TAMPA, Fla. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says a massive fence along the U.S.-Mexican border isn't the answer to the nation's immigration challenges and instead says Washington should send thousands of border patrol and National Guard forces to patrol.

Perry faced tough immigration questions during Monday's Republican presidential debate. Perry says Texas offered incentives for illegal immigrants to become productive members of society, including in-state tuition rates for those who wanted to pursue higher education.

His rivals seized on his record, saying Perry was rewarding illegal behavior. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota says taxpayer dollars shouldn't pay for benefits for those who have broken U.S. laws. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman says Perry's position on the border fence is "treasonous." Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney adds that immigrants don't want government hand-outs.
