Mexico Is Complaining, But Rick Perry Just Showed Them Who’s Boss On The Border

In the weeks since Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his intention to station National Guard members on his state’s southern border, reports indicate that the influx of unaccompanied Central American minors is far from over. Nevertheless, Mexican officials responded late last week to Perry’s move with a curt and highly disapproving statement.

“We’ve been able to shut down illegal activities in certain sectors with our different operations that we’ve had,” he told Glenn Beck last month, indicating that Texas can successfully combat the current threat with or without federal assistance.

Texas deployed about 1,000 guardsmen Thursday to aid in stopping the flow of illegals across the most porous sections of the border.

Reiterating his defense of the bold move, Perry said he went ahead with the deployment after repeatedly calling on the federal government to secure the border and enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

The nation’s foreign ministry stated that Mexico “reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure,” alleging that no immigration threat “exists that justifies this measure taken by the state.”

Furthermore, the statement insists that the arrival of troops “does not contribute in any way” to securing the border.

Mexico criticized the troop mobilization as contrary to America’s claim that it wants to create a “modern, prosperous and safe border.”

With experts predicting that up to 100,000 illegal minors will cross the border into the U.S. this year, however, plenty of anti-amnesty advocates favor Perry’s direct approach to border security.

Some even question the timing of the deployment and a grand jury’s decision to indict Perry with two felony counts pertaining to his alleged coercion of an Austin-area district attorney.

  5. The mexicans have abducted one of our marines who is languishing in one of their prisons and subject to their abuses. Yes, I'm certain the mexican thugs are upset by the fact that our border is to be protected and not overrun by thugs, most defintley does not fit in with the desires and warfare mexicans and the other invading nations have declared on us.
