    Texas officials appealed to the Obama administration on Thursday to secure the U.S.-Mexico border once and for all as waves of illegal immigrant children overwhelm the system, with one lawmaker saying U.S. military bases effectively have been transformed into camps to handle the influx.

    "Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I'd see this in the United States of America," House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said.

    McCaul spoke at a field hearing he convened in McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley which has seen the brunt of the migrant surge. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has deployed state resources in a bid to boost border security, and other state officials testified at the hearing.

    "Secure this border, Mr. President," Perry urged in his opening remarks.

    The hearing comes as the Obama administration, and local communities, grapple with the influx of illegal immigrant children and families, mostly from Central America.

    Several top-ranking lawmakers have visited the border in recent days, and President Obama earlier this week requested additional authority to speed up deportations in some cases. He also announced he's shifting enforcement resources from the interior to the affected areas.

    But in the meantime, the federal government is scrambling to house illegal immigrant minors awaiting immigration proceedings. They are spread out among a number of facilities, including military bases like Ft. Sill in Oklahoma and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

    McCaul said it is clear the Obama administration is not prepared to deal with the influx. "This has left state and local officials to fill the void," he said.

    typical democrat behavior. Fuck it all up and expect someone else to take care of the mess.

    Can Rick Perry call up the Texas National Guard to deploy a blocking force on his border between Texas and mexico?

    His office also revealed that many minors crossing the border alone are meeting up with their parents "who are already in the United States illegally." His office said these parents often "had a role in smuggling the minors into the United States."

    Some of the parents are already here and paying to have their children smuggled in.

    Texas made a different agreement with the federal government concerning the national gaurd than the other 49 states so it could have a different outcome.

    Sorry, don't have the link, but saw one of the Republican congresmen from Texas on Fox the other night, saying he tried to get in Lackland AFB, in his home district, to see what was going on, but was refused admission. He told them he was on a congressional committee with jurisdiction over this, and still refused admission.

    How's this for the most transparent administration?

    Same thing happened in Oklahoma with a Congress Critter on the Armed Services Committee that tried to visit the refugee camp on Ft Sill

    Nancy Pelosi the twit visited one of these (not) "refugee camps" a couple of weeks ago with no problem, but then she can be trusted to keep her liberal mouth shut about the health conditions of these "refugees".
