Rick Perry's Immigration Policy...



"A day after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law giving thousands of illegal immigrant college students access to private scholarship funds, immigrant advocates said they are aiming for a far bigger prize: California public grants." (LA Times)

"When he first took office as governor in 2001, Perry went to Mexico and bragged about his law that granted “the children of undocumented workers” special in-state tuition at Texas colleges, the first state in the nation to do so.
“The message is simple,” Perry concluded, “educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.” Education is the future, and (echoing Cesar Chavez’s slogan) yes we can." (Politico)
Rick Perry's pander to indocumentados appears to come from a sentimental heart (“to punish these young Texans for their parents’ actions is not what America has always been about.”), but the damage it does as the same as Brown's cold and calculating sell-out.  A bad idea doesn't get better because you mean well, Governor.

Right on. Perry is a NWO globalist, just like Bush and Obama.

We need some TEA in the White House.

Oh, and I linked to your Libertarian Quiz.

While Brown signed that, he cut adult day care for seniors (unless you're Hispanic, of course). Anyone heard from AARP?
