Sheriff Nolan, Freeholders Thornton and Hayes Ask Testa, Jr. to Aid Legal Fight Against Murphy

10-9 SPONSORED POLITICAL Testa for Senate 2.JPG

By Sponsored

At the behest of Freeholder Gerry Thornton, Freeholder Marie Hayes, and Cape May County GOP Chairman Marcus Karavan, Cumberland County Attorney Michael Testa, Jr. has agreed to gratuitously help Cape May County contest Gov. Murphy’s “sanctuary state” directive, and to maintain the 287(g) agreement that the county currently has with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“The Murphy administration’s attack on our county threatens the safety of our residents, and seeks to compel us to disobey federal law,” stated Director Thornton. “As duly elected officials in Cape May County, we took an oath to uphold the U.S. and N.J. Constitutions. We will not allow Gov. Murphy and Attorney General Grewal to bully us into becoming a sanctuary county, not now, not ever.”
Testa will aid Freeholder Thornton in litigation filed by Monmouth and Ocean counties, that are currently contesting the draconian “immigrant trust” directive on the grounds that it violates federal and state constitutional law.
Chairman Karavan commented, “Unfortunately, our Cape May County freeholders and sheriff have received little by way of actual support from the sitting senator, Bob Andrzejczak. While claiming to be an independent thinker the appointed senator votes with Gov. Murphy 95% of the time, including voting to cut our school aid while giving college tuition aid to illegal immigrants. Moreover, this is the same governor who cuts veterans’ benefits, but created a legal defense fund for illegal immigrants. Strong, immediate action is needed to prevent this injustice from taking root in Cape May County.”
“The laws, the facts, and public opinion are on our side, even if our current Democrat state legislators are not,” Testa, Jr. stated. “Gov. Murphy and Trenton Democrats are not only dead wrong on this policy – but their actions are illegal and unconstitutional. It violates the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause and the N.J. Constitution’s home rule doctrine. I am proud to support Sheriff Nolan and the Cape May County freeholders, and take on this critical fight.”
Recently, the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders passed a resolution in support of Sheriff Bob Nolan and the county’s participation in 287(g) with ICE. Last week, New Jersey Attorney General Grewal ordered the counties to stand down, barring state, county, and local law enforcement from cooperating with ICE.
“Cape May County families want no part of Gov. Murphy’s sanctuary state,” Hayes stated. “For nearly 29 years, I worked in law enforcement to save innocent children from assault and rape. Now, the governor is allowing these monsters to be released from jail before ICE can detain them. They are putting their own twisted political ideology over the safety, and we are not going to let it stand.”
Paid for by Testa for Senate, 424 W. Landis Avenue, Vineland, NJ 08360.
