Perry seems confused...which is it states rights or comprehensive open borders reform???
Now don't be gettin all ugly on me just cuz I stated the facts y'all...
I disagree with Perry on this one, but it isn’t a deal breaker for me.
Say its not so... Perry a RINO or worse a Poseur!!!!
He does say what I want to hear though...
He talks real good...
I loved the Geithner is a traitor stuff.. its true too..
Perry (THEN) is crooning the same tune as George Bush on illegal insurgents..
Presumably he meant 1980 and 1984. That means that in 3 successive Presidential contests, "diehard conservative" Perry supported Carter, Mondale, and Gore. After 1989, Perry was a nominal Republican, but only 4 years ago, his choice was the "Republican" most like a Demonrat: Rudy Giuliani.
It's astounding the way the Republican sheeple have been conned by this guy, without looking at his history.
Meanwhile, Perry blames the Feds for not closing the border in his state. Typical Tricky Rick tactic, trying to have it both ways.
The hell he is.
He's a traitor advocating treason.
He states, in his own words on his CURRENT website that his shares Vincente Fox's vision of an "open border" between Mexico and the USA.
He's a treasonous TRAITOR!
Perry is not confused - you are.
In regard to it being the state’s rights, he was talking about in-state tuition for college students, not immigration reform. That is is up to the state whether they want to offer in-state tuition or not.
This is a deal breaker for me. Perry should be dead meat.
Perry is an Illegal immigrant enabler and we need no more of them!
A country which won’t secure it’s border soon stops being a country.
When you are giving away free food, housing, medical care and education not understanding that it will bring illegals in droves is like expecting that if you sit out a manure pile it won’t draw flies!
Perry will do on immigration whatever the Chamber of Commerce, Wall St Journal, and Texas business boys club tell him to do, namely support amnesty and open borders. He will be as bad as Bush. His reluctance to say anything and his phony defense of states’ rights is a cover story.
Let’s end the Perry worship and move on to the true conservatives. Right now the Republican party is wired to pick the candidate the MSM wants, just like McCain and Dole.
Wrong Governor perry. the States rights are to those citizens of its states. Your advancing of perceived or real benefits to foreign citizens is a defacto treaty which is the exclusive realm of the President and the Senate. Each person you allow monies from Texas Taxpayers to from a foreign nation now has the agreement with texas and their nation by virtue of their foreign national status. in other words...its completly illegal.
In a December 2006 editorial, Gov. Perry wrote (emphasis mine):
"I would rather know who is crossing our border legally to work instead of not knowing who is crossing our border illegally to work. A guest worker program that provides foreign workers with an ID removes the incentive for millions of people to illegally enter our country. It also adds those workers to our tax base, generates revenue for needed social services and it can be done without providing citizenship."
"Along with millions of Americans, I think it is wrong to reward those who broke our laws with citizenship ahead of those who have followed the law and are waiting to enter this country legally. And like millions of Americans I do not support amnesty."
What Perry is really saying here is that he needed to take those positions to get the support of Hispanic voters. And bringing up the military is a way of putting illegals is a good light, just patriotic Americans without those papers. A sad day when the government felt it needed to recruit illegals for the military. Not a big surprise that those that promote endless new wars $$$$$ also tend to be for Amnesty: McCain, Graham, Kristal.
Perry's stance on illegal immigration Texas Dream Act sounds much like Romney's stance on Obama/Romney-care. They both are saying that they believe in the 10th amendment so don't judge them him negatively by anything they did as governor relating to a presidential run. Good try!
