Gov. Perry Does a 180 on Border Security Philosophy
Gov. Rick Perry said a whole lot about border security during his re-election campaign. From what I remember, he kinda towed the party line about building a wall along the Mexican border. But today, he told a the Texas Border Coalition that building a wall along the border is “preposterous”.
Gov. Good Hair’s campaign pandered to the “angry anti-immigrant” segment of the population, and seeing as how he got reelected, that’s a popular sentiment around here. So it must come as a total shock when he says “The only thing a wall would possibly accomplish is to help the ladder business.”
In an unusally wise statement, Perry says “Good neighbors do not foster fear and engage in divisive appeals. They seek solutions”
Hopefully this is the beginning of sane political thinking about how to deal with immigration. What do you think? Is a wall a good idea? Are there other options? Would you really sit and watch a webcam of the border?
