Mike Huckabee on Fox News said that in his immigration plan, when people go back to their country they would come back to the US within days. They would get guest worker back to the US immediately. Huckabee also implied, that anyone in the world would get a guest worker permit within days of applying.
Huckabee came out for open borders. This is the reductio ad legal, i.e. if its legal its good. Huckabee made clear that he was for open borders on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.
Auster had already realized this was Huckabee’s real plan, i.e. touchback amnesty:
He wrote in his latest book that some of the most outspoken critics of illegal immigrants are driven by a “passion sparked by the unholy flames of racism.”
==Greg Siskind, apparent supporter of Amnesty, says Huckabee plan is amnesty and removes current law bars on re-entry by visa overstays.
Governor Mike Huckabee, the emerging Republican front runner, has released his immigration plan and hidden in what seems to be a pledge to oppose any kind of amnesty is this little nugget:
- Policies that promote or tolerate amnesty will be rejected.
- Propose to provide all illegal immigrants a 120-day window to register with the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services and leave the country. Those who register and return to their home country will face no penalty if they later apply to immigrate or visit; those who do not return home will be, when caught, barred from future reentry for a period of 10 years.
This sure seems to say that the current bars on reentry for overstays would no longer apply under the Huckabee plan. That would be a major development and certainly welcome news.

==Huffpo take on Huckabee on Fox
Huckabee’s immigration plan: send people to the back of the line, but then speed up the process getting people in. So, legal immigration, but a plan that continues the “sustained invasion” that people like Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck believe is happening.
WALLACE: Let’s turn to immigration, because you put out a new immigration plan this week. You called for building…
WALLACE: … a border fence, for cracking down on employers, for telling illegals to go home.
But last year in an interview, you said something somewhat different. You said this, “I think that the rational approach is to find a way to give people a pathway to citizenship.”
Governor, in your new plan, the only path is to go home and to get on the back of the line, which, of course, would mean years of waiting. Why the change?
HUCKABEE: Well, I don’t think there’s an inconsistency. When I said a pathway, I didn’t say what the pathway was.
Here he is being cute, as is typical. He will in a few sentences down support touchback amnesty as the path. But first he winds himself up for this.
I now believe that the only thing the American people are going to accept — and, frankly, the only thing that really makes sense — is a pathway that sends people back to the starting point.
This is a pure lie as he shows next. For Huckabee words are sounds.
But this idea of the waiting years — no, I don’t agree with that.
Anyone can get back in. This is amnesty. Its also unlimited entry. Huckabee also said he would end chain migration of adult brothers and sisters. But he is saying here they can get in on their own, just ask and its instant approval. All the 19 hijackers, some of them who had overstayed visas, would get instant visas.
In fact, look, if we can get a credit card application done within hours, if we can get passports done within days, if we can transact business over the Internet any place in the world within seconds, do a background check instantaneously — it’s our government that has failed and is dysfunctional.
It shouldn’t take years to get a work permit to come here and pick lettuce. So part of the plan that I have is that we seal the borders. You don’t have amnesty and sanctuary cities.
In just the next sentences Huckabee in fact says everyone gets touchback amnesty. Huckabee doesn’t maintain consistency in any conversation. This is his own uninterrupted response. He contradicts himself on his own. He also shows his contempt for us.
You do have a pathway that gets you back home.
But that pathway to get back here legally doesn’t take years. It would take days, maybe weeks, and then people could come back in the workforce.
Huckabee is proposing touchback amnesty. Huckabee’s immigration plan saying no amnesty is an intentional lie. It shows the disdain Huckabee has for his evangelical supporters. Huckabee has lied for years and gotten away with it and he has contempt for the people who let him do that. Huckabee now believes he can say and do anything without any consequence.
Let me tell you why that’s important. Two reasons. Number one, the American people say, “Do something. Do it now. We don’t want to have this country ignoring the illegal problem.” I get it.
Secondly, I want people who are in this country to hold their heads up high. You know, right now there are a lot of people who really are here because they’re trying to feed their families. I don’t begrudge them that.
The result is they take away our ability to have job security. Young adults can’t have children because they don’t have 25 years of job security. The result is our young man have below replacement fertility. 50 percent of Mexicans in the US get welfare. We are paying them to have children and taking away our young people’s chance. The result is we go extinct.
I say every day I thank God I’m in a country people are trying to break into, not break out of.
The reason is because we don’t let them in. The ones trying to come here individually end up making it like what they came from as a whole. That is why our schools are failing, because the immigrants are failures in schools. They also ruin them, ER’s, work, factories, etc. for everyone else. The result is we lose what we have in every institution and every part of life.
Huckabee also leaves it to God to do the math on immigration. Huckabee breaks America without paying attention, and then God owns the America that Huckabee has broken. Huckabee goes on to his next pardon.
But let’s give them a means by which they can get here through the door legally,
And then they will destroy what we have as everyone is seeing before their eyes.
and when they’re here they don’t have to hide, they don’t have to keep their heads down and hope nobody catches them, they have their heads held high.
They are proud to destroy what we have and take it from us.
Everyone living within the borders of the United States ought to do so with dignity and with a sense of pride, not a sense of fear.
If the US is destroyed, what pride do those who did the destroying have? What pride do those who allowed it to be destroyed have? Apathy is suicide, on the individual level and the country level. The suicide of whites as a group is the suicide of their countries and civilization. If whites would rather avoid being called racist (white nationalist, Nazi, white supremacist, etc.) than save their civilization by stopping all immigration then they are cowards who will lose everything.
Huckabee’s plan is Huckabee does what makes him feel good in the moment. When Huckabee breaks it, God owns it. That was Huckabee’s approach to the 700 pardons including Wayne Dumond. Huckabee washed his hands and let the women be raped and killed by his amnesty of criminals. Huckabee’s immigration plan, both legal and touchback amnesty is the same thing, except our entire civilization dies as well.
