"Politics does not matter to a single mother working two jobs and needing medical care for her child or to someone wanting a pothole patched, he said... Politics, [Gov. Mike Huckabee] said, is of little consequence to someone who does not have a job...Obviously, his "compassion" seems to have interfered with his ability to form commonsense, American, public policy.
He said people complain illegal immigrants are taking their jobs. But, he said, when he asks individuals to give him names and addresses of people who want to work in a poultry-processing plant deboning chickens, no one does...
Huckabee agreed a "hot" issue today is illegal immigrants. He said the country’s borders need to be protected, not so much from those trying to get into this country to earn a living, but to keep out the person trying to sneak in a dirty bomb.Obviously, we don't want terrorists coming over. But, that doesn't mean we can't prevent illegal low-wage workers from coming over at the same time. Apparently Huckabee isn't concerned about the latter.
He said the country's 11 million illegal immigrants and the companies that employ them have created an underground economy. Without them, he said, our economy would collapse.I'd dearly love to call him a supporter of that "underground economy," but just because he appears unwilling to fight against corruption and other anti-American activity doesn't necessarily mean that he's involved in it. But, clearly, it doesn't appear to be much of a concern of his. He is obviously unfit not just for president, but for any elected office.
