Good lord. That fool actually said it......
"President Foxs 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 Mexicos 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.
