New NJ budget slips in $60M for checks to unauthorized immigrants

“The Democrats who control the Legislature know that Gov. Murphy’s program giving big cash payments to illegal immigrants is so unpopular with most New Jerseyans that they were afraid to fund it directly in the state budget,” said Senator Jim Holzapfel, R-Ocean. “Instead, they created a slush fund that Gov. Murphy controls that appears to have been designed specifically to continue making these ridiculous payments.”

The budget doesn't directly fund Gov. Phil Murphy's proposed $500 recovery checks, but it includes language carefully crafted to allow it to proceed.

Speaking up for New Jersey's taxpayers who were left out of the Murphy $50B+ budget.

Trenton had a chance to do right by the taxpayers and small businesses who make this state work, but it didn't do that.

A few insiders decided they know how to spend your hard-earned tax money better than you do. They think they know better than you.

We wanted to send your tax overpayments back to you. That's freedom.

I will vote no on the bloated Murphy budget and oppose the unfair and partisan way this budget was put together.

New Jerseyans deserve better.
