Today on Fox News, former House speaker Newt Gingrich attempted to argue that the United States doesn’t have an “image problem” abroad. His evidence? Undocumented immigration:
I’ll give you one simple test. Tomorrow morning, will more people try to sneak into the U.S., or sneak out of the U.S.? What strikes me, if millions of people are trying to sneak into the U.S., we don’t exactly have an image problem overseas.
Note to Newt: Most undocumented immigrants come from Mexico, which is not “overseas.”
