maybe their 16th revolution will be the one that works. (fat chance)

I don't know what country you think you live in, but having our border patrol agents and National Guard open fire on children is not the United States. That's something you'd only see happen under the most evil tyrannical regimes on the planet.
