PELLA, Iowa — As the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan dominates the news, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, unlike his GOP rivals, is trying to connect the instability in Pakistan to the biggest issue in the Republican primary, immigration.

“A lot of Americans, sitting in Pella, Iowa, maybe look halfway around the world and say, ‘How does that affect me?'” he told reporters in this central Iowa town. “The way it affects them is that we need to understand that violence and terror is significant when it happens in Pakistan. It’s more significant if it could happen in our own cities, and it happens if people can slip across our border and we have no control over it. That’s exactly how it can affect us.”
