Rick Perry's Down Fall

Republican Presidential canidate Rick Perry is seeing issues due to his stance on immigration. The biggest issue is the fact that he passed a bill that allows illegal emigrants to go to college at the same low price as in state students.  
While last night Perry did not have to deal with it during the Debate, it is not expected to go away. 
This issue has taken away his thunder as the front runner of the Republican Party. Mitt Romney really has hit him hard. 
The reason that they think that it did not get brought up last night was because Romney was unable to make it to the debate.  
Dallas County Board of Supervisors Kim Chapman said "If you are here legally, you're entitled to the benefits offered to the residents of this county, but if you are an illegal, I don't think you should get them." 
Perry does have more of the Hispanic voters on his side. They fear that in order for him to win that he will have to take a stronger stance on emigration which would hurt him with the Hispanic community. 
We will just have to wait and see how much his policy will hurt him in the long run.

  1. Wow. Didn't know he had done that. Thanks for the info. To bad Mr. Romney wasn't there, wonder if it would have put Mr. Perry on the spot, think he would've got tongue tied, oh ya.
