Rick Perry on Federalism and Immigration

“You’ve got to have a president, first, who’s committed to securing the border.”

When Governor Perry and I sat down last week in Orange County, CA, I wanted to drill down on two areas of interest for conservative voters.

First, in his book Fed Up!, Governor Perry repeatedly returned to the idea of federalism, but few people have really explored that with him.  This transitioned into some questions on immigration, his views on amnesty, and what role the states have to play in immigration laws with do-nothings in Washington.

Editor’s note: Watch Part One and Part Two of Erick’s interview with Gov. Perry.
