Sanctuary State New Jersey Creates $60M ‘Slush Fund’ for Illegal Aliens

John Binder, Breitbart, July 7, 2022

The sanctuary state of New Jersey has created a $60 million “slush fund” for about 100,000 illegal aliens, Republicans say.

The plan is part of a budget deal by Gov. Phil Murphy (D) where illegal aliens in New Jersey are expected to receive taxpayer-funded stimulus checks, New Jersey 101.5 reports:

Language added to the budget allows Murphy to allocate $300 million from the state’s share of federal COVID recovery funds without needing the Legislature’s agreement through a vote of the Joint Budget Oversight Committee, or JBOC. [Emphasis added]

Those allocations can’t be larger than $20 million without JBOC approval – except for one $60 million allocation. That happens to be large enough to cover the $53 million fund Murphy proposed in March to pay $500 each to over 100,000 immigrants with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number {snip} [Emphasis added]
