Warren County backs Ocean’s legal challenge to Murphy’s Sanctuary State

BELVIDERE, N.J. – Another New Jersey county is declaring against the Phil Murphy Sanctuary State.

Last week before the Labor Day holiday weekend, Warren County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders voted unanimously to endorse Ocean County’s lawsuit against the Murphy Administration. The vote came after an hour of public comment. 

“All law enforcement agencies need to cooperate, whether it be federal, state or local,” Freeholder Director Jason J. Sarnoski said, voicing his opposition to the state attorney general’s directive which took effective back in spring 2019.

The North Jersey ‘red’ county is not, however, quite ready to join the lawsuit formally or initiate litigation of its own.

“Not at this time but we did feel this was best action being taken across the state,” Freeholder James Kern told Save Jersey on Friday.
