DALLAS - Gov. Rick Perry is praising the results of his immigration enforcement talks with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.


That's after a steady drumbeat of criticism from Perry about the federal approach toward those enforcement needs and fears that Mexico's drug-related violence might spill into the United States.


According to The Dallas Morning News, Perry told a Washington, D.C., round-table of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Monday that he has "a real good feeling" after his meeting with Napolitano, a
former Arizona governor.


Perry says that Napolitano, as a former border governor, "gets it." He says, "The border can be secured. It takes boots on the ground. It requires technology."

Perry has appealed to the federal government for unmanned drone aircraft and National Guard troops to patrol the border.

People willing to give up their Constitutional rights and Civil liberties and allow the government to intrude into the lives of who ever the wish just to stop illegal immigration is so Un-American.

"Mexico's drug related violence MIGHT spill over the border." Rick, I think that ship has already sailed. The Arizona rancher was murdered here in the U.S.

You aren't going to do anything Governor Perry because you have an election in November and then you will run for President of the U.S. Wouldn't won't anything to get in the way of your aspirations now would you, much less protecting Texas. You'll let Obama do that.

Governor Perry you're an idoit!
