It's the only sensible thing he's ever said. We should reward him: maybe then he'll say some more sensible things! Unlikely, but we can HOPE.

I don't care what country someone from IF they legally apply for and are granted a permit to immigrate here.

But if you sneak across our borders you have broken our Federal law and should be sent back where you came from.

That goes for those who apply for a Student Visa and stay past the time allowed, that is one way they get in here legally and get lost, move around etc.

Legally here no problem, welcome to the USA.

Illegally here get your rear end and family out of the USA.

And Congress MUST change the darn Constitution to make anchor babies illegal, not American Citizens.

I know many won't agree with me, that is fine but keep the replies nice and clean.

duhh!!!'deep roots?' like how? if Gringish wants to check roots he should realize all the SALT in the ocean destroys roots and only the good brown earth, fresh water with lots of fertilizer could provide democratic, godly, human civilization. Some 'roots' came from different trees but 'different' is different not worse nor better. Did he take Civilization Classes or just needs to have learned and practice to simply 'love your neighbor?

I respect Newt, but his "catering" to illegals is just too far for me. I would still probably support him in general.

Oppose -- many, many immigrants have been in American for many years, they have and had ample of time to become Citizens. they want all the free handouts, but do not want to pay taxes. Many do not apprecoate the American Flag, and will not salute the Flag.

Let them come here legally, to get legal status. No way, let Newtie find other little girls to sleep with.

So is speeding! So is downloading copyrighted material without paying for it! So was a black man drinking from a Whites Only drinking fountain.

The fact that something is not legal does not make it wrong, any more than the fact that something is legal makes it right. You've taken refuge behind a meaningless argument. The law is an ass and so is anyone who relies on it as their justification for immoral and unjust behavior.

So does that make you an ass for your way of seeing illegals?

If our government had been enforcing the laws on illegals for years we would not have this problem IF and only IF one part of our Constitution was changed.

And I have said it so many times I am tired of it, change the wording about babies being born here of mothers who are not here legally to make that baby a non-citizen of the USA but a citizen of the country the mother is.

What is happening now is many wealthy Chinese are coming here the last few weeks before their baby is due and having the baby born here legally as they have legal passports from China and we have allowed them in.

That also needs to stop, student visa's, legally visiting tourist from other countries babies must not be automatically made USA citizens.

But we all know our elected jerks don't have what it takes to ever consider changing that law.

It will only get worst till that happens and the Feds start enforcing our borders.

Yeah, it wasn't easy being born here to American parents! You put so much effort into not being conceived south of a line on a map, and all these immigrants make that sacrifice practically meaningless.

it's just not fair that less virtuous sperm and eggs match up and then come up here later in life. Don't they know their place? Whatever happened to decorum in accidental incidence of birth?

SOME people! Next thing you know black people will want equal rights! Then women will want to vote, be paid equally for equal work, and even be allowed into establishments that serve alcohol.

OHMIGOD you're totally right! In no time at all we'll be suffocating, buried under babies with slanty eyes! I've been worried about drowning in brown people and all along it was the orientals I should have been worried about!

I sure am glad my white parents aren't around to see this. Or the deficit. Or the income inequality. They worried about nuclear war when all along it was colored people and the wealthy that would do us in.

Careful now, my wife comes from that part of the country, not China but one of those over there but she is an American, nationalized but might as well say born here, 2 years old when her family legally came to this country.

Sure, as long as everyone else can get amnesty for federal law infractions like money laundering, cross-state transfer of stolen goods, kidnapping etc etc. Why should 1 specific area get granted this continous freebies (reagans amnesty) and now the dems ? Give all US legal citizens amnesty for any infractions of law equivilant to this federal law being broken and maybe it will be equal. Otherwise the gov is as usual picking a segment of the population to cater to for votes.

Oh, i see. She's got the stamp of approval. She (or her parents) jumped through the hoops. That makes her different. Totally different. Otherwise she'd be worth letting starve, right?

All that defines you is the distinctions you imagine.
