WPG Listeners Sound-Off: NJ Senate Moves to Reimburse Sanctuary Cities If Federal Funds Cut
WPG listeners have strongly voiced their opinions against a proposal making its way through the state house in Trenton where the state would reimburse sanctuary cities if federal funding is cut.
Senate Democrats are looking to put their money where their mouth is - or at least the state's money - and protect sanctuary cities from potential funding cuts. Proposed legislation, S-3007, now on the fast track would have the state Department of Community Affairs provide grants to any county or municipality that sees its federal funding cut.
