NJ Dems Welcome Illegal Aliens with Your Taxpayer Dollars

New Jersey lawmakers seem to be tripping over themselves in an effort to write legislation that alienates and angers New Jersey residents. Hot on the heels of the recently introduced bill to gut New Jersey’s public records act comes a proposed piece of legislation that would open up significant taxpayer resources to illegal immigrants.

A4340, the “New Jersey Migrant and Refugee Assistance Act,” sponsored by Assemblywoman Shanique Speight and Assemblyman Reginald Atkins, and co-sponsored by Assemblywoman Quijano, seeks to “provide tailored resources that facilitate a smoother transition into New Jersey society” for illegal aliens.

The bill seeks to put taxpayer resources to work supporting illegal aliens by, “connecting migrants and refugees with State resources and public assistance programs….crucial for their successful integration and contribution to the State’s social and economic fabric.”

New Jersey lawmakers presumably also have inside information on where illegal immigrants are coming from:

Given the significant influx of migrants from countries such as Haiti and Venezuela, where political turmoil has de-stabilized societies, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where human rights crises persist, there is a heightened need for supportive measures in this State.

The countries listed in the bill are some of the most dangerous on earth, and without proper vetting through legal channels, New Jersey residents cannot be sure that the illegal immigrants from those countries now in our state are not criminals themselves.

The bill will establish a Department of Human Services Migrant and Refugee Resource Coordination Program which will provide illegal immigrants with information on accessing, “housing, healthcare, educational opportunities, job training, and legal services.” There are no such generous programs to help New Jersey homeless, vets or other disadvantaged groups of legal residents that this media outlet is aware of.

Language in the bill would suggest that Democrats have been carefully preparing for this situation and already laid an informal groundwork to push the agenda: “The department shall collaborate with local governments, nonprofit organizations, and community groups to facilitate access to these resources.”

disgusting and unsurprising from Trenton Democrats. Let the native New Jersey people sleep outside the statehouse I guess.
