...[M]ike Huckabee again defended his decision as Arkansas governor to grant the children of illegal immigrants in-state tuition at state universities.We can already see the outlines of a future Huckabee run. He'll wave the Bible and pitch the woo at the rubes but where it matters he's no different than Jeb Bush... and maybe quite a bit worse than Mitt Romney, who isn't so great himself.
But he also went a step further, hinting that those children should be put on a path to citizenship — a position more in line with Democrats and DREAMers than some of Huckabee’s more conservative Republican peers who are also weighing bids for the presidency...
The question about immigration was put to Huckabee by a member of the audience at the Richmond Convention Center, who asked Huckabee to clarify remarks he made Sunday on “Meet The Press.” “You don't punish a child for something his parents did,” Huckabee said on that program, as he did again Tuesday.
