Back in March I asked “Where are Murphy, Menendez, Booker ad other New Jersey Democrats in the case of Joe Guidice?”. Guidice is being held in an ICE detention center awaiting a final decision on his deportation to Saronno Italy. Meanwhile Governor Murphy and his appointed Attorney General have doubled down on their efforts to protect criminal illegal immigrants in New Jersey, refuse to allow New Jersey law enforcement to cooperate with ICE, allotted $3.5 million in tax payer funding to the legal defense of criminal illegal immigrants, allotted $4 million in tax payer funding to the education of illegal immigrants, want to give driver licenses to illegal immigrants and the list goes on. Joe Guidice was born in Italy but was brought to the U.S. by his parents when he was a year old and raised in New Jersey. Why are Murphy and other New Jersey Democrats not coming to his defense? Are Italians not a large enough voting bloc for New Jersey Democrats?
I am not a fan of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and probably would not know the name Joe Giudice if it were not for his legal issues. What I do know that Guidice was set to be released from prison on March 14, 2019 but is being held on an immigration detainer as his appeal on his deportation order makes it’s way through the court system. That appeal process could take up to a year. This leaves me wondering why we have not heard from Murphy, Menendez, Booker or other New Jersey Democrats on the Joe Guidice case. Guidice has been in the U.S. for 45-years and has a wife and children in New Jersey. Murphy has allotted $2.1 million for the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing detention or deportation in New Jersey. Why are New Jersey Democrats not stepping in to help Guidice?
