Perry's Problem Emerges
Fox Folks don't see it -- or hear it -- or speak it
Washington Times -- August 16

Rick Perry's immigration problem
.... [...] Perry has an immigration problem.
    In 2001, Perry signed into law the very first Texas "Dream ACT." It allowed the children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at any Texas university, as long as they graduated from a Texas high school. [...]
    Next, Perry slammed Arizona for passing Senate Bill 1070, which allows law enforcement officers to question suspects about their citizenship. The law also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally. [...]
    As Tom Tancredo wrote in an op-ed on Politico:
    Perry, in a speech in Mexico in 2007, said he supports completely open borders, calling for the "free flow of individuals between these two countries who want to work and want to be an asset to our country and to Mexico."
    In the same speech he came out against building a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border. Perry also came out in favor of blanket amnesty for illegal immigrants in 2006, albeit without citizenship, supporting "a guest worker program that takes undocumented workers off the black market and legitimizes their economic contribution."
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment: We have been straining to hear something on Fox News about Perry and illegal immigration – but they have said essentially nothing. O'Reilly, Hannity and Van Susteren have betrayed their audiences.
