Rick Perry Keeps Silent As Immigration Reform Debate Moves Forward

AUSTIN, Texas With nearly 2 million undocumented immigrants and a 1,200-mile border with Mexico, Texas has more at stake than most states in the renewed push to overhaul the nation's immigration system.

Yet so far, Gov. Rick Perry and Republicans who control the Legislature have been sitting this debate out.

They're not resurrecting dozens of contentious immigration bills that roiled the statehouse in 2011. They're not making the rounds on TV and radio to talk about President Barack Obama's plan for legalizing immigrants. They're not even saying the word "immigration."

When Perry delivered his State of the State recently his first since his failed presidential run glaringly absent in the 37-minute speech was any mention of the issue at all.

1. Perry with his mouth shut is a good thing...!

How long will it last? is the crucial question.

2. Senator Cornyn sets the policy on this one. Cornyn and Perry, among others, are up

for re-election. What is Cornyn's GOP Policy for immigration? It should be made widely known; taxpayers are paying his salary. He answers to us. Same goes for Rick Perry. Both need to be ask and the answers need to made public and printed.
