Quotes

Darby continued, "Attorney General Abbott has a very decent plan for border security and I commend him for the effort, as I do Governor Perry for his. I also understand that both General Abbott and Governor Perry are using the Rio Grande Valley sector as an example for what can be done across Texas' border with Mexico, but I sure do wish they would acknowledge that the other four sectors of the Texas border are so open. Saying we are securing the border, when in actuality we are only securing one-fourth, does not help and only reinforces dominant left-of-center false narratives that the border region is already okay. It is not okay."
Joe Nixon, Sullivan's attorney, said by phone that they were "pleased the Ethics Commission finally, after almost 30 months of inactivity, issued a final ruling."
"What we want is for Perry to put the Guard on the border, and everybody says, `Oh no, it’s the president’s job and the federal government needs to fund it.’ But it’s just not going to happen whether we like it or not, it’s not going to happen. We can wish for it all day long, but in the end, we need to just pay for it, suck it up and pay for it. Texas has the money. We have an overage in the state budget.""
"This line of Texas coast is our first line of defense against tropical storms and hurricanes. The marsh, dunes, play a crucial role in protecting the local communities. It’s our barrier" Justin Rhodes with Texas Parks and Wildlife said
