Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich: "We are not going to deport 11 million people"

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a bold goal for the next decade: Overhaul the country's immigration system so that every worker in the United States is legal.
"We are not going to deport 11 million people," Gingrich said Thursday as he kicked off his first forum on Latino issues. "There has to be some zone between deportation and amnesty."
A possible presidential candidate, Gingrich stressed that his target of establishing an entirely legal work force is "not a call for amnesty." Rather, he said, it's about applying common sense to the immigration debacle.
"Dos y dos son cuatro" (two plus two equals four), he said to chuckles. . .

Why not? It would create a lot of U.S. jobs!
The zone between deportation and amnesty is amnesty.
Newt... exit... stage left.
Newt Gingrich: “We are not going to deport 11 million people”
Good, then the other 30 million illegals are gonna go.
Screw you , you Newtered bitch.
Sounds like Newt is trying to whittle the numbers back down some.
Good bye, Newt!
Anyone paying attention should not be suprised by Newt’s comments.
Newt got ‘religion’, called social justice... and it is just fine to ‘steal’ from Americans.
I've voted for my last RINO. The country can go Marxist before I vote RINO again.
Go Sarah, go!
Make it impossible for shady employers to hire illegals, get rid of birthright citizenship for the children of illegals, and deny them benefits.
OK, keep one benefit for them - a free bus ticket to the border.
But the point is, they will self-deport if the first three are done.
BTW, Newt, you just kissed your slim chances of winning the GOP nomination in 2012 goodbye. The GOP is not interested in someone who wants to out-McCain McCain.
If there are no freebies, or anchor babies, they will go home.
You don’t have to deport ANYBODY!!!! Just cut off the government teat and start fining the hell out of anyone caught knowingly hiring an illegal. They will find their own way home or to Canada.
Same old crap from the same old phony. Enforce the laws and see how many self-deport, then come back and tell me how many you can't deport. Oh yeah, you also might want to erect the border fence/wall.
I don’t know whether it’s possible to deport 11 million people or not. But is it just possible, pretty please with sugar on top, that we could deport Newt?
He did something good once. But as Cromwell said of the Long Parliament, he has since hung around long enough to have more than made up for it.
....Newt is right and so is everyone else...it's impossible to deport 11 million people....many of whom have been living here for years...and working....and paying taxes....And what's with the "Stick with Obama"...instead of a Newt or a McCain...that's how we got Obama in the first place...
What we’ll do, Newt, is induce large-scale self-deportation through employment/hiring enforcement, select deportations and a lack of amnesties for at least the next thirty years.
