Mike Huckabee has signed a pledge to deport all illegal immigrants.
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.
“Some would say it’s a tough plan. It is, but it’s also fair and reasonable,” Mr. Huckabee said.
Just how iron clad is that pledge, Mr. Huckabee? Is it good through the primaries, through the general election, and through your term as president? Or, is it effective through the South Carolina primary this weekend? Or maybe it’s good in some states and not others?
This vow is dubious at best.
