Open-Borders Perry "Outed"
Even the L.A. Times can't ignore it
Los Angeles Times -- September 27

Perry faces immigration hurdles in Iowa
His stances on a U.S.-Mexico border fence and college tuition don't sit well with conservatives who'll vote in the state's Republican caucuses.
    Newton, Iowa -- Less than two months into Rick Perry's presidential candidacy, a record on illegal immigration that served him well politically as a border-state governor is proving a tough sell with voters looking toward Iowa's Republican caucuses this winter.
    It came up unbidden in the crowd of neighbors waiting recently for the Texas governor to drop by Uncle Nancy's Coffeehouse in Newton, the former corporate home of the washing-machine giant Maytag.
    "I'm not sure I like Perry's approach to immigration," said Doug Ringger, a retired Maytag marketing man. "That concerns me a little bit --- or a lot. I haven't heard him say we need to seal the borders."
    Iowa voters are not alone in expressing such concerns, though they might seem jarring in a state whose small towns and cornfields are hundreds of miles from the nation's southern border. [...]
    Perry did not mention immigration in his remarks to Republicans gathered across the parking lot on a patio outside Tish's Restaurant. That is his typical practice: He rarely speaks about immigration unless questioned or confronted in a debate. But immigration was on the minds of many who came to hear him, even if they largely welcomed his folksy style, his tribute to moral values and his conservative fiscal rhetoric.
