BREAKING: Texas National Guard Being Mobilized to Secure Border


The Washington Post reported early this morning that Texas Governor Rick Perry will dispatch the Texas National Guard to protect the border:

Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo from a state official’s office that it obtained.

…Perry, a potential 2016 Republican presidential contender, has been speaking in Iowa in recent days, promising to take matters into his own hands if President Barack Obama does not act.

“If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it,” Perry said Sunday at a Republican BBQ.
