Mike Huckabee backs Obama on support for immigrants

Mike Huckabee has always been good on the immigration issue and I don't mind saying it.

Again today he said laudable things in cheering the aim of President Obama's decision to end deportation of young undocumented immigrants. He takes exception to the executive action as a legal matter, but softly by his standards.

Mike Huckabee told the crew at Fox & Friends this morning that he understood his stance on immigration was not particularly popular among Republicans, and he didn’t support and executive order for it, but the policy President Obama tried to implement for young undocumented people was something he had also attempted to pass in Arkansas. “You don’t punish a kid for what his or her parents did,” he argued, saying the policy was not a “job-killer.”
