Perry's immigration problem will doom his campaign.

You can't win the Republican nomination in 2012 talking like this.
But 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.
That really pissed off Jim Geraghty.

Hey, Governor, if we wanted to hear suggestions that folks on the Right are heartless, we would have tuned in to watch a bunch of Democrats.

If you want to alienate Americans concerned about illegal immigration, the quickest and surest way is to suggest that they have cruel, draconian, xenophobic, or racist motives for their focus on border security.
Of course, it is cruel and racist and xenophobic to punish children for their parents' actions. Anyway, short of refudiating himself, I don't see how the Secessionist survives this.
