This appears to me to be a very smart move by candidate Huckabee. Today theÂ campaign unveiled a “9-PointÂ Strategy for Immigration Enforcement and BorderÂ Security.” Â
Immigration was the major issue in which Huckabee seemed to be out of step with other cultural conservatives. Of course, it is impossible to say whether this represents a true Damascus RoadÂ conversion based-upon having talked with hundreds of ordinary citizens while campaigning; or is just a campaign strategists calculation.
Â I would wager a lot that he’s been getting an earful from guys like me wherever he’s been, though.
Here’s NRO’s resident immigration hawk Mark Krikorian on the plan. He seems favorably impressed.
