Huckabee: Trump’s Plan to Vet Immigrants Is Nothing New
HUCKABEE: "What Donald Trump is talking about, he called it extreme vetting, actually it was pretty traditional vetting. If somebody goes over to Ellis Island they will find out for a long name this country, for most our history we didn't say open borders, we don't care who you are. We checked people for communicable diseases. If they had one we sent them back. If someone came over and they didn't have two references to their norm character, they were sent back. Ellis Island wasn't an open pipe it was a place where people were thoroughly screened. Date would be called extreme vetting, but there was nothing extreme about it."
