Press Release - Rick Perry Ridicules Border Fence
Michele Bachmann supports enforcement of America's immigration laws and securing our borders.
Rick Perry has ridiculed the idea of a border fence between the United States and Mexico calling it, "idiocy," "ridiculous," "nonsense," "absolutely not the answer."
Rick Perry supports a virtual fence as an alternative to a full-fledged Gulf-of-Mexico-to-Pacific fence.
But a high tech fence doesn't seem to work—it was a failure under both the Bush and Obama administrations.
