Maybe Rick Perry didn’t get the message.
The border is secure. The most secure it’s been in years. It’s also been completely militarized already. Border residents widely report feeling safe in their neighborhoods. Oh, and enforcement-only policies are failing around the world and creating a humanitarian crisis.
But none of that stopped presidential candidate Rick Perry from suggesting that we need predator drones at the border.
This is the same Rick Perry who just months ago was pushing for so-called “sanctuary cities” legislation that created an anti-Latino environment in Texas so toxic that even Republican senators joined Tea Party extremists and others to bash Latinos and Hispanics.
Good luck, Rick Perry. Without the Latino vote, you are going to need it.
