Just a review, Newt re-iterated his plan for a "WWII style draft board" to decide whether or not someone's grandmama could stay in the US. Newt added a few caveats to his haphazard proposal:
Now, I don't think we're going to deport grandmothers and grandfathers who have 25 years of networking and relationships in a community. So I've suggested a World War II-style draft board where local citizens would review the applications, you could only apply if you proved that you were financially responsible caveat 1 , you proved you had genuine family ties caveat 2, and you had an American family sponsor you caveat 3. You still wouldn't get amnesty; you wouldn't get citizenship. You would get a residency permit. In order to apply for citizenship, you would have to go back to your own country and get in line behind everybody else and be processed as a person from that country caveat 4.So, basically, if you want to stay in the US as a second class citizen, you have to prostrate yourself in front of a group of Real Americans™ who will decide if you are worthy of staying, but even if these Real Americans™ decide you are good enough to stay, if you want to participate in American society, you have to cart your ass back to your native country and wait 20 years until you can maybe get full citizenship.
Yep, that'll work.
