(CNN) – During a trip to Mexico City Gov. Chris Christie, R-New Jersey, said he won't state position on immigration unless he runs for president:
"I have no role in the immigration debate, except for how it may affect the individual citizens of New Jersey, which I'll deal with as governor. But I won't have anything to say on immigration unless and until i become a candidate for president of the united states, if that happens, then I will articulate a full position on it. And you guys can pick it apart or praise it or damn it however you like," Christie said Thursday.
