NEWT GINGRICH (GUEST): Well, look. I think there are a couple of things going on. First of all, a large part of the Democratic Party cares more about the fate of people who are not legally here than they care about Americans. I mean let's just be honest. They're biased. If you're an American citizen why should they worry about you? You're not their constituency, you're not who they're emotionally attached to - they're more concerned about the treatment of a six year old or a nine year old at the border then they are about the death of an American from an illegal immigrant. And I think that's just a deep bias of the Democratic Party that has grown stronger over the last thirty years.
