Now Texas Aggies Attack Rick Perry on In-State Tuition
Rick Perry Report ^ | Oct 11, 2011 | Joe Hyde

Posted on 10/11/2011 2:12:22 AM PDT by bullypulpit

The video above was published by the Texas Aggie Conservatives as a protest against the professor visiting A&M to promote the federal DREAM Act.

One may think that the ultimate irony would be that the G.O.P. candidate with the most liberal record could find a credible avenue to attack a conservative southern state governor like Rick Perry on illegal immigration. But when the Conservative Aggies, a rightward student organization of like-minded students from Tex. Governor Rick Perry's alma mater attack him from the right on the same issue, it trumps the Romney irony.

The Texas Aggie Conservatives group was vocally upset over the university paying $6000, of which $5000 was honorarium to a lefty professor who is an illegal immigrant advocate from Houston to visit A&M and spread the pro-illegal immigration gospel. Specifically he stumped for the federal DREAM Act that promotes amnesty. In doing so, the professor praised Rick Perry:

I have to congratulate the governor… I will say so here at his alma mater that he has been absolutely correct and courageous on this particular point.“

And the liberal professor again:

“Governor Perry will probably never have a greater moment than his defending his actions the other night.”

(Source: Campus Forum)

The local newspaper heard about it and went on campus to get some good quotes. They found a willing participant to put fellow Aggie Rick Perry, class of 1972, down. “The fact that he continues to defend his stance is troubling,” said Justin Pulliam, a member of the Texas Aggie Conservatives. “He’s not an all-around conservative candidate.”

Pulliam’s group started a petition requesting that Perry call a special legislative session to end in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Piling on.

The solution lies somewhere between shoot ‘em and stack the bodies to build the border fence, vs figure out how to either deport some or all of them, and/ or give some of them them a right under certain conditions to stay and obtain education at the appropriate cost and use of state resources.

Governor Perry was opposed from both the left and right in 2010. Debra Medina was a poor candidate, but CW and DRey can’t deny this fact. If Governor Perry was such a strong conservative, why did he receive significant opposition from the conservative right, the Tea Party? As bad as she was (a Truther!), Debra Medina finished with 18.6% of the vote. I think illegal immigration then and now was a big issue against Governor Perry.

Giving in-state privileges to illegal alien invaders is setting them up for amnesty cause they,being illegals,are not even at the back of the lines for LAWFUL applications for citizenship—this is all an Amnesty Rick scam.
BTW,when the illegal alien invaders take advantage of Perry's hand-outs they have to supply a social security number to apply like everyone else,don't they?


Gawd,don't let this crook win the nomination.

Yeah, we need a new consumption tax and Caincare. That’ll be great - just what the Tea party wanted!

More taxes and more socialized medicine!

The Cainbots need to dismount that high horse.

Why do we have to repeat Obama with Caincare, Federal education activism and a new consumption tax?

And it is a lie that the Tea Party was against Perry. The Ron Paul libertarians were against Perry and although they are a part of the Tea Party in Texas, they are not THE Tea Party. The Tea Party was against Kay Hutchinson.
