Huckabee backs tuition break for illegals

Posted By on Thu, Apr 14, 2011 at 4:09 PM

Again: When Mike Huckabee is right he's right.

And he's pretty well been right all along about a compassionate position toward children who entered the U.S. with undocumented parents, went to school, followed the rules and did well enough to go to college. He wouldn't penalize immigrant children, as Gov. Mike Beebe and the Jon Hubbards of the world would, by charging them higher tuition than other in-state residents.

The remarkable thing is that he's sticking with it in Iowa on the cusp of another potential run for president. Good for him.
