Finally, some humanity on immigration
Newt Gingrich’s nuanced ideas about immigration, more than Mitt Romney’s stated ones, reflect what most Americans feel: Illegal immigrants are people, not statistics. Do any of these GOP candidates truly want to live with the human consequences of a policy that says to round ’em up - no matter the circumstances - and send ’em home? It’s hard to believe Romney does. But on immigration, he’s so bound to his standard debating line about eliminating “magnets’’ that he’s backed himself into a corner.
