You have to hand it to Governor Murphy. He’s doing exactly what he told us he’d do. He told us he’d make New Jersey a sanctuary state. He told us he’d push for a $15 minimum wage and legalized recreational marijuana. He even told us he’d raise taxes! He also said he’d push for driver licenses for illegal undocumented immigrants. In a record low turn out at the polls New Jersey elected him anyway. Some may say that New Jerseyans now have to take their medicine. That we got what we deserved for not showing up to vote. Others are willing to fight back against Murphy’s agenda they feel is wrong for New Jersey.
Three Ocean County Republicans have started the fight against Murphy’s sanctuary dream. NJ State Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove have started an online petition opposing driver licenses for illegal immigrants. They released a statement saying “Along with the benefits that New Jersey already has in place for illegal aliens, including free in-state college tuition, allowing them to obtain driver’s licenses will firmly establish New Jersey as a sanctuary state. t’s not surprising in the least that this proposal has drawn outrage from across our legislative district”.
Legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Annette Quijano and Senator Joseph Vitale would allow residents unable to prove they are legally in the U.S. to driver’s licenses and ID cards. This after Murphy budged $2.1 million for the defense of illegal immigrants facing detention or deportation, New Jersey Attorney General Grewal released his sanctuary rules prohibiting New Jersey law enforcement officers from cooperating with ICE and Murphy signed legislation allowing illegal immigrants to get college financial aid
The proposed legislation would allow licenses for the estimated 460,000 undocumented illegal immigrants in New Jersey and would not require adherence to the six point identification verification system that legal New Jersey residents must comply with. There are two types of licenses being proposed. One would be strictly for driving and the other would be federal Real ID compliant allowing licenses holders to board domestic flights. That’s right. Just two months after the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that cost almost 3,000 Americans their lives Democrats in Trenton proposed legislation to give Real ID compliant driver licenses to undocumented illegal immigrants that would allow them to board airplanes. Let that sink in!
As residents of New Jersey it’s time we take action and tell Murphy and the Democrats in the legislature that their vision for New Jersey is wrong and is chasing the revenue and job creators and law abiding tax paying residents out of the state. There are several issues on Murphy’s agenda that New Jerseyans disagree with but this is a great place to start.
