Vision to America: Immigration / Perry Bills Feds $349M for Incarcerating Illegals

Good for Perry.  These appointed folks really do not have law making authority, and right now the executive branch, who is charged with upholding the laws of this country, is not doing their job enforcing the laws related to immigration.

The man whose disdain for the federal government is a keystone of his presidential campaign billed Washington this month for nearly $350 million to cover the costs of detaining illegal immigrants.

In an Aug. 10 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Gov. Rick Perry blamed the federal government for failing to secure the border and burdening county jails and state prisons with the costs associated with housing illegal immigrants.

“Therefore, on behalf of all the taxpaying citizens of Texas, I am respectfully submitting a reimbursement request in the amount of $349,283,453 for state and local costs of incarcerating illegal immigrants who are in the United States as a result of the federal government’s failure to properly secure our international borders,” Perry wrote.
