Either way, the guy cannot be trusted. If he gets in the White House, with rinos like Mcain and Graham to work with, we might as well learn spanish cause they will be flooding in. Just like in Texas.

I have no doubt that Perry would not do anything to seriously anger his backers. They wouldn't have donated millions to Perry if he hadn't made it known that he'd support their causes.

Back in 2004, Perry gave a speech that was nearly 3 years after 9/11, where he talked about national security, but then turned around and said this:

As a nation of immigrants, the United States welcomes men and women who enter our country to better their lives and enrich our society. Travel to an urban classroom, or a citizenship ceremony in our state, and you will find new Americans, of almost every native tongue, who have descended on Texas from every corner of the world to pursue one common dream, the American Dream.

Those who want to build a wall around this nation fail to understand that while we must do everything to keep enemies out, we must never stop the immigrant dream from continuing to make its way in. Those who enter our country in good faith, and seek unlimited freedom, should be welcome whether their native roots are in Australia or Africa, South or North America, Asia or Europe, including that mountainous country called Austria.

As governor of Texas, I welcome the contributions of millions of Mexican workers who are making a better way for their families in Mexico, while building our economy in Texas. And as the first statewide official to endorse NAFTA in the early 90’s, I welcome not only the contributions that Mexican workers make to our economy, but the expanded trade that can create opportunities north and south of our border.


Oh, and we can't forget that Perry is a big fan of LULAC as well.

The scary thing to me is that this is typical Rick Perry and has been for the better part of the last decade, and yet many people outside the state believe he's changed his stripes. They don't stop and think what it means when your biggest donor is a home builder who has spent millions campaigning for you.
