Immigrants and their advocates today found an unlikely ally: the top law enforcement officer in New Jersey.

U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie surprised many at a Dover church public forum when he said sneaking into the United States is not a criminal act.

"Being in this country without proper documentation is not a crime," Christie told more than 60 residents and town officials. "The whole phrase of 'illegal immigrant' connotes that the person, by just being here, is committing a crime."

Being undocumented may be a civil wrong, but it's not a criminal act, Christie said.

Chris Christie was never the Great Republican Hope for NJ Governor in 2009, Corzine will not run for a 2nd term.

Chris Christie who is a registered Dem, will run for Gov.

Mean time, he should be fired and run out of town.

His statments make me sick to my stomach, this is a U.S. Attorney?
