Newt Gingrich is ‘only’ 68 years old and seemingly in good physical health.However, based on his performance at the foreign policy debate on November 22, Newt’s mental acumen is very much in doubt. Specifically, in calling for amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens, one must ask, “Is Newt Gingrich too old to remember 1986?”
It was in 1986 that the Republican Party decided to put an end to illegal invasions from Mexico, once and for all!
And just how did the party of conservative Ronald Reagan take on that noble, but difficult, attempt to enforce the rule of law and defend American sovereignty, borders, culture, and language?
Amnesty for the illegals!
Indeed, Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to 3-4 million illegals as part of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, said action taken ostensibly to end the nightmare of foreign invasions forever.
Besides amnesty, IRCA set forth severe punishments for employers who hired illegals, and for deportation of the offending illegal aliens themselves. Those provisions have been ignored by both Democrat and Republican administrations.
In the intervening 25 years, the illegal alien problem has exploded into a national disgrace, a criminal abdication of constitutional responsibility which has allowed as many as 20 million additional illegals to invade our precious nation.
This invasion was allowed to continue even during time of war when President George W. Bush foolishly refused to seal off the borders, which should been accomplished immediately after the events of September 11, 2001.
Because of W’s myopic vision, illegal invasions have continued to the point where American taxpayers now spend more than $100 billion each year to support uneducated, impoverished invaders who do not speak English, and who generally have no desire to learn the language of the land.
W’s foolishness has lead to the demise of once-great American cities like Los Angeles which have become slum- suburbs of Mexico in language and culture.
The election of Marxist Barack Obama has made the problem even worse as he sees illegal aliens as future Democrats and has stopped enforcing the rule of law altogether in some situations involving deportations.
So just what is it that makes Newt Gingrich so anxious to be “Obama Light” when it comes to illegals?
Too old to remember 1986, Newt?
