Days after telling reporters that New Jersey will have to cut essential services to its citizens if the state does not receive financial aid from the federal government Governor Murphy has indicated that he is “open-minded to the $600 a week” for illegal immigrants who have lost wages and cannot collect unemployment benefits. Just days before Murphy told the media “We will just cut, cut, cut and cut. We won’t go bankrupt but we will leave our citizens in the lurch. At their most profound hour of need we will leave people on the beach alone helpless”. Why is it that Governor Murphy is willing to leave the tax paying legal New Jersey citizens who elected him “on the beach alone” but not those who are here illegally?
Earlier this week ICE announced that it has arrested 54 people in New Jersey in an action targeting criminal illegal immigrants who were released from local law enforcement custody into the community instead of being transferred to ICE. Criminal illegal immigrants in New Jersey cannot be released to ICE custody due to the New Jersey Attorney General’s Immigrant Trust Directive. What was Attorney General Grewal’s response? To order New Jersey Sheriffs to end their agreements with ICE.
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.
Last week on the Informed Conservative Blog we talked about New Jersey’s efforts to “legalize” marijuana, New Jersey’s hypocritical Democratic leadership, illegal immigrant students in New Jersey’s public schools, failed Camden County Freeholder and Pennsauken Township Committee candidate Vincent Squire continuing his con job, and we asked if New Jersey Republicans are mad yet. On the Informed Conservative Podcast our guest was Terry Beck who is leading the effort to recall Governor Murphy.
On this week’s Informed Conservative Podcast we talked about the NJGOP Statewide Leadership Summit in Atlantic City on March 1st and 2nd 2019, the March on Trenton on March 26, 2019, Amazon pulling out of its plan to move HQ2 to New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez taking credit, Ocasio-Cortez facing ethics questions after giving her boyfriend a Congressional email address, two men arrested in California for being part of a drug smuggling ring that smuggled drugs into the U.S. and to New Jersey, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatening a future Democratic President could declare a state of emergency on guns, the financial burden of illegal immigration on our school districts, the assisted suicide bill working its way through the New Jersey legislature and more.
Bowing down to pressure from advocacy groups such as the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition and the Pennsylvania ACLU new rules went into effect last week limiting how the Pennsylvania State Police interact with those suspected of being in the U.S. illegally and its cooperation with ICE. Some states have partnership agreements with ICE. Pennsylvania does not.
Last week the Informed Conservative covered NYC Mayor de Blasio wanting to end private control of property, Governor Murhy’s State of the State Address, Senator Menendez’s anger at Fox News for reporting that he was on the beach in Puerto Rico with a woman while the government shutdown continued, Investigative journalist Laura Loomer bringing illegal immigrants to Nancy Pelosi’s house seeking sanctuary, Alexandria Ocasio-Corte making a sexually charged comment during an interview, The View hosts challenging NYC Mayor de Blasio, New Jersey placing first again, Nancy Pelosi’s ridiculous solution to the crisis on our southern border, President Trump’s plan for border security and ending the government shutdown and Congressional Democrats showing they don’t care about border security, the government shutdown or the American people.
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.
