TAMPA, Fla. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he would allow illegal immigrants to earn U.S. citizenship if they serve America in uniform.

Gingrich says citizens of other countries already have the opportunity to earn U.S. citizenship by wearing a uniform. He says that children of undocumented immigrants too should have that option.

But, those non-citizens are not being rewarded for violating our laws. In fact, they are required to be lawfully present.

And Newt knows this, I'm sure, but he can't help but pander when he gets the opportunity...

But surely this is something you folks agree with him on....

Please explain how that is relevant to THIS thread; or, is even an illegal immigration topic. We are discussing his stance on military service for illegal aliens as an option for legalization and citizenship. Kindly comment on that issue in P&OC where the thread is posted.

Your assumption is wrong. I don't object to the Spanish language or consider it a ghetto language, just that immigrants and citizens should assimilate to ours. I don't care that they speak Spanish at home.

I disagree with allowing illegals to serve in our military to gain legalization/citizenship. IMO, only citizens should be allowed to do that.

Our current law won't let illegals serve, it's restricted to legal immigrants only.

Maybe she objects to legal immigrants being able to naturalize through military service as well...

The quoted website is an excellent reference, and reflects the requirements exactly...

Gingrich is the Republican version of Obama, ALL talk and empty promises.
