As the governor of Texas Rick Perry has declared, the federal government could not cope with a growing crime rate on border, and the local government should be protected independently. According to critics, Perry's message has populist character.

Besides, a special problem — protection of remote areas where owners of farms and ranches complain of flow of smugglers and gangsters from Mexico with which not in forces to consult local bodies of the law and order and boundary guards.

In Perry's answer named position Hutchison "hypocritical" as the woman-politician "is in Washington 16 years", but does not undertake the measures necessary for safety of border in Texas.

Throughout 2009 Perry repeatedly asked the minister of national safety Janet Ann Napolitano and president of Barack Obama to send for protection of the Texas site of border the additional armed contingent of national guards as a part of thousand persons. Till now it have not made, as disputes on an order of financing and placing of guardsmen proceed.
