Rick Perry: We’re Going to Bypass Barack Obama and Secure the Border!

By TPIWriter | 10,628 views

Governor Rick Perry of Texas takes illegal immigration very seriously. (See here and here.) As a border state, Texas faces overwhelming problems of increased crime and a strain on social services.

Now the Lone Star State’s Republican Governor Rick Perry says that once again the state may have to act on its own, with or without help or funding from the federal government, to secure its border with Mexico.

The transcript:

“We’ve been able to shut down illegal activities in certain sectors with our different operations that we’ve had,” Perry said on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday. “But I think there’s a point in time where you say, ‘You know what? This 1,200 mile border has to be secured.’ And if there is a people and if there is a place that it can happen, it will be Texas.”

Perry said that most have been focusing on the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing into America when discussing the border crisis. And while he said what they are going through is a “tragedy,” it is important to remember that the children only make up about 20 percent of all the illegals flooding America’s borders.

“80 percent of those coming across, we don’t know who they are,” Perry said. “In Katy, Texas yesterday an individual was apprehended who had murdered an individual in Louisiana.”

The[y] also two discussed a 9-year-old girl who was recently molested by an illegal immigrant in Texas, and Perry said there have been roughly 3,000 murders by illegals in the past six years.

“That’s unacceptable, and that’s the reason that we have to secure that border,” Perry said.

As we saw in Murrieta, California, the Federal government has been placing ads asking people to house illegal immigrants. Unassumingly, this is to hide them in places where they are less visible.

But the crisis is real. Rick Perry is ready to take action and protect his state at any costs. Well done, Governor!

    Well said. I don’t think people across the country have any idea what really happens along the border. Good luck.

  2. Steven says:

    We left Texas due to illegals and their rampant crime no respect for our laws. 19 years as an honest and loyal Texan thrown away because I wanted my 4 year olds to live. Danger was everywhere and illegals were at the root of it. Thefts abductions car wrecks murder sleezy gang trash everywhere it is like the wild west again in most parts of houston. I regret leaving but as the terminator says Ill be back. Low lifes gang trash are terrorists they are illegally here.Send in the seals and rangers to exterminate them. Now our communist leader is trying to use this against America.

  3. Tex says:

    ill belive it when i see it,this is the guy that gave texas gardisil shots [6000 kickback from MERK] gave texas tort reform [cant sue doctors for negligence and wrongful death] he went to a bilderberg meeting which is illegal [logan act] he said texas cant build a wall around the border but why cant we just be friends with the people coming in illegally,he also worked for al gore before coming to texas then hes suddnely a republican after he gets to texas,he also got tons of cash to bring in the texas corridor which i belive texans stopped,he took texas highways which are alreday paid for and leased them to a mexican corporation so people now have to pay a toll fee for 50 years for a highway payed for by the people of texas.. nah i dont buy anything he says..why is he still a governor ..because nobody knows anything about him or wwhat hes done to texas,well some people know but the majority dont.

      tex I live in the D/FW area
      you must be in a vacuum half your post is untrue

      The Texas corridor has been a great success in Texas

      The toll roads are ALL managed by the state through TexD.O.T… NOT MEXICAN componys

      Perry NEVER SAID:
      “l texas cant build a wall around the border but why cant we just be friends with the people coming in illegally… a link were he said tha you must be confusing him with George or Barry
      Financially TEXAS is the only stae in the union with a budget surplus …due it great part to Perry

      You are either a political hack who does not even live here .trying to misinform people
      or are severely misinformed yourself

  4. Mr Perry,
    As much as we understand your points about the government in DC needing to provide assistance, this government is never going to fund or help you in any way shape or form. Forget about the government, call for a disaster now for later pay out from government when there’s a new president, then stop focusing on the government, then draw attention from the people in your state, volunteers, fund raisers along with whatever state money is available. Then later, after this president is gone and hopefully a conservative takes his place, then go after the government for back paying this mega mess created by the mega mega mess right now in DC. But to expect the current administration to get involved to help you shut down what they want occurring for a voter pool in the future, is, well, somewhat naive to the matter at hand.

  5. A very large concern I have, I believe this president is not sitting at his helm focusing on this immigration ordeal like everyone else around the country is. I believe as most do that this was intentional to succeed in sapping the attention from state authorities such as this governor in Texas as you can see in this interview he has his hands full.
    I believe while this is going on obama is propagating his next even bigger scandal on this country while we sleep focused only on this.
    Obama is turning the wheels, we need to take those wheels away from him, just by pass this president with every thing we do and take matters in our own hands as this example shows we can do as Americans.

  6. CA already has 1 in 9 being an illegal, have laws protecting them above citizens and a La Raza gov. Of course it is intentional. It’s called the North American Union, the collapse of the dollar and bankruptcy of the states for open borders. One step away from a one world gov.

    I am so disgusted with what is happening to this beautiful state. Trash is everywhere. Illegals have 0 respect for our land or our water. Emergency rooms are used like free clinics, gangs roam in every city, contagious diseases are spread to our children. The idea that the gov. is willing to shell out $6,000 per month to house these lawbreakers infuriates me. We have poor children of our own to care for, our vets, our elderly, our disabled. I do not mind my tax dollars helping out my fellow Americans in need but not one red cent should go to lawbreakers. 267 protests this last weekend – every city, every town, every community in the U.S.A. should be protesting. Obama is either totally inept or he is out to deliberately ruin America. Either way, he needs to go before any more damage is done. I wish every governor would just say no to him and deport every single man, woman and child here illegally.

  8. Bob says:

    All words and no action! Stop talking about it and just do it. Forget the politics and do what’s right for the country. Obama is on his way out, but Washington, DC will never take care of this problem. It’s been this way forever.
