Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced two new measures to assist and protect immigrants targeted by ICE and the federal government's anti-immigrant policies in their communities. Governor Cuomo's first-in-the-nation Liberty Defense Project has selected regional providers and attorneys for a Rapid Response Program to better respond to unanticipated ICE enforcement actions, targeted raids and sweeps statewide. Additionally, Governor Cuomo's Office for New Americans has selected 21 new Opportunity Centers across the state to deliver essential services, education and guidance to immigrants in their own neighborhoods - including the Southern Tier for the first time.
