NJCU’s Mention in Mayor Fulop’s Ward A “State of the City” Address

And we quote:

“Two of the most important projects in the city are actually happening right here in Ward A. First, We are especially excited for the expansion of New Jersey City University’s campus here in Ward A, which will include new residential housing and retail space. This is one of the largest and most transformative projects in the entire city. This expansion will be located on a 21-acre vacant site here in Ward A. As mentioned before, it will include new residential housing, new student housing, retail including a brand new large supermarket for residents on the south side of the city. A project of this magnitude will have an incredible impact, and will bring new opportunities, jobs and activity to this underutilized area.”(10)

“Bill for the Naturalization of Foreigners”

In these contentious times, it might prove enlightening to go back over two hundred years to see this document as emended by Thomas Jefferson. While it was never enacted in its original form, it shows that such a question was being discussed even before there was a United States; it also shows Jefferson’s leanings that were definitely not in synch with policies emanating now from Washington.
