When former Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy takes office as New Jersey’s next governor, he plans to establish a state agency geared toward aiding undocumented immigrants, the Washington Post reported.
Murphy, a Democrat who held the ambassador post under President Barack Obama after several years as a Goldman Sachs executive, said the agency would be called the Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection.
Murphy previously vowed to make New Jersey a sanctuary state if President Donald Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“DREAMers… are every bit as American as my four kids,” he said at a debate with outgoing Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R) in Newark.
“We will stand up to this president. If need be, we will be a sanctuary not just city but state. This is America… Mr. President, not in the state of New Jersey,” he said at the time.
