Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday on "Hannity" that President Obama needs to act now to stop the surge in illegal immigrants flooding across his state's border, calling it "a humanitarian crisis that he has the ability to stop." The Republican governor spoke out after meeting with Obama in TexasWednesday afternoon. Both sides called the meeting "constructive" and said they agreed philosophically. However, Perry said he is concerned that Obama did not indicate he will take the immediate action he requested: to use his power as commander-in-chief to send the National Guard to secure the border.

3. Stunning: California Couple Says They Were Asked to House Immigrant Children - Rush Limbaugh

Father God, we thank You for their courage, and we ask that You keep them safe under the shelter of Your wing, O Most High God.

Now that this plan has been exposed, we ask that even more millions of Americans be made aware of the danger now at their door. Lord God, let Congress rise up and protect our rights by calling a halt to this wicked agenda, that we might each be kept safe, and that our own privacy rights be retained. Thank You, Lord, that You are much greater than any plan the enemy can throw against us. In Your Name, amen.

7. Mexican judge sends Tahmooressi back to prison - Fox News

A Mexican federal judge sent Andrew Tahmooressi back to prison after the U.S. Marine sergeant made his first official courtroom appearance since being locked up more than three months ago for accidentally crossing the border with guns in his pickup truck.

The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for August 4.

- Father with the crisis at the border, the Mexican authorities are making a huge error- they want us forgive their helicopter firing at our border patrol, but they are not willing to forgive this young Christian Marine. We ask that cool heads prevail over this situation, that no bloodshed results from the decision of the Mexican court.

The Daily Jot

Was Netanyahu prophetic or realistic?

During the first ten days of August 2005, former cabinet member of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and once Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, plead with Israeli leadership to end the disengagement plan of evicting Jews from Gaza. Netanyahu believed giving up land without concessions is a demonstration that terrorism pays and that Israel's national security will be forever threatened. Middle East News Line reported that Israel's military had revised its withdrawal plan to account for a scenario under which the eviction of Jewish residents from the Gaza Strip would be completed amid massive Palestinian fire. This is exactly what happened. But there was far more in the future.

Netanyahu called disengagement an "evil" and urged Members of the Knesset to stop it. He warned the Sharon government that the Palestinians will only use the Gaza land to establish a terrorist base of operations and that the nation of Israel's defense and security may be undermined by disengagement. He said, "I am calling on all those who grasp the danger: Gather strength and do the right thing. I don't know if the entire move can be stopped, but it still might be stopped in its initial stages." And he warned, "The government is advancing in total blindness. They have eyes but don't see. They have ears but don't hear."
Fast forward nearly 9 years and Netanyahu, now Prime Minister, is dealing with the exact problem of which he warned. Against a backdrop of hundreds of missiles fired at Israel's nuclear plant, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem over the past month, and some 300-plus in just the last 48 hours, Bloomberg reports that Netanyahu vowed to "intensify even further our attacks on Hamas and other terror organizations in Gaza." The Palestinian Authority, the darling of the White House peace process, has embraced Hamas as a partner. When Gaza was turned over to the "Palestinian people" in 2005, they eventually elected Hamas as their political representatives. Since then, Gaza has been a stronghold and base for terrorism against Israel.

If ever the so-called "Palestinian People" had an opportunity to demonstrate to the world that it could have a nation living side by side in peace with Israel, it was in Gaza. Instead, they embraced their roots of terrorism and have been agents of violence. Yet Netanyahu's Biblical reference applies not only to Israel, but also the United States still today. In Ezekiel 12:2, the Lord says, "Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house." Many are so rebellious against God that they cannot see the obvious and they refuse to hear the reports of the consequences.

Since President George W Bush insisted on evicting Jews from their own land, America has faced one natural disaster after another. She has elected as "president" a man who aids and abets Islamic terrorists at the expense of our own nation and Israel. Our economy has collapsed. Our nation is being invaded. Our longstanding Constitutional rights are being violated and ignored. Laws are enforced selectively. Leaders lack vision, morals, ethics and accountability. Netanyahu's comments in August 2005 were true then and even more so incredulously true today. We are obviously living in prophetic times and the vast majority of the world has eyes, but does not see, and ears, but does not hear.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Stunning: California Couple Says They Were Asked to House Immigrant Children

RUSH: This is Ann and Ed in Southern California. Welcome. It's great to have you on the phone. Hello.

ANN: Hello.


ANN: Hi, Rush. How are you?

RUSH: Just fine. Thank you very much.

ANN: Great. Well, we have some interesting news. My husband Eddie is on the phone with us. We live in Southern California, and we're Catholic, active Catholics in our community, and there was a town hall meeting last evening, emergency meeting called by our local parish priest, ordered by our bishop (unintelligible) and the Archdiocese of San Bernardino. They have made the decision that they're going to absorb the immigrants that are coming through because the federal government called the bishop's office on Monday and they're gonna be busing these immigrants to our communities and asking us to open our homes and to house them for up to a month. The church will reimburse us for any out-of-pocket expenses and we were told not to talk to anybody about it, especially the media. I'm not especially happy about it. My husband is a retired doctor, and he will share his concerns with you regarding this matter. Eddie, do you want to go ahead and talk about your thoughts?

EDDIE: Longtime listener, Rush. Thanks --

RUSH: Thank you, Eddie.

EDDIE: I'm very concerned about the health care crisis that we're facing and these illegal aliens that are coming into the United States. Doctors are being asked not to talk to the media, they're on gag orders, both doctors and nurses, and we got a big problem because there are a lot of diseases that can come through this border bringing all kinds of stuff . . .

Prayer Request:

Father God, as we read the full transcript of this dramatic interview, we see that this couple was told by their church to not call the media or to let anyone else know of this plan.
