NJ gubernatorial candidates on immigration

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - September 15, 2009 Gov. Jon S. Corzine and Republican Chris Christie have said the federal government must reform the system.

As far as issues the state controls, both agree that New Jersey should not issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.

Corzine and Christie say they have reservations about a program that allows local law enforcement to question people about their immigration status.

The candidates differ on whether illegal immigrants who are brought to the state as children should be eligible for in-state college tuition.

Corzine supports the idea and Christie opposes it.
