New York City – Feb. 2, 2017 – NMIC proudly stands with our clients, staff and neighbors in denouncing any attempt to demonize and discriminate against immigrants based on their religion, ethnicity or country of origin. America is nothing if not a nation of immigrants built upon the ideals that diversity and religious freedom make us stronger as a country, not weaker. We are prepared to work with any and all elected officials and partner organizations to ensure that New York City and our nation remain just, diverse and welcoming for immigrants of all racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
We will take concrete action to protect our community, starting with forums during which community members can hear from our legal team to gain clarity about existing laws and executive orders that may affect them. We are also proud to be part of the ActionNYC initiative and community members can call 311 at any time to make an appointment with an ActionNYC center to address their individual needs.
