Perry: 'There Is No Homeland Security Without Border Security'

Fresh off his visit to the Heritage Foundation, Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s PAC dispatched an appeal to supporters slamming the Obama administration for inaction on the border and national security.

In his fundraising appeal, Perry explained his call for “comprehensive border enforcement,” as considering immigration reform does not make sense in the midst of “chaos.”

“Defending the border is not a political option. It is a constitutional obligation,” he wrote in his Thursday night fundraising email.

He added that growing strength of ISIS is due to “a lack of White House action.”

“No one had heard of ISIS in January. Now they are marching across Iraq in American tanks, using American weapons and ammunition, and taking cities like Mosul and Fallujah that Americans died to secure,” he wrote.

Perry further stressed the need to prevent ISIS from making its way into America.

“There is no homeland security without border security. We have come to one of those moments when American action will be decisive, and inaction just as consequential,” he wrote.

During his speech at Heritage, Perry warned “there is a very real possibility” that ISIS may have already crossed America’s unsecured southern border.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
