Resident asks Township Committee to ensure LPD doesn’t act on Trump’s immigration plan

A Lakewood resident is hoping Trump’s immigration plan doesn’t have an affect on Lakewood.

During the recent Township Committee meeting, the resident told the Committee that she was afraid about a proposed section of the soon-to-be-updated immigration reform order which would allow police departments across the state to act as agents of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

The resident wanted the Committee to enforce a policy which would not allow Lakewood Police Officers to arrest and deport immigrants.

  1. So I guess that person would rather have us lose all federal funding as well as letting CRIMINALS walk the streets of Lakewood because that’s seems to me what president trump is having ice focus on…

  2. So let me get this straight…. An illegal immigrant is asking the police department not to enforce the laws they are constitutionally bound to uphold so that people who don’t pay taxes can take legal citizens dollars and push the township further into debt???

    • Hope you guys like cutting your own lawns, careing for your own children and build your own homes. Like it or not, the illegals are too important for this country to be so cavalier

  3. All Trump is saying Keep the law ,LOL
    Im wondering what other laws this fellow doesnt want us to keep or is just the ones he doesnt like

  4. Huh? why should lakewood be any different? what type of asinine request is that? allow us to keep the illegals and that will attract more….
    LPD-please follow the LAW.

  5. I think you all sound quite mean and inconsiderate. Even if someone is here illegally, there’s still a human being who requires human sympathy and understanding.

    If the government until now looked away from this situation, (didn’t strictly enforce the law) then it is the responsibility of the government to come up with humane solutions to the problem they created.

  6. nobody is being mean or inconsiderate, and nobody questioned their status as a human being. If you come this country ILLEGALLY then you take responsibility for your own actions. end of story.it’s not the governments problem to find a solution for these people – no matter how wonderful they are. If they want to join the USA and become a citizen with all the responsibilities that come with it then come legally through the front door. if you break the law you’re a criminal

  7. I don’t understand why people have an issue with this law. The people complaining are people who broke the law. Of course they are human beings, but if they want to stay then come legally. As far as workers are concerned, yes they may be good workers, but others will take their place.

  8. Glad to read the mostly smart and sensible comments about this article. It proves that the majority are sensible and support what Trump is trying to do.
