New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's position on immigration "extreme."

Clinton recently said during a stop in Nevada that there should be "full and equal citizenship" for 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country, saying that Republicans want to give such immigrants "second-class status."

Christie took issue with her position while meeting with supporters in New Hampshire on Thursday, CNN reported.

"I quite frankly think her position is extreme," Christie said.

"I think the path to citizenship is a problem for folks who have been waiting the appropriate way to get in, so I think we have to have a much broader conversation than just pandering," the New Jersey Republican and presidential hopeful said.

"We should not just be pandering. We should be talking about this honestly."

Christie said that he will detail his own immigration plan in a speech soon.

"Her position now is not really addressing what the country wants to hear about this," he said. "That's not a thoughtful position.

"I haven't met a person yet who's undocumented who came here and said, 'The reason I came here was because I wanted to vote,'" Christie said. "They say they come here because they wanted to work. I think that's where the focus has to be."
