Perry Doubles Down on Dream Act

Perry doesn't try to weasel out of his support for the Dream Act.

“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.

Perry was responding to comments from Mitt Romney, who spoke forcefully about the unfairness to citizens of giving discounts to illegals.

“If you’re a United States citizen from any other of the 49 states,” Romney said, “you have to pay $100,000 more. That doesn’t make sense to me. That kind of magnet draws people into this county to get that education, to get that $100,000 break. It makes no sense.”
