BREAKING: Texas-Led Border Security Surge 'Imminent'
Breitbart's Texas ^ | June 18, 2014 | Bob Price

Posted on 06/18/2014 5:59:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

HOUSTON, Texas—State Representative Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) told Breitbart Texas she spoke with Governor Rick Perry’s (R-TX) Office and they confirmed the surge to deal with the Texas border crisis is about to begin. Details are not available at this time, but Riddle said, “It is going to happen.”

Riddle spoke with Governor Perry’s office about the issue and was assured it “is going to be coming soon.” She said Governor Perry’s office is working very closely with Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s office along with the office of House Speaker Joe Straus.

“They are gathering together everything they need to begin this right away,” Riddle said. She told Breitbart Texas that she could not divulge any information about exactly when, how long, and where the surge would be for reasons of operational security. She also could not disclose what the operational objectives would be at this time.

Riddle said, “We are going to feel this particularly here in the Houston area because of Houston’s role as a command and control center for the cartels--for both their drug and human trafficking operations.” She added that Texas Department of Public Safety Director (DPS) Steve McCraw told her last week that Houston is still the hub for these operations.

Riddle said, “Governor Perry is very angry that the feds are doing nothing about this problem.” She went on to say, “I didn’t expect the feds to do anything."(continued)

“Governor Perry is very angry that the feds are doing nothing about this problem.”

I wouldn’t say they are doing nothing.

They are fomenting this BS...

This could set the stage for something very very big.

It seems that Colorado has a “State right” to allow pot sales, but Texas may not have a right to it’s own boarders.

This could get really interesting.

They should be arresting any and all Federal, State, and local officials that are aiding and abetting this INVASION.

Depends on what Perry does. I believe if he puts the NG on the border he would sail into the white house.

Close the border.
Block all federal vehicles.
Take care of the kids who are here then send them back. If they’re parents in other states want to accompany them, let ‘em.

I highly doubt any “surge” will happen....except to usher more illegals into Texas. If Perry was going to do the right thing, he would have years ago.

The time has come for texas to seal their own border. And when this racist administration gets their court injunction, he needs to stand tall and say “come and stop us”.
If they won’t follow the law, then we won’t either!!
Why should we be the law abiders while they break the law at will????

They better make it a real surge....thousands upon thousands of TEXAS law officers on the border so the Feds will think twice about stepping in.

Governor Rick Perry’s (R-TX) Office and they confirmed the surge to deal with the Texas border crisis is about to begin.

After 30++ years of an escalating epic lawless invasion of our country, Perry is getting ready to deal with the border crisis. As he heads south to the border, tens of millions of illegal aliens stand behind him

His sincerity is unquestionable...

Call up the national guard, if possible.

Send a message loud and clear that the feds are not in control over the states, especially when they enact policies that harm the states and the citizens in those states.

Texas needs to use those balls they’re always talking about.
Shut down their border. Work with the other border states to push this invasion into CA. Bus all the illegals into CO, OR, CA, and let them deal with this crap. Why is arizona and texas taking this sitting down?

An honest question:

Rick Perry can declare an “emergency” but what actual resources does he have without the Feds ?

What force can he deploy ?

I'll spend a month down there to do my part, all volunteer with no pay.
I'm sure there are at least another 1-hundred-thousand also willing to give
a little time towards our border protection.

Just deputize us and we'll build that fence and seal that border nice and tight!
I'll bring all my tools, including a nice 16" deterrent.

Im sure he could gather up 10,000 VOLUNTEERS who would be more than willing to stop this madness!
How inept would D.C. look to the rest of the country if texas shut down their southern border with zero federal help?

Screw them. Send the Texas Rangers and the Texas National guards to the boarder. Turn those at the boarder around, ones that get through, capture, run through 2 month hard labor camp (building fence?) and then put them back over the boarder.

Why do border states need the feds for this?

Other states should pay Texas to take the illegals they capture and to process them.

We can fix this problem with courage and honor.

It is time to back Obama and the feds down.

Perhaps they will, but Texas has over a thousand miles of border with messy-co.

I'll believe it when I see it, but I welcome it.

If he does it, then he probably will instantly get the Republican nomination and likely be the next president. 70% of Americans have had enough. That include Democrats that are losing jobs to the illegals.

The rich hollywood creeps will be mad because their cheap illegal yard and house labor won’t be available. Same goes for the Chamber of Chronism.
