Texas Approves Extra Spending on Border Security After Obama Administration Abandons its Duty
Since the Obama administration can’t be bothered to actually do its job, the state of Texas has to burden the taxpayers with the cost of actually defending our borders.
“Texas can’t afford to wait for Washington to act on this crisis, and we will not sit idly by while the safety and security of our citizens are threatened,” Gov. Rick Perry said in a statement.
The announcement was made in a statement by Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and state House Speaker Joe Straus. The state Department of Public Safety has been authorized to fund operations at about $1.3 million a week.
“Until the federal government recognizes the danger it’s putting our citizens in by its inaction to secure the border, Texas law enforcement must do everything they can to keep our citizens and communities safe,” Perry said.
The so-called surge will continue at least through the end of the calendar year to combat a “flood” of illegal immigrants, the statement said.
Meanwhile, the media keeps pretending that it’s violence in South America that push immigrants to illegally enter America instead of Obama’s amnesty promises pulling them here.
