Candidate Rick Perry sticks to his guns in supporting illegals

In the Republican presidential debate from September 22nd, Texas Governor Rick Perry chose to speak his mind, which in this case, speaks to his actual history, and said, ""I Don't Think You Have a Heart" If You Oppose In-State Tuition for Children of Illegal Immigrants.

Alas, once again the G Bush Jr clone chooses foreign born workers over the needs of actual American citizens.

During Thursday night's Republican presidential debate, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum all took shots at Rick Perry's record on illegal immigration. Bachmann said that Texas's law allowing in-state tuition for the children of illegal immigrants acted like a "magnet" for illegal immigrants. Perry's response was forceful and personal. "I don't think you have a heart," Perry told his critics.
 "If you say that we should not educate children who come into our state for no other reason than that they've been brought their through no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart," Perry said. "We need to be educating these children because they will become a drag on our society. I think that's what Texans wanted to do. Out of 181 members of the Texas legislature when this issue came up [there were] only four dissenting votes. This was a state issue. Texas voted on it. And I still support it today." - The Weekly Standard

So much for believing Perry is a fiscal conservative.
