Newt Gingrich: "We are not going to deport 11 million people"
Politico ^ | 12/2/10 | KENDRA MARR

Posted on 12/02/2010 1:05:36 PM PST by WilliamHouston

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a bold goal for the next decade: Overhaul the country's immigration system so that every worker in the United States is legal.

"We are not going to deport 11 million people," Gingrich said Thursday as he kicked off his first forum on Latino issues. "There has to be some zone between deportation and amnesty."

A possible presidential candidate, Gingrich stressed that his target of establishing an entirely legal work force is "not a call for amnesty." Rather, he said, it's about applying common sense to the immigration debacle.

"Dos y dos son cuatro" (two plus two equals four), he said to chuckles. . .

If the GOP runs Newt Gingrich in 2012 on Juan McCain's 2008 amnesty platform, they can get used to dealing with Obama for another 4 years. I'm not going to vote for another Bush or McCain under any circumstances.

The zone between deportation and amnesty is amnesty.

Sounds like Newt is trying to whittle the numbers back down some.

Newt got ‘religion’, called social justice... and it is just fine to ‘steal’ from Americans.

Newt lets out a RINO call.

I've voted for my last RINO. The country can go Marxist before I vote RINO again.

Go Sarah, go!

There is.

Make it impossible for shady employers to hire illegals, get rid of birthright citizenship for the children of illegals, and deny them benefits.

OK, keep one benefit for them - a free bus ticket to the border.

But the point is, they will self-deport if the first three are done.

BTW, Newt, you just kissed your slim chances of winning the GOP nomination in 2012 goodbye. The GOP is not interested in someone who wants to out-McCain McCain.

That's right Newt, we can't deport all of them, BUT we can take away all the free crap they get coming here, make life hell getting a job, force pay at the time of service for medical care, and stop handing out houses, education and money like damn fools.

If there are no freebies, or anchor babies, they will go home.

You don’t have to deport ANYBODY!!!! Just cut off the government teat and start fining the hell out of anyone caught knowingly hiring an illegal. They will find their own way home or to Canada.

Newt Gingrich: "We are not going to deport 11 million people"

Same old crap from the same old phony. Enforce the laws and see how many self-deport, then come back and tell me how many you can't deport. Oh yeah, you also might want to erect the border fence/wall.

I don’t know whether it’s possible to deport 11 million people or not. But is it just possible, pretty please with sugar on top, that we could deport Newt?

He did something good once. But as Cromwell said of the Long Parliament, he has since hung around long enough to have more than made up for it.

So, what's your solution??

....Newt is right and so is everyone else...it's impossible to deport 11 million people....many of whom have been living here for years...and working....and paying taxes....And what's with the "Stick with Obama"...instead of a Newt or a McCain...that's how we got Obama in the first place...

What we’ll do, Newt, is induce large-scale self-deportation through employment/hiring enforcement, select deportations and a lack of amnesties for at least the next thirty years.

No one is talking about deportation, Newt!

Just charge them for all the back taxes they owe, (like anyone of US would have to pay if WE cheated) and they will LEAVE ON THEIR OWN!!!! Period!

Until then this just nothing talk.

Take the damned political incentive out of it. Make it the law that a person has to be a US citizen for 18 years before ever voting in an American election.

And to keep on coming.

There is no probable GOP candidate for 2012 that would deport all the illegals. That’s simple fact.

Politico is unintentionally explaining how we got this screwed up. America is shouting for real conservatives to drive the party and the left is trotting out the old tired whores that gave them the power. This is very thin and tired.

Report Gingrich to the Bush Clan.

He’s taking away some RINO votes from the frontrunner Romney.

It’s unfair.

Why are they grabbing everything that is already accorded for Romney?

Gingrich is so selfish. He already has the primary votes of the “climate change believing” RINOs.

Now, Gingrich also wants to steal the Amnesty-loving GOP voters?

How greedy and selfish can Gingrich get?

It can’t be. Romney must stand up to Gingrich and claim what is rightfully his in the first place. After all, Romney’s the next in line after McCain.

Which is why they’ll need to be driven out by other means. Operation wetback deported far fewer than those who left on their own.

20 year prison term for employers who hire them will solve 90% of the problem.

That's right....and that includes Palin...

The heart of the matter is a "path" toward citizenship.

I believe everyone is in agreement with this though some lefties want them simply deemed "citizens".

Contrary to popular talking points, it is possible to deport those who are here illegally.

One point of disagreement regarding Illegals “paying taxes”. If you're referring to sales taxes, then I agree. However, I don't believe they're paying income taxes as many of these people are working for cash.

How about we just deport you, Newt. Current law should be tried because it hasn’t been so far.

The US people do not want, nor do we need 11+ million foreign unlawful invaders.

How is that so hard to comprehend? The only thing I will give him credit for is at least being honest about his intent.

We’re not asking for them to be deported, numbnuts.

Penalize anyone who hires them, make anyone wanting government services provide proof of citizenship, and they’ll deport themselves.
