Gingrich's New Immigration Ad
Lest we forget there's still another Republican considering a presidential campaign, Newt Gingrich is out with a new ad criticizing immigration proposals expected to be reconsidered soon by the Senate.
The ad, sponsored by the group Citizens United, features Gingrich explaining why he doesn't support what he calls, "The McCain-Kennedy immigration plan."
Gingrich starts by reminding viewers that Mohammed Atta, and other 9/11 hijackers, were in the United States illegally, and that the borders remain open to gang members and potential terrorists.
"This bill does not even allow convicted criminals to be deported. That's wrong," he says.
"Amnesty makes our laws meaningless, and invites millions more to cross the borders illegally, making the problem worse, not better," he declares.
The ad ends with the toll-free number for Citizens United.
Remember, as he told us back in March, Gingrich doesn't plan to make a decision on running for president until late September. Do you think having Gingrich front an ad paid for by a group holding similar beliefs to his own is part of his presidential campaign strategy? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
