AMHERST - Winning the endorsement of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry echoed his stance on illegal immigration today in the Granite State, saying he would support a federal law to "detain and deport every illegal alien that we apprehend."
During a morning campaign stop at Joeys Diner, the presidential candidate said he would end the current catch-and-release policy that cuts loose nonviolent illegal immigrants.
Calling the policy "horrific," Perry said the future of America depends on the security of its borders. If elected, Perry said that one year after his inauguration the border with Mexico would be secure, with thousands of National Guard troops deployed and strategic fencing in high traffic areas.
It is a federal responsibility to secure the borders, Perry told a crowd of breakfast customers and members of the Amherst Republican Committee. The candidate said there is a need for full-time surge at the border.

I believe that’s the law now, it’s just not being enforced...
“detain and deport every illegal alien that we apprehend.”
Perry will Detain every Illegal Alien and hold them public university at the tax payers expense and deport them upon graduation.
Huh? He wants to detain and deport every illegal, yet he also wants to give them subsidized college tuition? Makes no sense.
In other news, Perry finally came down on stopping at stop lights. It was a tough decision.
Hell, another fifteen years and I may back Perry. I’ve got to give it some study...
But that’s so...heartless.
I.e., we just won't apprehend any!
I find Mitt Romney’s claims of being 100% pro-life more credible at this point.
Exactly! I want to see how he harmonizes these two policies.
This guy is a pant-load.
Where’s his heart? (snicker) But seriously, Perry tries just a little too hard to be a tough guy. The comments in his ad about cutting Congress’s pay and sending them home is over the top too for some parts of the country.
“Huh? He wants to detain and deport every illegal, yet he also wants to give them subsidized college tuition? Makes no sense.”
I think if you check this policy you mention is the same policy that GW had in place in Texas as gov.
Sheriff Joe, say it isn’t so...
How about we cane (starting with three swats) them and then export them back to their home country? Every time they show back up they get an extra swat before being sent home.
Our candidates let the media hornswaggle them by bringing up the question of deportation.
What many want to do is cut the taxpayer funded bennies and enforce existing law.
If that happened and the border was secure, many would self deport.
it doesn’t make sense to you since you didn’t bother to actually read it
he will detain and deport every illegal APPREHENDED.
do you need that word defined?
It’s time for Perry to retire those cowboy boots and get him some chest wader boots.
And I find Cain’s financially strapped accusers more credible than either Romney or Perry. But not by much.
We should detain and deport all the pandering, corrupt politicians like Perry.
Is Perry losing his heart?
