Bhimani, Draeger Silent On Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants

Candidate Brian Bergen and Assemblyman Anthony Bucco

BOONTON — The Bucco and Bergen for Assembly campaign released the following statement regarding Lisa Bhimani and Darcy Draeger’s continued silence on Governor Murphy’s policies with regard to illegal immigration:

“First, it was millions in taxpayer dollars to provide legal aid for illegal immigrants. Then Phil Murphy handcuffed law enforcement by declaring New Jersey a sanctuary state, a move supported by Lisa Bhimani. Now, he wants to spend even more taxpayer dollars on illegal immigrants by offering them driver’s licenses, a move that angered even Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin,” said Bucco and Bergen campaign manager Rob Costello. “As property taxes soar and school funding is gutted, 25th district taxpayers deserve to know whether Lisa Bhimani and Darcy Draeger support Governor Murphy when it comes to endless taxpayer-funded handouts to illegal immigrants.”
