Rick Perry and the Texas DREAM ACT

September 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said his fellow White House hopefuls are heartless for criticizing his support of providing government funds to help lower tuition rates for university students in his state who did not enter the United States legally.  In 2001, Perry signed the Texas DREAM Act, which allows Texas students to take advantage of in-state tuition prices even if they lack legal status in the US.  “If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart,” Perry said at the Republican presidential debate hosted by Fox News and Google.  “We need to be educating these children because they will become a drag on our society,” Perry said, noting that the law passed with near unanimous support in Texas.
