Bachmann: Gingrich ‘Most Liberal’ Candidate on Immigration

In an interview that aired tonight, Michele Bachmann attacked Newt Gingrich’s immigration position.

“He probably has the most liberal position on illegal immigration of any of the candidates in the race,” Bachmann told PBS Newshour.

“I think that we will deal with this issue as it comes forward, but we know what Speaker Gingrich’s position is,” she added. “He said quite clearly he would make legal 11 million illegal workers. No other candidate goes that extreme.”

Bachmann also expressed confidence that she could win the Iowa caucuses.

“We have identified already more supporters than even Mike Huckabee had when he won on caucus night. Now our plan is to mobilize and get them out to caucus night,” she said.
