Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich: "We are not going to deport 11 million people"
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 another back stabbing elite scumbag who wants a seat for the Gingrich family at the new world order
One point of disagreement regarding Illegals “paying taxes”. If you're referring to sales taxes, then I agree. However, I don't believe they're paying income taxes as many of these people are working for cash.
You’re NEUTERED NEWT....FOAD.
They will self deport when workplaces/hospitals/welfare/etc. are required to validate ID’s and SSN’s.
While I would have a lot of problematic issues with your statement, generally speaking I agree with you.
How about we just deport you, Newt. Current law should be tried because it hasn’t been so far.
The US people do not want, nor do we need 11+ million foreign unlawful invaders.
How is that so hard to comprehend? The only thing I will give him credit for is at least being honest about his intent.
30,000 incarcerated in California salute you, Newt.
We’re not asking for them to be deported, numbnuts.
Penalize anyone who hires them, make anyone wanting government services provide proof of citizenship, and they’ll deport themselves.
It’s the same position as Palin. What say you??
I have a better idea! Deport all of us that are picking up the tab for all this crap! Deport us to Sanity Island where we can make a life for ourselves and live in peace.
They can have the hell hole they’re creating.
Ahhh. True, Newt. But Mexico did.
Close the Border first.
Deport until the unemployment rate drops.
I don’t think we’d have trouble with either of those. Then we can see where to go from there.
What a stupid assclown. Why does Fox keep bringing this RINO douchebag on the air?
Deport them as you catch them. Prosecute them as you determine they've stolen someone's I.D. or Socialist Security Number, etc.
For crying out loud. What's so difficult about this?
I don't know about that. They stay here because someone is paying them - from the meat packer, to the hotel to the restaurant - they easily find gainful employment. You cut off all social services and really slap horrifically punitive penalties on ANYONE who employs an illegal, they'd leave.
When you talk "deportation", the media does a pretty good job of painting the visual of millions of illegals packed into cattle cars, hearkening back to the Holocaust. That turns-off independents.
Republicans should turn their back on the corporate masters, and pass some laws that really screw these employers.
Newt is a POS and a serial adulterer. Deport Callista and Newt.
At the same time, secure the border to make very difficult for additional people to come, but find a way to make it possible for illegals to leave the country immediately.
Agreed. You can’t just hand them citizenship on a silver platter. A “path to citizenship” has to require learning the language as a start.
“zone between deportation and amnesty”
I don’t see the middle ground. He says they’re not going to deport, basically. So that seems to be amnesty. Am I wrong?
You can’t trust ANY “public figure” in politics. Republicans never stay serious Republicans in office.
