Comment: Republican Immigration Choice - National Public Radio delineates the radical differences between the current frontrunners for the Republican nomination, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. "At the latest CNN debate, Gingrich, the former House speaker, said: 'I don't see how the party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter-century. And I'm prepared to take the heat for saying, let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality.' Gingrich has been working on this issue for a long time, telling Republicans they need to find a position somewhere between amnesty and deportation. Several of Gingrich's many companies are designed to reach out to Hispanics, including a bilingual website called The Americano Romney, on the other hand, has taken a harder line shared by many in the GOP grass roots. 'We've got to stop illegal immigration. That means turning off the magnets of amnesty: in-state tuition for illegal aliens, employers that knowingly hire people that have come here illegally They should not be allowed to stay in this country and be given permanent residency or citizenship merely because they've come here illegally.' " It is interesting that Gingrich, who is regarded as an ideological extremist, holds a position on immigration closer to the mainstream, and Romney, who is considered to be a middle of the roader, is carrying the mantle of the extreme anti-immigrationist wing of the Republican Party. Please let us know your thoughts on immigration positions of Republican Presidential candidates by commenting in our letters section or by writing to us at Erratum: In yesterday's issue of Immigration Daily we mistakenly referred to Alabama Attorney General as Arizona AG. We thank the readers who pointed out this error to us.
