“I stand with Governor Rick Perry and his decision to deploy the National Guard to secure the US-Mexico border. Countless times, Americans have witnessed the President's refusal to enforce our immigration laws, resulting in the influx of immigrant children pouring into our country. Furthermore, his refusal to even visit the border illustrates his half-hearted efforts into finding a real solution to this crisis. Thus, Texas took the reins and is taking charge itself, as there seems to be no back up from this administration.  Until President Obama steps up to the plate and actually regains operation control of our southern border, Texans will do our part to protect our border, the people of Texas, and of the United States.”
