Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) suggested in an interview Friday that he supports the border security deal crafted by Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) and shunned the idea that a path to citizenship would be contingent on fully securing the border.

Asked on Fox News whether he sides with those two senators and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) or opponents of the immigration bill like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Huckabee chose the former.

"I'd say probably the Rubio, Corker, Hoeven [side]," Huckabee said.
