Newly-minted U.S. Senator Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ) has cast his first few votes since taking the oath of office on Monday, Save Jerseyans.
On Tuesday, Senator Chiesa voted “YEA” on two procedural measures to permit a floor vote on S-744, an immigration “reform” package.
The GOP frontrunner in the race to succeed Chiesa, Steve Lonegan, issued a statement calling S-744 “a pure and simple amnesty for illegal aliens and if I were a member of the U.S. Senate, I would vote no.”
“Obama Rubber Stamps Cory Booker, Frank Pallone, Rush Holt and Sheila Oliver all support amnesty for illegal aliens,” Lonegan added, naming each and every potential Democrat rival in the October general. “I oppose it. It makes no difference who they nominate. They’re all the same.”
