Legislation Launched to Bypass Obama, Have Governors Deploy National Guard / Gov. Perry to Send 1,000

Perry Said to Be Sending 1,000 Guard Troops to Border
But... CURRENT law says TEXAS will have to pay for the deployment.
If the President orders National Guard deployed.. the Fed pays;
If a Governor orders National Guard deployment.. the State pays.
Which now brings us to a bill being introduced by Con. Steve King (Iowa)which has already garnered 2 dozen co-sponsers.
The question is: Will Harry Reid once again block and bury another one before it ever reaches the floor? (yawn... probably)
cheers to all (who NEVER give up!!!)

Perry getting "This Week's Loser" Headline

really gave him some psuedo balls, for the moment.

Constitutional Question

Has anyone else been unable to find Constitutional authority for the U.S. government to control immigration? Article 1 Section 8 clearly states the feds have the authority to set the naturalization rules. These are the rules governing how one becomes a citizen once in the U.S. This does not necessarily give the feds control of immigration. This omission and the 10th Amendment pretty much points to immigration policy being a State power.

Am I reading too much into this?

Immigration is invasion

Article I Section 10 -- 3: No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Article I Section 8 -- Congress shall have the power to: 15: To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

Article IV Section 4 --
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Rick Perry is 13 1/2 years to

Rick Perry is 13 1/2 years to late. His inaction up until now has contributed to the crises. Yeah, he clearly is trying to get his Presidential poll numbers up.


Those are my thought exactly.

Although being to late is probably better than never!
