Olson: Perry right to deploy National Guard to Texas border
This surge of children flooding into the US from Central America is a direct result of Obama’s failed policies. I support Rick Perry’s decision.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in support of Governor Perry's announcement that he has deployed 1,000 National Guard troops to help manage the surge of Central American children flooding into the Texas southern border:
"This surge of children flooding across Mexico into the US from Central America is a direct result of the failed policies and political agenda of the Obama Administration. The Obama White House refuses to enforce existing laws and the result has compromised the security of the State of Texas and our nation. Governor Perry was right to deploy our National Guard to address a national security crisis of this president's making. Texas taxpayers however should not have to foot this bill alone. I urge President Obama to approve the request to help manage the cost of this humanitarian crisis."
