"In 2001, Perry signed into law the very first Texas “Dream ACT.” It allowed the children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at any Texas university, as long as they graduated from a Texas high school.

Rick Perry defended the Texas “Dream ACT,” saying, “To punish these young Texans for their parents' actions is not what America has always been about.”

Perry then jetted off to Mexico and bragged to the Mexicans that Texas passed this law, saying, “The message is simple, educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.” Education is the future, and yes we can.

Do you want a president who offers in-state tuition to illegal immigrants and then goes to Mexico and brags about it? Absolutely not.

Next, Perry slammed Arizona for passing Senate Bill 1070, which allows law enforcement officers to question suspects about their citizenship. The law also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally".

Good news, Chicagonut, Rick Perry now wants to use military technology to blow up all those funny-talking brown people invading our country.

Hmmmm to use drones to patrol the border is to blow people up? Most drone missions flown even in war zones are to observe the enemy.
Perhaps I missed something but did he call from armed drones to attack illegals?

I know, hilarious isn't it? This person obviously doesn't even know what a drone is. Perry is not suggesting blowing up "brown" people or anyone else. Perry is a pro-illegal. He has a track record of it. Notice the reference to skin color to pull the race card?

Rick Perry has been Hispandering since day one in office.

Sadly this is not news to those of us in the Great (border) State of Texas.

Yeah, news flash: Perry already pulled that card with his whole "let's pander to the milatary-industrial complex-worshipping xenophobes in the GOP" plan. Pointing that out isn't "playing the race card."

Nice to know that from an actual Texan. If he wins the nomination he won't be getting my vote, that's for sure. I'll write in my own candidate.

Bush was almost as bad. In some ways he was worse. A lot of this explosion of illegal immigration occurred while he was President and I don't recall him doing much (if anything) about it.

Texas politicians are pretty notorious for Hispandering. It's sickening.

No minorities work in the industrial complex?
No minorities serve in the armed forces?
Most farmers are also regestered republican. No minority farmers? No minorities work on farms?
