...Republican Gov. Rick Perry earned applause from the crowd [at a meeting of the Texas Border Coalition] when he said strategic fencing along the border makes sense but the idea of a complete wall or fence is "preposterous."Now, compare his quote with that from State Rep. Veronica Gonzales, D-McAllen:
Instead, he wants the federal government to establish a guest-worker program that will allow the government to track workers, he said.
...Perry was asked after his speech whether it was a good or bad idea to do away with citizenship as a birthright [via proposed Texas legislation].
"I think any of those types of legislation that create divisions are bad," he said. "We need to look at ways to be bringing people together rather than driving wedges between them."
"That's just a ridiculous bill and I hope it does not see a debate on the floor, because what's going to happen is it's going to become extremely divisive..."Cats and dogs working together, or could it be that they're both cats?
