Consistent with their long-standing position on illegal immigration, Senator Christopher J. Connors, Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove sharply criticized the New Jersey Legislature for passing legislation (S-699) to provide illegal aliens with taxpayer-funded tuition assistance.

The 9th District legislators voted against the tuition assistance bill as well as the legislative resolution (SCR-55) which opposes a question on the 2020 census form that would ask whether a person is a citizen.

Connors, Rumpf and Gove made the following remarks:

“Apparently, the rule of law no longer has the meaning it once did. Legal, taxpaying citizens are being disenfranchised by their very own government as special treatment is given to persons who are in our country illegally for purely political purposes.

“Notwithstanding the fact that this rewards people for breaking the law, New Jersey doesn’t have the resources to provide these benefits to illegal aliens. Making New Jersey essentially a sanctuary state will only attract more illegal aliens here for the benefits, placing an even greater strain on already limited public resources.

“Also, how can the state provide tuition assistance for illegal aliens, as well as legal assistance to persons facing deportation, when it can’t make the full payment to the State pension system or fully fund the State school funding formula?

“Voting against these pro-illegal immigration bills is in line with the views conveyed to us by a large number of irate constituents. These are people who pay their taxes, don’t break the law, and aren’t looking for special treatment. They do, however, expect their government to uphold its constitutional obligations, which includes enforcement of immigration laws.”
