Trenton NJ, Today, Governor Murphy signed an Executive Order attacking the Second Amendment. NJGOP Chairman released the following statement in response:
“Like most sensible New Jerseyans, the NJGOP also supports common sense gun laws, but once again Governor Murphy shows his inability to take aim at gun crime and instead continues his practice of targeting legal gun owners.
“Today’s Executive Order is big on bravado and short on substance. It creates the same false sense of security that the rest of his political pandering creates.
“On behalf of the NJGOP, I call on Governor Murphy to do something meaningful to combat gun crime and stop criminalizing gun owners, manufacturers and retailers.”
Mahwah NJ, Frank T. Pallotta, candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District, released the following statement in response to the report that Governor Phil Murphy’s tuition assistance program awarded $3.8 million in college aid to immigrants that were brought here illegally:
“At a time when our own citizens — including our veterans — are sick, struggling with crippling student loans, and sleeping in the streets, why are we looking to provide free healthcare, tuition, and housing to unauthorized immigrants? Josh Gottheimer fails to call out and stand up to members of his own party even as they push policies that will lead our country into fiscal ruin and harm our citizens.”

“The problem is not cars getting stolen from Starbucks because keys left in car running. Nor is it stupid people living with us. The concern to all of us is, and should be, that there are swarms of professional thieves being dropped off in our historically safe quite neighborhoods. THAT has not been going on my entire life. As for the police, they did respond quickly and they did watch the neighborhood the nights after to see if they came back for stuff they had dropped in haste running away. I also know that because they stopped a car dropping off my child returning home late one evening shortly after one of the incident to check the person driving. I find it quite misplaced to direct blame or criticism towards the Police when this is occurring all over the county and in fact I know it has been going on in similarly nice areas in the Princeton area as well.”
Trenton NJ, Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and Dave Wolfe of the 10th Legislative District are speaking out against Governor Murphy’s directive forcing jails in the state to reduce their cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

We shouldn’t allow the Governor to create a sanctuary for criminals in our state.”
