#1 My sense is the operation to move children from Central America north has been in the planning stages for months. Under the current regime, I suspect it would have happened with or without so-called immigration reform.

#2 A community organizers dream; moving liabilities right into the heart of your enemies territory. And making your enemy look like the bad guy while doing it.

#3 ALL of Champ's motives are ulterior; it's the Progressive way.

#4 Mr. Perry, it can be both.

#5 ValJar has now invited Perry to a 'round table style substantial meeting' discussion with the Champ and other "leaders." Looks like a PR/photo ambush. I hope Perry declines and invites Champ to his office for a one-on-one instead.

#6 Perry declines Champ handshake at airport.

#7 Refusing Champ's photo-op? Texas will pay -- send in a few more 100k disease ridden gang members from Central America.

#8 Rick Perry trying to talk to Obama would be like the Israelis trying to negotiate with Hamas. How do you negotiate with an enemy whose central aim is to destroy you?

#9 Negotiations involve some spirit of good will on both parties. Non existant in this case.

#10 Barack Obama - continuing the democrat tradition of the Flesh Trade.

#11 Took the Iraq fiasco and Benghazhi fiasco off the front pages and created a crisis the left could slough off as humanitarian but which would obviously upset the right. Lots of coincidences in there that help the One, or at least Democrats.

Republicans really shoudl be using words such as human trafficing and suggesting that if these are indeed refugees that there are some failed states down south that perhaps the Marines should be looking into (as was the case with Haiti a decade or so back).

#12 Ah, yes, promote the "Clinton Doctrine"!

#13 I vote for "He has an evil motive."

#14 He's doing it to be oppositional. To piss people off, and make them scream louder, which makes him feel important. Everyone is paying attention to him, and arguing about the chaos, misery, and destruction he's sowing. He has probably never felt so powerful, and is likely to transgress more and more boundaries. The same way a drug addict needs more and more to feed the addiction.

Unfortunately, it's pointless to impeach him without a good chance the Senate will then convict and remove him. But the longer consequences are delayed, the more emboldened he will feel, and the more damage he will do.

#15 imho, at best, the U.S.A. is a relief valve for failed governments. At worst, we are enablers of same.

At some point, something's gotta give.
