Newt is not pro amenesty. He is not offerring citizenship for illegals. He has the #1 priority of securing the border before anything else. He wants to accellerate the deportation of hardened criminals and make legal immigration easier. I suppose we could rely on illegals to self deport as Romney suggests. I’d sure like self ticketing and self tax audits too for that matter. :-)

But minor criminals can stay.

Without jobs, people leave. Notice how the criminal invaders leave states that enforce laws no not letting them work or drive.
You need to learn the meaning of the word amnesty, which has nothing to do with citizenship:
“Amnesty (from the Greek amnestia, oblivion) is a legislative or executive act by which a state restores those who may have been guilty of an offense to the positions of innocent people, without changing the laws defining the offense. It includes more than pardon, in as much as it obliterates all legal remembrance of the offense.”
As soon as a liberal judge decides that having a policy where former illegal immigrants is unconstitutional (as he/she surely will) a border fence won't matter. Via chain immigration, the influx of immigrants will be unbelievable.
His "ideas" are utterly preposterous. Allow millions to stay with millions more for a new "temporary work" program. Meanwhile all of their children are anchor babies. He does not even give lip service to "attrition by enforcement" via employee checks and employer sanctions. His "citizen review boards" to decide which illegals can stay? We already have those - they are called sanctuary cities, a violate Federal law. Newt is doomed if those who support him continue to believe his pandering nonsense that pleases open-borders RINOs like Chavez and Aliniskyites like Somos Republicans. His supporters need to tell him to cut it out and embrace the rule of law. Someone let Newt know that the 1986 amnesty was DISASTER for America, not something to gloat about, as he did on Univision.
