Gov. Rick Perry says he's deploying as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border after growing tied of "lip service" from the federal government.

This is for Obama and his 'MISGUIDED' supporters

TITLE 8--ALIENS AND NATIONALITY
CHAPTER 12--IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY
SUBCHAPTER II--IMMIGRATION
Part VIII--General Penalty Provisions
Sec. 1326. Reentry of removed aliens

(a) In general

Subject to subsection (b) of this section, any alien who--
(1) has been denied admission, excluded, deported, or removed or
has departed the United States while an order of exclusion,
deportation, or removal is outstanding, and thereafter
(2) enters, attempts to enter, or is at any time found in, the
United States, unless (A) prior to his reembarkation at a place
outside the United States or his application for admission from
foreign contiguous territory, the Attorney General has expressly
consented to such alien's reapplying for admission; or (B) with
respect to an alien previously denied admission and removed, unless
such alien shall establish that he was not required to obtain such
advance consent under this chapter or any prior Act,

shall be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or
both.

(b) Criminal penalties for reentry of certain removed aliens

Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, in the case of any

(1) whose removal was subsequent to a conviction for commission

alien shall be fined under title 18, imprisoned not more than 10

of an aggravated felony, such alien shall be fined under such title,
imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both;
(3) who has been excluded from the United States pursuant to

section 1182(a)(3)(B) of this title or who has been removed from the
United States pursuant to the provisions of subchapter V of this
chapter, and who thereafter, without the permission of the Attorney
General, enters the United States, or attempts to do so, shall be
fined under title 18 and imprisoned for a period of 10 years, which
sentence shall not run concurrently with any other sentence.

Is it really that hard to enforce the laws we already have

For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

Not sure what he has planned at this point... right now it looks like surveillance. Did not indicate if he would work with the feds.

He asked for 1,000 National Guard troops - obviously was denied by the Administration.

It won't make any difference. We need a LOT more than that, and a federal government willing to enforce the law.

This is like trying to stop a dam from leaking by putting a wad of chewed bubble gum on a crack you could put your entire body through.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the governor of a state have the authority and right to form a militia? I am pretty sure you could find several thousand volunteers in the state of Texas.

If the Guards do anything Obama doesn't approve of, Obama will nationalize them and take them out from under the Governor's control. This could be what Perry is wanting Obama to do though. That would further turn the people against Obama.

Obama and Holder just love to trample on states' rights and sadly, they have far too many left-wing activist judges who agree with them

Perry's been governor for 14 years and now all of a sudden he's concerned about illegal immigration? This coming from the same guy who supported and signed into law legislation that guarantees in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. Perry's talking out of both sides of his mouth again. Must be preparing for his next presidential fail.

He most probably is but if that's what it take, power to him. Obama certainly isn't going to do anything.
