Rick Perry's Immigration Policy... It's a Killer!

Six Houston police officers have been killed or injured since 2006 by illegal immigrants.

Officer Kevin Will

Officer Rodney Johnson

Officer Richard Salter

Officer Gary Gryder

Officer Henry Canales

Officer Nash Patel

Rick Perry refuses to endorse Arizona's AB 1070 immigration enforcement act, describing it as "inappropriate for Texas," while flashily demanding the US send troops to the border.  Is he willing to enforce the law or not?

While in Mexico in 2007, Perry called for "... free flow of individuals between these two countries who want to work and want to be an asset to our country and to Mexico.” while at the same time condemning sanctuary cities in the US.

In the meantime, cops and private citizens in Texas are dying at the hands of criminal indocumentados while Governor Perry straddles the fence.

Which is it, Governor?  One of the things that ended Huckabee's campaign run was his coddling of criminals that led to the deaths of four policemen.  What makes you different?

Does Rick Perry really believe that illegal immigration and the load it puts on our social services and employment is not a factor in our economic woes?  Has he ever visited a big-city emergency room?

George Lopez on the Rebound

Having distinguished himself in the past month by threatenting to move to Canada if Sarah Palin was elected, getting his TBS talk show thrown off the air by Conan O'Brian — and that's just sad in itself — and then divorcing the woman who saved his life by donating him a kidney, the comedian with the gigantic head and the even bigger mouth has hit upon a daring strategy to recoup his fading celebrity cred:

(Hollywood Reporter) — "Struggling comic George Lopez will appear in a very special episode of Great White North where he will try to talk Bob or Doug Mckenzie into donating him a liver."

Failing that:

(TMZ) — "Canned cable talk host George Lopez has agreed to make a sex tape with Kathy Griffin in Charlie Sheen's favorite bar, with a special guest appearance by Jan Michael Vincent."

Sources close to Lopez attempted to continue outline future career moves by the comic, only to be interrupted by the assembled press throwing microphones, cameras and digital recorders...

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.
