New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer has released an updated comprehensive 75-page manual on immigrant rights.

The manual is available in 10 languages – including Arabic and Urdu for the first time – and is designed to help immigrant New Yorkers understand their legal protections and access a wide range of services that support foreign-born New Yorkers. The manual outlines resources available to all immigrants in the city, provides detailed guidance on recent local, State, and Federal legislation impacting immigrant communities, and offers information about available legal, health, and educational services.

“New York City couldn’t run without the immense contributions and ingenuity of our immigrant communities. They helped build our city – and they will help propel our city into the future," Stringer said. "But with Washington putting our immigrant neighbors in the crosshairs – attempting to split apart families and upend lives – we need to stand shoulder to shoulder with foreign-born New Yorkers who make our city the global capital of culture and innovation. We need to make sure all immigrant New Yorkers know that we have their back."

Stringer added: “That’s why we’re releasing this manual and offering it in more languages than we ever have. In these times, foreign born New Yorkers must have the tools they need to fight back, so they can make it in our city and help the five boroughs thrive like never before. We all need to be in this together.”

The manual is available in: Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Bengali, Arabic, Urdu, Haitian Creole, Russian, French and English.

The updated manual includes resources and information on: Public benefits; consumer rights; civic participation; healthcare; language access; citizenship; immigration services; and provides detailed information on deportation and detention, permanent residency, executive actions impacting immigration, and more.

Immigrant New Yorkers in need of direct assistance, can always contact the Community Affairs Unit at the Comptroller’s Office at 212-669-3916.
