“Gingrich’s Words on Immigration Become a Target” (TIMES, 11/24/11)


     If illegal immigrant nuclear families have been “paying taxes  and obeying the law,” belong to “a local church,” are proficient in English and buy health insurance, thus putting themselves on a “path to legality which stops short of citizenship with the right to vote,” they can remain in the United States, says Newt Gingrich.

     They can work here (especially for low wages and often in poor working environments that U.S. citizens would spurn) but they cannot vote nor probably join a labor union.  In other words, they are acceptable as modern-day serfs who are indispensable to some American entrepreneurs concerned only with increasing their profits.

     Yeah, that sounds like a policy Newt Gingrich would advocate.

     Happy Thanksgiving!
