Rick Perry Stands By Education Benefits For Children Of Undocumented WorkersSeptember 23rd, 2011 3:00 am Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is defending his record on immigration during a Republican debate, saying people who don’t support education benefits for the children of illegal immigrants are heartless.
Perry has faced criticism from his Republican rivals on immigration since entering the presidential campaign in August. He says Texas has spent millions to secure its border with Mexico, and he supported Arizona’s tough immigration law.
