Newt: Go to Church, Pay Taxes, Get Amnesty (VIDEO)

It's a simple formula: Go to church, pay some taxes ... get your amnesty!

Bonus points for having grandchildren and for breaking the law for at least 25 years:

If you’ve been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’ve been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church, I don’t think we’re going to separate you from your family, uproot you forcefully and kick you out.
I smell a straw man.

Here's a longer clip for context.

When Newt Gingrich gave his pro-amnesty opinion, I fired off a few tweets:

Who knew that you can't enforce laws if it will inconvenience families? There are lot of people in jail who apparently didn’t get that memo.

The Lonely Conservative calls it "Newt's Heartless Moment," referring to Rick Perry's famous anti-enforcement gaffe.

On the plus side, the MSM will probably reward Newt by cutting back on the smears for a couple of days. (UPDATE: Within two hours of the debate's end, the fawning begins.)

UPDATE II: Gingrich mentioned the Krieble Foundation's "Red Card Solution."
