Martin O’Malley praises Rick Perry

John Fritze of the Baltimore Sun reports that Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley praised Texas Governor Rick Perry for a Texas law, similar to one he signed in Maryland, that gives in-state tuition to some illegal aliens:

“One thing I do like about Perry — I do like the fact that he recognizes that fair is fair and if a family’s paying in-state taxes, they should pay in-state tuition,” the Maryland Democrat said at the breakfast, hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “I think he’s right in making that assertion… Just because Congress can’t get things done and just because we can’t overcome our current affliction of xenophobia and have a rational immigration policy again, is no reason to condemn hardworking kids.”

The Maryland law is suspended now after a petition drive was successful in placing a measure on the ballot next year that could lead to its repeal.
