This is a perfect example of what happens when people quote numbers and facts without understanding them or their context. Something of which you are quite an expert!

The Kearny jail has an unusually large percentage of non-citizens, but that is because the county has a contract with the federal government to house ICA detainees in that jail. A more informed opinion would be to understand how many of the Kearny jail prisoners are there because of crimes committed locally and are not there as part of the ICE contract. Of course, that would take time, effort, and intellectual honesty. Much easier to spout numbers without logic or reasoning.


What you seem to fail to understand is that those locked up are criminals. As is the person who killed the jogger!


LOL WUT!? Kindly point out where have I ever said such a thing? I am stridently against illegal immigration. That doesn't negate expecting intellectual honesty in a conversation in which facts and numbers are being thrown around.

The problem with Yvonne's post (and previous statements on this subject, and others) is that she likes to confuse things by throwing out numbers without context, to try and bolster her argument or opinion. Her post was clearly meant to convey two ideas: that most criminals are illegal immigrants (not true) and that the illegal immigrant population in JC (and this area) is much larger than most people think or assume.



What I was stating in my post was that while the method in which these prisoners are being held in the Kearny jail doesn't change the fact they are criminals and illegal.

He's basically advocating for higher tolls by the Port Aurthoity so it can be invested in PATH and other transHudson transit improvements.

Also, I didn't read that NYC residents would be exempt from the congestion pricing scheme, but assuming that is the case, why is that unacceptable but a payroll tax on Jersey City businesses that employ out of towners, with the revenue being used to fund our bloated and shitty school board, is somehow okay?

I'm a big transit/bike/pedestrian supporter but congestion pricing should be for exactly that -- reducing congestion-- not as a retaliatory tool to punish NY commuters into JC. The unintended consequences include businesses getting fed up with thr extra taxes and leaving, taking with them their precious income taxes they generate. Maybe if we make this city shitty enough, that will solve our congestion problems because everyone will have had enough bullshit and move away to Florida.


I think Murphy is taking care of your last point - the state is quickly becoming a sh!thole with never-ending high taxes and bowing to public unions - people ARE leaving the state in droves.

So basically the city wont even attempt to prohibit smoking in public places. I guess their contention that people of color who have been disproportionately arrested are not smoking peacefully at home after all.

A car should be waiting for pedestrians crossing. A no turn on red doesnt really help. What it does is allow a minimum number of cars through each light cycle. This causes cars to be backed up idling gas fumes into the air. Allowing cars to turn on red keeps thing moving.

Maybe Murphy can ask for Rosie's release when he is asking Trump for Gateway money. Although he might not be aware of her situation as it wont be reported on CNN.

He made his point in his post. Minimum wage laws were originally introduced to keep "undesirables" out the work place. Not just blacks, but other minorities and women.

Same principles at play today, even if not the intention of the policy.



Funny, it seems the very people you are referring to are pushing hard for the minimum wage increase. But I'm sure you guys know what's better for them.

If you go back historically and increase for inflation when we get to $15 an hr it will be about a 50% increase over traditional minimum wage. The issue here is that too many living wage jobs have left the state and country. The dems feel that a suitable replacement is a low skilled minimum wage job that they can force the employer to over pay for. Murphy is in way over his head he has no idea what the ramifications of this will be. It has been a failure in Seattle but it doesnt matter they are all on the bandwagon. Just like Pelosi when she said we have to pass Obamacare so that we can see whats in it.

This is really a slick move to increase tax collected by the state. Hopefully it wont put too many places out of business or cause too many to decrease staff.

If I had a Mustang I would certainly at least try. I award you -1 point for reading comprehension.


Actually you should re read what I wrote. I never stated you owned a Mustang. I said "try". So I'll take the point back from you.

She sounds ridiculous, though, when she invokes anger at Kavanaugh and Tump.

Not really. More to the point is people like you trying to make it about race. The bar simply feels that people who dress a certian way act a certian way and they dont want that aggravation

I'll take it by your response that you believe each has many priors and should not be out on the street.


No, nothing having to do with your thoughts or my opinions on the criminal justice system. Just the fact that anyone in this country could actually believe a President, let alone the current one, could effectively change anything to do with their current life/local neighborhood.


The point is while the liberal Democrats rant and rave about Trump, the Wall, (fill-in the blank with why you hate Trump), etc., the REAL problems like this are not being solved by the Democrats - but hey, let's all brag how we have the strictest gun laws in the US - tell me how that's working.


Jersey might have strict guns laws, but this country as a whole has the weakest gun laws of any first world country. I'll let you in on a little secret... we don't have import export regulations between states. Guns cross state lines like water going down a stream from one property to another. No local regulations will ever end gun violence in this country.

Until this country gets Federally mandated gun control, in place for years, we won't see a reduction in gun violence. My guess, unfortunately, that will never happen due to the obstinance of conservatives.


Are you crazy? How would gun laws prevented this? How often do you hear about legal guns being used in shootings here in JC? I'm pretty sure it's already against the law to bring a gun into the Newport Mall. As for interstate gun transport. Check with that guy from PA who was driving through NJ to NY and got stopped at the holland tunnel. I'll bet he might have something to say about how strict NJ is

This is SUCH an old trope used by people trying to make a point by conflating two separate facts to make it look like a valid argument or explanation. But, it is simply NOT TRUE.

Just because someone is not paying a tax to the city directly, it does not mean they are not paying it indirectly. Renters may not pay property and school taxes directly, but they do so indirectly. Also, the claim that immigrants only live in abated buildings is just simply not true. It doesn't even pass the common sense or smell test. In fact, I would argue that the very opposite is true: most illegal immigrants live in old buildings (many of them in illegal boarding houses) and not in abated buildings. Or, do you truly, really believe all illegal immigrants are living in luxury DTJC buildings paying exorbitant rents???


Illegal apartments and overcrowding are factors and burden our public schools.
