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).
Boneheaded beyond measure. Perry's great skill in his political career has been to demagogue nearly flawlessly WITH the current of the electorate. I can't imagine what he was thinking.
You're wrong on this, Perry is NOT a closet amnesty supporter.
He is an OPEN amnesty supporter.
Rick Perry: "I support a guest worker program that takes undocumented workers off the black market and legitimizes their economic contributions without providing them citizenship status."
If you take the illegals here now, wave a magic wand over their heads and give them permanent legal right to live here as "guest workers" that IS amnesty. Perry is playing dumb word games when he claims it is not.
