Governor Murphy, AG Grewal Threaten Sheriffs: Don’t Undermine My Sanctuary State Directive!


TRENTON-Governor Phil Murphy and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal made a clear threat against sheriffs in Cape May and Monmouth Counties who have deputized their officers as agents of ICE.   Grewal said he will be doubling down to make New Jersey a bonafide sanctuary state that will rival the likes of California on August 6, 2019 when he will issue a new directive specifically prohibiting sheriffs from exercising the authority they gave to their officers against Grewal’s directive.

We’re watching!

Grewal said his office will be watching neighboring counties to make sure they don’t go against his sanctuary state order

He added that he was angered that the two counties went against him.
