Standing strong on illegal immigration
In January, President Trump issued an executive order that cut-off funding to so-called "sanctuary cities" that harbor those who are illegally in the United States, regardless of whether or not they have criminal backgrounds. Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space backed up President Trump with state legislation (S2945/ A1707) that prohibits cities and towns in New Jersey from passing ordinances that create sanctuaries for illegals, many of whom have criminal histories. It also makes it an ethics violation for taxpayer-funded state and local employees to refuse to comply with a federal immigration enforcement request.
Leaders in defending the Second Amendment
Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space are the strongest Second Amendment advocates in the Legislature. They have A-rated voting records with the NRA (National Rifle Association) and have been endorsed by the NRA Political Victory Fund, the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC PAC), Gun Owners of America (GOA), and the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance (NJOA). They are currently negotiating bi-partisan legislation to reform the pistol permit purchasing system to eliminate redundant waiting periods and fees on lawful gun owners.
Protecting children, defending Life
Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space proposed New Jersey's Human Trafficking & Child Exploitation Prevention Act -- a nationwide, bipartisan effort to cut-off the grooming and trafficking of children into prostitution through commercial, for-profit pornography. Steve and Parker are leading sponsors of legislation to address the scientific fact that unborn babies are pain-sensitive at 20 weeks. Every other country on earth recognizes this fact except North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada, and the Netherlands. Similar legislation has been passed in 14 states and 2017 has been designated as the year of the big push to bring our laws into line with the rest of the civilized world.
