If CNN asks Mike Huckabee this question, it just might end his political career, as well as showing the millions who watch the debate just how lightweight the questions the mainstream media usually asks are. So, to avoid them actually doing both a public service and their job, I urge CNN not to select this video. Maybe the snowman has another probing question or something.

It concerns Mike Huckabee's strong support for illegal immigration. In 2003, on a visit to Mexico, he asked Vicente Fox to establish a consulate in Arkansas. Huckabee even arranged discount office space in a state office: just $1 per year ( ).

Since the consulate opened earlier this year, it's passed out countless "Matricula Consular" ID cards to illegal aliens. Those cards help illegal aliens send billions of dollars back home, helping to prop up the corrupt Mexican government. And, their consul even encouraged civic leaders to advocate for illegal immigration ( ).

Even the New York Times has alluded to Mexico overstepping its bounds ( ), and the FBI has called those ID cards a security risk ( ).

Did I mention that Arkansas is home to major poultry processing and other firms that are widely believed to employ large numbers of illegal workers?

UPDATE: Here's an overview of the issue which includes the news that a consortium of businesses agreed to pay Mexico's bills for the consulate:
