Gingrich urges action against illegals - The Washington Times

Newt Gingrich is demanding that the Bush administration get serious about stopping illegal immigration.

The former House speaker wants the United States to completely seal off its border along Mexico and Canada, deport illegal aliens within 72 hours of their arrest and exclude U.S. courts from reviewing such deportations.


Wow. I truly have been waiting for someone to come out strongly on immigration reform (besides Hillary!). Newt is really positioning himself well for a run in 2008 (which looks like its a done deal). He does have to manage to convince all the social conservatives to vote his way, but this is a huge step towards doing that...
