Romney Ad Rips Perry Over In-State Tuition For Illegals


The mittens have come off over at Romney campaign headquarters, as they launched a web ad ripping Texas governor Rick Perry over his support for granting discounted in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens:

The slickly produced ad shows Perry receiving effusive thanks from Mexican President Vincente Fox… followed by Romney’s declaration, during the Orlando GOP debate, that Perry’s policy amounts to a “almost $100,000 discount” over four years of college “if you’re an illegal alien.”

“If you’re a United States citizen, of one of the other 49 states, you have to pay $100,000 more,” as Romney pointed out.  “That doesn’t make sense to me.”
