Testa Blows The Lid Off COVID Positive Prisoner Scandal
NJGOP Comment
.
Senator Michael Testa has released an internal Murphy Administration memorandum detailing plans to release COVID-positive inmates at bus and train stations tomorrow with no warning to the general public.
.
This comes on the heels of an announced Federal Investigation into the Murphy Administration ordering COVID positive patients into long term care facilities, resulting in the death of more than 7100 veterans and vulnerable adults.
.
NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt offered the following comment:
.
“Governor Murphy is killing New Jersey: it’s economy and residents. Now, he’s been caught trying to secretly release COVID positive criminals into your communities. Under a made up, COVID credit program, Murphy is releasing thousands of violent criminals tomorrow, not because they paid their debt to society, showed remorse for their crimes, or even behaved while behind bars, but solely because they were imprisoned during a pandemic. A secret DOC memo made public by Senator Michael Testa makes clear that many of the prisoners Murphy’s letting loose are being released COVID-positive, into close quarter transportation centers like train stations and bus stops. This Governor’s mismanagement is as criminal as the criminals he’s letting out sick onto our streets. If our courts won’t prosecute him, we can’t elect him.  Send the first message today with Republican victories across the state.”
