Immigration, abortion and climate change were the top issues at the "debate lite" involving all but three of the 17 major Republican candidates for president in New Hampshire on Monday night.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry — who may not qualify for the nationally televised debate Thursday night in Cleveland because he’s not one of the top 10 candidates in national polling — called the flow of immigrants crossing the border illegally “a serious wound.”
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum called for a 25 percent cut in the number of low-skilled immigrants coming into the country legally.
"Everyone else is dancing around it. I’m going to stand for the American worker,” Santorum said.
