In a surprising announcement late this evening, the White House announced it’s decision to let the state of Texas secede from the union.
This was reportedly in response to the numerous signatures that were attached to a petition that was submitted to the White House web site earlier this month. When a petition crosses the 25,000 signature mark, it warrants a response.

Spokesman Jay Carney stated, “We recognize the will of the people of Texas to self determination. While this can have a significant impact on many areas of the remainder of the country, we feel that to deprive them of following their desires would only cause additional friction between our administration and their nonsensical goals.”
Carney further stated, “The White House has been in contact with former governor Perry, now King Perry, and have offered our assistance in helping to protect their country from the inevitable invasion that they will face from the south.”
The office of the newly crowned King made only a brief statement to the press prior to instituting a full press black out, “While we transition from a democratic form of government to one that will be more fitting for those folks within our new country who have really shown initiative and grown our economy, we will do all that is in our power to prevent as many of you from leaving as our border patrol is capable of confining.”
This story is quickly developing and there has been no response at this time from the United Nations. There have been reported military movements in northern Mexico that appear to be designed to prevent illegal immigration from the country of Texas into their sovereign territory.
