N.J. Democrat bill would bar the term “illegal alien” from state government use

Their priorities aren’t your priorities, Save Jerseyans.

On Monday, a bill (S2599) sponsored by State Sen. Nilsa Cruz-Perez (D-Barrington) emerged from New Jersey Senate’s State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee that would ban the words “alien” and “illegal alien” from the state code. “Foreign national” and “undocumented foreign national” would take their place. The Democrat-dominated committee voted 3-0 for the bill (the only Jim Republican – Holzapfel – didn’t vote).

The proposed legislation specifically “prohibits State executive agencies from using those terms in any proposed or final rule, regulation, interpretation, publication, or other document, display, or sign issued by the agency after the effective date of this bill, except to the extent that they are used in quoting or reproducing text written by a source other than an officer or employee of the agency” according to the accompanying statement.

An identical bill in the Assembly (A3333) is still awaiting action in the Assembly Oversight, Reform and Federal Relations Committee.

New Jersey became a “sanctuary state” under Phil Murphy and illegal aliens (yes, we’re still using the proper term here) have been the beneficiaries of a growing list of taxpayer-funded goodies handed out by the Murphy Administration.
