ALGONA, Iowa–Texas Governor Rick Perry may have found a way back into the presidential conversation: immigration. Perry returned to Iowa Saturday for a two-day stop.
His visit comes after Perry met with President Barack Obama in Texas, giving Perry a prominent place in national discussions about what the United States should do with tens of thousands of children from Central America who were left on the border.
Perry keynoted an afternoon dinner for the North Iowa conservatives in Algona.
Two Iowa Republican elected officials raved about Perry’s performance, where he discussed the failure of the administration to secure the border better.
Sunday, Perry heads to Clear Lake for the Cerro Gordo GOP barbecue fundraiser.
