    “I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,”


    That meeting that you are seeing pictures of were not in Obama's plans when he landed in Texas. It was only scheduled 2 days ago.

    Obama's original plans were to go to some fund raisers and avoid the border. His travel itinerary that was released to the press had plans for less than 1 meeting with Perry on the border crisis.
    From your link!

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Perry has accepted an invitation to a group meeting in Dallas that will include local officials and faith leaders.

    "We thought it made sense here to extend an invitation to Gov. Perry, to allow him to participate in that meeting with other Texans who are seeking to address this situation in a constructive manner," Earnest said. "We're looking forward to Gov. Perry participating in that meeting."

    Seems reasonable enough to me. The WH says the Texas trip had a triple purpose, including fundraising. Jesus Christ, unfortunately ALL presidents do fundraising, some presidents cut brush when we think they should be officiating, some play golf, some go fishing while others shoot pool.

    Easy now, no American welcomes cultural destruction. Drawing attention to the FACT that our border has been left unsecured for decades, and that blaming one party for the fact that it isn't does not equate to a death wish on our culture.

    - When he said what the 3 billion would be used for he said half would be used for increased border control and immigrant processing (I think it was) and the other half would be used for something or other. So what he did was lump border control funding with immigrant processing funding as half, while border control would actually only be around 5% to 10%.
    Pure Obama wordplay.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No one would blame them for trying.
    But we certainly can if they don't.

    The border patrol often waits miles inside the US and does not stop these folks from crossing into the US. Once they are allowed into the US then we enjoy providing them with food, shelter and medical care and "hearings" to determine which can stay. Unless, of course, they are simply turned loose and "expected" to show up for a hearing later.
