Exclusive: Attorney General Warns Jackson, Other Towns to Not Close Borders to Orthodox Jews

New Jersey Attorney General Chris Porrino.

TRENTON-Although Jackson Township Attorney Jean Cipriani last night affirmed the existence of an investigation being conducted by the Office of the Attorney General, the state has yet to publicly acknowledge the investigation.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino today said that while his office cannot confirm or deny the investigation, he issued another stern warning to Jackson Township today.

Porrino maintained the position that his office is watching closely and the actions that have occurred against Orthodox Jews in towns like Jackson and Mahwah will not be tolerated.

“We will not confirm or deny the existence of any investigation.  We will only reaffirm what is already a matter of public record — that this office has zero tolerance for towns that seek to close off their borders to families based on their religious beliefs, and is committed to making every effort to put an end to such discriminatory practices wherever they arise,” Porrino told Shore News Network today.
