Called Grand Prairie, TX, local govt. about their decision to house 2000 illegal immigrants, and I talked to the secretary Lydia and she said that the Fed govt. ordered that Grand Prairie ISD take them in, and then I asked her why doesn't Grand Prairie invoke the 10th amendment and she hung up on me.
I called many more times and got the runaround and finally talked to Grand Prairie city Manager Tom Hart, and asked him him his political affiliation and then he hung up on me.
The City of Grand Prairie has about 100,000 residents, how could they possibly afford to take in 2,000? And this is probably only just getting started too
Tom Hart....with an H? Is that who needs a call?
Yesterday there was a thread that the Grand Prairie officials were upset that Dallas was getting some 2000 illegals and GP had not even been contacted by the FEDs.
Just another North Texas Democratic Cesspool.
Screw them. They can sow their own destruction if they want. If they want to take these people in then fine... but don’t ask anyone from OUTSIDE of Grand Prairie to pay for this. The real problem is that they will be pegged as a PERMANENT DUMPING GROUND from now on.
If they don’t care about their own sovereignty then maybe they shouldn’t have any.
And where is governor Perry on this issue?
Almost powerless, where the Texas Constitution put him.
I don't have much use for Gov. Goodhair, but he did, along with Dewhurst and Strauss, authorize $1.3M/wk to deal with the influx.
and exactly how will that be spent? buses? blankets and lollipops?
Why don't the BP just drop them off back on the Mexico side ???

So they are aiding the feds?
This has me boiling mad. Remember, quartering of British soldiers (foreign agents) was one of the driving forces of the Revolution. Is this so different?
It's sub-optimal, to say the least, but he is increasing the police/military presence along the border area.
And as hard as I am on liberal A-holes, it's important for me to give credit where it's due.
If he is just aiding and abetting the feds, I don’t think “credit” is what I’d give him.
