NJ Gov Phil MurphyThe head of a pro-immigration enforcement group doubts that taxpayers in New Jersey support a new agency whose sole purpose is helping illegal aliens.

"I find it hard to believe," observes Mark Krikorian, of the Center for Immigration Studies, "that state tax money should be spent to keep illegal immigrants in the United States, because that's what this is about."

Krikorian is reacting to Democrat Phil Murphy (pictured above), New Jersey's new  governor, who is vowing to create the Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection.

Murphy, a former ambassador under President Barack Obama, has already vowed to make New Jersey a so-called "sanctuary state" to fight the Trump administration.

The goal of this agency, says Krikorian, is to keep illegal aliens from being deported to their home countries.

"And whatever it was people voted for in New Jersey, in November," he says, "this wasn't it."

The new agency deserves a legal challenge, Krikorian tells OneNewsNow.

"Because it's not clear," he says, "if the federal statute which says 'no cost to the government' means only the federal government or also applies to lower levels of government."
