Gov 39 Percent Makes Up Chit About Al Qaida Border Crossings in Texas

28 April 2007 at 9:28:26 AM

Heh. Who was Perry speaking to? Somebody in Texas? Nope, he's in PENNSYLVANIA, no doubt trying to see how many other states he can fool into thinking he's a viable candidate for some higher office. So, there he is, going to speak at a Boy Scouts dinner and tells the local paper.

"The information that we have is that there have been individuals who have crossed, and some that have been apprehended, that have ties back to the al-Qaida network,"

Texas Senators who actually live on the border told him to cough up his information and sources.

"We have absolutely no information" about such apprehensions, said Sen. Eddie Lucio, D-Brownsville, International Relations and Trade Committee chairman. "I would urge the governor to call us in, and give us a briefing, so that we can better serve our communities along the border.

"It's alarming, if that is so," he said. "I would very much ... be interested in knowing when this happened, and how it happened, and what law enforcement agencies were involved in the apprehension, and where those individuals might be today.

Sen. Eliot Shapleigh, D-El Paso, said of the governor's comments, "I've never heard that. I've heard accounts where people have said that, but I've never seen an independent, verifiable report that makes that allegation.

"To use al-Qaida as a ruse to try and get a border security bill before the people is not helpful," Shapleigh said. " I hope when he comes back he'll discuss it with those of us who live and work on the border."
