Who was the only Presidential Candidate who committed to Senator Jeff Sessions’ 15 point action plan to restore law and order to America’s broken immigration system?
It’s outrageous that Huckabee’s commitment, in writing, would go unappreciated by so many conservative Republicans who claim to be so concerned about Illegal Immigration.
Huckabee pledged to build the fences on both the Northern and Southern borders by July 1, 2010. He should be applauded, not ridiculed.
It’s not often that I disagree with Michelle Malkin, but on this post she was totally wrong.
Here’s what Huckabee said about immigration during his CPAC speech on February 9th:
Let me also say that it is right for our country, in believing in our sovereignty, to demand that we have something that every nation on earth accepts and, in fact, assumes would be a part of its nation’s essentials — a secure border. How we can ever believe that we can be a sovereign nation or a free nation without securing our borders is beyond me.
And ladies and gentlemen, our national government has miserably failed to do something that most of us all across this country realize. This is a great nation that welcomes people. We’re not hostile. We’ve always been a nation of immigrants. Most of us come from ancestors who immigrated here from somewhere. But we’re also a nation of law, and we believe that if you knock on our front door and you’re hungry, chances are we’ll ask you to sign the guest book and we’ll try to feed you and help you. But if you break through the window in the middle of the night, God help you. (Cheers, applause.)
The sad thing is when our own government puts the ladder up against the window. It’s a little hard to blame the person climbing up the ladder as much as it is the government who puts the ladder and says, “Go ahead and climb.” (Cheers, applause.) Let’s fix what’s wrong.
I’ll bet that Mike Huckabee was on our side in this GOP platform fight over shamnesty euphemisms. I’d love it if Michelle would dig a bit deeper and find out exactly where both Huckabee and Romney stood in this fight. Now is the time to stand up for the VP who will fight John McAmnesty’s plans, because that VP could be the deciding vote in the Senate.
