Noting that he might not agree 100 percent on immigration with Huckabee, the firebrand illegal immigration opponent said Huckabee's recently released immigration plan won him over.
"The governor has a plan and I appreciate his plan. That's why I'm supporting him. He's one of the few who's actually brought forth a plan and gone public with it. It shows to me that he's willing to engage in the tough love necessary to fix this problem," Gilchrist said.
Gilchrist, whose organization is separate from the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, has drawn protests in appearances at college campuses in recent months for his views on strict illegal immigration laws. Unlike the MCDC, whose primary role is to park volunteers along the U.S.-Mexico border to report jumpers to Border Patrol agents, the Minuteman Project calls attention to enforcement of state and federal laws relating to immigration.
Huckabee last week announced a get-tough immigration plan, proposing to construct a border fence with surveillance cameras by July 1, 2010, calling for an increase to the number of Border Patrol agents and imposing steep penalties on employers who hire illegal immigrants.

Next we’re gonna see Pat Robertson endorse Rudy.
Finally. Something we agree on.
I have no idea what would possess Gilchrist to do this. Maybe Huckabee’s got some dirt on him.
Minuteman or Minuetman?
That already happened. But you knew that.
I know what you mean. I just feel homesick all the time, sigh.
First Kirkorian and now Gilchrist. Huckabee appears to have the approval of our leading conservative experts on how to deal with the illegal immigration crisis.
Activists love it when politicians stroke their egos.
How much did he pay them? Something smells...there are about 7 candidates in this race who are better than the Huckster on this issue.
A single issue persepctive from the minuteman. The real problem isn’t what kind of plan they can roll out, it is how hard they will push for it when it runs into opposition. Is it a plan from the heart or from the poll? Actions speak louder than words and Huckabee’s past actions are at odds with his “plan.” I don’t buy it.
Okay, next we’re gonna see Yasser Arafat win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Damn, just damn...
Hell while they were buying BS they should have grabbed the Romney special and gotten 2 for 1...
Then so will Al Gore.
Weird duck this minuteman guy.
You can say that again! This simply must be a joke!
It’s like Samarai Rolle endorsing Ellis Hobbs, boy.
Someone wake me, please ...
Makes me feel like 1991 all over again. The GOP is self destructing by offering such a weak candidate, which will lead us to 4-8 more years of a Clinton. Makes me puke.
The gov is lying about his plan. Look at his actual record. He’s against the very thing the minutemen hold dear.
Are we ever going to change this country and finally elect someone that is actually going to do the right thing?
I haven’t seen much evidence of it.
