Perry and SB 1070
Perry supported the Texas Dream Act, so illegal immigrants could get a university education at a discount. Perry also supported SB 1070, which authorized state personnel to inquire into the immigration status of anyone suspected of being an illegal.
It does not seem that these two positions are consistent. Pay for their education, but try to take proactive steps to deport people whose education costs Texas hundreds of millions of dollars a year? Hell, why not deport anyone who tries to apply for the discount?
