In Arizona, Newt provides a surprise stance on immigration:
My stand is that we should have absolute control over the border,” Gingrich said. “We should have English as the official language of government.”
Although unlike many of his Republican counterparts, Gingrich has a positive plan for citizens here illegally. He wants to modernize the deportation laws
“[Illegal immigrants] should pay a penalty, but they should then get a Red Card which would not put them on the road for citizenship, but it would bring them in from illegality,” he said. “It would make them part of the community, and their children and grandchildren could aspire to become American citizens.”
If Newt continues his comeback within the Republican Party primary, he will have to walk this one back.
