Rick Perry: It’s the federal government’s fault I had to implement in-state tuition

(By Tina Korbe, Hot Air) - Rick Perry today employed a new argument for his slightly squishy immigration positions: The federal government’s failure to secure the borders forced his state to take up the issue of in-state tuition for illegal immigrant children in the first place.
