It isn’t so much what this Mexican official is advocating to a group in Memphis, it’s the information on how the Little Rock Mexican consul office came to be:
Recall that in 2003, Arkansas governor Mick Huckabee asked Vicente Fox to build their new consulate in Little Rock. He even temporarily housed them in a state agency office at a rental rate of $1 per year.
Former Governor Huckabee is running for President and has been touting himself as the “conservative” candidate. Looks to me like he follows the McCain brand of conservative. To actively recruit and advocate breaking the law with illegal aliens is far from conservative in my book.
As for Arkansas’ Huckabee, let’s hear what a Mexican consul had to say:
“[I came to Arkansas to] continue the negotiations with the state and city authorities for making sure that we are going to inaugurate a Mexican consulate in the coming year in Little Rock… Governor Huckabee was a large part of this… He went to Mexico City and met with President Fox and proposed this… [when you get your MC we] don’t care if you are documented or undocumented… I like Arkansas… It is so green. It’s so clean, nice, with very warm, open people, and many friends of Mexico.”
You can read about “Huck’s” deal with the Mexicans:
Last year, Huckabee struck a deal with Mexican officials to house the consular office in a state agency office for $1 a year while the consulate facilities were being refurbished. At the time, some lawmakers complained the governor made the deal without notifying the Legislature.
