Sussex County NJ Votes 'Yes' on ICE Cooperation

Thu, Nov 7th 2019 @ 9:51 am EST

Sussex County voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly responded yes to a ballot question that asked whether the county should assist federal immigration officials.

The proposal passed 22,081 to 10,982, according to unofficial results posted on the county website. The vote, freeholders said, gives them the green light to back Sheriff Michael Strada if he is challenged in court for not abiding by the Immigrant Trust Directive, which went into effect in March and was issued by state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. The directive limits the type of voluntary assistance local, county, and state law enforcement may provide to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“We already knew what the results would be based on conversations we had with residents, and we wanted the state to understand that people feel strongly about this,'' Josh Hertzberg, a Sussex County freeholder, and former border patrol agent said Tuesday night after receiving the results.
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
