....PERRY: Well, let me just put it this way. The federal government's complete and absolute failure to secure our border put a lot of pressure on governors no matter where they might be to have to deal with issues. You are required to give health care, you are required to give education. And Texans made a decision -- are we going to kick these people to the side of the road and they are going to become tax wasters? Or are we going to require that they become citizens of the United States and become taxpayers? We chose the latter. I would still do that today, considering the barriers that if you will, the arena that we have to work in.
As the president of the United States, I am against the DREAM Act. I will shut that border down because I have had to deal with it for 10 years. I understand. I am putting Texas Rangers and National Guard, I am putting Texas citizens on the line over there, they are being fired at. Thank God none of them have been killed yet. But the fact is, I know how to secure that border. When I am the president, that border will be secure. And these issues that we have been forced to deal with as governors, will start being alleviated. And then we can have a decent, a thoughtful and economically focused conversation about immigration policy.
HANNITY: So you think you could secure the border in what period of time if you're president?
PERRY: I think you can do it within a year. I mean, seriously, within a year --

I think he can do it!!
What a monumentally stupid thing to say.
I know he will.
Perry for Ammesty for Illegals ping!
My guess is that he would stack a military presence down there.
So he’s against the following:
1. Physical Border Fence
3. AZ1070 and any similiar laws
So how’s he going to secure the border again?
By using the same FAILED tactics used for the couple of decades?
Hate to say it, but I am wavering back and forth between Cain and Perry...
Obamerry? Perrama? Can’t tell the difference. Mumble me something!
Oh great, then we’ll have ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ within 13 months of his inauguration!
Of course he is.
Ya think people go up in front of racist, pro-illegal alien organizations who aren't pro-illegal and pro open borders?
It could be done in a month in America. But in Amerika? Just look at Ground Zero. Still feeding the unions after ten years.
Hey, stop and ask yourself a simple question. Are these two morons the BEST America has to lead it????????????????????????????? Come on, you’re losing it! Cain or Perry! Sludge or Dreck?????????????????
While giving all those caught in-state tuition?
