Skip to comments."Newt Gingrich Facing GOP backlash Over 'Humane' Immigration Policy" (U.K. Guardian)
Posted on 11/23/2011 9:05:05 PM PST by AmericanInTokyo
Conservative activists believe Gingrich's views on illegal immigrants has opened up the field for another GOP candidate...
(Excerpt) Read more at guardian.co.uk ...
His proposal to allow most of the country's estimated 12 million illegal immigrants to remain in the US which he made during Tuesday night's nationally televised GOP debate in Washington runs counter to Republican orthodoxy, which is opposed to amnesty and in favour of expulsion. ....
Gettin' hot, folks.
Does Newt think we are stupid? His plan SUCKS, the ACLU would file suit and have them all declared US Citizens and democrat voters.
The "American media" may be divided but conservatives are not.
Somehow the concept of “Do justice. Love mercy. And walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8) does not line up especially well with the idea of putting 11 million Hispanics into cattle cars (Yes, plenty of Freepers advocate this) and shipping them back to Mexico.
Newt is right on this one.
Cain rises to the top and stays there much to the chagrin of MSM.
“His plan SUCKS.”
You’ve read it?
I don’t want an Open Borders Republican as the nominee of our Party and I don’t want him anywhere is near the White House.
What Gingrich said is a deal-breaker. I could hold my nose and really overlook a lot of other things but not this one. He has lost my vote.
What's your plan?
Take away the magnets (free education, welfare, healthcare), secure the border and they will self-deport. Stop with the sensationalism.
I hope he ends up in single digits. We cannot have an alien lover. We got rid of that nasty Perry. We can get rid of Nasty Newt.
I do not read that as license for people to break the law. We’re not enforcing our immigration laws. This is a thoroughly bad idea. We’ve already had several “rolling” amnesties, all extensions by the way, Gingrich supported as Speaker. Shane on me once, I understand. But he promises to get tough after another amnesty. Do it again shame on us! Yeah, really! Where have we heard that before?
Please surrender another homeland, not mine.
Yes indeed! Cain has survived one of the sleaziest and most heinous smears from the left.
Nothing wrong with saying Americans are humane people.
When America finally realize that we are not permitted by law to get rid of anchor babies, who are legitimate American citizens, then they’ll realize that we’re not getting rid of their parents, and by extension, their grandparents.
You might send the grandparents home, but they can come indefinitely on visitor visas.
the idea of putting 11 million Hispanics into cattle cars (Yes, plenty of Freepers advocate this) and shipping them back to Mexico.
Well I like it. However, what I would do is give them 30 days to get the heck out of the country and if they don’t they are put in jail for life. I bet we would get rid of a ton of them that way. If they are caught twice then they are judged in Texas and the death penalty is available. Coming into our country while we are at war is an act of treason. This is not the time to be caring about felons.
I’m done with Newt. I gave him a chance and I was ready to overlook his adultery and global warming scam, but he is doubling down with perryesque pro-illegal stance.
Go to hell Newt. I cannot vote scumbag like you.
I think Michele deserves second look.
Enforce the law. It is not complicated. Enforce existing immigration laws, including employer sanctions and they’ll stop coming.
If we really need more labor (in this economy??) don’t reward illegals with the first place in line.
Good point. Had not thought of that, right away.
When I was in the Marines we marched thirty miles in a day with packs and rifles. They can march 25 miles a day unencumbered.
