Chris Christie Plans To Track Legal Immigrants Like FedEx Packages With Barcodes

Gov Chris Christie plans to barcode legal immigrants and track them like Fed Ex packages if he becomes president.

Ever since Donald Trump launched his campaign off the backs of undocumented immigrants, the absurdity of the xenophobic Republican base of voters and politicians looking to appease them is reaching new heights of insanity. Gov. Chris Christie, not too long ago was in favor of a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, but appears to be changing his tune.

Speaking at a town hall in New Hampshire, Christie became the latest a-hole to join in on immigrant bashing.

Chris Christie, speaking at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Saturday, compared legal immigrants to FedEx packages, arguing they should be tracked continuously by the government. Christie even promised to bring in FedEx founder Fred Smith to set up the system.

“At any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is. It’s on the truck. It’s at the station. It’s on the airplane. Yet we let people come to this country with visas, and the minute they come in, we lose track of them,” Christie said.

FedEx tracks its packages so efficiently by affixing a barcode to every package and scanning them at regular intervals.

And he's not even talking about undocumented immigrants. What's he got in store for them?

I'm speechless.
