Skip to comments.Newt calls for ‘humane’ immigration policy
Posted on 11/22/2011 9:03:03 PM PST by South40
I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who have been here a quarter century, who have children and grandchildren, who are members of the community, who may have done something 25 years ago, separate them from their families and expel them. Im prepared to take the heat for saying, lets be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality so that they are not separated from their families.
He added, I do believe if youve been here recently and have no ties to the U.S., we should deport you.
Newt did himself significant harm tonight on immigration among caucus and primary voters, tweeted Tim Albrecht, the spokesman for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R).
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) called the proposal amnesty.

Leftist climate change and now this. Perry is much better than it guy. But Newt can yap.
Solve the problem make the illegals legal!!!.. /snark.. /snide.. /sarc..
Sarah should have got in the race.
When Newt steps in it, he really steps in it. Tonight he sounded like he was to the left of LaRaza Rick on this issue. I don’t know how someone living here illegally for 25 years is not breaking the law, but somehow in Newt’s mind it isn’t.
Perry = you have no heart.
Newt = you are not humane.
Bite me to both.
who may have done something 25 years ago,
Every second they stay here is a second that they continue to break the law. Newt, you are a moron. You and Obama should share the award for the most overated intellect. Newt needs to spend more time with his mistress and leave the country in more competent hands.
All he did was admit he has the same immigration policy as Herman Cain. Not really worth of the 50 threads it will warrant.,,,,,
Maybe it isn't too late. If voters can figure out how to spell Murkowski, Palin is a snap.
In spades! Will NOT vote for him.
Newt OTOH, watched as Perry torpedoed his campaign, yet he went on to make the same mistake!
Political suicide is political suicide, whether you're a sitting governor or a former speaker of the house.
Newt has more baggage (private and political) than the lost and found at United Airlines and both the left and right have just started sifting through it.
So what is he going to do about the border? I know people with relatives on the Mexican side of the border who refuse to cross the border to visit them in Mexico due to the violence. The violence is spilling over to the US side of the border.
This is sure to put a dent in the chameleons poll numbers.
Why would the so called conservative party want another rino in office anyway?
The serial adulterer stepped on a land mine tonight.
It's too late to appear on the ballot in several states including NH.
That is basically the same position that Sarah Palin had.
Let us all not forget ( and how easily some of the fickle FReepers do that ) that Sarah in her Univision interview that it’d “ not be humane” to deport all of the illegals.
