Jingle bells and no borders this Christmas, Save Jerseyans?
That’s if New Jersey’s top law enforcement official gets his way.
According to a new report from Michael Symons of NJ 101.5, N.J. Attorney General Gurbir Grewal plans to issue a directive making New Jersey a de facto ‘Sanctuary State’ in “in two to three weeks.”
NJ 101.5 has the full story here.
Phil Murphy openly campaigned on making New Jersey a “sanctuary state” — a place where law enforcement is empowered to decline cooperation with federal officials seeking to enforce immigration laws. A court battle between the State of California and the Trump Administration is currently works its way through the 9th Circuit and is guaranteed to be a hot button issue in the 2020 Election.
The directive is coming on the tail of the gruesome story of an illegally-present foreign national who, after his release from Middlesex County Jail in defiance of ICE, allegedly murdered three people in Missouri.
