Texas Sending Troops to the Border

Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced Monday that he will send up to 1,000 armed National Guard troops over the next month to protect the southern border due to the Obama Administration’s “lip service” on the illegal immigration crisis.

Perry, who seems to be one of the few political leaders taking the problem seriously, said the troops will not be targeting unaccompanied children crossing the border, but they will be aiming to combat the criminal drug cartels that have been trafficking children north and virtually throwing them across the border to keep the Border Patrol occupied.

“I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor. We are too good of a country,” Perry said.
