Lawmaker: Texas to Send 1,000 Guardsmen to Border

Christopher Sherman and Will Weissert, AP, July 21, 2014

Gov. Rick Perry, a vocal critic of the White House’s response to the surge of children and families entering the U.S. illegally, plans to deploy as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border, a local lawmaker confirmed Monday.

Perry, who is mulling a second presidential run after his 2012 bid flamed out in a series of public gaffes, spent part of the weekend in Iowa, where he questioned President Barack Obama’s commitment to securing the border and said Texas would do so if the federal government did not.

State Rep. Terry Canales said he was briefed by his staff Sunday following a conference call with the governor’s office, the Texas National Guard and the state Department of Public Safety. Perry’s office hasn’t commented, but he is scheduled to make the announcement Monday afternoon at the state Capitol in Austin.

More than 3,000 Border Patrol agents currently work in the region, and Perry has repeatedly asked Obama to send the National Guard to the border. Much of the area has been overwhelmed in recent months by tens of thousands of unaccompanied children illegally entering the U.S.

As governor, Perry is commander in chief of Texas military forces unless those forces have already been mobilized by the White House. President George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to the border in 2006, and Obama eventually extended that deployment while ordering a second wave of National Guard forces to Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico in 2010. But the second round saw reduced numbers of troops, and most of their work was limited to air patrols in counterdrug operations.

Perry announced last month that Texas would steer another $1.3 million each week to the Department of Public Safety to assist in border security through at least the end of the year. {snip}

On previous border deployments, National Guard soldiers have served in support roles–administrative, intelligence gathering–while the Border Patrol expanded its ranks. Some National Guard troops already participate in counter-drug operations on the border, though they don’t have arrest powers.

    Unfortunately, this is just window dressing. One thousand troops is enough for maybe El Paso alone. Their border with Mexico extends 1241 miles. Considering the Guard would need three 8-hour shifts, that is equal to one man for every 4 miles.

    I realize they would work in conjunction with Border Patrol and use technology but it still is woefully inadequate.

    We need permanent bases on the border and a full US military presence.

    • DonReynolds

      The First Armored Division of the US Army…..the only standing armor division…..is based now at Ft. Bliss…..El Paso, Texas, within sight of the border.
      Yes, Luca…..we need several more permanent bases on the border. They are on the payroll all over the country. They need some fresh air and sunshine on the Rio Grande. (The Air Force has had a training base at Del Rio. But I am not sure if it is still open.)

      • Bossman

        Having a standing army on the border between two friendly trading nations doesn’t make any sense.

        • Long Live Dixie

          Correction – having a standing army sit on the border and watch a tide of invaders roll by doesn’t make any sense.

        • RisingReich

          You’re still here?

          “Friendly trading nations” – sure – Mexico sends us disease ridden, worthless, low-IQ, murdering, raping, drunken driving, La Raza supporting invaders whom in ‘trade’ undercut our middle class, displace our middle class both economically and physically, threaten our children, inflate our taxes to pay for ‘benefits’ just so these scumbag invaders can then turn around and further harm our economy by sending ‘remittances’ back to the ‘homeland’.

          I’m going to say this to you again. Stop agitating to bring your ‘brothers’ and the home country’s squalor here. Go to Mexico where you obviously belong and long to return to.

          You make yourself out to be a GD fool carrying on here.

          • Greg Thomas

            He cannot help himself, he’s an anchor baby. I’m certain of it.

          • Bossman

            And you certainly do not understand anything about international relations.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            When someone disagrees with you, they “do not understand anything about” the subject matter?

            I try to read everyone’s comments very carefully here. I don’t think anything could induce me to say that Rising Reich was as ignorant as you state.

            It does not reflect well on you.

          • 1G25

            Read more carefully.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            Will do! Thanks, Bro.

          • Dale McNamee

            The choreographed “flood” of “children fleeing violence”, planned by Mexico & Guatemala and possibly Honduras, invading the US, REALLY IMPROVES “international relations”,doesn’t it ?

          • DonReynolds

            My favorite book on the subject is “A Diplomatic History of the American People” by Thomas Bailey (Stanford University). I use the 10th edition, but I am sure the most recent is available. Great read.

        • Martel733

          You would be right if money exchanged for disease was a fair trade.

        • Brian

          We don’t need a standing army on the Canadian border.

          • Alexandra1973

            LOL I posted before I scrolled down.

        • Manaphy

          Mexico is, for all intents and purposes, a hostile nation. It sends its nationalists into our borders. It has facilitated the destruction of numerous American schools, hospitals, and other public institutions. It demands that we support its citizens in destroying our nation. I disagree with an Army on the Mexican border, for every Mestizo invader who penetrates our border, we should send a missile into Mexico.

          • Whitetrashgang

            We should charge Mexico 100,000 dollars for their up keep also.

          • Dale McNamee

            The same goes for El Salvador, Guatemala, & Honduras…

            And for every “pro-amnesty” Latino/Hispanic group here, especially La Raza (Everything for the Race…)…

            And we should try to recoup the money that the illegals send “back home” to pay…

          • DonReynolds

            …..for each one.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Yes fixed it.

        • Alexandra1973

          I don’t think we have a standing army on the US/Canadian border.

          • Bossman

            Why should we? Standing armies at borders exist only after a state of war has been declared between nations.

          • propagandaoftruth

            States also deploy armed forces to their borders to guard against invasions of alien peoples.

            Ever read “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”? Focus in on those parts where the Empire started getting slack on the borders and letting in thousands of aliens because…

            1. Things were hellish outside the Empire and…

            2. Rome was in it’s slack and lazy period and ruled by idiots who didn’t feel like enforcing border security.

            Yeah, sure it was a lot more complicated than that. The smelly, crude, disease ridden barbarians the Romans let in were Germans, not Aztecs…

            Big difference in the big picture, patrone…

          • Bossman

            So hostile armed barbarian hordes fighting against ancient Rome are the same as migrant workers from our friendly neighboring nations? How so?

          • brior

            Migrant workers?? Try using the correct term, Illegal ALIEN. Whitwashing the subject does not make it acceptable to anyone here.

          • DonReynolds

            Lemmie guess……”migrant workers” that rape, murder and pillage…..kill 25 Americans a day, and a host of other crimes?

          • They aren’t here to work; they’re here for free stuff.

          • propagandaoftruth

            When the Goths, a once proud Germanic people who had resided around the Crimea for a century or two at least, showed up at the border of the Roman world sometime in the mid 4th century Anno Domini, fleeing from the degradations of the narco-lords of their day, the Huns, they consisted of some 60,000, to 100,0000 starving, stinking, men women and children. Others of their Folk were scattered about, including some of the warriors, but this represented the largest single gathering of the remnants of the Goth nation.

            The Romans had allowed them to enter the empire on condition they gave up their arms, and so the starving mob was largely defenseless. For a while they were hosed near the border in detention facilities where local Romans visited, trading food dogs for their more attractive children. Eventually the logistics of feeding some hundred thousand people, a nation on the run, defeated and desperate, began to tell. The Roman Homeland Security guy sent the Goths to the nearest city, without informing the city. Recent Tea Party protests and all, I guess.

            Well when the gatekeepers saw the horde of smelly Goths approaching, no warning, he closed the gates and sounded the alarm pronto. The spokesman for the refugees, an activist in La Raza Aryana or something, tried to explain to the racist Romans that they’d been promised food, shelter, medical care, maybe even a place to swim and cell phones or something.

            When the gatekeeper still refused to open up, the poor Goths, near starvation, almost weaponless, stormed the gates, climbing up World War Z style and overwhelming the pathetic few Border Patrolmen posted along. They then proceeded to rape, burn and steal everything they could, in fact freeing all the slaves, which included of course some of the pretty girls and boys who’d recently been traded for food dogs. Oh, and the weapons and armor the found! Finest in the empire.

            Eventually, after kicking Roman butt, getting hired by the Romans, being betrayed by the Romans – go figger – and then going ape-poop again…

            They eventually ended up celebrating karmic vengeance in Rome itself, a powerful and prosperous Germanic people numbering in the hundreds of thousands likely, counting all the freed and armed slaves they picked up along the way…

            If only we were being invaded by Goths, Patrone…

          • saxonsun

            Yes, and Gibbon also placed much of the blame on the rise of Christianity…and he was right.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Probly, or it was broken already and Christianity was the mason jar that held the old traditions until we could recover. Take your pick.

          • Alexandra1973

            You must be ignorant of the Constitution. The government is supposed to guard against invaders. Mexicans and Central Americans are invading. Nuff said.

          • Bossman

            Migrant workers from friendly neighboring nations are not and cannot be invaders. The U.S. Constitution has a totally different idea of what an invasion is.

          • Reverend Bacon

            Article 4: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

            Yes, the courts have been rather slow in recognizing this, but the US Constitution is quite clear.

            What we need, at least metaphorically, is not the US Constitution but the USS Constitution. I’m pretty sure that would stop it.

          • brior

            Hey, Trollman back to La Racist with you!

          • DonReynolds

            At the time the US Constitution was written, it had exactly the same idea of invasion, by exactly the same Amerindians. The Indian wars continued until the 20th century. Same Indians.

          • Bossman

            During the Indian wars, it was the USA doing the invasion. The Indians just want to stay in their traditional homelands and to hold on to their hunting grounds. The USA invaders called themselves pioneers, settlers, traders, prospectors, etc.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            I see this same, lame moronic argument used frequently by anti-Whites to justify and rationalize their genocidal agenda against the White Race.

            You have drunk deeply from the well of ignorance and have obviously been brainwashed by your Marxist handlers to spout off anti-White mantras.

            No one is coming here to live in tee-pees, they are coming here to steal what the White man created and built

            It’s become increasingly clear that White Europeans were the first humans on the North American continent:

            Daily Telegraph:

            Stone-age Europeans ‘were the first to set foot on North America’

            Stone-age Europeans were the first to set foot on North America, beating American Indians by some 10,000 years, new archaeological evidence suggests.

            Adding to the weight of evidence is fresh analysis of a stone knife unearthed in the US in 1971 that revealed it was made of French flint.

            http //www dailymail co uk/sciencetech/article-2107418/Could-tools-belonging-Stone-Age-hunters-U-S-east-coast-finally-answer-really-discovered-America html#ixzz2iGmjTdxB

            And then there are those pesky 7- 8,000 year old human remains found in a bog in Florida:

            After comparing the Windover DNA to present European peoples, Dr. Lorenz said: ‘I went back to the screen and I looked at the sequences again. The first person’s DNA, it looked European. When I looked at the third, fourth and fifth, it was slightly different from the first tow, but they looked European.’

            Dr. Gregory from Cornell also stated that DNA samples taken from the brains of the 7,000-8,000 year old Florida bog people prove European origin.

            http //www washingtonpost com/national/health-science/radical-theory-of-first-americans-places-stone-age-europeans-in-delmarva-20000-years-ago/2012/02/28/gIQA4mriiR_story html?hpid=z5

            Now go tell the AmerIndians go to back to Siberia since they came later.

          • silviosilver

            Mass immigration from Latin America is complete disaster for the United States. It doesn’t matter whether the people causing the disaster are referred to as “migrant workers” or “invaders.” It’s the devastation they cause that is at issue. In such a scenario any and all resources should be deployed to solve the problem.

            But all this is simply obvious. If you’re going to play dumb at least make some effort to obfuscate the basics. (For tips, see John Engelman.)

          • Bossman

            I don’t believe that at all. There is a lot of Latin American migration to southern Florida and according to NY Times, this is what keeping the place vibrant and afloat.

          • 1G25

            Ignorant.

          • DonReynolds

            No state of war with Russia or China…..ever.

            But we have had a rather serious war with Mexico over the little matter of “shedding American blood on American soil.” It was a good enough reason in 1845.

        • Cid Campeador

          That’s true if you REALLY believe that Mexico and the US are “friendly”.

          • DonReynolds

            Pancho Villa was the last armed invasion of the US in 1916. Attacked and burned the town of Columbus, New Mexico, and murdered civilians, plus a detachment of the US 13th Cavalry Regiment.

            There were three other unconfirmed attacks by Pancho Villa….

            1) On 15 May, it is claimed that they attacked Glenn Springs, Texas, killing a civilian and wounding three American soldiers. Two Mexicans were estimated killed.

            2) On 15 June, bandits killed four soldiers at San Ygnacio, Texas and wounded 5 soldiers; 6 Mexicans killed.

            3) On 31 July, one American soldier and a U.S. customs inspector were killed at Fort Hancock Texas. {The two dead Americans included a soldier from the 8th US Cavalry and Customs Inspector Robert Wood}. One American was wounded and three Mexicans were reported killed, plus three Mexicans captured by Mexican government troops.

        • Reverend Bacon

          Pretending that we’re friendly with Mexico doesn’t make any sense. They have flouted our laws at every turn. They have pressured Obama to do fewer deportations, leading him to admit that they do very few, but they just started counting differently to appease the patriots while allowing the Mexicans and their allies to the south to continue to invade us. They have even offered incentives to their people to violate our laws. Look up all the scholarships that the Mexican Consulates have proffered upon their citizens living here as illegal invaders. These acts of war have gone unanswered by our leaders, but not unnoticed by our people.

          • Bossman

            They may look like acts of war to you, but like it or not, North American integration is continuing to grow. All the big U.S. auto manufacturers are expanding their facilities in Mexico. USA investments in Mexico continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

          • Reverend Bacon

            Yes, I don’t doubt that there are collaborators. And there’s a difference between private industry building factories (a business transaction) and a government dumping its excess population on an unsuspecting populace who haven’t been informed of the true costs of allowing the hegemony to stand. The latter is called “an invasion.” The criminal in Washington is called “a mole.”

            We’d much rather pay an extra 50 cents for lettuce now than pay to house, feed, clothe, medicate, educate, and incarcerate them forever and ever amen. In retrospect, we should have said the same about cotton, but that ship has sailed.

          • DonReynolds

            It certainly looks like an act of war when a Mexican military helicopter flies over the border into Texas and fires upon two Border Patrol agents in their marked patrol car.

        • 1G25

          What’s “friendly” about a country born and bred to hate Caucasians and which recently collaborated with other Central American countries to operate an “above-ground railroad” to expedite the passage of illegal aliens into our country?

        • Dale McNamee

          Mexico’s behavior towards the US isn’t what I’d describe as friendly…

        • DonReynolds

          He He…..what does not make any sense is to not resist invasion by another country…..even if they are a friendly trading nation.

          We have never been at war with China (most favored nation, when it comes to friendly trade), or Russia, but we have considerable military assets parked as close their border as we can.

          Yes, we have had a war with Mexico…..read all about it. More recently, we have had wars with Germany and Japan, but we have military assets positioned to defend those countries. Confusing, eh?

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Will they get desk jobs fake bullets and wash cars like last time someone sent the National Guard down to the border?

      What are they up against?

      July 20, 2014:

      RINCON PENINSULA, Texas — U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told FoxNews com.

      Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons.

      ’We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were ricocheting around them,’ said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a first-hand look at the border situation.

      • Sick of it

        A better response would be artillery fire until all of the attackers were dead.

        • Anglo

          Agree. The US is under siege. Border agents have been fired upon. It’s time to fire back, and we have the weaponry.

          • RisingReich

            It’s becoming increasingly clear the weaponry will be turned on the citizen ‘rebels’ whom don’t support this invasion.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Yep, and not just with artillery shells and rockets equipped with proximity fuses that will detonate them 100 feet above the ground. That would treat invaders to what Iraqi’s called “steel rain.”

        • Martel733

          air strikes

          • Sick of it

            Technically, mortars could do the trick but for much less in the way of cost. Remember, every dollar saved is another dollar that can be spent on defending the border elsewhere.

          • Martel733

            Mortars cant be transported quickly, air strikes would cause fear of any plane near the border. Remember every dollar saved is another dollar of debt the left can throw away.

      • DonReynolds

        Obama’s top domestic advisor Cecilia Munoz is a former LaRaza vice president and the lead person on the “border crisis”.
        As long as LaRaza writes the Mission Statement and the Rules of Engagement for the Border Patrol and the National Guard, I am certain they will be practically worthless.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          Celia Munoz was a one-time lobbyist for the hard-left racist, anti-American La Raza organization- so she and Obama are on the same page.

          The Senate immigration reform bill contains a provision to blanket La Raza with $100 MILLION dollars per year—renewed annually. And also embeds a protection racket for latino lawmakers in US laws—protecting them from prosecution for committing crimes in office.

          Any friend of LaRaza is an enemy of the American people. These anti-White marxists deserve nothing but the lamppost treatment.

    • Bossman

      Why spend billions of Dollars which supposedly the USA doesn’t have when a migration accord with Mexico and Central America would solve the problem. Just make it easier for them to come and go.

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        With automatic birthright citizenship for the children of pregnant illegal aliens. What a brilliant idea! Just let them come, have an anchor baby and go… Sounds like a plan.

        • Bossman

          Sooner or later, the USA will have no choice but to sign a migration accord with those countries. They are not going anywhere and their presence will continue to loom larger as time goes by.

          • RisingReich

            Sooner or later, people like those seen in over 300 cities over the weekend protesting your ‘people’s’ invasion are going to take things into their own hands.

            I suggest when that happens you’d better make yourself scarce, b/c agitators like yourself will be pretty far up on the list.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Indeed, pro-invader agitators will be targets sooner or later.

            You can bet others are making lists too………

          • DonReynolds

            Most certainly. In my estimation, the only modern comparison would be Northern Ireland or the Spanish Civil War.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            I think it will be more along the lines of the Bolshevik Revolution…….whose ring leaders drew up lists of millions to be killed.

          • Martel733

            No, sooner or later there will be ethnic cleansing due to their adulteration of our economy and culture.

          • Bossman

            The USA is not Eastern Europe. No such thing is going to happen. What is going to happen is just more trade, more investments in Mexico by U.S. companies and more North American integration.

          • DonReynolds

            We will have a choice as long as we are alive and armed. If Mexico likes them, they can let them settle in Mexico…..but the truth is, the Mexican authorities have been much harsher than the US Border Patrol ever thought of being.

      • Luca

        Because they never “GO” they just keep inviting their relatives over to suck up the gravy train.

      • Martel733

        they would never go.

        Sounds like the kind of reasoning that led to South Africa’s demise. You are missing the point, of course.

Are you interchangeable with this man?

      • DonReynolds

        …..or just seal the border. Cheaper still.

    • Sick of it

      Ancient nations settled their armies on their borders in order to prevent invasion. They killed the invaders too…they did not hold their hands and give them food/water/shelter.

    • I imagine even this number would be useful if they watched the roads. This would force the invaders out into the desert to cross, and last I checked, it’s still July; too hot to cross a desert.

      • Martel733

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            One of the good things about more coming and forming concentrations is that eventually the whites retreat and concentrate as well. If certain areas become totally nonwhite, it seems like it would increase the possibility of splitting from them and forming something closer to an ethno state. Even with HUD doing its level best to make sure whites are not allowed to separate, we still will.

          • Yes, this is a hopeful possibility, although social service agencies are now sending ‘inner-city’ people out into White suburbs and as demographics continue to change, not just because of where people live, but because of the vastly different birthrates, we will have fewer Red States at each national election, and federal governments increasingly determined to break up large concentrations of Whites, to get at their tax dollars and to prevent their political organizing. On the other hand, another hopeful possibility is that as the US keeps fragmenting, the federal government itself will start to fragment as it becomes more and more like the Soviet Union, with fewer and fewer people believing in the Utopian dream that has become so drastically different from the godforsaken reality they see all around them.

    • DonReynolds

      I have read that 70 percent of the Border Patrol are dealing with the border surge people and no longer involved in patroling the border. Sending the Guard to the border area should about wipe out all Border Patrol activities.
      The Border Patrol must stop patroling the border in order to escort and protect the NGs…..who will likely carry no weapons, and most certainly no ammo….and have no ability to apprehend the illegals. The last time, they set up a check point on a country road and were confronted by cartel drug smugglers (who were armed). The NG ran away and hid in the brush until they could be rescued by the Border Patrol. Yes, I know…..it is humiliating. But what do you expect when LaRaza writes the Mission Statement and the Rules of Engagement?
      The best use for the Shoe Repair Battalion would be to take over the bottle warming and diaper changing, so the Border Patrol can go back to their normal duties.

Hopefully in 10 or 20 years these politicians won’t even be able to draw their paychecks anymore because their sure isn’t going to be anyone left in this country who actually works and pays taxes.

    Israel built a fence around its territory, the number of infiltrators dropped like a stone to zero and now the Israeli government is expulsing the illegal immigrants to Africa.

    They accomplished this in less than four years, all the while the US is getting nowhere with its approach.

    • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

      “…the number of infiltrators dropped like a stone.”
      It did, to the chagrin of Israel’s tiny left minority. A marvelous video account of Israel’s methods of dealing with “infiltrators” (their term for illegal aliens from Africa) has been been produced by Israeli videographer David Sheen. Google “Israel’s War on Africans.”

    • India also built a fence along their border with Bangladesh, Myanmar and Pakistan to keep out illegal aliens (and terrorists in the latter case). I have a classic Bon-style series of pictures here.

      #1: Israel’s fence along the West Bank.
      #2: Israel’s Sinai fence along the border with Egypt.
      #3: India’s brightly-lit fence along the Pakistani border, seen from space (the orange line).
      #4: India’s fence along the Bangladesh border.
      #5: India’s fence along the Myanmar border.

      • Guest

        You can soon add the Bulgaria-Turkey fence, which is nearing completion even in semi-functional Bulgaria. It is meant to protect the border from Syrian infiltrators. Although it covers less than a tenth of the border (30 km), the most difficult part to survey, it indicates a policy shift in Europe. The EU wanted to prevent its construction, but the Bulgarian government gave them the finger.

      It’s because the US has no desire to secure the border. if they did, it would have been done long ago. It’s really that simple.

  • Garrett Brown

    Good to hear but hesitant to believe they will do what they’re supposed to.

  • Since I live in south Texas, let me give you a short ground report. The problem is that the damn whites in this area (around San Antonio) love their Mexican laborers too much. The turkeys that make it over the border and into this area start making what to them is real money right away. It’s whites that hire them.

    We need to jail anyone caught hiring these brown skins–minimum sentence 6 months.
    Rick Perry is rumored to love gay young Mexican men, as documented in a book. Whether true or not, he certainly works for the power elites, who want the Mexicans here to work the jobs. Perry is clearly aiming to run for President again and this move is nothing but window dressing as other commenters have noted.

    I would love to see some big, ferocious police dogs turned loose to run up and down the border. Once word got out about the dogs, the more coward Mexies would stay home. Of course, machine gun nests, tanks, and other assorted weapons deployed in force would also do the job, but police dogs love to sniff out Mexicans so why not let them have some fun.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Personally, I think mini-guns or machines guns rigged to destroy anything that’s warm and moving should be set all along the border, pointing into Mexico. They should be behind belts of “Bouncing Betty” mines that when triggered the main charge hops six feet into the air before annihilates everyone within 15 meters or so. We could also put some cluster bombs to use as “scatterable” mines, the Mexicans will find them impossible to disarm, let alone find before setting them off, each one as deadly as a mortar shell. Behind both should be armed troops, armored fighting vehicles and armed helicopters equipped with air to air missiles and chain guns to shoot Mexican helicopters out of the air when they intrude into U.S. airspace. While this is being done, all the Hispanic illegals should be rounded up, thrown in camps and their gang bangers put to death while the rest are tattooed and then sent back in chains.

      • Bossman

        Stuff like what you’re describing can only happen after two countries have declared war on each other. Mexico, on the other hand, is a friendly trading partner of the USA and that trade is valued to be over 1 billion Dollars per day.

          As long as national suicide is profitable, then I guess I’m all right with it.

          • It will always be profitable when it isn’t your country getting ruined while you fill your pockets with money. History repeats itself…it never stops.

        • A “friendly” trading partner would not use our country as a dumping ground for its unskilled, illiterate poor.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          Mexico and their brown invaders HAVE declared war openly against white Americans. Make no mistake, no friendly trading partner would be doing what Mexico is doing.

        • RisingReich

          Bon below is correct. These invaders ARE INDEED armed – with diseases. If this keeps up, it’s going to make Al-Qaeda awfully jealous because the round n browns will have accomplished what they couldn’t – a biological weapon disbursement all across the US.

      It makes me sick when white people hire these goons. They like to hang out in front of Home Depot and Lowes. There was a funny video on Youtube years back of a guy who picked up a bunch of laborers in front of Lowes or whatever and drove them straight to the INS office. They ran like cockroaches LOL.
      When you need work done on your property you hire a white man for that job. You ask if they hire only English speaking Americans. I saw some landscaping truck in my white neighborhood the other day. It read Rasmussen on the side. Inside the truck were a bunch of dark browns. Rasmussen my @$$. I saw some others eyeballing me as I walked up the sidewalk. I yelled out “WHAT THE #$#[email protected]! ARE YOU LOOKING AT?” I hate these people. Anyone who brings them into white neighborhoods to do “work” will be on the list when this is over. It used to be that a real man did that kind of work – lawnmowing, tree trimming, cutting trees. When I was a kid, my dad did all that himself. A real man doesn’t hire someone to do that. Women or elderly people would hire the neighbor’s kids or their own grandkids to do that work. What the hell is the matter with these people?

        Some people just don’t have the time, or have too much money to do that. But yes, between the choice of hiring a Mexican only and do it myself, I’ll pick the later without hesitating.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      It’s my understanding that Whites enable the Greaseritos more in the drug trade area. I encountered several employees in the defense industry who were chronic, stealth users of methamphetamine. Federal contractors only drug screen an employee upon hire and never test again. The 4th Amendment make targeted drug testing too problematic.

      It is understood that the Mexican, factory-made grade is the most desirable. Although my eye is trained to spot meth users in the workplace, most people don’t have those skills. They just see those people as “Johnny-on-the-spot” and “go-getters”, not people who are jacked-up.

      Meth is also widely used by the college students you encountered as a professor. It’s America’s darkest, best-kept secret.

      • “Federal contractors only drug screen an employee on hire and then never again.”

        That was exactly the case with a former friend who was a TSA passenger screener. He ended up with a meth/extasy addiction from Hell and continued to work for TSA.

      Please get personal contacts of Texas State Guard. We need to do one on one contacts get our people in Texas to actually fight the cartels, drug and illegal immigrant smugglers.

    Nice sentiment, but we’re long past merely stopping illegal immigration, or even all immigration. We would have to start deporting millions to have any real effect on demographics.

    Texas is already 1/3 Tejano, disregarding their BS category of white Hispanic.

    They need more personnel to change nappies and wipe little brown bums.

    Perry is on board with the amnesty crowd. You can’t trust him.

    Because he’s White. The Chicago gangsters are displaying solidarity with their La Raza brothers in Mexico. MS-13 in expensive suits. The Crypts, the Bloods, and MS-13. Tri-partisan unity.

    let’s not forget that Perry referred to those that advocate border security and immigration restriction as “having no heart”. Observing Perry the brave coyote killer over the last few years it is obvious to anyone that he is a rank opportunist.
