ACLU-NJ Redoubles Support of Strong Tuition Equality Legislation

December 2, 2013

ACLU-NJ Executive Director Udi Ofer issues the following statement in light of Gov. Chris Christie’s announcement earlier today regarding tuition equality in New Jersey:

"The Governor’s statements today make clear that it’s past time for Governor Christie to come to the table and meet with Dreamers and advocates to ensure the strongest possible tuition equality bill is passed and signed this session. There remain many fundamental principles of agreement, and a few key differences to work through. It is important that New Jersey not make public policy decisions based on exceptions to the rule. We urge the Governor to focus on the immediate needs of New Jersey communities and to resist rejecting a critical policy reform that would help thousands of New Jerseyans based on the remote chance that the New Jersey Dream Act could potentially be misapplied."
