The mainstream news media is filled with awe that Newt Gingrich showed some "compassion" for illegal aliens in last night's GOP presidential debate. A look at his record while in Congress shows this is nothing new.
In fact, Gingrich's leadership in Congress is one of the reasons we have so many illegal aliens today who have been able to stay in this country for 25 years.
That's the supreme irony of Gingrich's pro-amnesty remarks in last night's debate. The man who helped ensure that illegal aliens from the 1980s and 1990s are still here in 2011 asked voters last night to consider the inhumanity of making illegal aliens leave this country after they have sunk such long roots here.
If, while Speaker of the House in the 1990s, Gingrich had shown any leadership in stopping illegal immigration, there would be very few illegal aliens still here from the 1980s and 1990s because they wouldn't have been able to hold payroll jobs.
Nobody pushed him last night to take a pro-amnesty stand. He volunteered it! By focusing on long-term illegal aliens, he took a big risk that the media spotlight (or at least the internet and talk radio spotlight) would shine on his long-term record with those illegal aliens.
What the spotlight will find is that Gingrich worked with Big Business lobbyists to make sure that employers could continue to hire illegal workers, and thus sink roots that would be used by pro-amnesty politicians to justify legalizing them today.
We hear the same arguments from the National Council of La Raza, from the ACLU, from the National Immigration Forum..

Then all who aid criminal trespassers in America should be charged under the new laws. The pro-illegal groups that aid them can be under the RICO Act and, along with all others, under the new federal laws, since its the federal immigration act they`re breaking. The federal power is Constitutionally directed TO defend our borders, force them to. Make it a felony to pass off forged ID as proof of citizenship in employment and go after the criminals who engage in this form of identity theft, producers and users. This would make it impossible for the illegals to get work or support,they`ll self deport in droves.
It’ll never happen because it makes too much sense. They’d rather go after grandma at the airport while leaving the borders wide open.
