I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people whove been here for a quarter of a century [and] separate them from their families and expel them, Gingrich said during a discussion about illegal immigration and border security. I do believe we should control the border. I do believe we should have very severe penalties.

Yep! Don’t want to separate them from their parents. The biggest argument to keep the whole family in the US, to not separate the children born here from their parents. Ok, we don’t separate them. Send them all back to the hell hole their parents came from and allow them (the children) to come back when they are old enough to leave there.

Many illegals come to this country pregnant just so they can stay because their child is born here, get rid of that incentive and some of the illegal problems might be solved.

Call me crazy but I couldn’t do that to families either and I’m no Gingrich supporter. I don’t think it’s a magnet either because he’s talking about grandfathering these people in not that we would allow newcomers to stay.

I haven’t always believed this way. I just think that this country has always been about both justice AND mercy. It’s easy to be angry with them for sneaking into our country and using up our resources, I know that. However, if they have helped this country and have been good people here and have made a life and love this country I think we can work with them going through the citizen process.

“Nute, we don’t have to hunt them down and deport them.

Stop giving them illegal jobs and free stuff, and they’ll go home.”

Great point. How sad that so many freepers promote the strawman that “You can’t round them all up...ITS IMPOSSIBLE!” as if that was the only option.

As Jim says FUNG! You REALLY stepped into it tonight!

See tagline. It’s a quote from Herman Cain saying exactly that.

“I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who’ve been here for a quarter of a century … [and] separate them from their families and expel them,”

That’s why you deport the whole famn damily, Dipwad.

Wow! Looks like the DAR is racist! Not one clap for Cain! I am glad I never joined them, or the Colonisl Dames, though I am eligible on both sides of my family! A bunch of phony fluff after all!

I am befuddled now...Newt shoots self in foot. Perry’s dream act. Herman who thinks Cuban is a language. Michelle falling in the polls. Santorum is not catching on. Romney, the master of flip flops. Is there anyone left standing to trump ozero?

I could do it. I’d have fun doing it. My family (grandparents) came into this country LEGALLY, and it took many years to actually accomplish. Newt’s whole 25 years thing is nonsense. Just a smokescreen. No way you can actually say “25” years, YOU stay, 24 years, YOU GO. He said we should deport people who came in “recently”, so how recent is recent? He said we shouldn’t “tear apart families”. So, have a kid, and you’re golden? It’s ridiculous. So basically my family has to go through the paperwork and trouble to come in LEGALLY for years, but come in illegally, join a church (Newt didn’t say which denomination though), have a kid, and BOOM, compassionate Newty will overlook our crime. This standard would legalize millions of illegals who happened to have anchor babies.

Ooooh man. I never thought Newt would step on it this bad. I thought he had the whole “speak the conservaative language” strategy all setup. Guess not.

Newt did specify that he would seal the boarders before he did anything else. And he said he would deport the new illegal aliens. I don’t agree with the amnesty for all, but I don’t think he will ever get that far. Who the heck are we going to support????? Immigrants that get their medical degrees here, should be required to stay here for a certain number of years.

Well said. Newt's book title: "Drill Here, Drill Now". My book title, "Deport Now, Deport All!". The illegals swarming all over our once beautiful Texas need to be gone lest we become like California.

What about being humane to the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs in the worst economy we have seen in decades?

These jobless Americans will do almost any job these illegals are doing now to survive this tough economy.

Why is Newt protecting the jobs of the these illegals, at the expense of jobless Americans?

Where’s the compassion for legal Americans?

Get me a link. I’ve never heard such a thing. He came out in favor of Arizona’s immigration law tonight.

You do understand that any candidate for President who took this position would never be elected. Ever. It’s a total non-starter.

For the most part, all candidates except Bachmann have essentially the same position on illegal immigration, and Bachmann is walking dead.

1. No deportation of most illegals
2. Some legal documentation to get illegals on the record.
3. Border security.
4. Non-return paths to citizenship.

That’s as good as it going to get.
