Immigration Politics: In New Hampshire, Perry takes on immigration policy criticism

The Associated Press: "Texas Gov. Rick Perry, facing stepped up criticism about his immigration record, has begun trying to counter a perceived weakness by portraying himself as the presidential candidate with the most credibility on the issue. Perry's Republican rivals for the 2012 nomination have made inroads by highlighting his steadfast support for a policy that gives illegal immigrants in-state tuition at Texas colleges.

The aggressive turn to offense on immigration, both by the candidate and campaign surrogates, stresses Perry's decade of experience as a border-state governor to bolster his credentials on immigration and border security."
