Huckabee on Illegal Aliens – As of Today…
I really do not like politicians. They never seem to give you a straight answer, and if you are part of Clinton Inc., the standard operating procedure on any issue is to wet your finger and stick it up in the air. If you’re in Alabama, the answer to a question is yes; in Wyoming, it’s “maybe, but not really.” Nice.
The Washington Times, generally considered to be a conservative-leaning publication, has posted an article entitled Huckabee Vows to Send All Illegal Aliens Home. Mike, don’t mind me, but I don’t believe you. Stephen Dinan writes:
TIGERVILLE, S.C. — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee yesterday continued to move to the right on immigration during this year’s presidential campaign, signing a pledge to enforce immigration laws and to make all illegal aliens go home.
The pledge, offered by immigration control advocacy group Numbers USA, commits Mr. Huckabee to oppose a new path to citizenship for current illegal aliens and to cut the number of illegal aliens already in the country through attrition by law enforcement — something Mr. Huckabee said he will achieve through his nine-point immigration plan.
Mr. Huckabee signed the pledge in South Carolina, whose Saturday Republican primary is shaping up as the most important contest so far. Unlike the previous primaries and caucuses, which have been contested usually by just two candidates, four Republicans are making all-out efforts here: Mr. Huckabee, former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.
Malkin has all the info on his past actions. Right, what he did, not what he said.
