Perry Bills Feds $349M for Incarcerating Illegals


www.foxnews.com

In his two-page letter to Napolitano, Perry described the formula used to come up with his $349.2 million bill, including $94.4 million to cover costs incurred by county jails.

"During tough economic times, when communities are making difficult decisions about their own budgets, Texas counties are being asked to cover more than $94.4 million in direct costs related to housing illegal immigrants while the state has been left to cover more than $254.8 million in such costs."

"The longstanding failure of the federal government to secure our border with Mexico continues to burden local communities and resources in Texas," Perry wrote. "Because there are not enough troops on the ground, illegal immigrants are able to penetrate the Texas border every day and use taxpayer-funded resources."


Right, like those bills are going to find anything but the round file in Washington?

Ha.

Not.

We've got bankers to bail out! And wars to fight for profit! And drugs and guns to run!

And you want us to spend any money stopping illegals at the border?

What are you crazy, Rick Perry?

Call him crazy but he's got a good point. The Government wont give the states the prpoer resources to protect the borders. Nor will it allow the states to deal with the problem the way they see fit.
Somebody has to pick up the tab, and since the states hands are tied by the Govt, the Govt should be responsible for the extra burden that is incured by the State.

So Rick Perry wants money from the FEDS after he gave access to universities to illegals. Not only that but the Mexican president gave him an award because of the sanctuary cities Perry set up in Texas.

If the feds wont enforce federal immigration laws, then they should have to pay reparations to the states being forced to dish out the cash to deal with the infestation of illegal immigrants. they are ILLEGAL after all. The whole part of them being ILLEGAL seems to be largly ignored by our current socialist administration.

But he angered Hispanic leaders in June by endorsing legislation that would have prohibited cities from adopting "sanctuary" rules for handling suspected immigrants.


Same article from OP.

Can't have a good point if your all over the place on immigration. Political posturing is all this is.

Perry was against a fence/wall on border and criticize Arizona bill. Even the tough anti-immigration bill that he added to the special sessions failed to pass. Despite the fact that the legislatures had the votes to pass it.

Furthermore, one should ask what measurements Perry took during his time as governor to address the problem. Surely, Perry could have had a law passed making it harder for employers to hire illegals. Seems the only time he ever address the border was when he was in the spotlight.

An election year grandstand, but a good move all the same. This is an issue that requires constant hammering until something is done. Regardless of the solution ultimately implemented, this current lack of policy, laws that are purposefully not enforced and budgetary nonsense has to be eliminated so we can move on and make changes in law that accomodate the new policies, what ever they happen to be.

I would have preferred Perry to load all of the illegals currently in prison or on assistance in Texas on buses, drive them to DC and let them out in front of the DHS headquarters and leave them there. Or do what they used to do in NYC with bums, which is to give them a hundred bucks and put them on a bus to Florida. Perry could put them on a bus to a sanctuary city in California with $500 and be done with it.

If he puts them on a bus to anywhere, it should be back to Mexico.

That won't solve the problem. They will just come back. Dump them off on the Mall in DC and perhaps something will be done about it. A few hundred thousand folks milling about the monuments in DC would be beautiful. After all, they wanted to come to the US, they might as well see the sights.

The NWO calls for a borderless society. The Amero is still a NWO agenda item before a global currency is created. It costs too much money to build fences that are easily traversed by tunnel systems. Attacking a symptom instead of the disease is not the answer. Sorta like the war on drugs. How much money is spent to keep the drugs illegal?

NAFTA was created to promote borderless commerce with Mexico. There aren't too many fences in place to keep the Canadians out either. World peace will only come when all countries can preserve their cultures without forcing others to comply with their beliefs. This was one of the principles our founders understood and instilled in our Constitution.

That was the first thing to come to my mind as well. Load a bunch of buses with these convicted illegals and ship them strait to the steps of the Capitol, House and Senate Offices, and the White House.

I would have said ship them to the Districts of the Senate and House Leaders as well as the Presidents home town, but I think they would actually love having thousands of new voters.

I bet it would help Texas get rid of a lot of illegals if they advertised this free service. "Turn yourself in and get a ticket to Washington D.C.!!"

I think Perry should forget about billing the feds. Instead, he should buy one of these:




And send the illegals back across the Rio Grande at a fraction of the cost of incarceration. Then bill the Mexican government for not keeping better tabs on their citizens. While we are at it, let's bill the Mexican government for the cost of medical treatment their citizens are receiving. In a short time, Mexico's debt to the US would become so enormous that they may as well just allow their country to be annexed into the union.

Yeah, there is a landing pad. Prick Perry calls it a "safety net"; but in reality, it's just dirt.

Perry is a bought and paid for hack.He talks like a tea party person but he will do what ever the bankers want. He has done crap for Texas and will do the same for the country if elected.Just look into what he has done not what he says.

I hope Perry doesn't plan on using the Texas financial status for support in his campaign.


But as the state's budget shortfall widens—to as much as $18 billion, or about 20% of the next two-year budget, according to the state legislature's latest analysis released earlier this month—critics are complaining that Mr. Perry's policies have left the state with little room to reduce spending.



Mr. White said the governor has focused on shortsighted fiscal policies, including plugging budget holes with stimulus money. "For 10 years Rick Perry has failed to develop a long-term budget," he said.

Take one look at our border with Mexico and the idea that all the crackdowns are for national security is obviously a lie. The wars are for resources, the pat downs are to condition us for more and more invasions of our privacy. If they were serious about it, that border would be heavily patrolled. But what do they do? Use it as a sound bite on the news or a couple sentences in an article to help their campaign. Yeah, make sure the TSA strip searches a 6 year old or makes that incontinent grandma remove her adult diaper, that'll keep us safe.
