DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid for automated telephone calls in Iowa accusing rival Rick Perry of contributing to illegal immigration.
The call was paid for by Romney's campaign. It's the first paid attack by the former Massachusetts governor on Perry, the governor of Texas.
Arizona border-county Sheriff Paul Babeu speaks on the call, noting Perry's opposition to a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border and his support for in-state tuition for children of illegal immigrants.
Babeu says — quote — "Rick Perry is opposing a border fence and granting in-state tuition benefits to illegal immigrants. Rick Perry is part of the illegal immigration problem."
Iowa holds the leadoff nominating caucuses on Jan. 3.
