This could be a problem for Perry. Not only does he sound like Bush on immigration, he sort of acts like him as well.

Bush called us Vigilantes.

McCain called us lazy.

Perry calls us heartless racists.

I am not sure yet who I will support in these primaries but I now know who I will NOT support.

The GOP field is hard at work clearing themselves out and making room for the arrival of Gov Palin.

Yes, I heard Steyn on Rush today. Good for him! We, the law-abiding citizens and taxpayers of the good ole USA don't have a heart? LOL! How about the criminals who enter our country illegally, where are their selfish and greedy hearts at? DON'T REWARD THEM!!

While I have liked PERRY to this point I find his stance on Illegal Immigration more and more troubling. In state tuition for children of illegals? No! His reasoning was absurd!. Don’t build a fence? - WRONG ANSWER! He says if you are against his positions on this you have no heart. I can get that crap from the Democrats. It’s not a matter of not having a heart. It’s a matter of disincentivising illegals from wanting to come or stay here. If you keep giving them benefits it just gives them a reason to stay. And you start them on the “path” to democrat voting rolls!

Make it so uncomfortable that they will leave on their own!

If they want to come in LEGALLY, then I welcome them!

I fear that if we lose Texas we will never win another election and Perry’s approach WILL cause us to eventually lose Texas!

I loved GWB but hated his stance on illegals, maybe it's because Texas has almost 10 million Latinos, probably half of whom are illegal.

Maybe Texas is so inundated with illegals that trying to deport them would result in another Alamo {or Waco} with the Mexicans being on the inside.

Well the ATF should be selling them weapons, just to make it a fair last stand.

Actually he is more to the left of Jorge on illegals, at least Jorge gave lip service to building a fence, and then threw away billions on delays. Perry's plan, is a bogus protect the border, while rewarding law breakers and paying their medical bills.

Immigration, illegal immigration, is probably the most important issue facing us today. It determines who is going to be the voting majority in 10 years.

I can not vote for a Perry who wants us to pay for illegals, and who will not build a wall.

Michelle Bachmann again said she would not give fee education to illegals, she would deport illegals, she would build a wall the entire length of the border,and she would hire enough border agents to patrol the wall.

Steyn is right. Rick Perry slit his wrists on TV last night with his “heartless” response. He sounded exactly like a liberal Democrat. And I’ve supported the guy up till now. But no way do I support a closet amnesty supporter, and that’s what Perry looks more and more to be. I’m depressed now, because on the one hand, we have an un-conservative technocrat in Mitt Romney, and a pro-illegal immigration man in Perry (yes, supporting state-subsidized tuition for illegals make you a supporter of illegal immigration. The truth hurts).

Perry is so wrong on this issue. I no longer support him because supporting illegals cost “we the people” over 4 billion dollars a year and they take jobs that Americans should have.

“This could be a problem for Perry. Not only does he sound like Bush on immigration, he sort of acts like him as well.”

This IS a problem for Perry. “Stay oud of da Bushes!” We don’t need another compasionate conservative. How the hell can you justify illegal immigration when we have unemployment/underemployment over 20%. I will bet that Perry has a gaggle of illegals working on his property.

I guess I must have a heart because I’m heartsick over the state of the GOP field.

I liked Mark Steyn’s comment that Legal Immigrants have all sorts of hoops they have to jump through and his whole rant on how illegals “opt out of” immigration law.

Mark Steyn is 100% correct! He is a legal immigrant and he knows all the crap legals have to put up with.

I heard Steyn and he could be right. I was backing Perry wholeheartedly until I heard him speak of his immigration policy at the Tampa debate. Gave me pause. That said, I still think he's the best of this bunch....albeit, he's starting to sound like a liberal on immigration.

Is “children of illegal immigrants” the proper classification here? As I recall, I thought an Indiana law passed and effective this year allowed no in-state tuition for illegals, period. I wondered then why if someone identified themselves as such and lost in-state tuition, why the next step wasn’t deportation?

Sort of??

Ya turn off the television and you'd swear it was Bush speaking or trying to speak.

Then look at his animated, facial expression, and demeanor...It's pathetic.

The last thing America needs is more of this.

The man can't even repeat a rehearsed, canned message.

This guy will *never* be elected president.

America is not going to elect another person who openly aids and abets a violent invasion of our country.

Not going to happen.
