Texas Gov. Perry Sends National Guard to Border


At least one elected official is doing something about the mess on the southern border:

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced Monday that he’s deploying as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to help manage the surge of child migrants at the state’s southern border.

Perry, among the most vocal critics of President Obama’s handling of the crisis, said the extra force is needed to deter the wave of immigrants, safeguard Americans from crime and protect taxpayers from the costs of managing the new arrivals.

“I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor,” Perry said at a briefing in Austin. “The price of inaction is too high for Texans to pay.”

Obama, as I’ve said before, hoped to use this manufactured crisis to push for amnesty; but now he seems to have moved to Plan B, letting most of the kids stay in the country and eventually letting them vote — Democrat, of course.
