Perry knows best

It is quite amusing to read of Gov. Perry’s bravado when he tells us how he is protecting us from criminal elements and terrorists by sending National Guard troops to the border.

The sheriff of Hidalgo County tells a different story.

Troops are not needed when these children (oops, “criminals and terrorists”) walk across the border and wait expectantly to be picked up.

But I guess Perry knows best — no need to listen to those locals.
