Gingrich Slammed on Immigration

Uh-oh, it’s time to talk immigration. Newt Gingrich takes a relatively leftist view on the subject of immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for decades, arguing that they shouldn't be forced out because it tears families apart and even suggesting a path to citizenship. Most conservatives, Romney included, frown at the idea. Bachmann considers this idea "amnesty." "The party that says it’s the party of the family is not going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families who have been here a quarter century," Gingrich said. Perry points to Mexico, saying that Hamas and Hizbullah are working in the nation. This is why, he says, border security is paramount—and why we need a “21st-century Monroe Doctrine.”
