America is finished kids.
The biggest reason to hate Newt!
I support Newt. I will vote for Newt.
This clip shows Newt at his worst.
The arrogance, the condescension, the demagoguery.
Why doesn’t he just answer the question?
If you close the border, prevent employers from hiring illegals, and cut off government handouts to illegals, then some illegals will go home. This is “self-deportation”. So what do you think about it, Newt?
The interviewer knew Newt was being an arrogant, pandering ass and so he just repeated the question.

This is the 10% of his immigration policy I don’t care for. However looking at the total package I say. GO NEWT GO!
Newt will require illegals to get Id cards if they don’t when they get caught they are gone. Newt will close the border with a fence and Homeland security being moved to the border so they can see Mexico from their window! Require businesses to do background checks to hire people! This will end illegals by default. They will leave!
ah yes legalize 20 million uneducated, unskilled, receivers of entitlements for humanitarian reasons and watch the other 300 million Americans get killed by drunks and low-life’s and get stuck with the bill to pay their way with free school, hospitals, welfare, food stamps and housing.
Sometimes you just have to draw a line at generosity and give first to those here legally. Each dollar given to an illegal in benefits or expenses is a dollar not given to a person here legally. The humane thing would be to allow the illegals to leave on their own without being fined or incarcerated and let their own countries take care of them.
Spread our generosity too thin and we will be unable to help anyone. Humane? Methinks not, humanity like charity should begin at home.
Newt Gingrich at his pandering, arrogant worst.
half illegals came over on visas. They are all from god knows where. Has any of the candidates addressed what they are going to do about this?
these people will never leave!
Newt the Compassionate Conservative?
Newt’s “ideas” on immigration are detestable, and the pandering to open-borders propagandist Jorge Ramos was nauseating. But it might be worse how he described Romney’s income as “$20 million a year automatic WITHOUT WORKING.” WTF? Like he didn’t work years ago to set up those investments? that he didn’t get double-taxed (corporate 35% and then Cap gains) on much of that income? I want Mittens defeated, but this is not the way to do it.
From where I came from, illegal immigration did and does take jobs away from US citizens. It also puts a tremendous strain on a Government already spending us into oblivion, meaning the ones who will truly be suffering are (again) US (taxpaying) citizens.
Gingrich is just wrong on this issue, if he truly means what he says.
I didn't like Bush's amnesty ideas and I don't like Gingrich's amnesty ideas. To me, it reflects an elitist attitude from those who either don't care about the middle class or are so detached they don't understand real America.
Damn it. I have said that neither man is ideal. Newt is still “better” however.
” ... The purpose of American immigration laws and policies is not to be either humane or inhumane to illegal immigrants. The purpose of immigration laws and policies is to serve the national interest of this country. ...”
Some of the same people who see Newt as extreme, grandiose, harsh, zany...criticize him for not being in favor of draconian measures to deal with illegal aliens.
One size does not fit all. Trying to make it so would be catastrophic, and we’d lose face trying to put it into practice against a constant parade of pathetic victims trotted out daily by the Dems, while the media hammered us. Newt’s plan is sensible and feasible, and less imperfect than the alternatives. Makes the best of a bad business, as the old timers used to say.
I realize that’s unpopular thinking around here, so for the record I do understand all parts of “illegal.”
I don’t like this. I can’t just forgive these types of remarks.
Romney may be lying,....ugh
