New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican candidate for president, has recently suggested the government take ideas from the private sector to handle the problem of illegal immigration.
Christie has suggested the government hire Frederick W. Smith, founder of FedEx, to design a system that tracks immigrants the way FedEx tracks packages. Christie expanded on the idea at a recent campaign stop.
“I don’t see why we can’t microchip immigrants the same way we do pets,” Christie said. “That way, if immigrants are caught we can just wave their hand in front of a scanner and we can see if they are legal or not. If they are here illegally, they should be automatically deported.”
Brian Blank, a spokesman for the National White Alliance (NWA,) took it one step further.
“The government should put fast-acting poison in the chips,” he said. “As soon as someone’s visa has expired, the poison activates and they drop dead. That would solve the illegal immigration problem real quick.”
