“Illegal Immigrants” isn’t a thing.

I wordDon’t believe us? Ask Chris Christie —

LATimes – In 2008, when Christie was the U.S. attorney in New Jersey, he told a church forum that “being in this country without proper documentation is not a crime.”

Christie, who was appointed to that position by President George W. Bush, went on to say that an immigrant lacking documents is a civil wrong.

“The whole phrase of ‘illegal immigrant’ connotes that the person, by just being here, is committing a crime,” he said then. “Don’t let people make you believe that that’s a crime that the U.S. attorney’s office should be doing something about.”
