Jamaal Bowman, Ed.D. (NY-16) and Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (NYS-AD90-Yonkers). “People still need assistance applying for various relief programs, help with getting updates on their small business loans or immigration applications and in some cases need a little extra help finding a job or emergency housing. We are here to make sure every person in our communities feels supported and receives the attention they need for their most pressing issues.”
“Combining Assembly and Congressional staff in this effort enhances our ability to help neighbors who need help navigating State and Federal agencies and programs,” said Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (D-Yonkers). “This service to residents is a major part of what my Assembly Office does every day and we are always ready to help.”
Karin Anderson Ponzer, Director of Neighbors Link Community Law Practice said, “It is often incredibly difficult for people to navigate the complex bureaucratic immigration system of the federal government. At Neighbors Link we know the painful and complicated processes that immigrants must face when working with federal agencies and are thrilled to be partnering with NYS Assemblyman Sayegh to ensure that Yonkers residents have support in accessing critical immigration legal services in their community.”
