Mike Huckabee has signed the NumbersUSA pledge of Roy Beck:
Numbers USA grid for Huckabee and Paul and other candidates including John McCain, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Lawrence Auster discussed Huckabee signing the pledge and more here:
“Huckabee further solidifies No-Amnesty Pledge”
One of my concerns on Thursday with Mike Huckabee’s No-Amnesty Pledge was that the Pledge which he formally signed on camera had questionable language that might allow giving legal status to illegals, while the stronger statement that supplemented the Pledge and precluded long-term legal status was only an informal commitment that Gov. Huckabee had made to Roy Beck and sealed with a handshake. That problem has now been fixed by a new document posted at Huckabee’s website, in which the two statements are combined under Huckabee’s byline. However, as I point out below, there still may be something of a loop-hole for temporary legal status. Here, first, is the document:
Ron Paul on immigration:
Ron Paul has also signed the NumbersUSA pledge
These are the only 2 candidates in Virginia in either party who has signed this pledge.
From Vdare on Ron Paul:
4 February 2008
Ron Paul has signed the NumbersUSA Immigration Enforcement Pledge, the same pledge signed earlier, (and much less credibly) by Mike Huckabee. The pledge says
“I pledge to oppose amnesty or any other special path to citizenship for the millions of foreign nationals unlawfully present in the United States. As President, I will fully implement enforcement measures that, over time, will lead to the attrition of our illegal immigrant population. I also pledge to make security of our borders a top priority of my administration.”
Whichever candidate you prefer, vote for them in the Virginia primary. The Virginia primary is winner take all. It is on February 12, 2008. We need to stop John McCain. McCain is still for amnesty and a pathway to legalization. McCain is still for open borders and mass legal immigration and chain migration. Letting the 12 to 20 million or possibly 30 million or more illegals stay means chain migration of possibly 100 million or more under current law. We must stop John McCain.
