Perry Calls for More Border Security in Wake of Iran Terror Plot


Speaking in Indianapolis, one-time Republican presidential frontrunner Rick Perry said Wednesday an alleged Iranian-backed terror plot proves the U.S. must do more to address border security, The Indianapolis Star reports.

The Texas governor characterized the news as “business as usual” for Iran and said the plot was further proof that the rogue nation must not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.

“We cannot have national security until we have border security,” Perry said to more than 300 guests at a forum hosted by the Indiana Republican Party. “We need thousands more National Guard troops and border patrol, we need strategic fencing, we need predator drone surveillance aircraft.”

A federal indictment released Tuesday accused a naturalized, Iranian-born U.S. citizen of trying to contract with a Mexican drug cartel member to kill the Saudi Ambassador in Washington, D.C. The cartel member turned out to be a Drug Enforcement Administration informant.

Analysts say the Iran terror plot allows Perry to address his recent slide in the polls and pivot away from a sore point with the GOP faithful – providing in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants in Texas.
