Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to announce he will activate the Texas National Guard at a news conference Monday in Austin, said state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen.

Hinojosa did not have details of the effort, but an internal memo from another state official’s office said the governor planned to call about 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley — at a cost of about $12 million per month.

The memo was provided to The Monitor on the condition of anonymity because the information is not yet public.

Troops are expected to enter the area gradually, building up to 1,000 after about a month, the memo said.

ISTOOK: Most border invaders are not children; they’re working age

The Fulford File | To End “Unaccompanied Minor” Scandal, Start Deporting Illegal (And Irresponsible) Parents

While we regular, cash-strapped taxpayers concerned about the well-being of our country stood  on the overpasses Saturday protesting  the total breakdown of our borders, where were a few of our  stalwart conservative spokespeople and politicians? Were they holding anti-illegal immigration  signs  with ‘we the people’  on the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform Amnesty and Border Surge?

No. Senator Ted Cruz, Rep Louie Gohmert, Glenn Beck, and Dana Loesch, among others, were in McAllen, Texas meeting with Rio Grande Catholic Charities Director Sr. Norma Pimentel just weeks after her very public visit with Nancy Pelosi. Not to be outdone by the Democrats, photos onThe Blaze showed the media stars and politicians preparing food, handing out soccer balls and assisting church groups.

Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons.

New data shows the White House has painted a false picture of the Central American migration by hiding a huge spike in “family units” who are illegally crossing the Texas border.

The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014.

But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data, which came out amid a storm of news about the shoot-down of a Malaysian aircraft in Ukraine, delays in failed U.S. nuke talks with Iran, and on Hamas’ continued war against Israel.

Obama’s released recent illegal alien family arrivals: 1 dead, 1 arrested for murder, and tax payers forced to pay for the illegal alien kids, murder trial…

President Obama and Vice President Biden will meet with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador on July 25, the White House announced on Friday.

Obama and Biden will meet with President Otto Pérez Molina of Guatemala, President Salvador Sánchez Cerén of El Salvador and President Juan Hernández of Honduras, to discuss the recent surge of migrants across the U.S. border.

In the meeting, the leaders will discuss how the governments are “cooperating to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration” between the countries “in a spirit of shared responsibility” including “with respect to the return of family units,” a process which began this week for the three Central American countries, according to the White House.

New Obama rule will force your neighborhood to house invaders

Excerpt:

“The way it would work, any zoning that would have a disparate impact on immigrant communities, despite their being based on sensible reflection of good faith and people just wanting to make sure their communities are protected, would be impacted by these regulations,” Fitton said.

For example, if a city’s zoning laws favor home ownership as opposed to renting or favor single-family homes over multifamily apartments, it would be susceptible to allegations of a disparate impact on minorities. That could trigger a lawsuit, which then forces a zoning change and construction of new Section 8, government-subsidized apartments in middle-class suburban neighborhoods.

Federal officials told Pierce County leaders Wednesday that local government resources will not be used to care for hundreds of young, undocumented immigrants who could be sheltered at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

It’s still unclear when or if the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will carry out a proposal to temporarily house Central American children in available space at the South Sound military base.

HHS officials hosted the conference call to answer local questions about the proposal, which was first reported by The News Tribune three weeks ago.

Representatives from Pierce County communities have expressed concerns that the unaccompanied minors might overwhelm local schools, draw on social services, carry viruses or distract from the mission of military units at Lewis-McChord.

They heard assurances that the children:

• Would not attend public schools at Lewis-McChord.

• Would be cared for by contractors hired to provide for their health and security needs.

• Would be screened for illnesses before reaching JBLM.
