Perry is right: Dream Act opponents are heartless

I'd like to quote Texas Gov. Rick Perry to all those backward thinking demagogues in Maryland, both Democratic and Republican, who promulgated the referendum against the Maryland Dream Act:

"If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they've been brought there by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."

It is probably the only time in my life where I am going to agree with Governor Perry. But I take my hat off to him to call out these Marylanders (not to mention the other Republican candidates for president down in the polls and motivated by the same demagoguery we see in Maryland) for their meanness and vile, insipid fear-mongering against immigrant children achieving academic prowess.
