Perry sends National Guard to Texas border

Governor Rick Perry has ordered 1,000 members of the National Guard to the Texas border stating that "there can be no national security without border security."

Perry faults the White House of federal inaction and empty promises and states that the placement will "tackle this crisis head-on."

White House press secretary Josh Earnest responded to the move by saying the border needs to be secured on sustained basis, and not through a temporary National Guard deployment.

    Yup. Although I guess maybe we shouldn't begrudge SA their clickbait articles. Controversy --> pageviews --> ad dollars.
