New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

NEW YORK, NY — June 22, 2019 — “The Trump Administration’s impending blitz of ICE raids across the country, including here in New York, is shameful and wholly unacceptable, and we will fight back at every turn to protect our immigrant families. As I’ve said before, if there is a move to deport immigrants then I say start with me — a son of immigrants.

“This is the latest example of the federal administration’s ongoing, un-American assault on our immigrant communities, and I am directing the State Liberty Defense Program’s Rapid Response team to be on high alert and immediately assist any family in need of legal services across the state this weekend. I urge anyone in need of assistance to contact the Liberty Defense Team at 1-800-566-7636 or liberty@dos.ny.gov.”

“America’s only threat is from within, and we will not let division and hate win. While President Trump builds walls and separates families, New York will continue to be the beacon of inclusion and diversity that the nation and the world looks to.”
