Says State has Other Needs for the Money that Would Benefit All New Jerseyans

Senator Michael Doherty blasted the Murphy Administration for a program being rolled out today that will give tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer funds to illegal immigrants in the state.

The Excluded New Jerseyans Fund is a $40 million program that will disburse money by the thousands to “undocumented individuals, residents re-entering from the justice system, and any other individuals otherwise excluded” from federal pandemic relief payments, according to a web page operated by the Office of New Americans under the NJ Department of Human Services.

“This is one more glaring example of Murphy’s misplaced priorities,” said Senator Doherty (R-23). “He is increasing taxes this month on struggling small businesses at the same time he is handing out millions to people who broke the law.

“Hard-working residents who haven’t done anything wrong continue to suffer from the lingering impacts of Governor Murphy’s pandemic policies,” Doherty continued. “They lost jobs, they lost businesses, and they lost their savings and investments. Murphy should be using this money to help all New Jerseyans, not handing it out to illegal immigrants who are violating the law.”

Those who qualify will be eligible for $1,000 payments under the new Murphy administration program, and families can receive $2,000.
