Perry on Immigration: Worse than you think dailycaller.com/2011/09/06/per…
Reading Kaus at greater length, in which he says, in fact, that Perry is worse than he thinks, I discover new ways for Perry to be bad.
“Rick Perry’s record on immigration isn’t as bad as I thought. It’s worse! … It’s not just that he doesn’t want to build the border fence.

But Perry hasn’t supported the quickest, best way to take away the jobs magnet, which is to require all private employers to use the “E-Verify” electronic check of Social Security numbers. Perry wouldn’t even require his own state government to use E-Verify, let alone private employers, declaring “E-Verify would not make a hill of beans’ difference when it comes to what’s happening in America today.” ….”
