VIDEO: Bachmann ad on Perry and immigration

U.S. Rep.

Jul 31, 2020
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann struck out at presidential rival Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his past immigration policies and statements.
Bachmann referred to Perry’s statement at last week’s debate that opponents of the Texas Dream Act “didn’t have a heart,” which Perry has since walked back.
“Last week, we conservatives were accused of not having a heart,” Bachmann said. “Nothing could be further from the truth, but it’s just that we have a mind to go with that heart.”
Bachmann’s ad, which was posted Thursday represents yet another attempt by the candidate to regain the support of conservatives, who abandoned her in droves after Perry entered the race. Bachmann has been falling in most polls, although she’s recently seen a slight surge in Iowa.
Bachmann says in the video that immigration policies like in-state tuition for the children of undocumented immigrants have “created chaos on our borders.”
“We can’t settle for a president that thinks building a fence to secure the border is on its face ‘idiocy,’” Bachmann said, vowing to build a border fence and again referring to comments by Perry. “Just because we have policy differences doesn’t make us any less compassionate.”
