Huckabee: GOP Needs to Clarify It’s Not ‘Targeting One Nationality’

2016 contender Mike Huckabee told Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon the GOP needed to emphasize that its immigration views were not solely a reaction to Hispanic immigration.

“If it were just people coming to pick tomatoes and make beds and go to work somewhere to get a better job, that’s one thing,” Huckabee said. “But we have people coming from Arab countries, China, all over the world. They just know that if they want to get in and don’t have the necessary paperwork and standing to do it, they can come to the southern border and walk right across.”

“I do think Republicans have to be very clear to separate, that we’re not against a particular nationality of people coming,” he continued. “We just want to have control of our border.”
