Huckabee: Hey, how about a hiatus on immigration from terrorist states?

A wriggling worm on the hook for all you anti-amnesty true believers out there in the “heartland,” i.e. South Carolina. Think of it as the old joke about the two men being chased by a bear: Huck doesn’t have to be convincing on this issue, he just has to be more convincing than McCain. So here’s your red meat — Tancredoism by way of a guy who thinks illegal-alien residents of Arkansas deserve tuition breaks that U.S. citizens from Alabama don’t. Everyone persuaded? Good. Then it’s … SECOND LOOK AT HUCKABEE!

“Every one of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 came here legally. Our government welcomed them in. Well, there’s a couple of things we’re going to do differently. I say we ought to put a hiatus on people who come here and give them permits if they come from countries that sponsor and harbor terrorists. Let’s say until you get your act in order and we’ll get our act in order.”
