Default New Jersey Governor Wants to Create an Entire Agency to Protect Illegal Immigrants

I thought Christie was bad, but the new governor sounds even worse; instead of calling NJ a sanctuary state, he wants to call it a welcoming state by catering to those who came here illegally.

Quote:
Newly inaugurated New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy plans to establish the Garden State as a bastion of far-left policies, including a first-of-its-kind government agency devoted exclusively to protecting the rights of legal and illegal immigrants alike.

Murphy, a Democrat and former Goldman Sachs financier who was swept into office on the back of former Gov. Chris Christie’s historically low approval ratings, told The Washington Post he plans to operationalize the sentiment behind the “sanctuary” movement by establishing an Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection.

“It would be a place where everybody could call with questions about their status,” Murphy told The Washington Post. “Our guess is it’s going to be legal services-oriented. One remarkable thing, and you probably have seen this, the rumors that swirl around communities are extraordinary, and it’s literally hard to get, particularly if you’re undocumented, the right answer to your question. That’s when people go back into the shadows.”
I abhor the word "undocumented" when referring to those who come here illegally. It is a euphemism that completely ignores their illegal status.

Proving his complete ignorance of economics and unintended consequences, he stated:

Quote:
“This state, under the current leadership, has gotten into the belief that if I give something to you, it comes at my expense,” Murphy said. “That’s a myth. Raising the minimum wage does not take from growth, it adds to growth. Earned sick leave gives workers a lot more confidence and adds to their participation in the economy. Equal pay for equal work isn’t, ‘Here, I’ll give this to you.’ It’s confidence, it’s participation.”

He plans to accomplish all of that while wielding the power of the state to counter President Donald Trump’s agenda.

“We’re going to stand our ground on anything we find unacceptable, and unfortunately that list is long, whether it’s immigration policy, it’s offshore drilling, or it’s an awful tax plan,” Murphy said. “We’re not going to compromise on American values and our Constitution over here just to get a deal over here. That won’t happen.”

Sounds wonderful, I hope 100% of them go there.

I'm OK with calling a child who came here when they were too young to understand what was going on "undocumented".

The same way I wouldn't punish a 3 year old who took something from a store the same way I would punish a 15 year old for taking the same item. (When I was 3 I "bought"/stole a box of cookies. My mother was mortified.) Don't get me wrong though, that doesn't mean they get to keep the cookies when they get caught.

Undocumented is more than a misnomer, it is generally a lie. Many are "documented" as being here in some manner, but are not deported after overstaying their welcome.

My question of the OP is "from what do illegal immigrants need protection?"

The FEDS?

Other Illegals like MS-13?

Legal Americans who don't want them taking jobs, services and draining the treasury?

The waiting list to immigrate to America legally is long and expensive. That may well be a problem. But, how many extra-nationals can we absorb from every nation? And would not we be able to absorb more legally if we were in-undated by illegals?

Why should anyone go through that process if anyone can just stop by,,,; and stay?

Was this the catalyst that started your life of crime? I'm with you, I think we should start bussing all illegal immigrants to NJ.
Maybe it will work out and NJ will become a prosperous and safe state. Maybe they can also clean up the inner city.

Only in NJ can a candidate for Governor promise to raise taxes and give it to illegal aliens get elected.

Oh no...There are about 5 or 6 of them (which is about 10 too many)...
