Rick Perry tells Newsmax that he regrets saying during the last debate that opponents of the DREAM Act lacked a heart.
"I probably chose a poor word to explain that for people who don’t want their state to be giving tuition to illegal aliens, illegal immigrants in this country -- that's their call and I respect that.
I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word and it was inappropriate.”
That being said, he still defended the decision, if not the language.

Perry's controversial answer during the debate.
"If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they've been brought there by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."
