  4. Chris Christie:

    We've got to penalize employers who hire people who are here illegally, because the fact is that that shouldn't happen and it's exploiting American workers. But in addition to that, it's exploiting many of those people who are here illegally because they're being paid less money. So we need to make bigger fines to make sure that those employers who violate the law are being held accountable.

  5. Marco Rubio:

    He's a supporter of legalizing people that are in this country illegally. If he's changed that position -- and certainly he has a right to change his position on that issue -- but he should be clear about that, on other issues regarding immigration, he's not that much further than I am. He wanted to double the number of green cards. He wanted a 500% increase in the number of H1B visas. So everybody running for president on the Republican side in one way or shape supports some form or fashion the legalization of people that are in this country illegally.
