    Plan would move illegal aliens apprehended in other states through Presidio

    Gov. Rick Perry today sent a letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urging the federal government to stop its plans to transport illegal aliens from other states into Texas solely for the purpose of deportation.

    The Alien Transfer and Exit Program (ATEP), which is scheduled to begin tomorrow, would transport more than 34,000 illegal aliens per year through Presidio.

    “Turning the Presidio area into a way station for the repatriation of illegal immigrants adds responsibility to local authorities and holds the potential of increasing the strain on local and state infrastructure and resources,” Gov. Perry said. “This plan will increase the likelihood that these individuals will immediately cross back into Texas, which is already bearing an uneven burden in dealing with immigration and border security issues along the Texas-Mexico border.”

    Gov. Perry noted this program is a result of the federal government’s continued lack of an effective strategy for dealing with border security.

    It's surprising to me that Napolitano having been a governor of a border state is not aware of the many problems that these states have. She should know how it affects these states to transport illegals via that way and its impact.

    What's wrong with this Perry guy? Why won't he stand up and help. Does he think New Mexico, Arizona, or California is more deserving of the "honor" than Texas?

    He should quit whining and just ask for the necessary money unless he doesn't want them deported because then his landscaping contractors won't have any illegals to hire.
