Newt "AMNESTY" Gingrich....Lest we forget!
Newt bashes conservatives every chance he gets and this week undermining Rep. Paul Ryan and his proposals to harness our national debt was the target. Newt will play conservative when it suits him, problem is it doesn't suit him often. Gingrich openly pushed the Bush/Kennedy/McCain AMNESTY......in a letter he wrote to the WSJ
Let me remind you of a few FACTS.In his much touted 'Contract with America'....NOT one word about immigration. In fact only recently has Newt even talked about immigration enforcement. In the letter below, he joins other open border lobbyists proclaiming Bush's amnesty is the 'only way to go'.
The Wall Street Journal February 6, 2004 - Welcome to America
[snip]Fifteen authors offer this "Conservative Statement of Principles on Immigration"
Co-authored by Stuart Anderson, Jeff Bell, Linda Chavez, Larry Cirignano, Cesar V. Conda, Francis Fukuyama, Richard Gilder , Newt Gingrich, Ed Goeas, Tamar Jacoby, Jack Kemp, Steve Moore, Grover Norquist, Richard W. Rahn and Malcolm Wallop.
These are the people who would populate a 'Gingrich' administration!
Newt's voting record on immigration....pretty bad! Per Numbers USA and others: " Leans toward higher immigration, population growth, foreign labor. I can find nothing, in all the years that Gingrich was in office where he ever introduced or worked for legislation that would control our borders."
And these are the people Newt would reward with AMNESTY and Citzenship!
