Newt Gingrich called for a middle path on immigration reform – implying a limited amnesty – as he made his presidential campaign pitch to the Republican-friendly Hispanic 100 on Thursday at the Newport Beach’s Balboa Bay Club.

“Both sides are wrong,” he said to the 300 gathered at group’s annual black-tie gala. “Those who say, ‘Kick everybody out’ – they’re wrong. Those who say, ‘Give amnesty to everyone’ – they’re wrong.

I knew it was just a matter of time before Newt would do or say something stupid (again) and basically destroy that little Mo that he had going on.

Newt supporters, there is a conservative running at the front of the pack that could use your support and HE doesn’t want to sell out your nation to the third world invaders.

His name is Herman Cain.

Middle Path?! Don’t even want to hear it. Newt’s looking to get the indies. He’ll soon find that his numbers will suffer with this “middle path” BS.

Newt needs to spend a week at the side of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Newt is insulated from the immigration problem.

“Way to stick both feet in your mouth at the same time Newt.”

Considering some of his past stunts he’s probably used to it.

We shouldn’t expect anything else from him. He’s been soft on immigration all along. This is part of his beltway elite mentality.

“In the end, we must be a country in which everybody who is here is here legally. And we must recognize that some people who came here legally are deeply embedded in our culture.”.....

For those who came here legally, I agree. I am strongly in favor of legal immigration and approve of hard-working, educated immigrants who come here and become part of the American melting pot. For those who enter illegally, my feelings are the exact opposite. Any illegal caught on American soil should be fingerprinted and permanently barred from all paths to citizenship and then expelled from our country and billed for the costs of tossing his tail back south of the border. Those recaptured should be forced to work off the costs of enforcing the law against them, and then tossed out of our country.

I guess Newt hasn’t been paying attention to Perry’s recent difficulties.

“Both sides are wrong,”

Does Newt have a political death wish? Everytime we start do like him he does something assine like this.

Is this line correct, or a transcription/typo error?

"And we must recognize that some peopel who came here legally are deeply imbedded in our culture.."

One would indeed hope so..

One answer is a 6-Month Temporary Work Visa.... HOWEVER - the solution is to make it so that you CAN NOT get one of those, nor renew one, IN the US.

All illegals would have to return to Mexico to get one.

Screen them (no felons, or criminals, &c.) and then track them. The fees could include the price of a bus ticket home to get that renewal. Failure to comply means no more American dream for you, Hombre.

It’s just a thought. Try not to flame me too hard.

There is no "MIDDLE PATH", ILLEGAL ALIENS are in the country

I L L E G A L L Y!

What is it about the word "ILLEGAL" these half-wit's REFUSE to understand?

EVERYWHERE AND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD, if you are in their country ILLEGALLY, you are ARRESTED and DEPORTED!

How dare Newt say that LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, who want to uphold the rule of law ARE W R O N G for wanting to treat ILLEGAL ALIENS the same way they are treated everywhere else in the world and for wanting to protect our borders and our OWN CITIZENS!

Someone needs to knock some sense into Newt's head. It looks like he has crawled back on that couch with the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi
