SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry wants the White House to make
a better offer on talking with Texas about border security.
A National Security Council briefing? Not good enough.
Perry said Tuesday he declined a border-security briefing from
the NSC - a high-level panel chaired by President Barack Obama and
key Cabinet members - because he "doesn't need to meet with some
more down-level staff people."
Perry met with Texas border sheriffs in San Antonio a day after
greeting Obama in Austin, where he hand-delivered the president a
letter about the "dire threat" from drug violence along the
U.S.-Mexico border.
The White House responded on Monday that Obama has done more to secure the border than previous administrations.
