Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich Addresses Illegal Immigration and Amnesty (Video - Naples FL Townhall)
Posted on 11/26/2011 7:59:15 AM PST by TBBT
The Krieble Plan DOES put illegals into the head of the line in that they get to live here as citizens (except not vote), work here, enjoy our benefits, have kids here, while others that didnt sneak over are still stuck in Haiti, Sudan, and other countries. Seems like a HUGE REWARD for sneaking in...
Heres the exact quote, starting at the very last sentence of Page 27:
The Red Card would provide no path to citizenship or to permanent resident status at all. In accordance with the
founding American principle of equal opportunity under the law, anyone in the world can apply to be a U.S. citizen,
whether they are here as guest workers or not.
(I think that I’ll keep posting this every time that the Newt Girls try to defend him)
You might even be able to believe some of what Newt says..
Problem is which part?...
If you are p*ssed about Michele Bachmann flat-out lying about Newt “legalizing 11 million illegal immigrants”, spread this video of her from a previous debate.
Sounds very similar to Newt, eh? Talk about hypocrisy! She is more desparate to be president than Mitt Romney. If you support Newt, spread this around the social media websites, news organizations, etc... and lets finish her campaign off.
No Rinos más!
Bachmann has said she supports deportations, aside from that debate answer. Newt hasn’t said he supports illegals being deported, unless they’re criminals.
Again, when he has the forum (as in the bully pulpit) to explain in detail what he said, it becomes a no brainer. If he is nominated and elected to be #45, it would do all of us a huge service if he were to handle 50% of the press briefings. C-Span could become the highest rated network if he did.
Am I all on board? Nope. I will continue to make my decision when I walk through the doors on my precinct on January 31st. I plead to all to know your favorites but not to cast the concrete before you go to cast your vote. This one is so critical, so critical.
With that said, I can say there are two who cannot make it past today to be considered by me for the 31st.
Sorry Newt, anyone can talk and throw red meat. You’ve got a record that goes back into the 80s and 90s and when it comes to illegal immigration I can’t tell the difference between you and Ted Kennedy.
The Newtbashers continue to stick their fingers in their ears and yell “Nah, Nah Nah, Nah. We don’t want hear what Newt says, because it sounds very conservative. He has too many good ideas. He’s too smart and uses big words.”
I recommend everyone watch the video to make up their own minds.
Newt’s ideas sound good to me. In particular, he says controlling illegal immigration is a sequential process. He doesn’t expect people to trust the government, which is why the first step is controlling the borders.
"... Newt was just being Newt, his job was not to screw up and say something stupid. Give Newt enough time to talk and he will say something stupid.
I found two things interesting, first it seemed to me that the moderators were somewhat after Cain. Second the only standing O was when Newt said illegal should not be getting freebees. If Newt thought he could go soft on illegal immigration, last night surely changed his mind. "
Well both of my fears about Newt have been confirmed; He said something stupid and he is going soft on illegals.
Newt was an influential member of the 86 congress that passed the last amnesty that PROMISED no more amnesties and enforcement of our laws. Of all people Newt should know the only solution to the illegal problem is control the boarder and enforce the laws. We do not need another (amnesty) plan, he helped sell us a plan back in 86. It was a scam and I am NOT buying another scam plan. Sorry Newt, you blew it.
The problem is Newt isn’t believable. It’s not about being bashing him for the sake of it, as a supporter of Cain I will still vote for other conservative candidates if that’s who’s agreed upon nationally. But Newt, no way. Look at his record. He’s telling people what they want to hear to get votes.
Newt has repeatedly betrayed his wives and conservatives alike.
When the opportunity (and mega dollars) presented themselves, he had backed global warming, the individual mandate and Medicare D.
He is the ONLY candidate I trust less than Myth Romney.
Just what we need, a community jury in Los Angeles where the Mexicans will deport non-Mexicans.
“If you are p*ssed about Michele Bachmann flat-out lying about Newt legalizing 11 million illegal immigrants, spread this video of her from a previous debate.”
You’re darn right I’m angry at her. It’s pretty much a given that REAL NUMBER is around 30,000,000 - and once they apply, they are legal...at least to some extent. They will be in the system.
Cain is a good man and for a while I thought he would be the best candidate. What turned me around was the Cain/Gingrich “debate”. These two seemed to disagree on very little, but Newt clearly had a better grasp on the issues and can better articulate conservative solutions for government.
Newt has a long and conservative record in the congress. He has done more to push conservative principles into actual government reforms than any other person in the last 30 years. He was forced out of power by RINOs teaming up with Democrats. They hated him. The press portrayed him as evil. With enemies like that he can’t be all bad.
Yes, his baggage concerns me. Some of his positions concern me. But I think overall he is the best equipped to beat Obama and actually start to turn back out-of-control goverment as he did so well in the 90s.
I would pay money to watch Newt debate Zero. The people would be able to see a REAL intellectual espouse conservative principles and propose free market solutions to our problems. The press can portray him as evil (and they will) but they can never portray him as stupid.
Is he a little new agey? Yes, but I think a lot of young voters who got skunked by Obama will find this appealing. And they won’t care much about his dalliances.
President Elect Newt Gingrich makes more sense than any of the others, plus he has "Clarity". That's my point of view and I WILL NOT be convinced otherwise.
It doesnt make any sense. Newt wants a community jury in Mexican neighborhoods deciding on whom to give amnesty to.
This is exactly what will happen. Every single one of his past quotes will be dredged up and the media will have a field day with them. Personally I think that's unfair since they don't play the same game with the left but it'll very effective in gutting his campaign. I'm opposing him for his policies, which have gotten quite liberal over the years. The illegal alien solutions are just one of many.
That idea of Newt's is such a joke. Those boards will be stacked with La Raza members and liberal immigration lawyers. I fail to see how Gingrich is the smartest man in the room if he believes otherwise.
I don’t have a problem with that, who better to determine and weed out the CRIMINAL element among themselves than they. The Hispanics don’t want the criminals either, same as we hate the GETTO hoods and thugs. Sides, it ain’t really a JURY, you know, only perhaps a suggestion box.
