DeGise pulls out of ICE deal

By David Wildstein, September 06 2018 4:05 pm

Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise will begin a process to end the county’s deal with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by 2020.

The move helps bring Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla back into the party fold and leaves Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop completely isolated within the Hudson County Democrats amidst DeGise’s move to take the issue off the table.

“Just a month ago, I did not see a path that would allow us to move forward on a path to exit,” DeGise said.  “I’m pleased that after what I have heard from state and federal leaders, I believe we have a consensus on how Hudson County can exit the contract in a responsible matter.”
