Obama Tough on the Border - Not
Is the Obama administration doing a good job on border enforcement in order to create an argument for immigration reform? Not if you ask the Governor of Texas.
Conservative lawmakers, empowered by last week's Republican election gains, introduced a host of bills Monday that include an Arizona-style crackdown on illegal immigration and the requirement of a photo ID to vote.
The bill that passed in Arizona drew widespread criticism from Hispanic groups -- as well as a legal attack from the Obama administration -- amid concerns that it would result in ethnic profiling. Perry, who was overwhelmingly re-elected last week, has said that an Arizona-style measure would not be a good fit for Texas, but polls have shown the proposal has strong public support.
