    Ten Reasons Why Rick Perry is Bad on Immigration :: American Renaissance News

    1. Open Borders: Former Congressman Tom Tancredo, in a devastating article that appeared in Politico on August 11, 2011, notes that Gov. Perry gave a 2001 speech in Mexico, no less, saying he supported completely open borders, in which he called 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.” Apparently, there can never be too much immigration from Mexico for Gov. Perry.

    2. Border Fence: If you’re for open borders, you don’t want a border fence. The AP reported that in the same 2001 speech in Mexico, Gov. Perry says, “But the idea that you’re going to build a 1,200 mile wall … is idiocy. It absolutely would not work.”

    3. An Arizona-style Immigration Law for Texas: Gov. Perry is against interior enforcement of our immigration laws. During the debate over Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration SB 1070, he opposed enacting something similar in his state, saying, “It would not be the right direction for Texas.”

    I'd be all for open borders, if we ended the socialistic welfare state...Then, everyone who came here would have to pull their own weight.

    But I'll bet Perry doesn't have the stones to propose that.

    And dont forget his "dream act" that he signed into law here in Texas.

    As governor in 2001, Mr. Perry signed legislation to grant in-state tuition discounts to youngsters educated in Texas high schools without regard to their immigration status. That bill became the model for similar measures in about a dozen states, including Maryland, that have passed their own version of what’s now known as the Dream Act. Last year alone, some 16,500 undocumented Texas youth benefited from the law — about 1 percent of all students enrolled in the state’s community colleges and universities.

    I am all for Open Borders. we can have high fences and Open borders. Controlling who comes in, does not mean you have to stop letting people come in.

    You are citing a website that boasts that - "Welcome to AmRen.com — the best source on the Internet for race-realist information and perspectives. We invite you to use the following:" (Seriously, click the link and go to their home page.)

    Why the fascination with race?

    I think there is a vigorous debate to be had about immigration and how we go about enforcing the laws... but if your main problem with illegals are that they are too brown, I think you kind of missing the point.

    One of the complaints listed is that Perry doesn't support a border fence. Good for him. Fences are useless. Always have been.

    Serious, I spent a few minutes surfing this website, and frankly, it was kind of disturbing, the open racism against blacks and hispanics...

    Perry's immigration stances draw fire, support
    By JOE HOLLEY, HOUSTON CHRONICLE
    Updated 09:23 p.m., Tuesday, August 23, 2011

    On a Sunday in June 2001, the first-year governor of Texas signed legislation allowing undocumented immigrants to attend Texas colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates instead of paying international fees. Supporters of the legislation called it the Texas Dream Act.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — He may have been 2,000 miles from the border, but Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry's immigration record in Texas quickly became the focus in New Hampshire Saturday afternoon.

    Speaking to hundreds of Granite State voters at a private reception, the Texas governor was asked whether he supported a fence along the Mexican border.

    "No, I don't support a fence on the border," he said. "The fact is, it's 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good."

    ON a recent episode of Penn And Teller's "Bullshit", they had an episode on illegal aliens.

    As part of their show, they hired six illegals outside a home depot and had them construct a 20 foot section of fence to the standards of the proposed border fence. Same specifications, same materials.

    It took the six men about a day to do it.

    Then they challenged them to break into three teams, one to go over the fence, one to go under, and one to go through. All three teams were through in less than two minutes. 'Hey, do you think they've done this before?" Penn asked.

    You are right, that's a horrible site. It's more than disturbing.
