Immigrant Advocates Rally at Capitol for NY For All Act

All New Yorkers, regardless of their immigration status, want to lead open lives, participating in everyday activities, without the fear that local police or state agencies will turn them over to ICE for deportation. On April 25th. The New York For all Coalition rallied at the Capitol in support of the New York For All Act, which prohibits local law enforcement and state agencies from working with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrols. We hear from Cassie Bocanegra, of the NY Immigration Coalition; the main bill sponsors Assemblymember Karines Reyes; Senator Andrew Gounardes; Richard, a Nigerian with the Immigrant Defense Project; Luis Jiminez with Alianza Agricola; and Rosie Wang of the Vera Institute of Justice
