On ABC News' This Week, Gov. Rick Perry told host Martha Raddatz that he doesn't believe President Obama cares if the border is secure. 

"The federal government is just absolutely failing. We either have an incredibly inept administration, or they're in on this somehow or another. I mean, I hate to be conspiratorial, but I mean, how do you move that many people from Central America across Mexico and then into the United States without there being a fairly coordinated effort?" Perry said.
