In another blow to the presidential aspirations of Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee was endorsed today by Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project.
As part of his announcement, Gilchrist also endorsed Huckabee’s 9-point Secure America plan, which would seal the borders and require illegal aliens to leave the country within 120 days or risk being banned from legal immigration to the US for a period of 10 years. “Governor Huckabee actually wrote a plan that I can embrace. [Huckabee’s] plan would open the dialogue and help begin the process of solving the illegal immigration problem.”
This development strongly refutes the recent criticisms made against Huckabee by the Romney and Thompson campaigns, which contend that he has been, and still is, soft on immigration.
