NY For All Act Rally To Protect Immigrants

On Tuesday, May 14 the New York For All coalition held a rally at the Capitol to call for the passage of the New York For All Act. All New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, want to lead open lives without intimidation. The New York for All Act offers protections that help make this possible by prohibiting all local law enforcement and state agencies from working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). We hear from several speakers, starting with Robert Agyemang, Vice President of Advocacy for the NY Immigration Coalition, who served as moderator. Other speakers were Marcos Martinez, Alianza Agrícola; Rebecca Lamorte, Greater New York LECET union; Rosie Wang, Vera Institute of Justice; Rosa Cohen-Cruz, Bronx Defenders. With Mark Dunlea for the Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
