Chuck Norris Facts: Chuck Norris can solve the immigration debate

Yesterday, a video of Chuck Norris being interviewed by Geraldo Rivera was making the rounds. The clip shows Chuck Norris – yes the same Chuck Norris who has counted to infinity, twice – talking about his ideas for immigration reform.

Check it out:

Not that I have ever doubted Chuck Norris’ superhuman powers (the man can slam a revolving door, after all) but since he is a very well known uber-Conservative advocate and supporter of GOPers like Mike Huckabee, I kind of assumed his stance on immigration would be less, I don’t know, sensible.

But Chuck Norris seems pretty down to earth about the issue in this clip. While I don’t necessarily support his “plan”, its a breath of fresh air to hear him acknowledge that undocumented immigrants are real people who are living in this country and trying to make a better life for themselves. It stands in stark contrast to the vitriol of folks who insist that undocumented immigrants are all criminals, out to kill the “America” we know and love.

Its worth noting that Chuck Norris thinks Mike Huckabee, his personal friend who he backs politically, would be open to a pathway to legalization for undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

Ahem, GOP, listen to Chuck Norris – he knows all.

As Andrea Nill notes at ThinkProgress:

It wouldn’t be easy, but Huckabee and the Republican Party would probably benefit from regaining the trust and respect of Latino voters.

Meanwhile, Chuck Norris will be busy winning games of Connect 4 in three moves and waiting for a sensible debate on immigration.

You’ve been warned.

    In my heart of hearts, I believe that Huckabee supports a pathway to legalization for the undocumented. In the first Republican debate, Huckabee came out in support of the Dream Act, citing that “we are a better country than that,” when rebutting a fellow Republican that had made a Restrictionist comment against Dream. Many pollsters thought that the line helped propel the Huckabee campaign to it’s early gains, and the audience applauded appreciatively.

    Unfortunately for Huckabee, he made a very wrong political calculation. Somehow, Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, got his hooks into Huckabee, and convinced him that it would help him politically if he changed his tune, and came out in strong support for Krikorian’s 10 point plan to elect a President, based on an anti-immigrant agenda. Huckabee adopted the plan and tried to make it his own, and that was the beginning of the end of his chances to get elected. I am sure that Huckabee, who by all indications is quite smart, will not make that error again.
