Gov. Perry asks for Border Help

Gov. Perry once again has made a request to Homeland Security and while Janet Napolitano once ran a border state, she doesn't seem too concerned. Perry has every reason to be concerned as violence pours over the border into Texas.

He has requested 1,000 fresh troops and more surveillance.

"How many Americans will have to die before our federal government takes serious action along the Texas-Mexico border?” Perry spokeswoman Allison Castle said this afternoon. "The administration has been reviewing the governor's request for 1,000 National Guard troops to support local law enforcement along the border for over a year. It’s time for the federal government to allocate the appropriate resources to the Texas-Mexico border.”
