Gov. Perry: Immigration Crisis ‘An Absolute Overflowing Mess’
Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) was on “Hannity” tonight, where he said the immigration crisis is “an absolute overflowing mess.”
Perry said there has been some success in shutting down illegal activities with these immigration surges, but the states just don’t have the resources for this situation.
“Number one, it’s not the state’s responsibility to be dealing with this issue. We’re doing our part to make sure we can keep our citizens as safe as we can. But the federal government is just absolutely failing. We either have an incredibly inept administration or they’re in on this somehow,” he said.
Perry said he’s concerned because if there’s a major event – like a hurricane – in Texas, the facilities where he would usually send evacuees are filled with illegal immigrants.
