Adios, Newt: There's nothing "humanitarian" about Gingrich amnesty proposal

For Newt Gingrich, it seems that amnesty is an every-25 year “humanitarian” project.

Many thanks to the former House Speaker for explaining his core values and oh-so-morally-superior “compassion” on America’s illegal immigration crisis, another amnesty and the rule of law in the GOP presidential primary debate this week.

This long-time American was ever so close to making the blunder of supporting him for president.

With a blend of talking points taken from the anti-enforcement Chamber of Commerce, Barack Obama, the National Council of La Raza, the open borders Big Religion Inc. and Jerry Gonzalez of GALEO, the former speaker ended any confusion about his aversion to enforcement of the laws on immigration he voted for as a congressman.

“I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who have been here a quarter century, who have children and grandchildren, who are members of the community, who may have done something 25 years ago, separate them from their families and expel them. I’m prepared to take the heat for saying, let’s be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality so that they are not separated from their families” said candidate Gingrich.

Heads up for Newt from recent Rasmussen poll headlines:

“59% say U.S. government encourages illegal immigration

63% favor immigration checks on all routine traffic stops

Most voters oppose public schooling, tuition breaks, driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

64% say U.S. society fair and decent”

Gingrich also degraded and insulted the entire concept of legal immigration and U.S. citizenship by referring to not-yet-captured illegal aliens as “law-abiding citizens.”

He added, “I do believe if you’ve been here recently and have no ties to the U.S., we should deport you.” So it is a matter of time? Golly, thanks Newt. Apparently there is a statute of limitations on immigration violations for the would-be president of the republic.

It’s ironic that Gingrich would pick a figure of “a quarter century” as a time period for which an illegal can avoid deportation and then gain legal status in the USA.

Twenty-five years ago, then Congressman Newt Gingrich voted for the Simpson-Mazzoli legislation that legalized illegal aliens and offered the promise of future employer sanctions and secure American borders.

It was to have ended illegal immigration in the U.S forever.

The 1986 “one-time” amnesty legislation eventually made about three million illegal alien fugitives legal. The borders were not secured. Despite tireless work on the part of the Obama administration and the media to convince America otherwise, they still aren’t secure. Employers continue to hire and employ the less costly black-market labor who made it past Border Patrol Agents.

Despite the fraud involved in the same scheme in 1986, for Gingrich, it seems that amnesty is an every-25-year “humanitarian” project.

Gingrich also said with a straight face at the debate he wanted to create “a guest worker program” to help solve illegal immigration.

This dishonest concept and talking point taken straight from George W. Bush, John McCain and Ted Kennedy is offered up knowing that most Americans are unaware that we already have multiple guest worker programs in place. Including for agriculture. And that we already take in more than a million guest workers each year. Along with another million or so legal immigrants annually. While unemployment runs around 10 percent. And wages are stagnant. And many local governments all over the nation are going broke.

Gingrich knows no debate moderator is ever going to ask him or any other candidate for a reasonable explanation of this lunacy.

As I type, I can hear the usual voices on talk radio who have made up their minds to back Gingrich — no matter what — yelp that we can’t “round up and deport millions of illegal aliens” … yada yada.

Sure we could. Obama is claiming to have deported about 400,000 illegals last year and the year before. That claim is deceptive at best, but certainly those numbers are easily reached. Deporting say, half-a-million illegals every year until they are gone is quite possible and most American would support the endeavor. This one included.

But the real answer is attrition through enforcement — making the illegals leave on their own because of a lack of jobs, benefits and services and fear of strict, enthusiastic enforcement of the federal immigration laws for which the 1986 Congressman Newt Gingrich voted.

He has made it crystal clear that they now mean very little to him.

Adios, Newt — we know you too well.

Word is that King produced more than 10,000 emails, faxes and phone calls, each week, to legislators during the HB 87 process. I know that a Cobb woman, Inger Eberhart is listed as a board member with several people and that King gets hundreds of people to show up at rallies in Georgia and in Washington. No small feat tpo get conservatives off the couch. Maybe AMERICAN BUSINESSMAN should stop employing illegals and check out the Dustin Inman Society Website.

I couldn't have said it better or agree more,

D.A.! There's no excuse for even considering rewarding illegal alien law breakers with ANY form of legal residency in our country. All that has ever done is send a clear message to others that if they manage to sneak into our country, start up a family/pop out some anchor babies and manage to lay low for a few years eventually the stupid Americans will reward them too.

People who don't respect our laws and borders don't respect our country and people. They never will. Why would/should we want those people living with us???? We don't... and we'd better be sending a loud and clear message to our politicians that we won't tolerate it.

I would like to know how many people are members of the Dustin Inman Society. I have only heard of one person, D.A. King Founder and President. Are there really other members in this society, or is the MDJ giving too much of a voice to one individual who thinks there is only one view to the immigration problem. Does Mr. King think his view is the only solution to a very complex problem. He is not thinking of how his solution will hurt a lot of American businessmen.

If Newt has compassion to spare for Georgia taxpayers,now would be a good time to express it. Becarse now we know it cost us $2.4 billon last year in support of illegal-status workers and their dependants, according to a FAIR organization study. That’s about 6 percent of all the dollars spent by Georgia’s state and local governments—largely from superfluous taxes paid in support of a superfluous work force.

What doesn't Gingrich get about enforcing the laws we now have on the books?? Another amnesty will only encourage more people to come here illegally to get the next one. I'm glad this guy revealed himself now as I will not support him.

How will Gingrich, or anyone else, know whether they have been here for 25 years, or 25 days? They have multiple identities and falsify whatever they have to in order to obtain benefits to which they are not entitled.

Jail treasonous employers and watch them self-deport.

Well said D.A. There is no way, no how that I am going to vote for the amnesty-loving Newt Gingrich now.

How come Gingrich and the other pro-amnesty zealots never care about what is "humane" for American taxpayers and jobless citizens who need the 7 million jobs that illegal aliens have stolen?

I don't know about other people but I'm fed up with politicians who have so much compassion and sympathy for illegal aliens while ignoring the decades that American citizens have had to support these people and suffer at the crimes millions of them have committed. I want a president who KNOWS his or her job is to protect American citizens, our borders and nation. That is the first and foremost obligation of the Federal government according to our Constitution. I want a president who refuses to break our laws and will uphold our Constitution first before anything else. I will not vote for Newt or any other candidate who will not deport all the illegal aliens in our country.

Let's not forget another straight-faced deceiver--Karl Rove--who also believes we need a guest worker program; knowing, as does Newt, that most Americans are essentially clueless about the issue.

We already do have an agricultural "guest worker" program available: the numerically uncapped, NON IMMIGRANT, temporary agricultural worker H2A Visa.

It's time to publicly ask politicians and farmers why they are so opposed to utilizing that program.

Gingrich is the epitome of everything that is destroying this country, our culture, and our sovereignty; i.e., the corrupted career politician.

One only has to research his background in order to quickly realize this pedantic is directly responsible for more harm than good. As it is with 99% of these egomaniacs their heart swells more with pride when they hear "Hail to Chief" than "God Bless America." Of all the candidates, Gingrich is the worst.

If you round 'em up, my friends and I will drive the buses!!! I'm so sick of this whole issue. My once-nice middle-class neighborhood is being overrun by illegal Hispanics, who live 8-12 per single-dwellng house with one septic tank designed for a small family--do the math! There's a simple solution: secure the borders, round 'em, get 'm gone!

I would never have voted for him anyway - he is NOT a conservative. This is just more inside the beltway amnesty foolery. He isn't nearly as smart as he thinks he is. He didn't fool me! I agree: Adios Newt!

America will continue to reward selected bad behavior, while punishing Americans for any infraction of the law.

Excellant article, D.A.

As one of many U.S.B.P. agents involved in the last amnesty, IRCA 1986, we saw massive fraud that even aggravated politicians that created the monster. Gingrich is no different than any other pandering politician, Republican or Democrat. The Immigration Laws established by Congress and the enforcement of those laws mean nothing to people who prefer to sell their souls and country for votes.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that feels that way. These phoney politicians hold back and then try to entice more "La Raza" votes with this "Bush" type attitude towards illegal foreign nationals. I won't vote for anyone that doesn't have a strong arm enforcement policy in mind for their term in office. I don't care what they're running for!

This is not Gingrich's first journey into Amnesty Land, he has made similar public comments before. The same goes for Romney, who in 2007 said that he thought illegals should be required to register with the government (yeah right) and then said "When we learn how many people there are and what their individual circumstances are, then we can decide how to proceed with each individual." The we have Rick "Dream Act" Perry, and Ron "fences can keep Americans in" Paul. And finally, when Herman Cain was under duress for his "electric fence" remark, he hinted and jib jabbed around the amnesty card. None of these candidates can pass the immigration enforcement litmus test and settling for a "close enough" means four more years of treason-as-usual.
