But right now what does it.
Voted -- or insulting Maine's Republican governor Paula -- sending this message to America's.
-- welfare program is Camelot thing arrest stay government.
To my children.
Are I'll tell you cannot say it.
Waterloo -- why people love -- here he would.
Several major employer did he go too far Texas governor Rick Perry joins us -- and -- -- governor good evening led Evian -- I'm glad to be here are Republican governor.
-- saying that able bodied people should get off the couch -- Get a job but it.
Well absolutely I think you know it's it's our responsibility.
To make sure we -- -- tax policies good.
Regulatory policies -- -- legal policies in place so that those jobs can be created.
300 and 30000.
New jobs created the state of Texas from February 20112012.
So you know I think we're doing our part in the state of Texas now.
Other governors need to be challenged to put those policies in place to make sure that they have those jobs that are created for people who are looking for work.
But if folks -- just you know on the welfare.
Ride for the sake a welfare ride you bet you know government pages.
Got it spot on but the fact is we both have our jobs it -- We did a pretty good state of Texas.
Do you think though that there -- a lot of people who are quote able bodied who -- insulted by that about being told to get off the cat is it's pretty -- the spirit of people in this country for good reason have been without jobs for you know for a number.
Number of months and something and instances years their houses are underwater.
Do you think -- saying -- -- able bodied people get off the couch is a rather prudent way to encourage people.
Well here's what I think is that.
Need to be doing everything they can't make sure those jobs can be created there -- the federal government doesn't help us -- You know -- stimulus programs in the spending is they've done in this.
The regulatory climate they put in places administration I think -- done more kill jobs are and to.
To talk people -- away from.
Extending dollars in creating those opportunities for wealth and and and that's what we need to be doing that but the idea.
That a governor.
His cajoling folks -- you know get out there and get involved in the work force you know there may be some folks that are offended by that I'm not.
I instead let's talk let's went out in the state with.
Illegal immigration there's a new controversy about whether and I think he wrote a letter.
About whether or not the bad -- that the that the Obama administration is allowing.
Children who were not citizens United States to come across the border -- to your state.
About 80% all of these.
Are coming in across the Texas border.
-- go back in an illegal immigration has been an issue for.
Many many years here compound it by the drug cartels realizing that the Mexican US border was a place that they can operate almost with impunity in some places as matter fact they have operational control on some sides of the of the border we hadn't.
I think 23.
Citizens of Mexico most likely.
I don't know if they've been identified yet in nueva Laredo.
Battle going on there so you you have the illegal immigration issue then you compound it with the the drug cartels -- this new phenomenon that we are seeing now in this is just within the last.
Six months or so.
We seeing 5200.
Young people that we're talking eight to nine year old that are coming from central and South America does not sell -- -- the -- -- just yes no bill and and and we don't know all the details yet about how Mexico's dealing with this but they're coming to the Texas border.
And then cross in the river and our health and human service agencies and then take -- amended the office of refugee resettlement and the vast majority of the eighties we had almost thirteen 14100 of them just in March.
They showed up with health problems with chicken pox.
Where you know the health -- this is is.
Disconcerting is -- -- but they're coming in and almost 90% of them are being resettled here in the United States in and the president United States -- to deal with this needs to be used in -- State Department talking directly to the president so those countries -- these kids are coming through visiting with their friends in Mexico.
To stop -- the meet these your kids are getting on on rail -- ride the Topper Ralcorp all the way up through Mexico.
I mean the danger that they're put in the the sexual assaults that are that or that are occurring meet all of this is some -- Consternation I think for any of us but when they come here and then their dumped on our cities and our counties and our state is expected to pick up the cost.
Is a point in time -- you say.
Quit giving these individuals incentives.
To come up.
And -- be resettled in the United States that's the real issue for me you -- present on one hand you have you know look at China.
We have a dissident they were kind of pushing back in in the form mr.
Chung and then on the other side we've got to get open arms here would this.
Issue because we're not sending a message.
No we're not gonna allow you to come in with good border security and if you do happen to get back we're not taking them back up and -- Picture -- them if you will back into the.
A country which it -- to live there's a combination -- one is the financial burden.
On your state and others but -- -- humanitarian issues they are the Libyan in the mean they're living -- this essentially custody.
The limit on -- someplace in buildings right in these children -- coming and I saw picture in the Wall Street Journal to act.
End of the the health side attitude -- I mean this.
Have not been vaccinated for any of the diseases that are out there and they're bringing those diseases in some cases we have been known.
Case to of chicken pox and then.
We had a quarantines that entire facility where these wasn't here I am in a facility how many kids can -- -- and -- what it what of these numbers well here that's one of the problems is the federal government has given us anywhere between 2448 hours to make these facilities and is like you know this is not our responsibility -- -- saying well yes you've got to help us.
Deal with this Quinn the issue goes back -- we have we have.
We -- this -- with Washington for a long time.
About their lack.
Securing the border you hear them talk about well.
Immigration numbers are down but we had 57%.
Increase since 2008 of our drug seizures along that border we -- -- -- -- what's going.
On the numbers -- -- in the numbers I've seen is that -- more people are going south into Mexico than coming in this direction right now we're seeing those numbers.
But what what that -- -- stunning to me is a number of children who are coming.
Alone and what I saw the picture of them living on these cops and we have they don't have parents here may have gotten mean and and now -- it -- to take custody of these children.
It's a huge problem and and it's one that you know the federal government is -- -- on our state.
An 80% of them are coming at Texas is this not a bigger problem for Arizona New Mexico California is it is for text what -- expect your reply from the -- president -- because it's -- given a letter before the tarmac to give a letter.
We'll keep asking your -- underwriter work well you know -- this about standing up for the people -- taxes.
They expect their governor to to lead on his issues.
And the bottom line is as we got a federal government that is failing -- when it comes to border security failing us when it comes to dealing with this issue.
Let's send a clear message to those countries.
And and their leadership did.
You have to deal with this we can't be responsible for.
How being a repository for your citizens -- you send up here or if you know allowing them to come we've got to have.
Our government sit in the clear message that State Department and other avenues to stop.
For the Tea Party Indiana tonight Richard Murdoch -- no senator -- -- who had been a US senator held a seat for about 36 years.
Is it -- This reflection on the Tea Party just isolated to one particular state one particular.
I don't think so I mean you know -- race for governor back in 2010 you had a substantial United States senator -- been in Washington a long time and that was a substantial.
Victory against of the Washington status quo and I think that's what you see with the senator Lugar and and mr.
Murdoch is that.
People are really fed up with the Washington -- -- -- fed up with the spending they're fed up with people -- and say hey you know it's just the status course.
Would we we don't know how to make it any better.
Yes we didn't stop the spending -- focus and people to Washington DC that really are gonna are represented the people's will on this guy.
XB how presidential candidates run against each -- say the worst things about each other whether -- kind of socialists.
Left flip flop birds or the just seeing a horrible things in the now a sudden it's -- was -- airlines -- him.
Patton everybody in the back install it -- our great friend what happened there in the rest -- we saw those ads there's.
The -- -- goes on.
So I mean had think all of us that -- -- -- for sometime realize that there's some theater that goes on but that -- -- right field -- a little bit of it I mean I guess maybe I'm I would -- semi pulled it grow and be more inclined to hold a grudge I think personnel carriers.
My focus is we've got to beat Barack Obama in November.
And debt Mitt Romney is that individual that was still standing at the end of this process I'm going to be foreign -- going to be hell opening because he will be multiple times better.
For this country.
The Barack Obama for many years of Barack Obama is no deadly for isn't it weird campaign the campaign.
State of the Republican Party is like our guys as bad as yours Camille Little bit -- -- -- -- -- so much better.
-- I don't think that was that the case at all I mean you know when you when you look at these candidates you look were Brock Obama's taken America from the standpoint of of our our jobs numbers and and -- spending in the debt that mean young people.
I mean I don't know how he won he's 25 to forty years so.
Could look at this presidential election and go anything other than we're gonna vote for the Republican because -- some sanity there can spending and getting it under control.
