Immigration Politics: Perry's Immigration Problem "At the debate here (in Orlando, Florida) on Thursday night, Mr. Perry was attacked ferociously by his rivals for supporting tuition discounts for children of illegal immigrants who attend Texas colleges. Like (John) McCain (in 2007), Mr. Perry refused to back down, declaring that if someone opposes the policy, “I don’t think you have a heart.”

And like they did to Mr. McCain, the audience quickly turned against Mr. Perry, loudly booing his position on the issue and his refusal to give an inch. Strategists for Mr. Perry’s rivals were beside themselves with glee after the debate because they know what a difficult spot Mr. Perry now finds himself in."
