Gov. Perry Asks Obama To Do One Thing
About the Border Crisis, Which Would Help,
But Which Obama Is Certain Not To Do

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

After meeting with President Obama on the border crisis in Dallas today, Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement. In it, he lists several measures that the president should take to secure the border. Here is the governor’s full statement. DALLAS – Gov. Rick Perry today met with President Barack Obama to discuss the ongoing humanitarian and national security crises occurring along the Texas-Mexico border. In the meeting, Gov. Perry urged the president to undertake the necessary steps to secure the border and ease the crises. “Five hundred miles south of here in the Rio Grande Valley there is a humanitarian

Instead of acknowledging that his own policies have played any role in the crisis, he instead blamed Republicans and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem. Some people might see that as extortion.

Everyone sees it as extortion. Only Democrats refuse to call it that, but everyone knows what it is, following a well-established pattern of juvenility.

Everyone also knows that our POTUS is a ideological pugilist whose first recourse is revenge and adolescent temper tantrums. How did such a spiritually acned teenager come to run this great country? All he does is hang out with his photo-op buds and slam doors.

God does have His reasons, but I´m not that sure I want to live long enough to learn what they are, considering that ordinary Americans are helpless right now.

Things can change, though, when men and women of honor and courage decide "enough".

FTA "talk of “comprehensive immigration reform” always causes a spike in illegal crossings; because of how the 2008 William Wilberforce Act is being implemented; and because of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals....DACA is his policy, created via executive order. He could rescind it any time he wants. He won’t."

The southern border is what the Cloward Piven Strategy looks like in practice. I live in Texas and we are being invaded by illegal aliens with all kinds of communicable diseases and they are being sent all over the country. How I despise obama, the Democrats and the msm for this purposeful destruction of the country.

Poor Rick Perry...he´s the governor of a major state, a likely presidential candidate, and his response to the "crisis" on his border is a whiny press release and a hand out for Federal money to pay law enforcement overtime. He was suckered at the meeting he demanded with Obama, getting nothing but a horselaugh. And Obama is incompetent? Let Perry be Perry...he ain´t no Reagan.

This entire past week has been a lead up of reports that perry invited obama to tour the border with the governor or there would be no meeting. Now there was a meeting with the beggar governor and king obama.

#5, you are mistaken. Governor Perry invited Obama to tour the border. Also, Perry refused to meet Obama´s plane in Austin for a tarmac handshake. Perry said he wanted a meeting, not just a handshake. An agreement was reached for Perry to greet the president elsewhere and to be granted a meeting.

#4 goes from Perry thread to Perry thread saying the same things. We get it, #4. You don´t like anything about Rick Perry. Your privilege, of course.

#6 is correct and I too must disagree with sour perceptions of Perry. This meeting (as opposed to a tarmac photo op) had to take place to reveal harder evidence of Obama´s truculence in this entire issue. Even LoFos and NoFos are becoming perturbed about the southern border being washed away by an admitted tsunami of illegals (with highly contagious and serious diseases); the more the situation is brought to their attention, the more they will turn away from Obama. But they can´t do that unless someone like Perry forces it into the news, time after time.

In this particular news piece, we discover that Obama "blamed Republicans [for the border problem] and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem."

Even NoFos can see that threat for what it is: Obama won´t do anything about the problem unless he gets the $3.7 billion he demands for extra judges, etc. Why are judges needed? Does it really take a law degree to figure out whether a person is in the country illegally and must be deported? (Like the gang members who freely admit to torture and killings.)

I salute Perry for keeping his cool and eliciting Obama´s threat--which basically says "Do what I tell you or I´m taking my ball and going home. So there" (emphasized by a foot stamp).

obamais doing this so he can blame the Republicans for not giving him money to control the border...he doesn´t need the money..all obama has to do is tell the border patrol to close the border. he could also bus the people back to the country they came from. i.e. President Dwight Eisenhower..1954 Operation Wetback..sorry folks that´s what it was called. thousands of illgals came over the border..Ike then had them bused back to Mexico. It can be done, and the president has the authority to do so. obama wont, and he is the one at fault. NOT the Republicans its all about politics.
another side note. these illegals are not coming over the border for jobs..they are here to live off the taxpayer. They don´t wrk in their own country..they sure are not going to work here.. and obama has made it very nice for people that don´t work.to live off the taxpayers

Frankly, it is time that the governors of these states DEMAND that these facilities be open for inspection. Gov. Perry should put the Texas National Guard on the border. Let Obama arrest him. The only way to stop Obama is to flaunt his edicts. Until Americans decide that enough is enough this lawless behavior will continue. Unfortunately, we can´t look to the Republicans in Washington DC to support defying the President. It is going to take a few regular Americans to stand up and say, no more.

Where are the patriots working in these centers? Some of these workers need to be whistleblowers. A few pictures of the actual mess that is unfolding would open a few eyes. Surely, they don´t agree with what is going on. Some of them need to break the blackout imposed by this imperial president. The American people deserve to know exactly what their boy king is bringing into their neighborhoods.

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing. - Edmund Burke

Re. the above comments about Gov Perry. I am definitely not anti-Perry, but My opinion is that Perry was rolled by zero. The meeting was totally on zero´s terms. What difference does it make whether the handshake was at Austin or Dallas. The optics were the same. Perry waiting dutifully at the bottom of the ramp while the king struts down and slaps him on tha back.

Videos of the group meeting at Love field showed Perry sitting sullenly at the far corner of the table while zero was yukking it up with the Dallas mayor.

Just my observations.

The message that was sent to the low info voters was that Perry was refusing to shake President Obama´s hand. In fact, one comment I overheard was, Is he afraid the black will rub off? I´m married to a Dem low info voter and am regularly astounded by how stupid the elites think they are. Evidently the programming is strong.

What would you have had Perry do, #16? I guess he could have taken an icepick to Air Force 1´s tires or spit on Obama´s shoes.

Rick Perry is the governor of Texas behaving civilly and as courteously as the office of the presidency deserves under awkward circumstances. I believe Perry got the most facetime possible against Obama´s sullen refusal to substantially divert from his frantic fund-raising activities in Austin and Dallas. The "roundtable" meeting wasn´t part of Obama´s original schedule.

Perry, understand one thing, the First amateur clown looks you in the eye, turns around and does the opposite of what he just told you. Read Ron Kessler´s book about First Families. But this one takes the cake. I believe he is also full of drugs and has the attention span of an amoebae. The former community organizer is a very stupid man you would not hire to polish your shoes, he would be too dumb to find the shoes. We are lurching from one crisis to another. Some, like the border crisis, created to tear our attention away from the last scandal. I say have this barf bag resign. Well, we know there is no Santa!

Does anyone remember when Gov Brewer met Obama on the tarmac a year or so ago and all you saw was she in his face pointing her finger? All the MSM could talk about was how she was so disrespectful to Obama, etc. NO matter how valid her argumanets, she lost to the optics of some governor disrespecting Prez. Obama.

Let´s face it - Obama, for all his spritually acned teenager temper tantrums, has the ultimate in optics with Air Force 1, the Seal of the POTUS, the young Marines in dress blues, etc. to overwhelm anyone to his advantage.

Bottom line - our country is being overrun and we´re arguing optics.

Under longstanding US immigration law every illegal alien in the USA, even those caught right after they jump over the border fence has the right to a deportation hearing. When the border patrol catches a non criminal illegal alien they must explain that right to the apprehended alien, along with advising the alien that he or she can waive the right to a deportation hearing and voluntarily return to their home country. That is basic.

Obama and the liberal Democrats are claiming that the William Wilberforce anti trafficking law, a liberal Democrat designed amendment to the immigration law that was meant to detour forced sex trafficking that was passed back during the G.W. Bush era now covers all the tens of thousands of young illegal aliens coming in across the borderline and that law requires that every one of them be accorded a formal deportation hearing, and that each of them must have a government appointed immigration lawyer at the hearing. If that is the case, and that continues, none of those young illegal aliens will ever be deported, since the initial hearing, because of the numbers involved, will not be held for years, and to go through the complicated immigration court process along with later appeals processes have been liberalized beyond belief could take a decade, and ultimately always favor the illegal alien, who has been paying his or her immigration lawyer all that time, staying in the USA in the end.

The immigration laws and the highly esoteric immigration court system set up to favor immigration lawyers and illegal aliens needs to be scrapped, and a new very simple process put in place to the affect that once it is established that the alien respondent is an illegal alien that he or she is quickly deported.

Doesn´t this qualify as a foreign invasion? It certainly does to me. Just who invited these people to come to this country? The only one that did is Obozo. As such, he has to be held as responsible for any and all of their actions and diseases they spread around and anything else they do. And there is no way that under current law that they can become citizens or be eligible to vote for anyone. To allow any of that to happen has to be a violation of current law. Why can´t the lo-fo´s and the rest of the country see that? We here at LCom do.

Harsh critics of Perry must understand that in this particular situation nobody, not Perry, nobody, can effectively jump right in and do something heroic right now, this minute about what´s happening at the border in his state and in border states governed by others.

What he has to do is inform and educate the country, as he did in his remarks today, about the fact that Obama could do something practical but won´t. Yes, WE knew that beyond a shadow of a doubt--but not everybody in the country did.

Now Perry can take some action and will be roundly criticized by the opposition. So? So he will now have the ability to say, "Look, I tried to convince Obama that we are in dire straits here in Texas and across the country but all he says is ´gimme the money I want or I´ll just turn my back and ignore you.´ " And right there he will have the grounds to do something himself.

You all know that those involved in law enforcement in Texas will send one or two or six or more officers to control the border. Other border states should follow suit. If they don´t, let THEM provide the $3.7 billion that the rest of us who help support this country paid into the treasury--the majority of whom have numerous generations of antecedents who also paid their way with money and lives.

Who else is out there, face to face with Obama, trying to solve or at least ameliorate the problem? Perry and Texas need support, not criticism.

Unaccompanied illegal immigrant children with communicable diseases have given or exposed federal agents to lice, scabies, tuberculosis and chicken pox, according to a report issued Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General. In two cases, the children of a border patrol agent got chicken pox contracted from their parents’ exposure to unaccompanied children with chicken pox, according to the report on conditions of detention centers and border facilities. The report, the first in a series, is based on 87 unannounced visits to 63 detention centers being used to house unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in Texas, Arizona and California

It´s the Joe Biden you didn’t know — and might not want to see. Secret Service agents dread being assigned to protect the vice president, in part because Biden’s a big fan of skinny dipping, according to a new tell-all book. In “The First Family Detail,” author Robert Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly “hidden lives” of Presidents and the other important people they protect. Biden is portrayed as being more interested in coming off as a “regular Joe” than being potentially responsible for the nation’s nuclear codes.

The latest embarrassing incident involves Georgia Senate candidate Michelle Nunn, who suffered the indignity of having her 144-page campaign plan leaked. By the way, whatever happened to political professionals applying the “Washington Post rule”? That rule is simple: If it wouldn’t be flattering if it was published in The Post, don’t put it in writing. Anyway, her entire blueprint for faux authenticity has been published, and it contains all of the usual and contrived political maneuvering that voters find so disgusting. The plan involves

Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday criticized an American “policy of calculated ambivalence” toward Israel, a nod toward conservative voters as he considers a second run for president. The retiring Republican governor spoke at a pro-Israel rally outside Dallas’ city hall. Perry mostly refrained from attacking American policy in a five-minute speech, but said America must continue to wholeheartedly support Israel and that Israel was justified in defending itself. Several hundred people at the rally waved white-and-blue flags and cheered as he spoke. “America must be clear: Israel has the right to exist as a Jewish state,” Perry said, his

Cold War II? World War III?

A reporter asked President Obama on Tuesday if ratcheted sanctions placed on Russia by America and the EU marked “a new Cold War.” The United Kingdom’s Common Defense Committee said Thursday that NATO is unprepared for further aggression from Russia. Roger Cohen of the New York Times has explained in the Atlantic why World War III is not so unimaginable after all. It has become apparent that Eastern Europe is unstable, and in a world knit tightly together by technology and treaties, that instability may prove for everyone inescapable. It is sobering to think about the repercussions and lessons of the

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Will Mitt Romney please adopt me? The Romster has been blogging about a fantastic vacation he’s taken his grandchildren on across the southwest (go there before the barbarians cover it in cable cars) and it sounds much nicer than the holidays I took as a kid. “All totaled, we hiked over 50 miles,” he writes. [Snip] But is he right to throw away a third bid so easily? Critics may laugh at the thought of “Romney 2016: the Last Stand” and journalists may cringe at the potential boredom. Yet it’s not such a dumb idea. After all, the polls show

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

In Kansas City today, President Obama complained that Republicans continued to oppose his agenda in Congress. “C’mon and help out a bit,” he said, addressing the GOP. “Stop bein’ mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview. The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon called on Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilian life during its military operations in Gaza, saying the conflict was taking too high a toll on civilians. "The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing. Gaza officials say more than 1,370 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the
