Christie Delays Public Signing of Immigrant Tuition Bill

But he’s already signed it privately.

CBS New York reports that Chris Christie has delayed a public ceremony in which he’d sign a bill offering in-state tuition to the children of illegal immigrants in New Jersey. Christie already signed the bill privately, so the delay shouldn’t have any substantive impact on the law’s implementation going forward.

The station reports: “On Monday, he had planned to meet with Hispanic leaders in Union City and hold a public signing at Colin Powell Elementary School. A spokesman says the signing will be rescheduled for later this week to accommodate all those who want to attend. … The issue had become a distraction for the Republican and possible 2016 presidential candidate.”
