Photo: Rick Perry Event Asks for Citizenship Proof
Want to attend a Republican primary event for Rick Perry in New Hampshire? If so, make sure you bring proof of citizenship – no proof no admittance.
In one of two events the Republican former-front runner was holding today in New Hampshire the requirement for proof of citizenship was required allegedly due to the location. The town-hall meeting was being held at defense contractor Granite State Manufacturing’s site.
The requirement that only ‘citizens’ enter a defense contractor site is not new but it makes the issue of immigration once again become front and center for Perry.
After getting a lot of negative flack for the policy, Perry’s staffer said non-citizens would be allowed in but would be assigned a Granite employee to escort them in.
Why Perry would choose a site for campaigning that would draw this much attention is unclear.
