ROCK HILL, South Carolina (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee called Tuesday for suspending immigration from countries that sponsor or harbor terrorists.
On campaign trail for South Carolina’s Jan. 19 primary, Huckabee — a Baptist preacher and former Arkansas governor who won the Iowa caucuses with his populist rhetoric and support from evangelical
Christians — sharpened his rhetoric on immigration and embraced a tougher measure than any of his rivals have so far.
«There’s a couple of things we’re going to do differently,» Huckabee told supporters. «I say we ought to put a hiatus on people who come in here … if they come from countries that sponsor and harbor terrorists.
La Política rightly points out that Cuba is on the U.S. State Department’s list of terrorist states.
I wonder if Governor Huckabee is aware of that and the implications of his new proposal.
