NJ Congressman Van Drew Condemns Gov. Murphy For deploying Troops
United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, NJ-R-2 has publicly condemned New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy for announcing that he will deploy 100 New Jersey National Guard troops to our nation’s Capitol in Washington, D.C.
America’s version of a trucking protest, known as “The People’s Convoy” is presently en route to our nation’s Capitol. They are set to arrive in a few days, right after President Joe Biden’s State of The Union Address.
This has received very little media attention in light of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
"Governor Murphy's decision to deploy more than 100 troops to our nation's capital because truck drivers are choosing to exercise their First Amendment rights is outright hypocrisy," said Van Drew.
"Where were Democrats in the summer of 2020 when ANTIFA burnt down cities and destroyed small businesses across America? They were calling for the defunding of police and refusing to condemn these acts of violence,” continued Van Drew.
“Now, with truck drivers vocalizing that they want to continue their livelihoods without being forced by the government's hand to receive a vaccine, Governor Murphy thinks it's appropriate to deploy New Jersey's National Guard,” said Van Drew.
Van Drew bluntly stated that because there is now a challenge to Biden’s vaccine mandates, “Democrats treat them as a threat," said Van Drew.
Van Drew closed by criticizing Murphy for sending state assets to Washington, D.C. saying that “Governor Murphy should be focused on the citizens of New Jersey rather than wasting our national guard's time on truckers exercising their constitutional right to protest,” said Van Drew.
