I'm not a Perry fan by any means.

That said, I think all the states should bill the feds for housing illegals.
Had the Federal Government done its job of securing the borders for the past 25 years we'd not be housing all these illegals in our jails.
An estimated 60,000 Americans would still be alive too.

Read up on what happened to Con Agra when they got caught employing thousands of illegal aliens at their meat processing plants and providing them with false ID, fake Soc, Sec Cards and other misdeeds.

Or the story that ran several months ago of the routine raids by county sheriffs to known housing projects here companies routinely place illegals.

The illegals get rounded up, and not much happens to the actual companies that are running these schemes.

New York Times columnist David Brooks on Perry: "He does very well with the alternative-reality right--those who don't believe in global warming, evolution or that Obama was born in the U.S."

"Article IV Section 4.

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion...."

As you can see the states are guaranteed this service - if the service is not provided then requesting reimbursement for having to carry out the provision themselves is justified. Also suing the feds for not carrying out this guaranteed service is justifiable as well as implementing policy at the State level in the absence of the feds doing their job.

I know I know, it's just the Constitution - who cares? Well apparently Leftists do but only when it comes to misinterpreting the 14th Amendment.

Perry knows just what buttons to push. Right now Americans are fed up with the Federal Government ignoring the states need for them to protect our borders. That kind of tough immigration message will look good to Americans that want those immigration laws enforced. It will help him in the next Presidential election.

First, Perry took 17 billion from TARP to balance his own books as governor in 2008, now this.

You're such a Putz. That's what you get from repeating a stupid & false headlie from the daily koook.

TARP went to Banks and other Financial Institutions.


Stimulus money went to the States Moron. That's one reason why the recovery never happened.

Don't you just hate it when it is so obvious when a politician makes a political move like this, all for votes?

I vote for banning political parties anyway.

George Washington said, "It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration....agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one....against another....it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption...thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."

That brilliant man looked into his crystal ball 225 years ago and saw the dangers of Perry's and political parties and saw what America has become today.

Now you're sounding like an American who has the gall to hold the records-hiding, kenyan communist fake, phony, and fraud accountable.

The lib progressives communists will not stand for that for one damn minute.

Btw, Putin took his shirt off today....so the commies and ghetto Ocommie voters are busy stroking like there's no tomorrow.

But they'll be back...right after they wipe down their sopping legs.
