Huckabee Goes LCD

Via Andrew Sullivan, Huckabee caves to the right on immigration and now shows what a tough-guy asshole he can also be to immigrant children.

Mike Huckabee wants to amend the Constitution to prevent children born in the U.S. to illegal aliens from automatically becoming American citizens, according to his top immigration surrogate — a radical step no other major presidential candidate has embraced.

Mr. Huckabee, who won last week's Republican Iowa caucuses, promised Minuteman Project founder James Gilchrist that he would force a test case to the Supreme Court to challenge birthright citizenship, and would push Congress to pass a 28th Amendment to the Constitution to remove any doubt.

This one kind of frightens me because of the ramifications of proving citizenship all the way across the board. I can envision revoking citizenship to those who have been here for years or expanding this to encompass situations I can't even imagine. I don't like it.
