Newt Gingrich’s Immigration Policy Aggravates Republican Base

Sheldon Alberts, National Post, November 23, 2011

No one would normally mistake Newt Gingrich’s brand of Republican politics with the “compassionate conservatism” once famously espoused by George W. Bush.

In recent days, the GOP presidential candidate has urged Occupy protesters to “go get a job right after you take a bath.” He has also recommended firing unionized school janitors and hiring poor students to work in their place.

But his call during a Republican debate this week for a more “humane” U.S. policy toward illegal immigrants revealed a different side to the former House Speaker–one that may ultimately damage his chances of becoming the party’s 2012 nominee.

Gingrich, now atop several Republican polls, endorsed a version of amnesty that would grant long-term undocumented aliens a ‘red card’ visa allowing them to gain legal status without earning U.S. citizenship.

He also backed elements of the so-called Dream Act, which would award citizenship to illegal immigrants who serve honourably in the U.S. armed forces.

“If you’ve been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’ve been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church, I don’t think we’re going to separate you from your family, uproot you forcefully and kick you out,” Gingrich said during a Tuesday night Republican debate in Washington.

“I don’t see how the party that says it’s the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century.”

The moderate position runs counter to prevailing views among many conservative Republicans, who have largely cheered efforts by immigration hardliners in states like Alabama and Arizona to crack down on illegal workers.

Gingrich’s remarks drew sharp denunciations from campaign rivals Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, and Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann’s campaign issued a statement saying Gingrich’s position “effectively equates to amnesty for foreigners residing in the United States unlawfully.”

This is dangerous political territory for Gingrich, who spent months campaigning in virtual anonymity before surging–on the strength of sharp debate performances–into the top tier of the Republican race.

Dating to Bush’s presidency, Republicans have consistently blocked immigration reform legislation that even hints at providing a path to legal status or citizenship for people who have come to America illegally.

Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican nominee, nearly had his campaign collapse in early-voting states like Iowa and South Carolina for supporting a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

In 2010, Senate Republicans filibustered legislation that would have granted legal status to about 500,000 people who arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16 and had attended college or served in the military.

If anything, Republican sentiment on immigration policy has hardened since then.

The Republican legislature in Alabama last June passed a bill–considered the toughest in the nation–that bars illegal immigrants from attending college and requires public schools to investigate the status of students.

Defending a more moderate approach on immigration has already proven perilous for Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who found himself pilloried by right-wing commentators for supporting the provision of college tuition aid to students brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

“I don’t think you have a heart,” Perry told other GOP candidates who opposed the tuition assistance. His support in polls began to drop shortly after, as conservatives questioned his stance, and Perry was compelled to express regret for his remark.

Gingrich offered a somewhat more artful defence of his position, saying he was “prepared to take the heat for saying let’s be humane” toward the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.

Still, Gingrich left an opening for Romney, who has lately been jockeying for top spot in Republican polls with the former House Speaker.

“The idea of focusing a Republican debate on amnesty and who we’re going to give it to is a huge mistake,” Romney said.

Granting legal status to people who came to the U.S. unlawfully would be a “magnet” that is “going to only encourage more people to come here illegally.”

The immigration reform plan favoured by Gingrich is similar in spirit to one supported by President Barack Obama, and one that Bush backed during his second term in the White House.

With comprehensive immigration reform going nowhere in Congress, the Obama administration has recently moved to curtail deportation proceedings against non-criminal undocumented aliens.

Gingrich, for his part, said his position mirrored the view taken by President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s. Gingrich said that if “you have come here recently, you have no ties to this country, you ought to go home, period.”

But he favours providing skilled worker visas to every foreigner who earned a “graduate degree in math, science and engineering” from an American university.

Long-standing illegal immigrants, Gingrich said, would get a ‘red card’–a visa for non-citizens–if they left the U.S. and re-entered with the support of an employer.

    Amnesty by any other name is amnesty. This is just another form of the failed policies of the past. This guy lost my vote.

    I believe in a humane policy for dealing with illegal immigrants. These people should be humanely transported back to their country of origin as soon as possible. As for Newt Gingrich, he should be given a humane early retirement come primary season.

    Where is our own Enoch Powell? Is there anyone out there with genuine political courage?

    So long Newt.

    People should point out to Gingrich that if he actually did something about illegal immigration when he was speaker of the House from 1995-1999 we wouldn’t have an illegal immigration crisis to begin with. It was his dereliction of duty that has caused this problem to grow to the point of where it is now. The perfect answer for his story about the hypothetical illegal who’s been here for 25 years is to say that if he actually dealt with this issue when he was Speaker (say back in 1995), this hypothetical immigrant would have only been present in the country for 9 years.

    They are all the same. The Republicans I see and hear are just another form of race traitors and continually say, “we CAN’T deport “12 million” illegals, so we have to give them a “pathway” to citizenship.

    Hey, Newt, why don’t you be “humane” to us White folk for once? DEPORT them ALL, illegals and their anchor babies!

    If you’ve been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’re reproducing too quickly.

    Frankly, I don’t care how long they’ve been here, or how many ninos they’ve managed to impregnate their wives and girlfriends with: if they came here illegally they are STILL illegal and they should be sent home. And if Newt isn’t willing to do that — and he clearly isn’t — then he must be kept far, far away from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Adios, Pedro, don’t come back now, y’hear?

    The traitorous foolishness of Gov. Perry on the Mex-to-the-Max issue seems to have scuppered his early momentum; let us hope this new “third rail of American politics” will also torpedo the regrettable, resistible return of Yesterday’s Conservative, Newt Gingrich.

    The immigration reform plan favoured by Gingrich is similar in spirit to one supported by President Barack Obama, and one that Bush backed during his second term in the White House.

    Newt’s in agreement with Obama and Dubya on this one? That alone should permanently knock him off the list of potential presidents.

    This guy wants the white vote, but he does not want to advocate for whites. He favours foreign invaders over the native population. He will not even mention affirmative action and the hostile way the US government treats its whites. No, Newt can only talk about oil and taxes. He is playing to his backers, the big corporations. The monied interests. The common white in the streets he holds in contempt. Reference his OWS comments.

    Now you know why Gingrich rose to the top of the pack in recent Republican polls. The powers that be always hype the pro-illegal immigrant candidates, give them plenty of positive coverage, and make sure they rise in the polls. That’s why Juan McAmnesty came out of nowhere to win the Republican nomination in 2008.

    Any candidate for President that will not perform the most important duty of that office, namely to protect the lives and property of Americans, will not get my vote. No candidate thus far is dealing with the regular incursions into U.S. territory by rogue units of the Mexican army in the pay of drug and human smugglers. The citizens who live near the border must tolerate continuous violations of their property – vandalism, theft, trespassing and have legitimate cause to fear for their lives. The next President must bring home thousands of troops stationed all over the world to do what they are actually supposed to be doing, protecting U.S. sovereignty. PUT THE MILITARY ON THE BORDER NOW!!!!

    Stupid idea from a very bright man, rule of law should prevail regardless, at the rate were going with so called conservatives taking these highly liberal stances when the voters are begging for a strong conservative makes me wanna keep an eye on Santorum, he seems to be the only true/real conservative in the race. Would not be surprised to see him have a Newt type bounce if he can string together a couple of good debates.

  • Question Diversity

    I agree with Lawrence Auster’s observation that Newt Gingrich is a whack job. When Auster said that, I don’t think he meant it in its usual pejorative usage, but it also wasn’t a compliment. Gingrich has a keen way to nuance words and dog whistle. Fortunately for us, he also has a long record to pick apart. We all know he’s as phony as a three dollar bill.

    As far as his quasi-amnesty plan, Sailer nailed it when he said that it’s meant to appeal to plutocratic Republican types, who want cheap labor but don’t want their cheap labor to be able to vote Democrat.

    Newt has this “25 year” cutoff line. First off, what is so much “worse” about an illegal alien here 24 years 364 days compared to one here 25 years 1 day? Why is 25 years the cutoff line in Newt’s ideal world? How are these illegals expected to prove that they’ve been here 25 years? I think Newt’s plan is a deliberate trojan horse for a full amnesty — Here’s why: Let’s say Newt wins, and gets exactly what he wants. We get these “Selective Service” boards everywhere to determine who gets to stay and who must leave. The minute they make their decision on who gets to stay on the Good Dinghy USA and who gets thrown into the water, the ACLU and SPLC will run right to court and scream “equal protection” and “fourteenth amendment.” Some judge will surely rule in their favor, and the media hysteria and row will “force” President Gingrich to say “oops, darn, wink wink, we have to have full and complete amnesty for everyone to be fair. Every illegal alien will get one of my red cards. Drive them wages down even further! But at least they won’t get to vote Democrat! Even though their kids and grandkids, birthright citizens, will.”

    Google this name: Sheldon Adelson. He’s Gingrich’s sugar daddy. A big player in the Las Vegas gaming industry. You don’t think he has a direct incentive to drive down wages as far as possible, do you? He was probably part of the cabal of gaming industry owners and unions which saved Harry Reid’s bacon last year; they weren’t going to let their precious Senate Majority Leader go down without a fight, and it would not have mattered who his Republican opponent was, for those of you who want to hate on Sharron Angle for some specific reason. Ironically, Newt happily campaigned with and for Sharron Angle.

    I notice that there is a story here on AmRen “This guy for President?” about the slimy Rick Perry. Yet even a cursory glance at NumbersUSA will show that Ron Paul’s record is just as bad. No candidate is perfect, but too many conservatives are willing to give him a free pass. Where is the AmRen story about Ron Paul? The ignorance about his record needs to be broken.

  • Mr.White

    What is so “inhumane” about returning illegal invaders to their rightful country of citizenship, which in the substantial majority of cases, happens to be mexico?

    I have yet to hear a lucid answer to that question, an answer which would justify allowing millions of those who entered this country in violation of our immigration laws the right to stay.

    Being able to evade detection for decades, while managing to pumping out several generations of anchor babies, should not earn one bonuses points in the amnesty lottery! In fact, they should be the first to go for goodness sakes!

    I want to know when simply enforcing our immigration laws became so offensive! Maybe Newt can answer that question for all Americans!

    He also supports affirmative action. Gingrich and J.C. Watts did all they could to defeat California’s proposition to end AA. Also supports the “ownership society”, which means forcing local banks to lower standards for blacks and hispanics to give them mortgages to buy homes they have no business buying. Also supports school vouchers and school choice. Would love for him to be asked how he would like a few hundred inner-city Atlanta “students” to arrive at his grandchildren’s school waving around their vouchers. I’ve always despised him and other fraud CONservatives like Jack Kemp, Bill Bennett, Dick Armey. Really despise them!

    “I believe in a humane policy for dealing with illegal immigrants. These people should be humanely transported back to their country of origin as soon as possible. “…

    That is a fine & noble-sounding sentiment, but we are dealing with an invasion. I don’t believe that we should be humane in any way with people (of whatever age, sex, condition) who come here to steal bread and sustenance out of the mouths of our own children, elders, people in general.

    We don’t need to be violent with them, but we need to be very firm in our desire to stop the invasion and to discourage any further attempts to invade in the future. First, imprisonment. We keep them in a very well guarded, fenced in camp in the desert until we get around to processing them. Processing would include a rigorous identification and questioning, fingerprinting, photographing, etc. of each law violating illegal entrant. While they wait in the desert, we impose tough, harsh discipline, separate families, and disallow any communication with anyone. No priests, no reverends, some Red Cross to help take care of the sick. First Offense – a bus pass on a special guarded bus to get them to the border. THey get dropped off at a checkpoint on the U.S. side with a dime to call their relatives to get them and take them home.

    Second Offense – 6 months breaking rocks on Attu or Kiska in the Aleutian Island chain. Finale – a long train ride to the border to get them back home.A dime for the phone call.

    Third Offense – an indefinite stay at very hard labor. Much heartache. Lots of sickness. It would take luck and an iron constittion to survive. Perhaps the ones who make it a third time would be lucky. Those who got stopped might have been stopped the hard and final way. No wall. No fences. A clearly marked border with lots of signs in Spanish saying :”go home”. Machine guns to back it up.

    Prosecute employers who lure them here. Make them suffer the same regimen of the illegal entrants. Yes, Mexico would protest much, but we’d save our nation and our culture. It will come to this because no one in charge listens to reason. they are all too busy tuning up their violins.

    Late breaking news: The whack job says he’s going to crack down on sanctuary cities:

    http://goo.gl/NqOyG

    Fine. But why bother with this, or the border fence, if his immigration plan is what I think it is, (see my above comment), a pre-planned trojan horse for a blanket amnesty? Why have border control at all or bother cracking down on sanctuary cities if you’re just going to let everyone come on in? Cut off Federal funds to sanctuary cities? Of course, if the whack job’s immigration plan eventually makes all illegals citizens, then there will be no need for any sanctuary city to remain a sanctuary city, because all the illegal aliens will be legal. It’s like saying that we’re going to execute all murderers then repeal laws against murder. (Not the perfect analogy, I know. Just making a point.)

    Cutting off Federal funds is a half-baked solution to sanctuary cities, BTW. The right answer is to charge the politicians that vote for them and the law enforcement authorities that enforce them with the criminal offense of obstruction of justice on the Federal level.

    Separate them from their family? Absolutely not! Send the family back with ’em!

    The idea of those who scoff at our borders and then try to skirt our laws by having anchor babies being rewarded with citizenship is absurd. That’s like the guy who kills his parents and then insists that he shouldn’t be punished because he’s an orphan!

    So let me get this straight, Mr. Speaker…the longer illegals have ignored our laws, the more you’ll reward them? Good thinking. Now, do you know what I’m thankful for this season? I’m so very thankful that you weren’t in charge on Dec. 7, 1941. Guess we would have heard, “Well the enemy is here and there’s nothing we can do about it, so let’s just sit quietly while they bomb us.” We have become a “can’t do country.” I’m totally ashamed of all our politicans. That’s the worse name I can think to call them. They’ve thrown up their hands and surrendered to the present-day enemies – the invasion from south of the border. Why do we not produce Eisenhowers anymore? He would have stopped this immediately. Military on the border, no benefits at all, no jobs, a moratorium on all immigration for ten years and an end to the birthrights citizenhip fiasco!

    I read Gingrich’s elaboration in full on what his idea is regarding the immigration issue, and there’s no comparison to Bush’s desire for amnesty. Gingrich made it clear he does NOT favor amnesty.

    However, I think it’s a moot point, because the Republicans should at least hold on to the House, which means amnesty is going nowhere now nor will it succeed after 2012 no matter if Obama is re-elected.

    There’s nobody in the Republican line-up who doesn’t have one issue or another that somebody or some segment of the right doesn’t like.

    Gingrich isn’t everything I like in a candidate, but I think he would clean up the anti-white DOJ, as well as every other department, better than anyone else. Too, it has to be noted that all this criticism on the immigration issue is having the effect of pushing him further to the right.

    Gingrich has the in-your-face attitude when it is necessary and people like that. Bill O’Reilly zoomed to the top with a similar approach to issues. Gingrich is intelligent and has some innovative ideas to alleviate this economic stress that is threatening to go into a severe depression.

    I’m leery of Romney, because I think he just doesn’t have the toughness or backbone to really tell it like it is and act accordingly.

    In spite of all that, however, I have some serious misgivings that anything or anybody will stop this economy from tanking in the last analysis. I hope I’m wrong and I hope Gingrich at least gets a chance to try.

    If Obama is re-elected….which is a very real possibility…..the country will surely deteriorate into civil chaos.

    Once again we see that almost all republicans are no different than the democrats.

    The biggest problem we face in our brainwashed society on “this issue” is how it relates to “other issues”. More illegal immigration means more affirmative action yet people like Newt will claim they believe in capitalism and the principles of American exceptional-ism. It’s all hogwash. Some one needs to remind NEWT that more of this “Immigration” means more decrimination against white people, the ones who’s vote he is asking for.

    BOTH PARTYIES WANT A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT and don’t care about your children and how government polices identify them as white and exclude them from various government programs and are designed to promote the interests other children ahead of yours. They are trying to make us all equal whether we are or not. They want to make us interchangeable labor units that are simply bought and sold.

    It’s no coincidence that we are becoming a more communistic nation, as other communist nations are becoming more capitalistic. They need the nations to become nearly the same so that they can operate under one world government.

    Look, we must face the reality that we will not make any headway on immigration until we end the Federal reserve Bank and there NWO. I’m going off memory but I think we have reached a point where they have created more money in the past five years behind closed doors, then nation has created dept in the past 200 years. And that’s just considering what End the FED people have been able to find out about.

    If we want to end illegal immigration, we will need to end the federal reserve bank and the NWO agenda.

    This revelation should not come as any big surprise to anyone in the White Nationalist / AR / White racial realist community who’s done even a mediocre job of keeping an eye on Newt Gingrich since this despicable, degenerate, treasonous rat first appeared on the national scene.

    Here’s the rule: What is taking place here in America and around the world in literally every other historical White European founded nation – is a battle between ‘globalists and internationalists’ and ‘nationalists’. These globalists, by their very nature, despise the idea of sovereign nations and this means that they are the mortal enemies of the nations which spawned them. Nationalists believe in the sovereignty of the nations of their birth, feel passionate attachments, devotion, and a sense of committed loyalty to their race and to their people’s history and wish to ensure that their people and their nations have a prosperous future – which includes preserving their dominance in their own native homelands, and which also ensures that they can achieve self-determination, free from the possibility of being subjugated to rule by aliens who are totally unlike themselves.

    Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, the entire criminal Bush and McCain families and nearly ALL of the mainstream GOP and Democrat political figures today – are hard core globalists and internationalists, and they are increasingly being exposed as such – hence, they are running into strong and passionate resistance from Americans, especially White European Americans – who are not the least bit interested in erasing our borders and allowing the entire third world to flood into America, burying White Europeans under an avalanche of non-whites who do not share their language, their history, their customs, their traditions, their values, or who do not share the Founders vision of a strictly limited, tightly controlled and shackled Federal Government and a strong emphasis upon individual liberty and self-reliance.

    Its my guess that Gingrich knew full well that his long and well documented history of outrageous treason against his own nation, i.e., NAFTA, pushing globalism, outsourcing of our jobs and industries, his relentless contempt for the sovereignty of his own nation – all of these things could not be kept hidden from public view long enough for this rat to snooker the not-so-bright voting public into putting him in the White House in 2012. So, Newt figures to confess his crimes – but try to smear plenty of liberal, Utopian sugar on them and try to claim he is a ‘compassionate’ guy and then hope he can tap into that suicidal ‘White Soccer Mom’ sentimentality that gave us two terms of the despicable Bill Clinton, his old nemesis.

    Face the truth about Newt Gingrich. This rat deserves to be arrested, charged with High Treason, tried before a jury consisting exclusively of citizens who have lost their careers due to his support of NAFTA and of citizens who’ve had loved ones who were raped or murdered by illegal aliens who Newt helped allow to flood into this nation, swiftly convicted and then issued a sentence of capital punishment.

    Remember: Learn to identify politicians who are globalists and internationalists. Every one of these rats are the mortal enemies of every White European American and they seek to genocide our race and destroy White Western Civilization.

  • white is right, black is whack

    GOP once again not getting it when it comes to race and immigration. The majority of people who do and would support them are whites, especially working class whites. The majority of people who hate them and will never vote for them are blacks and hispanics, because they are committing most of the crimes that whites are trying to stop and they want big government because they view it as taking away power and money and rights from whitey to give to them.

  • John Engelman

    The Republican Party exists in order to advance the economic interests of the richest ten percent of the country. A high rate of immigration advances those interests.

    More immigrants mean more people. This means more consumers and more job applicants. By the law of supply and demand this means higher prices, lower wages, and higher profits.

    If you get your income from interest, rents, and dividends, like the people the Republican Party cares about, you benefit from a high rate of immigration. If you work for a living, you pay the price.

    This is an issue that separates the elites of both parties from the rank and file. Limousine liberals care about poor immigrants. Rich Republicans want to become richer Republicans.

    It cannot be said that Democratic politicians have realistic hopes of benefiting from this issue on election day by promoting lax immigration restrictions. By 43 to 18 percent Americans favor less immigration.

    http://goo.gl/gxYGp

    Because blacks and Hispanics frequently hate each other, a coalition of them in the Democratic party cannot be cohesive.

    I like Newt and admire his intelligence. But he’s another “conservative” who doesn’t seem to understand that the fundamental problem facing this country that will soon be unsolvable is the massive influx of nonwhites. Even if they fixed every fiscal problem, this brown tide will ultimately make this country into an unsavory place. Yet nearly every Republican loves to crow about how much he welcomes legal immigration. The only immigrants we should allow are people of extremely high intelligent who would benefit us scientifically or technologically. Newt rightly made remarks along these lines but where they all go wrong is their willingness to accept tens of thousands of poor third worlders for every one Korean or Indian PhD. Oh and I found it sadly funny that the twelve million illegal immigrants that we’ve been hearing about since the early 90s (it was twelve million then and hasn’t increased!) actually was reduced to eleven million in a recent GOP debate. The number is at least twenty five and possibly as high as forty million.

    I agree with Seek. We need to humanely get the illegals out of here.

    I became a race realist a couple years ago and since then I’ve tried to come up with ways to educate more white Americans about racial differences. A few months ago I read an excerpt from James Watson’s Avoid Boring People. Watson said in 2006 that he thinks that the truth about race and IQ will be revealed less than 15 years. If he’s right we could be only 5 years away from a racially aware white America.

    Michael Levin told AR in a 2009 interview that the truth will come out in less than 20 years.

    So maybe us race realists and White Nationalists are worrying for nothing. Probably between 2016 and 2029 white Americans will become aware of the genetic basis for IQ differences between the races and support for accommodating illegal immigrants will decline tremendously.

    I’m just going to sit back and wait. And when the news breaks I’ll tell my race denialist friends “I told you so”.

    “…his call during a Republican debate this week for a more “humane” U.S. policy toward illegal immigrants.”

    There’s nothing humane about White Genocide, and that’s what the flood of non-Whites into White countries is all about.

    As Question Diversity posted above, “…his quasi-amnesty plan…[is] meant to appeal to plutocratic Republican types, who want cheap labor but don’t want their cheap labor to be able to vote Democrat.”

    In other words, anti-Whites supporting White Genocide for their own political and financial gain.

    No subspecies is able to maintain itself when it’s mixed with another subspecies with which it can interbreed. Just look at the increasing number of mixed marriages and mixed children every year in the U.S., and the (lack of) future for the White race is evident.

    Now you know why Freddie Mac paid him more than a million. Because Newt’s neo-con brain mush about “ownership society” was the philosophical basis behind the subprime tragedy. If only blacks and Hispanics “owned” their residential domiciles, they would all behave. Why do you think Bush 43 fundamentally set off the subprime tragedy with the “no down payment” silliness? Again, it was the sine qua non of the subprime circus. Clinton, Carter, Schumer, Frank, et al have a lot for which to answer, but Bush’s no down payment demands was the crucial element.

  • Question Diversity

    Bromide alert: I had a running debate last week with a Newthead on Twitter. His contention was that an illegal alien here for 25 years can’t be prosecuted for immigration charges because of the statute of limitations. The problem with that is that an illegal alien is committing a Federal crime every day he or she is here, not just the time 25 or more years ago when he or she jumped the border. So you don’t start the statute of limitations clock when s/he jumped the border, (or his or her visa expired, the cause of a majority of illegal aliens), you start it when he or she stops violating Federal immigration law, the day s/he leaves.

    Is it humane when the illegals take jobs that hurt college students and kids needing summer jobs or part time jobs to save money for college? Is it humane when these illegals get more rights than even American citizens? Is it humane when we have to cater to them and adapt their cultures instead of them embracing our culture and learning our language? Is it humane that more illegals cause more crimes and are ruining every city, town and neighborhood they become a majority in?
