Immigration Crackdown Affects NJ Towns Across the Board

New Jersey has the fifth-largest immigration court caseload in the nation, according to NJ Spotlight, with 31,000 people from every New Jersey county and more than 90 percent of municipalities have cases pending in immigration court, new data shows.

In New Jersey, people in every county are in immigration court, with the numbers ranging from 57 in the northernmost Sussex County to 4,950 in urban Essex. At least one person in 510 of the state’s municipalities — more than nine of every 10 — have cases pending.

What is your town doing to protect the rights of immigrants or to provide services or guidance?
