BREAKING: NJGOP and President Trump Rejecting Murphy’s Anti-Law Enforcement Laws 

Trenton, NJ – The DOJ has filed a federal complaint against the State of New Jersey seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against Governor Murphy’s Sanctuary State policies.

According to the DOJ, New Jersey Attorney General Law Enforcement Directive 2018-6 illegally bars officials from sharing the immigration status and release dates of individuals in custody and forbids state and local law enforcement from sharing vital information about criminal aliens.

“Law Enforcement officials in New Jersey put their lives on the line every day to keep our families safe,” said Chairman Steinhardt. “We are proud to stand with President Trump in support of New Jersey’s Law Enforcement community. Phil Murphy may be willing to pay for his progressive platitudes with the health, safety and welfare of New Jersey citizens, but the NJGOP is not. We will continue to rally against the Governor’s reckless Sanctuary State policy.”

Just last week, ICE officials arrested over 100 foreign nationals across New Jersey. Of those taken into custody, 84 percent had prior criminal convictions or charges including homicide, assault and various drug and weapons offenses.
