Perry To Granite Staters: No Border Fence

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the leading contender for the GOP presidential nomination, according to a Gallup poll taken from August 17–21, has reiterated his opposition to a fence along the American border with Mexico. He commented on the fence at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, a crucial primary state.

Perry, who served as the chairman of leftist Al Gore’s Democratic presidential campaign in Texas in 1988, has a confirmed liberal history on immigration, as The New American has reported, although he now campaigns as a conservative.

In New Hampshire, Perry repeated the idea that building a fence would merely boost the ladder business.

Perry’s Remarks

The former Gore booster was speaking to potential supporters at a private reception, The Associated Press reported, when someone asked about his support for a border fence.
