In New Hampshire GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry defended his record as Texas Governor, talked about the economy and attacked his chief rival for the nomination, Mitt Romney. Addressing in-state tuition for undocumented immigrant students, an issue that has hounded him since the Florida debate, Perry said:
“Asked whether he would make different immigration laws if he had the chance, Perry said no.
“Texas had a decision to make: Are we going to kick these young people to the curb and pay for their existence in our state through social programs or some other type of government dollars — up to and including incarceration?” Perry said. “Or are we going to require that they pursue United States citizenship and pay full in-state tuition?”
Perry added, “Are we gonna create tax wasters or are we gonna create tax payers?”
