New Jersey is a Sanctuary State Effective Today

The Murphy Administration’s directive that New Jersey Police and Corrections Officers thwart and/or refuse to cooperate with the enforcement of federal immigration laws took effect today, according to a NJ.com report.

Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced the sanctuary policies in November:

1. No asking about immigration status, unless it’s relevant to an investigation of a serious crime.

2. No helping with ICE raids.

3. Corrections officers can only hold prisoners for ICE in limited circumstances.

4. Prosecutors can’t discredit witnesses in court based on their immigration status.

5. Law enforcement agencies have to help unauthorized immigrants apply for visas.

6. No more making side deals with ICE to deputize local police as immigration officers.

7. Report every instance where cops helped ICE.

  3. Greg said at 11:21 pm on March 15th, 2019:

    Murphy’s an idiot and another corrupt former Goldman-Sachs employee. When will the people of this state learn we cannot continue to vote people like this into office. Enough politics and think about the security of the citizens of this state and the country. It’s all about politics.

  4. Just another reason said at 9:15 am on March 16th, 2019:

    Not if I can help it. Glad I left when I did, but I have relatives there and an eye for an eye is my rule of thumb.

    Been traveling through and to N.J. for years. It used to be referred to as the rectum of the USA. Do you want all of the illegals sent to N.J. or do the rest of us have to split them up. N.J. mafia, and now immigrant capital of the USA.

  10. Michael said at 9:28 am on March 20th, 2019:

    You Dems voted for this crap because Kim was was with Chrisitie cabinet and you didn’t want a repeat?? News flash, she was attorney general under his administration and she obeyed her position without undermining. Also, Christie never endorsed Kim because should wasn’t apart of that problematic lunatics agenda and she disagreed with his morals and this is one reason why she ran to fix NJ! Because of Murphy, people are moving out in the thousands including my wife and I. We republicans warned you all not to vote for a Dem candidate any more especially this grinch! You reap what you sow! Vote Republican!!

  11. Diane said at 10:25 am on March 20th, 2019:

    Wow, just when you think this governor has done his last dirty deed…he does this! Do these politicians not see ( or want to see) what has happened in CA and many other sanctuary states? Taxes forced me out of NJ but my children and family are still there….I wish I could pull them all out of there….between the Orthodox in Lakewood and now the illegals what will happen to this once beautiful state? Vote them out!!

  12. Let's keep said at 10:39 am on March 20th, 2019:

    the ranting at a solid 9 today. I’m loving the early returns. Time for my second cup of coffee.

  13. She was said at 10:59 am on March 20th, 2019:

    Secretary of State, and was actually doing the job a lot, as acting governor, while his highness was off campaigning for president. (Don’t know how she took the insult of never being called by name, by him- his big ego couldn’t let him give her any name I D or help, at all! We used to jokingly say: “ hi, “The Lt. Governor” to her, at events!) She would actually have been a great governor, but too many NJ voters don’t think or reason very well, and vote emotionally. They, (many independents who had gotten Christie in,) thought they were voting against him in retribution, by voting against Kim. Dumb, but true: how do you punish somebody already term- limited and leaving?? It is sad and, as usual, the few hard- working taxpayers left here, get to pay dearly, for the stupid electoral mistakes of the uninformed. May never come back from this guy. For a state quite restrictive in gun laws, we sure do a good job of shooting ourselves in the taxpaying foot, on an ongoing basis.

  14. Troll, troll, troll. said at 11:03 am on March 20th, 2019:

    Once again mocking everyone with an opinion, and offering nothing but childish sarcasm. Go for a run or to work, (if you do,) and let people express their first amendment thoughts: or finally offer up something productive, if you can….

  15. I'm off said at 12:41 pm on March 20th, 2019:

    today, actually. Are you gainfully employed? If so, get back to work, ya lazy bum!

  16. Hahaha. said at 2:24 pm on March 20th, 2019:

    Great. Happily retired after 35 year meaningful and great career, thanks. All the more reason for all to be concerned about the tax- and- spend idiots who keep getting elected in NJ, for the sake of kids and grandkids who stay here!

  17. If you're said at 6:15 pm on March 20th, 2019:

    happily retired, why do you comment on here incessantly, watch Tucker Carlson at all hours of the night, and go down qanon rabbit holes on 4chan? There is a great massage place in Jupiter that may help lower your blood pressure and get rid of your anger issues so you can enjoy more time with the grandkids. Mr. Kraft might even give you a referral!

  18. Because it said at 2:16 pm on March 21st, 2019:

    obviously raises yours! Keep trolling, though, and continue to show your intolerance and ignorance, and make our points more valid. Have a great day.

  19. Well said at 4:13 pm on March 21st, 2019:

    as you have shown time and time again, reading and comprehension is not one of your stronger areas. Glad to hear of your departure from the workforce. Wasn’t aware that Marshalls offered retirement plans for Associates. Good for you Tiger! Just to be clear, you don’t make “valid points” you parrot talking points that you see or hear (again reading is roughhhhhhh on ya) from a variety of entities that masquerade as legitimate news outlets. It is a hell of an opiate for you though, enjoy the high.

  20. Patricia C Vig said at 2:41 am on March 22nd, 2019:

    I am so not happy about this as all

  21. Thanks said at 12:20 pm on March 22nd, 2019:

    for once again proving your smug elitism against anyone else. Now you slam people who have worked at Marshall’s? What, a career at Walmart is something to defame, too? That’s sad. I’ll take my “talking points” over yours any day, and would hold up my readings over many years to yours,any day, too. Looking forward to your next kicks in the head to those who may disagree with you. Consider some anti-depressant meds or maybe a vacation in the sun to cheer up, pal.

  22. But said at 6:14 pm on March 22nd, 2019:

    they’re not “your” talking points, are they? You regurgitate other people’s ideas lock, stock, and barrel. Lazy, low-hanging fruit to boot. If working as an Associate at either Walmart or Marshalls (there is no apostrophe bud) is what you consider to be upper echelon employment in this country, then shit, all I can say is I hope your offspring aren’t as mentally deficient as you so obviously are. Look around at the comments here in accord with your viewpoint, it’s a like a boozy meeting of the minds on a Friday night in the social hall of Bayshore Mobile Manor.

    Take your silly feud outside, boys.
    No one cares.


    That said, back to the issue at hand;
    Phil Murphy’s SANCTUARY STATE.

    It’s a clear PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE
    (along with numerous other untenable
    problems caused for municipalities) and cannot be UNILATERALLY IMPOSED
    his cronies.

    As citizens, we have the right
    to CHALLENGE any such actions or
    violations by OUR GOVERNOR that may
    cause hardship or dangerous conditions to
    arise within our communities; actions that
    Murphy has taken without the legally voiced consent of NJ’s Citizenry, or any form of a
    citizen’s referendum vote by ballot or otherwise.

    This a dangerous situation for NJ, and
    the public needs to seriously consider
    a court of law as the first, most obvious
    choice to pursue a challenge.

    A CLASS ACTION style LAWSUIT is in order.

    Murphy may yet be a one-term Gov, but
    he’s causing enough damage RIGHT NOW
    to truly sink whatever is left of
    The Once-Great State of New Jersey.

    That’s not ok. Not ok at all.

    could YOU please tell ME why no one CARES?
