Governor Murphy Announces New Measures to Advance Immigrant and Refugee Integration

On Independence Day, Governor Murphy Announces New Measures to Advance Immigrant and Refugee Integration

In response to Governor Murphy’s announcement of two new initiatives to welcome immigrants and refugees, Johanna Calle, director of NJ Alliance of Immigrant Justice released the following statement,

“With these types of initiatives which welcome refugees and immigrants, the governor is showing the power of states to stand up to Trump’s racist anti-immigrant policies. As Trump renews his efforts to cause fear and panic for immigrant families and children, New Jersey policymakers can lead by implementing inclusive policies that protect immigrant families from Trump raids and ICE deportation. We look forward to supporting these efforts to ensure that the voices and experiences of immigrant and refugee communities are at the forefront of the implementation of these programs.”
