Dem group likening Christie to Steve King on immigration

A Democratic group is going after Gov. Chris Christie in a video for his recent announcement that he would not support the version of New Jersey’s DREAM Act set to hit his desk.

American Bridge, a Democratic super PAC, is claiming in a video posted online that New Jersey’s governor is akin to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).

The video shows excerpts of Christie’s pre-election speech in which he told a group of Latino supporters he supports in-state tuition rates for undocumented students and then flashes to Christie’s radio interview where he told listeners he wouldn’t support the state Senate’s version of the bill.

According to ABC News, American Bridge is not putting any money behind the video right now.

However, the group added Christie to its list of Republicans who they say have made inflammatory statements on the issue of immigration. The list, found on the website “All Steve King’s Men” was formed after the congressman made his controversial claim that undocumented youth tend to be drug mules with “calves the size of cantaloupes,” the news outlet reports.
