Posted on 07/03/2014 5:06:17 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry warned members of Congress Thursday that transnational gangsters and terrorists are looking to exploit the border crisis, which he said endangers the nation's security.
At a House Homeland Security Field Hearing at South Texas College in McAllen, Texas, Perry said gangsters and terrorists can easily take advantage of the crisis at the border that has "strained the Border Patrol," which Perry said already has "insufficient" resources. He said because the Border Patrol now has to focus on the overflow of illegal immigrant children instead of on their "primary task," the border is "less secure than at any time in the recent past."
Perry said that "transnational gangs are seeking to take advantage of this situation," and the border is so porous that people from nations that have ties to terrorism can also sneak in as well.
The Texas governor also said that allowing the illegal immigrant children from Central America to remain in the United States is "not a more humane option" because it will "only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake this very dangerous" and often deadly journey.
"What's the next group of people?" Perry asked, saying that if the United States allows illegal immigrants from Central America to remain the country, then other nations with even more dangerous people may want to encourage their citizens to come to America en masse as well.
He said this "humanitarian crisis" will turn into a "monumental tragedy" unless the Obama administration sends a clear message that those who enter the nation illegally will be sent back.
"Secure this border, Mr. President," Perry said, calling on Obama to "finally address this issue" and "invest sufficient resources."

Man the phones. Urge Governor Perry to call out the national Guard and the militia!! Defend the borders!! Repel the invasion!!
forget congress..they are useless
Governor, take action yourself. You should see by now that Obama wants to destroy America yet you keep making these stupid futile pleas.
Take action, Governor Perry!
Amen!! Git ‘er done!!
It would be great if he could but AZ knows what happens when a oovernor tries it,
It could very well be Rick Perry’s moment, if he wants it, and he’s up to it.
Don’t say a word, Governor.
Make a decision.
At this point, what would you lose for doing that?
this better be “somebody’s moment”
Perry whines like a baby, but does nothing to defend his borders.
Texas is a sovereign state..
this BS federal govt has to be abolished and the American people have the right and the authority to do just that.
the question is, do we have the will and the courage ?
RICK PERRY: PRESIDENTS, TERRORISTS, GANGSTERS LOOKING TO EXPLOIT BORDER CRISIS
everyone who is on Twitter send a message to RICK PERRY
Exactly how is Perry securing the border? I hear money and securing the border; but don’t hear how.
Perry is bought and paid for by the GOPe. The Stupid Party wants cheap labor for their corporate cronies; the Rats wants voters who'll suck at the federal teat.
That's why I don't give a feces if the GOP wins the Senate. We're past the point of no return now.
Who would’ve ever thought so many years ago America would become so weak and broken that it would passively stand aside while hordes of invaders pour in uncontested through the southern border?
Good God, we’ve fallen a long way...
Hey, he’s just got to go ahead and do it. Obama trashes the constitution and the law every damn day. Congress and the courts either can’t or refuses to stop him. The states are going to have to act on their own to defend their borders, their sovereignty and their citizens or America is done.
Rick will never make any progress by calling out the administration like that.
Surrender monkeys should be seen and not heard!!
