Governor Murphy’s Statement on Potential ICE Raids in New Jersey

Governor Phil Murphy issued the following statement on Thursday evening:

In anticipation of the Trump Administration’s threatened ICE raids, we are proactively reaching out to our immigrant communities to make sure they know we stand with them and are prepared to do whatever we can to protect them.

 “Let’s be clear: The Trump Administration’s fear-mongering is un-American and dangerous. These raids do not make us safer; they will only make the work of local law enforcement more challenging and increase fears in our hardworking immigrant communities.

 “Any family who needs legal representation should know there are many pro bono legal services available to them. We will be doing everything we can to highlight these resources and to make sure our immigrant communities know their rights and feel at home.”

    our brilliant fellow voters thought they’d be smart to reject the nonsense of Chris Christie, by rejecting his LG, Kim Guadagno: ( who actually, would be a great governor.) in doing so, they indicated it was fine with them to plop in a rich novice, who PLEDGED that he’d raise taxes and rule as an elitist liberal, and wow, surprise, he has! California East, that’s us, only smaller.. Seriously, NJ, how many times can you get hit in the head, before you say OUCH?!

    So he is giving assistance to those here illegally. Aiding and abetting is a crime, why is he not arrested?
