Re: Huckabee Surprise on Immigration

Lot’s of skepticism among commenters at Hot Air on the Huckabee plan. I understand the reaction, given his track record, but we should always be happy to accept converts; as the Boss has said, “Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.” The key to a political change of heart, though, as with Romney on abortion, is to explain how the conversion came about — kind of like showing your work in math class, not just giving the right answer. Huckabee’s staff seems to have done a pretty good job so far — now it’s up to the candidate to internalize their work and be able to expound on it convincingly.

Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995.
