Anti-Immigration Group's Subtle Swipe at Gingrich

Numbers USA, which opposes legal immigration on the grounds that it takes jobs from Americans, is beginning a $150,000 statewide television blitz leading up to the Jan. 3 caucus in Iowa. While the ad doesn't single out any of the Republican presidential candidates and shows images of several of them, Newt Gingrich shares the screen with President Obama when the narrator says, "They're even talking AMNESTY that will make it easier for illegal aliens to take jobs Americans want.'' 

It's a subtle swipe at the former House Speaker's proposal to allow some longtime undocumented workers to stay in this country -- and the last thing Gingrich needs in Iowa, where he is being pilloried by attack ads from rivals and their super-PACS.
