Rejected immigration ceiling in 1990 Rep Gingrich voted AGAINST the Smith amendment to H.R.4300 that would have maintained hard caps on most categories of immigration. Unlike, Rep. Gingrich, 143 Representatives (of 435) feared that the 1990 legislation would unleash a chain reaction that would drive immigration numbers ever upwards. They backed an amendment that would have placed an absolute annual ceiling of 630,000 on family, worker and lottery immigration. But Rep. Gingrich helped defeat that ceiling 266 to 143.

Voted for huge increase in 1990 Rep. Gingrich helped pass H.R.4300 that increased the numbers in all categories of immigration. America?s immigration tradition had been around 250,000 immigrants a year until the 1980s when numbers rose dramatically to more than 500,000 a year. After Rep. Gingrich voted three times in 1990 in favor of raising limits, immigration has now snowballed to around 1,000,000 (one million) a year, contributing the majority of U.S. population and labor growth, congestion and sprawl.See detailed description.

Gingrich was for more immigration in 2006.

For increased legal immigration in 2009.

GINGRICH: What I said was that we should have a program to have a legal guest-worker system. We should be very clear that we want to increase legal immigration…

Gingrich has contempt for whites who vote for the GOP including his own former constituents.  Gingrich wants corporate money still.

Gingrich pretends to restrict immigration by talking up illegal immigration.  But he is really a big booster of immigration to take people’s jobs and keep wages down.

Men’s median wages the same as in 1973 see graph page 18 above link.  Women’s are what men’s were in 1963.  That is the real Newt Gingrich, a corporate shill.

  1. Newt fell in line with the major agribuisness traitors of the south. Is it a coincidence that the governor of Ga. and Lt. Gov. are named Perdue and Tyson. The collective farm factories produce mediocre food and astronomical profits for the new Aristocracy. Fight back plant a garden,raise chickens in your backyard. You will be amazed at the difference in taste. You will be rewarded financially and you will help to starve the beast.
