I was shocked to see Newt Gingrich boast of his anti-enforcement agenda on immigration in the recent debates. More shocked to see that he is still passing himself off as a “conservative” and getting support and endorsements from other so-called conservative politicians.
My wife is an immigrant. Which means she came to the USA legally. The insult to real immigrants from Gingrich when he says that if someone can come illegally and avoid deportation for any number of years and be rewarded, will not be forgotten. Someone needs to tell me how he is different than Obama or Bush on illegal immigration. His “guest worker” amnesty plan is the same drivel that was thrown at us in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
I don’t see myself voting for someone for president that runs on the amnesty-again platform. Or someone who would probably say we need amnesty yet again in a few years.
If Gingrich is willing to admit now that he would be selective in enforcing immigration laws, no one should be surprised if his immense ego and ties to the open borders globalists would drive him to simply legalize all illegals with the stroke of a White House pen.
Newt Gingrich is not a conservative. He is the ultimate Washington insider who has repeatedly taken very liberal positions. The fact that he has supported an individual health care mandate like in ObamaCare should set off alarm bells all over the nation. What will he do next? He already sided with Nancy Pelosi on global warming.
I have heard the perfect definition of this man: Newt Gingrich is the GOP’s Bill Clinton.
Obama and Gingrich have essentially the same message on illegal immigrants while Romney, Bachmann and others have the courage to promise never to legalize them and to enforce the law. I want to hear loud and clear statements from all Georgia elected officials on their position on legalization and on Gingrich. That will be handy next November when I vote.
It is not inhumane to uphold the sacred rule of law. Granting a path to legal status for millions of immigrants will reward law-breaking and serve as another incentive for countless more to come here. Count me as a real conservative who says NO to Newt!
