Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has stated that President Barack Obama should be impeached due to his handling of the most recent crisis on the United States' southern border.
In a column posted on Breitbart.com on Tuesday, Palin explained her reasons for wanting President Obama impeached.
President Barack Obama has finally agreed to meet with Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry over the raging border crisis after Perry rejected a Monday offer from the White House to greet the president on the tarmac when he arrives in Austin Wednesday.
Perry's office revealed in a Wall Street Journal report that the White House had invited the governor to greet the president on the tarmac but he declined the offer. Instead, Perry again requested a meeting with Obama to discuss the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. border from Central America.
"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," Perry wrote in a letter to the president Monday, according to WSJ. "I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting to discuss this critical issue." more >>
Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are Mexican. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are old to enough to even know what's happening to them. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are looking to do Americans harm, nor are they carrying diseases or have gang affiliations. But every illegal invader has gained access through Mexico, and Mexico has allowed the attacks on our border.
It's clear. We are at war with Mexico.
Drug cartels have long since run amok and with abandon, driving further into US sovereign territory. Without regard for life - their own nor anyone else's - they threaten to kill ranchers and others who live on the border, telling them to look the other way when they engage their drug smuggling operations. more >>
Are the thousands of illegal immigrant kids housed in detention facilities happy and well fed -- or are they living in disease-infested compounds shrouded in secrecy?
Well, it depends on whom you ask.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seems to think the children coming across the southern border are remarkably healthy. It's a sentiment shared by BCFS -- the Texas-based agency formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services contracted to run camps at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Oklahoma. more >>
Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry told members of the U.S. Homeland Security Committee Thursday afternoon that the illegal immigrants who've flooded the border since October must be sent back home.
Perry told committee members who toured a facility in McAllen and other centers in the state, where immigrants are being housed temporarily, that returning the children and adults who are entering the U.S. illegally will send a message to others to not embark on the dangerous and possibly deadly journey.
"Some may think that allowing them to stay here is the more humane option; I assure you it's not," Perry asserted. "Nobody is doing any of these children the slightest favor by delaying a rapid return to their countries of origin." more >>
Texas officials are calling on the Obama administration for help, reporting that large numbers of illegal immigrant children are overwhelming the U.S.-Mexico border and effectively turning U.S. military bases into refugee camps.
"We are facing a escalating refugee and national security crisis. Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I'd see this in the United States of America," said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, according to Fox News on Thursday.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has also called on President Barack Obama to secure the border, noting that he has deployed state resources to boost border security. more >>
