Christie: I'm not taking a position on legalization until the border is secured -- but citizenship is out

Christie said, in response to a question on what he would do with the people in the US illegally [relevant remarks begin around 3:10] “Never a path to citizenship. No one who comes here, knowingly, illegally, should be rewarded with the greatest possession that anyone can have, and that’s an American passport, it just shouldn’t happen. And we can’t even begin to talk about legalization until we secure the border.”

He added that he wouldn’t “begin to talk about” what to do with people already in the country until the border is secured, “then we can have a national conversation about it, and see where it lands, but I’m not taking any position on that now.”
