    Gingrich targets "sanctuaries" for illegal immigrants
    Reuters ^ | Nov.28, 2011 | Harriet McLeod

    CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich told a South Carolina town hall on Monday that as president he would block federal funds to any city that "declared itself a sanctuary" for illegal immigrants.
    Gingrich, fresh from a key endorsement from an influential New Hampshire newspaper, is on a three-day swing through South Carolina, an early primary state that his campaign has dubbed his "southern firewall."

    "No American president has the right to side with foreigners," Gingrich told a crowd of hundreds at the College of Charleston, after reciting a list of 16 countries that he said had filed friend of the court briefs in a Justice Department lawsuit against South Carolina's new immigration law.

    The law, which goes into effect on January 1 barring an injunction from a federal court, requires police officers to check the immigration status of anyone they stop or detain for another reason and makes it a felony to knowingly transport or harbor undocumented immigrants.

    Nancy Pelosi--whom has declared San Francisco to be a sanctuary city is going to get a few wrinkles (requiring some more botox) over this one---

    But every president is required to uphold the law and defend the Constitution.

    This is clearly a transparent and pathetic effort on Gingrich’s part to make up for the earlier immigration misstep.

    And how exactly would he ‘block Federal funds’? Appropriations and funding is the purview of Congress, not the Executive. Or are conservatives advocating the president act extra-judicially, as they’ve accused Obama?

    Also, depending on what the funding is for and how the effected laws are written, such action could be construed as punitive and in violation of Americans’ due process and equal protection rights, as well as the due process rights of both legal and illegal immigrants.

    Last, such an action won’t have any effect on a given city, in fact it will only strengthen the city’s resolve.

    Gingrich again demonstrates his unfitness to be president.

    You just want the entire fucking third world to live within the borders of this country don't you? The president has the power to do this as his main powers is to defend the states, which those sack of shit from Obama to George w Bush illegally not done. Theres NO DUE FUCKING PROCESS FOR ILLEGALs! IF You come into the US of A you need to be sent back home and if you come into the US of A heavily armed you need to DIE! Time for the president to defend the states and do the job he is put into office to do!

    Go Newt, GO!!!
