Even after Steinle verdict? N.J. Democrat tells rally: Sanctuary State is a ‘welcoming word’

Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), a former Democrat primary gubernatorial hopeful, rallied in Red Bank on Friday night and doubled-down on his parties’ push to turn New Jersey into a so-called ‘Sanctuary State’ in defiance of federal law.

‘We have to make sure that all of the elected official in this state know that the word Sanctuary State is a welcoming word,” declared the veteran legislator, accusing those with opposing views of perpetuating fear despite overwhelming data demonstrating a clear correlation between illegal immigration and crime.

Wisniewski’s provocative words came shortly after the acquittal of the accused murderer of 32-year old Katie Steinle by a California jury.

Cash-strapped New Jersey’s tab for illegal immigration is already America’s 5th largest at almost $4.5 billion annually; that isn’t stopping New Jersey Democrats from proposing driver’s licenses for illegals, too.
