Statement of Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal on today’s lawsuit filed by the United States challenging the Immigrant Trust Directive
New Jersey Strong news – Trenton, NJ: Office of the Attorney General of NJ reports 2.10.2020.
Once again, the Trump Administration is sacrificing public safety for political expedience. It’s no surprise that the President, facing re-election, has suddenly decided to challenge a policy we first announced in 2018. What’s disappointing is that my former colleagues at the Justice Department have agreed to go along with this election year stunt.Thankfully, nothing about today’s lawsuit changes our work on the ground. While the President grandstands, we’re focused on protecting the nine million residents of New Jersey.
Gurbir S. Grewal, Attorney General
