The Facts About Texas' In-State Tuition Law

In 2001, Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a law granting in-state tuition benefits to undocumented immigrants. Now that Perry is running for president, his critics, including GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney, are using Perry's support for the law to accuse him of being insufficiently tough on immigration. However, Texas' in-state tuition law is both good for the economy and legally sound. Given those facts, critics like Romney should explain why Perry's judgment about the best policy for Texas was wrong instead of simply pandering to anti-immigrant sentiment among GOP primary voters.

Gov. Perry Shows His Ignorance On The Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has written an op-ed, published in both the Jerusalem Post and Wall Street Journal, assailing the impending Palestinian statehood initiative before the United Nations and, unsurprisingly, putting much of the blame on the Obama administration. Perry, of course, has little knowledge of foreign policy, which is evident by the fact that he signed his name to such easily refutable claims. Highlighting his inability to accurately connect interrelated issues or make logical conclusions, Perry writes that through their statehood efforts at the U.N., "the Palestinians are signaling that they have no interest in a two-state solution." Of course, the whole point of the U.N. move, as even opponents understand, is to create a Palestinian state alongside Israel. By definition, those would be two different states. This sort of ignorance permeates the piece.
