The New Jersey Legislature began its lame-duck session yesterday. It’s expected that the Legislature will be busy trying to bring forward controversial bills that they didn’t want to move forward before the 2019 election to not damage Democratic candidates and before the new session begins in January in hopes the voters will forget by the 2020 election. Those bills will most likely include driver licenses for illegal immigrants, “legalized” marijuana (marijuana cannot be legalized on a state level while remaining federally illegal), and banning single use plastics. Expect Murphy to move his radical agenda forward knowing that voters have short memories and will forget before the 2020 election and before he is up for re-election in 2021.
New Jersey’s radical leftist Governor is at it again. Speaking to a group in Bloomfield Monday night Governor Murphy said he would sign a bill granting undocumented illegal immigrants drivers licenses if a bill crossed his desk calling it a “no brainer.” “It’s a no-brainer. I’m frustrated that it’s not on my desk. I encourage you to call your Assembly person, your Senator, and ask him why it is stuck and not on the Governor’s desk because I will sign it” Murphy told a group inside Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield. The bill would give driver licenses to an estimated 400,000 undocumented illegal immigrants in New Jersey.
A couple of weeks ago a study showed that New Jersey is the #1 state in the country that people leave. New Jersey just came in first again and again in a category that is not good for New Jerseyans. Yesterday NJ 101.5 radio reported on an ATTOM Data Solutions study showing New Jersey’s rate of foreclosure was the highest among all 50 states and D.C. in 2018.
The Informed Conservative Blog focused more on national politics this week as the federal government shutdown reaches it’s 23rd day. This week we asked what impact the federal government shutdown is having on New Jersey, if there is a mental health crisis in the Democratic party, we discussed the President’s address to the nation and the Democrats lack of credible response, asked you to take action and tell Governor Murphy that you oppose driver licenses for illegal immigrants, asked when Democrats started hating America, where Democrats are while President Trump is working to end the shutdown and reminded you of Elián González.
