Former Arkansas governor and current Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee supports "creating a pathway where people can have a form of restitution to make things right, to understand that laws have to be obeyed or some consequences have to be applied." He believes it "makes more sense than trying to deport 12 million people or build a 700 million, ehr...700 billion dollar fence."

Mike Huckabee says that "I tend to think that the rational approach is to find a way to give people a pathway to citizenship."

The quotes from Mike Huckabee contained in this post can all be viewed at a webpage about Mike Huckabee maintained by Americans for Better Immigration.

Though Huckabee denies that he supports amnesty, his words indicate that he does support amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Mike Huckabee is wrong. Millions of illegal aliens that deliberately violated a federal criminal immigration law (Title 8, Section 1325 of the United States Code) should not be given "a pathway to citizenship".

Mike Huckabee as Arkansas governor supported the award of state-funded college scholarships to illegal aliens

According to an article posted on January 12, 2005, at the online version of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette entitled "Huckabee plan would give aid to illegal aliens", former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee supported state-funded college scholarships being awarded to illegal aliens.

The article reported the following:

Gov. Mike Huckabee is proposing extending eligibility for state-funded college scholarships to illegal aliens who graduate from Arkansas high schools — an idea that several legislators predicted will go nowhere.

Huckabee said it’s "terribly unjust" for a child who arrived in Arkansas at a young age and graduated from high school to be denied state-funded college scholarships because of a "a status that he had no control over." "Do we want to change the future for these kids? Then let’s give them the opportunity. Let’s not say that our doors are open but our opportunities are closed," Huckabee said Tuesday in his State of the State Address to the General Assembly.

The governor never used the words "illegal alien" in his speech but referred to high school graduates’ "status," which confused some lawmakers. "We think he’s talking about illegal aliens, but we don’t know," said Sen. Dave Bisbee, a Republican who said he opposed the idea.

Huckabee’s spokesman, Rex Nelson, confirmed that Huckabee, also a Republican, was referring to illegal aliens.

Bisbee said he thinks his hometown of Rogers has done a better job welcoming Hispanic immigrants to its community than others in Arkansas. "So I’m not coming from a position of prejudice," Bisbee said. "But illegal is illegal... and even if the child came here when he was 3 years old or 4 years old, he’s still undocumented."

Rep. Denny Altes, R-Fort Smith, said citizens’ children should come first in college scholarship eligibility. "What kind of message are we sending to the people south of the border, you know?" Altes said. "Are we saying, ‘Yeah, come on,’ or are we saying, ‘No. There’s still a border there. ’"

. . .

In-state tuition rates are cheaper. In many states, including Arkansas, students who aren’t citizens and can’t prove their legal immigration status have to pay out-of-state tuition.

. . .

Rep. Keven Anderson, RRogers, said that if the state had an unlimited pot of money, he might feel differently. As it is, he’s against Huckabee’s proposal. "You’re potentially taking these scholarships away from someone who is here legally," Anderson said.

Huckabee is about as strong as a "Bumblebee" when it comes to defending our borders and stoping amnesty!! I rather send "The Tanc" to the border instead!

Give 'em hell at the Straw Poll!

Wantabee loves these criminal invaders...it's dishonsty, it's a scam, and it's a disgrace, how these politicians, keep trying to change the meaning of the word amnesty.
After reading that Huckabee doesn't believe that Tyson foods would use illegal aliens, because of the consequences, I consider this wantabee a complete joke.
