Do Not Deport? Pay Up.

If you want them to stay, you should pay.

Hey folks,

FACT: It is ILLEGAL to be in this Country ILLEGALLY.
FACT: It IS the Federal Government's Job, NOT the States, to enforce Federal Law.
FACT: By the Federal Government REFUSING to do it's Job, States Suffer the Consequences.
FACT: Illegals commit Crimes. Place Financial Burdens on State Governments. Steal away Jobs that Americans are trying to get, because they will work for less and demand little to no benefits.
FACT: Americans are hurt by uncontrolled Illegal Immigration in MANY ways.

So when States start enforcing the Laws of the Land that the Federal Government doesn't want to do for Political Reasons, they have no other choice than to simply throw those here Illegally, in Jail. They do not have the Authority to Deport. Perhaps they should.

So, what to do, what to do? You are RIGHT, even if you have the Federal Government Suing you, to protect YOUR Citizens, and Legal Residents. You, as a State, have a Right to get unreasonable Costs under control. So? What to do with all these Illegals that the Federal Government has made a conscience decision to ignore their Crimes and refuse to do THEIR Job?

Two possibilities. One, and what the Feds under Obama WANT you to do, is NOTHING. Ignore them. Just let them be. Stay in the same situation you are in. Or Two, the only other option you have, Arrest them, and put them in Jail. But then the question come down to, who should pay? Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, thinks it should be the Feds.

According to the AP - Perry bills feds $349M for incarcerating illegals By APRIL CASTRO - Associated Press AP

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for nearly $350 million to cover the costs he says Texas has incurred incarcerating illegal immigrants in state prisons and county jails.

In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Perry reiterated a claim he's often leveled against the federal government: that it's not doing enough to secure the border with Mexico and as a result, has allowed illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. and use taxpayer-funded resources, including the prison system.

The letter was dated Aug. 10, three days before the Republican governor formally announced he is running for president.

Reached after-hours Friday by phone, DHS spokesman Matthew Chandler said he wasn't in position to comment and said he could not confirm that the DHS had even received the letter.
Of course not. They do not want to deal with this issue leading up to an Election. They are plummeting in the polls, and they need all the Votes they can get. Screw America. Screw Americans. They are pandering to the Minority Votes, by allowing a Backdoor Amnesty to take place. Perry wrote in his letter:

"During tough economic times, when communities are making difficult decisions about their own budgets, Texas counties are being asked to cover more than $94.4 million in direct costs related to housing illegal immigrants while the state has been left to cover more than $254.8 million in such costs."

He included a memo from Comptroller Susan Combs in which she supports his calculations but warns that the estimates are conservative.

"The longstanding failure of the federal government to secure our border with Mexico continues to burden local communities and resources in Texas," Perry wrote. "Because there are not enough troops on the ground, illegal immigrants are able to penetrate the Texas border every day and use taxpayer-funded resources."
He is not alone here.

Perry is not the first governor to try to bill the federal government for the costs of incarcerating illegal immigrants. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, sued the DHS in February seeking compensation for incarceration costs, among other things. And Napolitano herself, who preceded Brewer as Arizona governor, regularly sent the Justice Department invoices seeking such reimbursement before she became Homeland Security secretary.
{Laughing} So she should KNOW. Right? It's not a hard concept to understand. It really isn't. If you want them to stay, you should pay. If you do NOT want to pay, then DO YOUR JOB! And it really IS, just that simple.
