Perry bills feds $350M for immigrant inmates – Houston Chronicle

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry has asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to reimburse Texas $350 million to cover costs for jailing illegal immigrants.

In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the top-tier Republican presidential candidate blamed the federal government for not securing the border with Mexico, allowing illegal immigrants to cross over and use taxpayer-funded resources

  1. Note that I edited the cuss words.
    The Governor has always been focused on securing the border to keep illegals out in the first place. We spend $100 million or more every year of Texas’ tax funds in an effort to control the border and the Governor keeps the pressure on DC to increase their efforts. We have 1200 miles of a border, a river that winds back and forth, of the 2000 miles that connect to Mexico. However, the Feds only give us 1/3 or less of the very limited man power that they allow.
