There is a great hubbub coming out of Trenton about the situation at America’s southern border. People are illegally crossing the border and they are being detained for breaking the law.
Many people, Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Governor Phil Murphy among them, are angry because law enforcement separates family members when they are arrested for breaking the law. Adult males are housed with adult males, adult females with adult females, and minors/children in juvenile facilities.
It is an outrage… except that this is standard operating practice in New Jersey, and pretty much everywhere else.
Hey, in fairness to Huttle and Murphy, the madness is widespread. Senators Booker and Menendez have the madness, as do the rest of their Democrat colleagues. But hold on tight, because Assemblywoman Huttle is on the way to the rescue with Assembly Resolution No. 175. In it, the Assemblywoman makes the claim that the policy of separating those accused of criminal behavior from their children is “sanctioned child abuse” and worse… it causes cancer in children.
ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION No. 175
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
INTRODUCED JUNE 18, 2018
Assemblywoman VALERIE VAINIERI HUTTLE
District 37 (Bergen)
Condemns federal government’s policy of separating immigrant families and contends that federal government’s actions are sanctioned child abuse.
CURRENT VERSION OF TEXT
Whereas, Experts find this policy is detrimental to the health of young children causing short-term developmental delays and long-term health concerns such as heart disease, cancer, and morbid obesity; and
Look out DYFS (now called Child Protective Services) – those lawsuits are coming! The State of New Jersey gave me CANCER when they arrested mom for something illegal and shipped me off to a foster home. I got CANCER and the State Legislature said it was because of what the State did. Here it is… in black and white. They say so.
The docket backlog for lawsuits will be measured in decades. The state will need to double the size of its courts to handle it. And the taxpayers will pay dearly for Assemblywoman Huttle's insanity.
