LA Gov. Bobby Jindal to Obama: ‘Man Up and Secure the Border’

Posted on August 9, 2014 by NC

Breitbart – by Bob Price

HOUSTON, Texas—Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) paid a visit to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to witness first-hand, the ongoing invasion of illegal immigrants into Texas. During the Governor’s visit to Texas he witnessed at least three incidents where people were crossing the border illegally. Gov. Jindal was accompanied by Colonel Mike Edmonson, Louisiana State Police Superintendent and Louisiana House Speaker Chuck Kleckley (R-Lake Charles).

During his visit, Jindal received a status of the border briefing from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). Following the briefing, the group from Louisiana went on a tour of the river on the now famous Texas DPS gunboats and a DPS search helicopter. 

“Earlier this week, I went to the U.S. Mexico border in Texas to get a firsthand look at the crisis on the ground there as a result of the Obama Administration’s inaction to secure it,” Jindal said in an email to Breitbart Texas. ”Just in the few hours we were there, we saw groups of illegal immigrants try to cross the border and enter our nation in plain daylight. We also learned last week that more than 1,000 of these children were placed in Louisiana without any notification or information on them from the Obama administration.”

During the briefing, Gov. Jindal learned much more is at stake than just people crossing the border seeking a better life. “Texas law enforcement officials also said they are seeing instances of drug trafficking, human trafficking and car chases at the border,” the Governor stated.

While touring the river on the DPS gunboat, Jindal and his team witnessed at least three attempted crossings of the border by undocumented immigrants. Colonel Edmonson said, “In at least three locations, we saw where people were trying to make their way into Texas in an unimpeded manner.” The group witnessed a family trying to float across the river, a group of mostly adults walking freely into Texas and a third group wading across a shallow portion of the river according to an article posted on earlier this week.

“Let’s be clear – this humanitarian crisis is a predictable one,” Jindal concluded in the email to Breitbart Texas. “It is happening because President Obama’s administration has failed to secure our borders and enforce immigration laws, making our country a magnet for illegal immigrants. And now, the President says he needs more money. This President has jacked our debt into the stratosphere by spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need and can’t afford.  And now, after doing zero to secure our southern border during his Presidency, he has the nerve to say the problem is due to a lack of spending. This President is not serious, and he’s incompetent.  He just needs to man up and secure our border.”

I previously have had suspicions about Bobby Jindal because of his ethnic background, but lately he is sounding better and better, saying things that almost no one else in high office is willing to say.

As in, the truth.
