Monsy Alvarado and Susan Loyer Staff Writers Published 10:44 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 More than 100 people rallied in locations across New Jersey on Thursday to protest a new "zero tolerance" policy of immigration enforcement that has led to the separation of children from parents caught illegally crossing the southern border, nearly 2,000 miles away. About 50 marchers gathered at the Rutherford Congregational Church at noon, armed with signs that read "Don't Separate Families" and "Children belong with their Families." Then they walked nearly 2 miles to the Rutherford train station chanting, "Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcomed here."

Former Gov. Chris Christie has opened a law firm. Kevin B. Sanders for Observer Former Gov. Chris Christie made no secret of his desire to earn serious money once he left office, and now the former U.S. attorney has opened his own law firm in Morris County, according to The Record.While it’s not clear what type of law Christie is practicing, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani—now a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team—told the newspaper he has referred two clients to the former governor.

Steph Solis NorthJersey Published 8:25 p.m. UTC Jun 8, 2018 When Cloyd Edralin was hired full-time as a machinist in late May, he considered the move a minor victory in his fight against methamphetamine addiction, which he developed after his father died in 2005. It was the latest of several milestones for Edralin, a Filipino-born father of four. He was staying sober, volunteering at hospitals that treat drug addiction and spending more time with his wife and four children, ages 11 to 22, said his wife, Brandi Davison-Edralin. The new job meant he could help support his family in their modest Highland Park home, she said. Edralin, 47, who has lived legally in the United States for three decades, was leaving his house to go to work on Monday morning when he was stopped by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. They told Edralin, a green card holder, that he was being detained over an 11-year-old firearms conviction, ICE officials confirmed Thursday.
