This is a question of New Jersey law, about which I make no claims of knowledge.

Speaking generally, you would have a right to evict him under two circumstances. First, you could evict him if the lease stated that any misrepresentation on the application would be a breach of the lease. Second, you could evict him if the misrepresentation somehow caused you damage.

Consult New Jersey counsel.
