US child immigrant surge a 'tragedy': Texas governor

Texas Governor Rick Perry gestures at a press conference on the sidelines of the Republican Party's State Party Convention in Anaheim, California, on October 4, 2013Texas governor Rick Perry warned Thursday that a growing wave of immigrant children flooding into the US risks becoming a “monumental tragedy” and a national security crisis unless they are sent back as soon as possible. He said a policy of housing unaccompanied minors in detention centers or allowing family members living in the US to care for them risks encouraging a “deluge” of more immigrants from Central America and elsewhere. “This second crisis is one of national security,” he added, saying resources which should be used to protect the border were being diverted by the huge influx of immigrants. “The border between the United States and Mexico is less secure today than any time in the recent past,” he said.
