While I don’t trust Rick Perry, on the surface, this appears to be a solid move. Especially considering that the Feds are bitching about lack of federal oversight, lack of training, etc.

Brought to you by the shit heels at the New York Times, who print what they’re told to. Complete with info graphics about innocent little “children” at the border. Not a mention of illegal child trafficking though.

And to top it off, the FEDS ARE BITCHING ABOUT A GOVERNOR TAKING UNILATERAL ACTION!


National Guard in Texas Could Get Arrest Power

HOUSTON — When Gov. Rick Perry of Texas announced plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help with the border crisis, it came with a power unexpected by some. By deploying them himself rather than through Washington, he has the power to order the troops to make arrests and apprehensions, something Guard troops in past border deployments have been prohibited from doing.

Immigrant rights advocates and others, including former federal officials involved in previous National Guard mobilizations, said the troops would lack both training and federal oversight, creating a risk of civil rights violations and deadly encounters with immigrants.

This does not come from the federal government,” said Jayson P. Ahern, a former Customs and Border Protection acting commissioner who helped coordinate deployment of the National Guard to the border in 2006. “That’s the biggest distinction here.This is the governor taking unilateral action. Not having that oversight and supervision and direction as part of a plan from the federal authorities, I think it is reckless and could lead to significant safety issues.

The ones due at the border next month will work side by side not with federal Border Patrol agents but with state police officers of the Department of Public Safety. They will not be able to enforce federal immigration laws but may be able to enforce state law. A 19th-century federal law that makes it a crime for military personnel to perform civilian law enforcement activities does not apply to state-duty troops.

 

It looks like the illegal immigrants flooding the U.S. are about to be officially labeled as “refugees”. And looking at recent history, this changes the game dramatically, as the U.N. will have a reason to amass at our southern border.
