New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has announced the allocation of millions of dollars to cover the legal costs of illegal immigrants facing deportation.

TheBlaze's Aaron Colen has more:
 

According to Fox News, the Democratic governor’s announcement was met with condemnation from some Republicans, such as Assemblyman John DiMaio.

“The spending choices of this administration are indefensible and irresponsible,” DiMaio told Fox News in an email.

...

According to the budget, two legal organizations will each get $925,000, and two universities will each get $125,000.

The larger payments will go to Legal Services of New Jersey, a nonprofit that aids low-income residents, and the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker, immigrant-rights organization. The smaller payments will go to the law schools of Rutgers University and Seton Hall University.


The liberal organization estimates roughly 1,200 illegal immigrants are currently awaiting deportation in New Jersey. 

Pew Research Center puts the number of illegal immigrants in the Garden State at around 500,000.
