Newt Gingrich talks massive immigration crack down with Bill O’Reilly
Gingrich tries to bolster his immigration credibility with right wing
Presidential hopeful Newt Ginrich must be hoping that Herman Cain's alleged infidelities and Mitt Romney's inconsistency on the issues will bolster his own political fortunes.
But first he has to get past his own shortcomings, which include multiple marriages, major ethics violations charges and his own supposed softness on immigration reform.
This week to bolster his credibility on the immigration front Ginrich took the opportunity to talk tough to Fox New's Bill O'Reilly this week
In a transcript of their discussion on the Fox News website the conversation went like this:
O'REILLY: All right, let's go to immigration. Border fence, would you put a border fence from Brownsville in San Diego if you were president?
O'REILLY: Would you move the National Guard down to the border in certain precincts that are dangerous and would put the U.S. National Guard to back up the border.
GINGRICH: Sure, I would use whatever - look I would use whatever resources we needed to. I've said, you know 23,000 Department of Homeland Security employees in the Washington D.C. area. I'd move half of them to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona if we need the manpower.
O'REILLY: Well, that would just frighten the people not to come here because they'll being the federal employees. I mean, President Bush did not want to -
GINGRICH: I would be willing to use -- I would be willing to reinforce, there's a profound reason to not get the military too close the drug dealing because of its enormous potential for corruption. But I think as reinforcement for local sheriffs, as reinforcement for local law enforcement and for the border patrol you certainly would use whatever level of military you use to make sure we had overwhelming power.
O'REILLY: Ok because President Bush was not -- did not want to do that. He did not for whatever reason and he never clearly articulated it.
O'REILLY: He did not want to use the National Guard to get down there and help Arizona in particular which is just awash with the whole of the stuff.
And Arnold Schwarzenegger the Governor of California flat out refused to do it when he could have called out the National Guard. They refused to do it.
Do you understand President Bush and Governor Schwarzenegger's reluctance?
