Posted on 12/02/2010 1:05:36 PM PST by WilliamHouston
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. . .

Just charge them for all the back taxes they owe, (like anyone of US would have to pay if WE cheated) and they will LEAVE ON THEIR OWN!!!! Period!
They walked here, let them walk home.
Until then this just nothing talk.
Do you hear that Newt? First they have to prove they can control the border.
Until then, STFU.
Enforce our labor laws, and they’ll self deport.
Take the damned political incentive out of it. Make it the law that a person has to be a US citizen for 18 years before ever voting in an American election.
Let’s just declare the whole world to be Americans and put them all on welfare too.
What a joke—If the almighty Fed Goverment can draft millions of men into military service then why can’t millions be deported ? There is NO excuse for such a cowardly disloyal statement Mr. Speaker History Professor!
Deport? They’d leave on their own if it were not in their best interests to stay.
And to keep on coming.
There is no probable GOP candidate for 2012 that would deport all the illegals. That’s simple fact.
Deport the RINOS.
Politico is unintentionally explaining how we got this screwed up. America is shouting for real conservatives to drive the party and the left is trotting out the old tired whores that gave them the power. This is very thin and tired.
Report Gingrich to the Bush Clan.
He’s taking away some RINO votes from the frontrunner Romney.
Why are they grabbing everything that is already accorded for Romney?
Gingrich is so selfish. He already has the primary votes of the “climate change believing” RINOs.
Now, Gingrich also wants to steal the Amnesty-loving GOP voters?
How greedy and selfish can Gingrich get?
It can’t be. Romney must stand up to Gingrich and claim what is rightfully his in the first place. After all, Romney’s the next in line after McCain.
I agree with you but we will newver stop the free giveaways the liberal jusges will see to that.
Which is why they’ll need to be driven out by other means. Operation wetback deported far fewer than those who left on their own.
20 year prison term for employers who hire them will solve 90% of the problem.
Notice the same corporations get raided time and time again??
The heart of the matter is a "path" toward citizenship.
I believe everyone is in agreement with this though some lefties want them simply deemed "citizens".
We can’t? Too expensive? Instead, we’ll just go under? What happened to Newt, all that nookie stunt his ability to think? He used to be a pretty smart guy.
Exactly. That is the best place to start.
