Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf, and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove all highlighted the absurdity of sanctuary state policies that resulted in the release from custody of Luciano Trejo-Dominguez, who is in the country illegally and has been charged with raping a teen under the age of 16.

Recent media reports have covered how Trejo-Dominguez and two other illegal aliens suspected of violent crimes are currently being sought by federal immigration authorities following their release by jails in New Jersey.

Connors, Rumpf, and Gove, who continue to lead the fight against allowing New Jersey to be established as a sanctuary state, made the following remarks:

“The politics of open borders and establishing ‘sanctuary’ for those who break our laws continue to tie the hands of law enforcement officials to the detriment of public safety while at the same time undermining the rule of law, which is still cherished by many Americans.

“Regardless of the violent crimes these individuals are suspected of, they should not have been in the country in the first place. When are sanctuary state supporters going to wake up to the reality and severity of the situation and start respecting the rights of legal citizens?

“We can’t imagine the frustration of law enforcement officials who, while putting their lives to protect us from dangerous persons, are being hindered in carrying out their very serious responsibilities by a bumbling bureaucracy that is failing us all.

“This latest episode has further cemented our delegation’s vehement opposition to sanctuary state policies, which includes giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.”
