N.J. Gov. Christie flips, says he now wants in-state tuition for illegal immigrants

October 13, 2013

Immigrant-rights activists say New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reversed himself Saturday and endorsed giving illegal immigrants in-state college tuition rates, and said he will try to get the issue through his legislature in a lame-duck session.

Mr. Christie, who is up for re-election in November, is also seen as eyeing a bid for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination, but his support for in-state tuition could complicate that.

“We need tuition equality for everyone in New Jersey,” the activists said the governor said in a speech to the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey.

Afterward, the activists said, Mr. Christie told one of them that “We will get it done in the lame-duck.”

A message left with Mr. Christie’s office Sunday morning wasn’t returned.

    Only question is when Christie will officially change party affiliation.

    Kristy Kreme Christy is a RINO certainly – if not just a Democrat. He has flopped several times before. He should not even be on the Republican list for potential presidential candidates – absolutely no MORE RINO’S!

  • akright says:

    Another Republicrat (A Republican who has turned on his party and promotes the Democrat agenda) – he lost the Republican vote in his state so now has to go after the illegals vote.

    Let’s see now. ILLEGAL ALIENS cannot be full time CITIZENS of ANY State as they are Resident Citizens of their native STATE.

    If they are allowed to have In-State college tuition simply because they are located within the state then so too should EVERY STUDENT from any other State attending a New Jersey institution of higher learning.

    If a student from Nebraska of Kentucky, or Utah, or any of 46 other states and a couple of territories is denied in-state tuition while ILLEGAL ALIENS are allowed it then this becomes a case of blatant discrimination AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    I know a couple of lawyers who might like to take a shot across New Jersey’s bows.

    It never fails to amaze me how STUPID establishment/CORRUPT, taxpayer screwing Republicans are. ILLEGALS/Mexicans want SOCIALISM, big, fat “freebies” from US, the TAXPAYERS. They have been thoroughly indoctrinated into the Democrat way of life, STEAL, STEAL & STEAL some more. They will NEVER, EVER vote Republican. Handing Democrats 33 million more voters seems like a really STUPID idea to me. Instead of F–KING us over, as usual, they SHOULD be working on securing the border, using every means necessary to shut off the work & entitlement gravy train for the illegals & their P O S, corrupt employers & then we wouldn’t have to worry about having our country taken over by 3rd world racists who have NO LOYALTY to it whatsoever!

    OUR forefathers fought & DIED to give US a better way of life/FREEDOM, to allow politicians/whores to pimp it off for bribes & votes is beyond disgusting.

    All you PRETEND bleeding hearts, how about some compassion for the VICTIMS instead of the perps!

    Why would any Republican want to support him after he gave the 2012 election to Obama? He will say or do whatever he thinks is needed at the moment, the kind of politician we need to get rid of.

  • VirgoVince says:

  • Art Hock says:

    He is just another fat phony who should join the Dumbocrat Party so he can be closer to his butt buddy Obama.

  • defiant1 says:

    what do you expect from an Obama-loving RINO! Just another piece of RINO trash,
