Don't expect any major agreements on immigration when President Obama runs into Texas Gov. Rick Perry in Dallas on Wednesday. The Democratic president and the Republican governor — a former and perhaps future presidential candidate — have clashed for years on immigration. That isn't likely to change as they dispute how to address the sharp spike in illegal border crossing by migrants from Central America. Perry wants Obama to dispatch National Guard troops to the border. Obama has asked Congress to approve $3.7 billion for more judges, attorneys and detention centers as part of a plan to speed up deportation times.
