    The number of illegal immigrant college students paying in-state tuition and receiving financial aid at Texas' public colleges and universities continues to climb, according to state higher education records.

    During the fall semester, 12,138 students - about 1 percent of all Texas college students - benefited from the state law granting in-state tuition, according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Most of the immigrants among those students are illegal, and some others are not legal permanent residents or U.S. citizens.

    Texas awarded about $33.6 million in state and institutional financial aid to those students between fall 2004 and summer 2008.

    Rick Perry is against Arizona's immigration law, E-verify, and any type of fence. Now over the next few months he will talk like he is tough on illegal immigration. [​IMG]

    I don't know about the claim they're making regarding the amount of money spent, but Perry did sign the Texas Dream Act.

    I've said before that Perry is no better than Bush when it comes to illegal immigration and as more conservatives in the GOP realize that they'll see he's not their knight in shining armor they seem to think he is.

    Thats one of the things I hate about Pecos Perry, but there are only a few issues I dont see eye to eye with him on.
    If thats all there is, he will trounce Obama.

    Obama is a turd compared to Perry, in fact he is a turd compared to any of he GOP front runners!

    If illegal immigration were a winning issue JD Haynesworth would be president of the united states instead of the has-been he is now.
    Perry is right on this issue. He did not oppose Arizona's law but said it was not the right law for Texas.

    All he ever does is link his other site where he merely says the same thing without any supporting facts.

    I hate it that Mr Cain has this type of supporters

    Perry has a pretty liberal stand on immigration compared to most rightwingers. I love the way candidates in the debate all agree we should delay the question of what do about illegal immigrants living in the country until we fix our boarders.

    I wonder how much it will cost to build a 2300 mile wall. If we build it they will come, tourist that is.
