Today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo denounced the most recent Trump Administration deportation plans in a statement.

"Once again, the Trump Administration is reportedly gearing up to send ICE agents into our cities with plans to deport 1 million people. This is the latest example of this administration's politicization of immigration in this country and constant assault on the civil rights and dignity of individuals and families.

"New York will continue to stand with all immigrants to ensure they have the full protections afforded under the law.

"If any New Yorker, regardless of their immigration status, needs legal assistance, we urge them to make full use of the Liberty Defense Project, our state's public-private project to assist immigrants with free access to legal services and process.

"If you or someone you know requires legal assistance, call the Liberty Defense Project hotline at 1-800-566-7636. Service is provided in over 200 languages and all call information is kept confidential."
