More Musing Needed in Monmouth as GOP Freeholders Table Anti-Sanctuary State Resolution

MONMOUTH REPUBLICANS NOT READY TO OPPOSE MURPHY/GREWAL SANCTUARY STATE

FREEHOLD-Monmouth County’s all-Republican Freeholder board has tabled a resolution opposing Governor Phil Murphy’s decree of New Jersey being a sanctuary state.   There will be more musing amongst the Monmouth County Freeholders as they rewrite the resolution for future adoption.

“Our Board prides itself on making well-informed decisions on behalf of our residents and wants further information before acting on this matter,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone. “It is also important to note that my fellow Freeholders and I are not categorizing the documented, lawful group of citizens with illegal immigrants.”

Arnone, apparently cautious of angering the growing Latin American population in his county chose his words carefully ahead of an important election cycle where Freeholders are vulnerable to the blue wave that has been sweeping across the county since the party was taken over by Sheriff Shawn Golden.

“We understand that Monmouth County is a melting pot of individuals who have contributed immensely to the County’s economic development,” said Freeholder Director Arnone. “The Board of Chosen Freeholders has always offered unconditional support to all 53 municipalities, businesses and most importantly, the documented residents who have called Monmouth County their home for decades.”
