It is becoming more than apparent that our leaders and people in the spotlight are starting to take the peoples’ fear of the Obama administration to heart and are starting to stand up and push back. (See Lou Dobbs)
“This is an administration hell-bent on taking America towards a socialist country.” – Governor Perry
Governor Rick Perry spoke in Midland, Texas on Wednesday and made some pretty forthright comments about the administration in D.C. starting with “This administration, I think this administration; its past ‘doesn’t care’ about Texas. I think this administration is interested in punishing us”, in reference to the Alien Transfer and Exit Program and what it means for Presidio, Texas.
The first part of Perry’s remarks focused on what’s called the Alien Transfer and Exit Program, something that he has been talking about for more than a week. Perry describes it as a plan where illegal immigrants who are captured in Arizona are sent to the small Texas town of Presidio and set free. It’s a sign that the Obama administration is trying to punish Texas, Perry said, adding that members of the state’s congressional delegation, as well as his office, weren’t given any warning of the administration’s plans for Presidio.
A few more money quotes from the Governor:
I think it’s time for us to stand up. I think it’s time to make tea parties twice as big as what they were. I think one of our greatest challenges and our greatest works in front of us right now, is to stop this administration in Washington using whatever tools we have at our disposal, whether it’s the courts, or whether its the bully pulpit of the Lt. Governor and Governors’ offices…
