LD1: Testa says Murphy is making “ICE the enemy” while “New Jersey is sinking”

VINELAND, NJ – 2019 LD1 State Senate candidate Michael Testa (R-Vineland) took direct aim at the Murphy Administration on Friday afternoon following Thursday’s issued directive formalizing New Jersey’s status as a sanctuary state:

“The Murphy Administration’s new immigration directive is an outrage that will immediately make our communities less safe and put law-abiding citizens at risk. Governor Murphy has made the hardworking men and women of ICE the enemy, while creating a situation that will inevitably lead to violent criminals like rapists and domestic abusers being released back in to our neighborhoods.

“Governor Murphy and South Jersey legislative Democrats will have you believe that all is well in the Garden State, but while their band plays on, the S.S. New Jersey is sinking.

“Republicans in Cape May, Cumberland and Atlantic Counties must send a clear message by opposing every Democrat on the ballot in 2019. While they pretend to be moderates, our incumbent Democrat legislators endorsed Phil Murphy for Governor and dutifully cast votes in support of the very Senate and Assembly leadership that is forcing this reckless agenda down our throats. Enough is enough. Time to back our state.”
