Three New Jersey Democrats think they've found a sure-fire way to sidestep President Trump's plan to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities — have NJ taxpayers make up the difference.
New Jersey lawmakers from immigrant-rich Hudson County on Tuesday announced a bill that would provide state aid to sanctuary cities denied federal funds for failing to comply with immigration rules.
The bill was introduced in both houses of the legislature on Tuesday by State Sen. Brian Stack, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji and Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro, all Democrats from the 33rd District.
The legislation, S-3007 in the Senate and A-4590 in the Assembly, would allow municipalities or counties denied federal funds to apply to the state Commissioner of Community Affairs for a "dollar-for-dollar" match to compensate for the withheld federal money.
Let me put this in words you three turkeys can understand.
No. Way. Jose.
The people of Union City and the 33rd District may have voted for you, and you might think your loyalties lie more with illegal aliens and less with your taxpaying constituents, but that's not my problem, it's theirs. And I stand with President Trump in wanting to see equal enforcement of our immigration laws. Which means if anyone should be on the hook for your virtue signalling, it's the people in your District, and not the rest of us.
Then let's see how they feel about your activism when you're raiding their pockets. Because I'm thinking they're not gonna be too pleased.
Fortunately Governor Christie would be insane to sign this bill into law.
So it's all just grandstanding on the part of Hudson County progressives, for
now. But if NJ's voters are dumb enough to put Phil Murphy into the governor's
office next year then throwing tax dollars at illegal aliens will be the
least of our problems.
