What Do You Think of Newt's Stance on Immigration?

Newt Gingrich is coming to the Peninsula Friday for the GOP Convention. He wants to reform the immigration system, making it easier to deport criminals while making it easier for visitors and talented professionals to come to the U.S.

 

Newt Gingrich is coming to Burlingame this weekend to headline the California Republican Party spring convention. 

The presidential candidate has outlined his legislative proposals should he be elected into office.

One of those is to "Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US," according to his campaign website.

Does the immigration system need to be reformed, making it easier to deport criminals while making it easier for visitors and talented professionals to come to the U.S.?

Do you think English should be the official language for America?

touche' - oooh - dang, that's french. it's absolutely hilarious listening to these English only proponents - knowing they have never read Chaucer. And yes the california economy would be dead in the water without our friendly and capable neighbors to the south.

Gary - academic references count. This is the opinion of Robert Longley. From the about.com bio page: Robert holds a Bachelor of Science degree in landscape architecture, with and emphasis in urban and regional planning from Texas A&M University. So - you cite some Texan with a degree in landscape architecture. Ummm. that wont do.

bren - don't waste your time. Gary is citing the opinion of a single person - a landscaper who is probably afraid of losing his job to an immigrant. and are we surprised? Maybe he heard it on the AM radio too - who cares. The fact is that the California Economy would collapse without our friendly and capable neighbors from the south. see also http://www.caimmigrant.org/ see also http://www.ppic.org/main/policyarea.asp?i=8
