Governor Flounder aka Chris Christie may be doomed as far as having any chance to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination but that won’t stop him from spouting asinine nonsense. In an attempt to overcome his dismal poll numbers, the boss man from the Sopranos state is taking a whack at putting his own stamp on the illegal alien problem. Christie is proposing that a Federal Express style tracking system be implemented in order to keep tabs on foreign visitors and that a Chris Christie administration would contract devising the system out to FedEx CEO Fred Smith - likely at a steep cost to taxpayers. You have to hand it to the guy, he is great at pulling stuff out of his big fat ass that are the wet dreams of a totalitarian state and this system could be the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent leading to the tracking of far more folks than only the illegals.
As reported by CNN in the story “Christie: Track immigrants like FedEx packages”:
Chris Christie said Saturday that if elected president, he will track undocumented immigrants like FedEx packages.
"I'm going to have Fred Smith, the founder of FedEx, come work for the government for three months. Just come for three months to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and show these people," the New Jersey governor said at a town hall event here.
Christie added that while FedEx can track boxes, the U.S. can't track undocumented immigrants.
"You go online and at any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is," he said. "Yet we let people come into this country with visas, and the minute they come in, we lose track of them."
Christie added, "We need to have a system that tracks you from the moment you come in and then when your time is up," he said. "However long your visa is, then we go get you and tap you on the shoulder and say, 'Excuse me, it's time to go.'"
Smith is the father of Samantha Smith, a Christie spokeswoman.
Governor Christie doesn’t bother to mention how he would implement his brilliant system on the millions of illegal aliens and their relatives who are already in the U.S.A. thanks to the failure to secure our porous southern border. What this scheme would more likely lead to is a tracking system that would be a failure when it comes to illegal aliens but would work like a charm when it comes to the federal government keeping tabs on millions of law-abiding American citizens and especially political dissidents.
Just look at how the NSA’s anti-terrorist programs got out of control and have been used to monitor the phone calls, internet activity and financial transactions of American citizens who have never done one damned thing wrong. The terrorists (or in this case immigrants) will end up being the last priority when something like this is rolled out. God forbid, this could even be the beginning of a debate leading to the implanting of microchips into people so that the government can be sure that they aren’t engaging in political activism or behavior deemed to be critical to the establishment.
National security is the last refuge of a scoundrel and Christie, the very definition of a big government loving fascist pig is going to whip up a sense of fear and dread to make a last ditch effort to close the distance between himself and Donald Trump. Pardon the pun but fat chance.
