To: Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears
They are here

Assuming they don't commit violent criminal acts, no politician is going to deport them

Not Sarah Palin, Not Ron Paul, NO ONE

So Governor Perry had to make a choice

As for the expense of the American citizens...Texans are going to pay for the choices of these parents, one way or another

We are going to be on the hook for welfare to low paid or jobless youth, or on the hook for state-rate college tuition for those who qualify to go to college (presumably the brightest and most motivated)

decisions decisions, which works better for Texas and our country in the long run?

I have to agree with the governor, to include these kids with every other 3 yr student at a Texas school, including plenty of kids whose American parents are bums, druggies and winos

Very reasonable response - and Perry’s was a reasonable policy as well. Too bad both of you are catching so much flak.

What part of "illegal" do you not understand?

I see no need for deportations. No one will support it because it seems cruel.

What I would do is enforce electronic document checks for new hires, and fine employers who hire illegals 50,000 dollars for each violation.

Employers would stop hiring illegals, and the illegals would self-deport. End of problem....

Let them pay the same tuition that foreign students pay. Since they are foreign students.

Every other student? What about American citizens who happen to live across the state line? Let's say they live on the Arkansas side of Texarkana but wish to attend college at a Texas university on the other side of town. So it's okay to give these ILLEGAL Texas residents cheaper "in-state tuition" at a Texas university, but force those taxpaying lawful American citizen who lives 2 miles away to pay FIVE TIMES what the ILLEGAL FORIEGNERS living down the road are paying? How is that "fair"?

Sorry, Perry's just plain wrong here.
