But as the Washington Examiner piece says, “are Christie’s critics aware that there is broad bipartisan support for a high-tech system – more sophisticated even than FedEx – to track the entry and exit of immigrants in the United States?”
Trumpitis causes its victims to pursue The Donald’s throngs of supporters with all the subtlety of drunk frat pledges turned loose on a hazing dare – Walker without an ounce of Trump’s blustery appeal, Christie absent the sense to recognize that without immigrants New Jersey’s economy would go into a tailspin, and Jindal, Cruz and Carson without a passing regard for America’s founding document.
Giancarlo Tello, an immigrant in the country without legal permission who successfully pushed for New Jersey to implement in-state tuition for college students who are living in the country illegally, said Christie’s comments went too far.
“They can’t figure out how to get their message across given that Trump’s eating up all of the oxygen …” “They risk being portrayed as cartoon characters of themselves”. Ted Cruz in a distant second at 13%.
Chris Christie stated Sunday that it is “ridiculous” to assume he was evaluating individuals to packages when he recommended that the U.S. monitor foreigners visiting the nation the best way FedEx tracks packages.
In the last few days, it seems it has prompted at least two low-polling Republican presidential candidates, Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, to try to out-Trump Trump when it comes to immigration policy.
“Let’s use the same type of technology to make sure that 40 percent of the 11 million people here illegally don’t overstay their visas”, Christie said on the program, a day after touting the idea at a campaign event in New Hampshire. “Yet we let people come into this country with visas, and the minute they come in, we lose track of them“, he said. You know, if I go, if I get to, like, 15 questions in a row, count ’em at home. Christie said, “No, we can do it. And we should bring in the folks from FedEx to use the technology to be able to do it”.
Christie isn’t the first Republican politician to pitch using the global delivery service to address border security issues. “That is a legitimate issue for us to look at”, he said Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press.
Trump, who has a 21-point lead over his closest Republican rival, Mike Huckabee, according to a Reuters/Ipsos survey, has said he would deport undocumented immigrants and build a wall between the United States and Mexico.
While some GOP lawmakers, including Sen. Both candidates point to U.S. problems with illegal immigration and possible terrorist threats.
