Email, Lucy Nashed, press secretary, Gov. Rick Perry, June 17, 2014

From: Selby, Gardner (CMG-Austin)

Sent: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 10:20 AM

To: Lucy Nashed; Lucy Nashed

Subject: Fox & Friends today, two topics

  

When Gov. Perry said this morning that he flagged “this issue” in 2012 and has yet to get a response from the Obama administration, was he referring to the letter described in this past fact check? If not, what was he referring to?

 

The governor also said to Fox & Friends: “We have record-high numbers of Other Than Mexicans being apprehended at the border.” How did he reach this conclusion?

 

Thanks.

The Other Than Mexicans data comes from DPS – would refer you to them for details.
