The recent story out of Newark about three college students who were murdered, execution style, in a school playground was painful. Adding a political angle to the horrible crime, one of the suspects is reportedly an immigrant from Peru who entered the country illegally. Another suspect is a legal immigrant from Nicaragua.

In light of the murders, Newt Gingrich has a message for the nation: immigrants are more dangerous than terrorists.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday he is “sickened” that President Bush and Congress went on vacation “while young Americans in our cities are massacred” by illegal immigrants. […]

Gingrich said that the “war here at home” against illegal immigrants is “even more deadly than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

“The federal government’s incompetence, timidity and uncoordinated efforts to identify and deport criminal illegal aliens have had devastating consequences for innocent Americans,” Gingrich said, in a newsletter.

Dave Neiwert details just how offensive this really is.
