Back on April 24, 2007, the Mike Huckabee campaign uploaded this video address, where he said he was against "amnesty", then went on to outline a plan that everyone in their right mind - voters as well as millions of prospective illegal aliens in foreign countries - would perceive to be amnesty:
To address the question of what we should do about immigrants who entered the country illegally, I propose starting with the highest law of human behavior: do unto others as you'd have them do unto you.
But, that cannot mean amnesty. There must be consequences for illegal actions, for violation of our rule of law.
I propose that such individuals be required to register with state and federal authorities, pay financial penalties, and be given the choice of deportation or, undertaking the process of legal citizenship.
