Texas governor Rick Perry opposes border fence, in Mexico

Texas governor Rick Perry - supporter of the Trans-Texas Corridor - said lots of things on a trip to Mexico today:
..."I don't think [immigration "reform"] is that difficult of an issue if Congress would have the maturity to sit down and really discuss it and cut out all of the mean rhetoric and really talk about what is a solution to this issue," Perry told a news conference.

Regarding immigration reform, Perry highlighted the importance of developing a foolproof biometric identification system to track individuals and to ensure that they pay taxes and "live within our laws."
Did I just hear boots off in the distance, or was I just imagining things?
He suggested offering renewable, 24-month visas for those who follow such requirements and "incarceration and/or deportation" for those who do not.

He added that, under such a system, he would support a "free flow of individuals between these two countries who want to work and want to be an asset to our country and to Mexico."
Since those are (I believe) two different countries, they will always have competing interests. Thus, it would appear that Perry foolishly thinks people can completely be an asset to both at the same time.
Perry also said Texas has given a blueprint for securing the U.S.-Mexico border to the federal government.

"We know how to deal with border security, and you don't do it by building a fence," he said. "You do it by putting boots on the ground; you do it by using the technology that's available ... and coordinating very highly with local, state and federal officials.
Why do our elected officials keep making trips to Mexico and making questionable comments there? A past example comes from WA governor Chris Gregoire but Nancy Pelosi set the gold standard back in 2003.


PERRY says TEXAS knows how to handle illegal immigration???? Really? Maybe if his goal is that it be the GATEWAY to the USA! If my state were as overrun and ruined as his, I might not only wonder how he gets elected but why he hasn't been run out of town on a rail after being tarred and feathered.

The louder they cry no the more sure we can be that it's absafreakinlootley necessary.

I'm with LW regarding biometric ID. In fact, isn't it odd that there are people who instead of building a fence and deporting the invaders would rather use it as a pretext to "foolproof" ID everybody, except the invaders of course, because we don't have 12 million .

Perry is a drug dealer and needs to be put in a mexican prison and used as a shemale. by the way if the people in Texas love this little ass maybe all the people in Texas are shemales.( :- ) build the fence or face civil war and you pigs in all parts of government will not like that. any most of the people who war for government are in fact shemales.

Rick, you're a broken record, stuck in the past. Congress has already discussed this, and your opinion has been rejected. Further, I don't think Texans elected you to listen to your opinions, you were elected to listen to theirs. So stop with the opinions already and get to work. The fence IS the law. And Rick, you claim to have your own blueprint for securing the border, but there's no action on that score, either. You have the authority, where's your "boots"? (crickets chirping...)

people the time is coming when people like perry will order Mexican troops to attack you in your homes.

I have dedicated many months of my time to prepare a report of sorts on the DRP. What I have discovered is that the entire fate of Texas is connected to the Surcharge Program. This is because the money from the Unconstitutional program is earmarked for the Tran-Texas Corridor, which is a strategic segment of what is to become a Super Corridor that spans the entire North American Continent. The state is suspending people's license over not paying an excessive surcharge fee that is in addition to what you agree to in court. What's more is the money is going to pay for the Corridor projects, without consent or knowledge of the People or Congress! I believe that spreading the word would enable individuals to better deal with the negative effects that the TX DRP has had on their lives, as well as have a say in their own future.
