He already told Vincente Fox that he shared his desire for open borders.

Okay, thanks. It looks like this talking point (along with so many others) has been taken out of context. Here's what Perry said:
"President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace, as long as we demonstrate the will to address the obstacles to it. An open border means poverty has given way to opportunity, and Mexico’s citizens do not feel compelled to cross the border to find that opportunity. It means we have addressed pollution concerns, made substantial progress in stopping the spread of disease, and rid our crossings of illicit drug smuggling activity."
Did anyone read the entire thing? Perry in essence says that an open border is a grand idea, but it's a fantasy unless Mexico deals with the problems that make its citizens want to flee here.
