Earlier this week we reported that Murphy and Grewal were not happy that New Jersey sheriffs are ignoring their Immigrant Trust Directive. Grewal’s office, who is sworn to enforce the law, threatened New Jersey law enforcement officers who are performing their sworn duty by arresting legal immigrants who are breaking the law. Many applauded the Monmouth and Cape May County sheriffs and called on other New Jersey counties to follow suit. It sounds like Ocean County’s Board of Freeholders is following their leads and voted to sue the Murphy Administration over the Immigrant Trust Directive stating “NJ is either part of the US or it’s not”.
The Asbury Park Press is reporting that the Ocean County Board of Freeholders agreed Wednesday night to file a federal lawsuit against Governor Murphy’s administration over the directive that prohibits state, county and local law enforcement agencies from cooperating with ICE in New Jersey.
ICE continues to protect New Jersey residents despite Grewal’s effort to restrict the cooperation of New jersey law enforcement. It’s been reported that ICE raids will take place across America this weekend including in New Jersey. Most New Jersey residents and many in law enforcement oppose Murphy and Grewal’s sanctuary dream. New jerseyans believe that the Governor and Attorney General have priorities that are not in-line with the average middle class New Jersey tax payer and citizen.
Meanwhile Murphy’s budget included $3.1 Million for the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing detention or deportation which is an increase of more than $1 million from his last budget. This falls short of the $15 million advocates told Murphy they needed to defend more than 2,000 detainees in New Jersey. Tax payers in New Jersey continue to be forced to pay for Murphy’s Liberal agenda and war against Washington.
Also, Murphy spent the July 4th holiday signing an executive order that created the Office of New Americans to help immigrants. Murphy asked the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement to allow New Jersey to have a greater role in the integration of refugees. Governor Christie had pulled the state out of this program. Murphy said “While the federal government takes action that prevents immigrants from seeking the American Dream, New Jersey will fight for our brothers and sisters and stand against the hatred and bigotry coming from Washington,”
Murphy has made it clear that the middle class tax paying citizens of New Jersey are not his priority. Murphy and his appointed Attorney General Grewal are hampering law enforcement’s efforts to arrest criminals and enforce federal immigration law. Murphy is using our tax dollars to further his Liberal agenda and his war on President Trump. Even New Jersey’s Democratic leadership seems to have had enough of him.
