This is great, and what I have been thinking for some time.
The cost’s of catching, incarcerating, prosecuting…transporting… and all those damages caused by illegal immigrants including property and punitive damages… by rights should be passed directly to the Federal Government. As they hold themselves as the ONLY entity legally enabled to control the border, so goes the liability for lack thereof.
Rick Perry sent DHS Janet Napolitano a nice little letter, I would have loved to have seen the reaction.
I think this is real progress, and all of the States should scramble aboard.
I am quite certain the Federal Government is not receiving this well. I am pretty sure they will fight this tooth and nail, but common sense dictates that they have a responsibility and are liable for damages.
