Maryland Governor Praises Perry Stand on Immigration

September 21, 2011
Plain English Version

Governor Martin O'Malley

Governor Rick Perry of Texas is running for the Republican nomination for President. He is a conservative who condemns the Social Security program and wants “Washington to be inconsequential in the lives of Americans.”

However, at a recent luncheon at the Christian Science Monitor newspaper, Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley of Maryland praised Perry for supporting a Texas law that allows some illegal immigrants to attend state colleges at in-state tuition rates.

Governor O’Malley said: “One thing I do like about Perry is the fact that he recognizes that fair is fair and if a family is paying-in-state taxes, they should pay in-state tuition. I agree with that and I think he is right. I think the people of Texas are right.”

Governor O’Malley supports Barack Obama for President.

Maryland has a tuition law similar to the one in Texas, but it is disputed. It was signed in May 2011. It allows illegal immigrant students to attend state schools at in-state rates.  They must meet certain conditions. Opponents succeeded in suspending the law. It is on the ballot for a referendum in 2012.
