TX: Gov. Rick Perry addresses Latino govt. officials group

TX: Gov. Rick Perry addresses Latino govt. officials group...Gov. Perry is expected to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) about the growing Hispanic population in Texas. -- The non-partisan group is holding its national convention in San Antonio. The country's changing demographics, growing educational needs and new sources of energy are the other main topics...Hispanic leaders in Texas have criticized Perry recently for sponsoring legislation that would require voters to produce a photo ID before voting and forcing local law police and sheriffs to enforce federal immigration laws. Critics say these measures will lead to racial profiling of Hispanics. [Perry addressing this group is like asking Arnold to address the Council for Abstainence Only. It's like David Duke addressing the NAACP]
