As I recall the TNG has gunboats that can patrol the Rio Grande.

Anyone who fires on the national guard is gonna get their azz shot off wherever they shoot from.

Yes - you would win over Julio the Chupacabra coyote by shooting him with Care Bear hearts.

Somebody swiped your brain and replaced it with a cabbage.

Wrong. It has to do with Obama's and Holder's illegalities, timidity and emasculation. Obama only has one ball, just like Hitler.

Obama Is Being Forced To Clean Up The Immigration Mess Caused By Republicans

The party of white supremacy, Republicans, have spent the past five years blaming the African American President for myriad policies and legislation enacted during white president George W. Bush’s administration.

http://www.politicususa.com/2014/07/21/obama-...

So, 14 years after being elected, Perry suddenly has a revelation to put the guard on his border. All those years as Governor, during the Bush debacle, and he was dithering in Austin, doing nothing.

US History is not your forte I see, otherwise you would find that Democrats were the founders and executors of the KKK white supremacists. But, liberal ignorance is nothing new.

New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
~Emma Lazarus

That would be the same ilk as the Dixiecrats, who later became Republicans.
Give a hoot, read a book.

Maybe at that point Perry did not have aspirations to be president? Loll

Dixiecrats like Harry Truman - the only KKK president.

The first Klan mainly targeted white northern carpetbaggers like the Freedman's bureau.

That Klan disbanded when Reconstruction ended.

The current Klan has more members in northern states than in the south.
