Yesterday, there were two separate call outs on the internet indicating that the militia members were needed on the Texas border. One call out indicated the militia members should stand by for orders.
Rick Light on FaceBook:
I will be busy this morning because I will be in a meeting with our Local Judge and Sheriff about the Border issue here in Texas.. I ask all Texas Militia personnel to standby.. Lets do this as the Professionals we are.. I will update ASAP..
Mr. Light, a credible militia source, is now posting that Governor Perry has indicated interest in using the militias in tangent with the law enforcement border surge that he announced yesterday.
Update.. RE: Border Op's for the Texas Militias.
I was just informed that the Governor is interested in using the citizens Militias of Texas in this issue. We need a SOP written up and given to the Governors office for a eyes and ears OP along with Detainee OP's that is coordinated with the Local and State Law enforcement. So I call on our Texas Commanders to step up and help with the write up.. Time for a phone convention ASAP.. Please get the word out.. I am asking for the Stand down order to be respected until the SOP is approved by the Governor of Texas. I call on The Texas State Militia, and other Texas Militias to assist in the effort.
If this operation moves forward, militias in other states are offering their support deeming this a national issue as opposed to just a Texas problem as indicated by Chad Neal-Ok D.F.,
I can't speak for all of the Oklahoma Defense Force Militia command but Rick Light as the 1stSgt in the OKDF myself stand with you and seeing how this is a national issue we all need to stand together. If you need additional help I'll be more than happy to talk to the rest of the group.
AZ Ranger notes that since national security is at stake there may need to be militia support in Nogales Arizona. Further, he cautions that proper protocol needs to be followed:
historically the militia has had authority only to operate within its specified AO, and commanders have always respected that. The only time those things change, is when a militia is responding to a specific request. So, if TX wants other militia organizations to participate. The TX Militia's leadership should be the people to issue the call, and set the policies of integration and hierarchy once an outside unit arrives on site. Also, that policy can be a lot different for individuals who are not operating as a specific unit. This is an easy fix, and I agree that if TX allows, militias from across the country should show up and contribute to the defense of our borders. I think that Nogales, AZ POE is going to be the next mess to deal with.
Aaron Christopher Combs doesn't believe that this is an operation that the Governor is currently contemplating.
While i am not calling anyone a liar, but i just got off the phone with austin at the GOV office, Dewhurst and abbott all three have said that NO one has contacted them and they have not contacted any militias about using them. They told me personally that if anything like this were to happen they would not use the militias to write the OP and that it would be a public announcement at a press conf.... this is what i am being told. PERSONALLY by these peoples offices.
Audie Twiford points out that the militias are not vigilantes and that they do need to be called out by the Governor.
It is not the duty of a militia to become a force of vigilantes, it is the duty to prepare and make ready to become organized at the call of our Governor and support him at a state level to be directed by him and the State of Texas in the time of need. Texas didnt get where its at today by being careless and unorganized, the militia has protocols to follow like any other organization.
Will Governor Perry make use of this additional manpower to stop the invasion of Texas by illegals? Time will tell.

The 3 border States with GOP Governors need to send the National Guard or "Militia". It is truly outrageous that tens of thousands of Illegals and children are pouring in and using our money and facilities to take care of them! The leaders of the Countries these people are from need to make arrangements to take them back and at their costs. Obama is truly an Anti-Constitutional A__Hole for allowing all of this to happen as well as are the Democrats and some Republicans that allow it as well!
The National Guard CANNOT be the state militia because the National Guard (as the name implies) can be "nationalized", that is, be made a part of the national military, thus defeating what the Militia were designed for and intended to do.
The Militia (not the drunks running around in camo gear) is to be made up of private citizens that can be called upon by the governor of a state to help in times of disaster or even to defend the state from a tyrannical government. Further, the Militia cannot be nationalized so they cannot be used by the federal government against the citizens.
At least in my state the National Guard is a part of the militia. By state law it consists of the National Guard, Air National Guard and our 4 companies of state militia (2 Horse companies and 2 foot companies). Those 4 companies are largely ceremonial although 3 of the 4 are trained as MP's and the two horse companies do get deployed for some search and rescue missions. Interestingly enough although they are 100% state run, they were nationalized for WW1 as part of the AEF.
The most interesting part though is what we call the unregulated militia, which is basically all of us. Our governor has the power to draft to staff state military bases should he feel that manpower in not sufficient due to units being nationalized.
Let's get some force there to stop this invasion. Obama won't let ICE do their job. Further he has created this disaster. Perry is a good Gov, and he will know what to do. udos to the people of Texas who continue to defy Obama's Dictatorship by taking matters into their own hands when this corrupt government wont lift a hand to help.
Last post I saw was from a member of TNM and the Texas militia! It called for a "STAND DOWN" until members are notified by their directors! Seems this started out as a "panic" post by a couple of women that wanted to see something done about the illegal immigration across the border!
Do you have more info you can post about that, like a link to an article? Thanks
It was frem a Lorie Meachum! I think I stored it in a folder! Will try to find it & get back on here!
Great. I think some folks would be interested to share that.
I posted a reply to this (to your name)! Need the numbers, locations that were involved, contact me: email@example.com!
This crisis on the border is created by Obumo/his Justice Dept/DHS/... what ever alphabet he controls. This is no different that the crisis that Obumo created with Fast/Furious. People are still dying from this illegal operation of Obumo. Thousands will die/be victims of crimes by this illegal act, become diseased.... years and years to come. Right after Obumo came to the WH, he brought in his good buddy, COmmunist Van Jones. In a speech Jones bragged that they will bury this country.. top down.. bottom up. The mountain of slime created by Obumo/Dems is about to slide on all of America.. not just the Border States. Better have your vaccinations up to date. Better look for a private school for you kid that will teach in English. Why not just # Me$$chelle. PRoblem solved.
Send in the Militia. Give them free ammo, all they can use. If the federal gubment does not like it, let every able bodied person in AMERICA come to the defense of the Militia.
