Chris Christie wants to track immigrants like FedEx packages
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Chris Christie says if he becomes president, he will track immigrants like FedEx packages.
The Republican presidential candidate made the statements at a town hall in New Hampshire Saturday.
He said the government needs to be more like the shipping company, and he would use the company’s executives to help fix the immigration system.
“I’m going ask Fred Smith, the founder of FedEx, come work for the government for three months,” Christie said. “Just come for three months to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and show these people.”
Christie is not the first politician to cite FedEx as a model for addressing illegal immigration; Virginia representatives Barbara Comstock and Newt Gingrich have made similar suggestions in the past.
