The Murphy Administration’s directive that New Jersey Police and Corrections Officers thwart and/or refuse to cooperate with the enforcement of federal immigration laws took effect today, according to a NJ.com report.
Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced the sanctuary policies in November:
1. No asking about immigration status, unless it’s relevant to an investigation of a serious crime.
2. No helping with ICE raids.
3. Corrections officers can only hold prisoners for ICE in limited circumstances.
4. Prosecutors can’t discredit witnesses in court based on their immigration status.
5. Law enforcement agencies have to help unauthorized immigrants apply for visas.
6. No more making side deals with ICE to deputize local police as immigration officers.
7. Report every instance where cops helped ICE.
