Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on the Trump Administration's New Refugee Cap

TOP Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on the...

"The Trump administration's new record low cap on refugees is an outrageous assault on everything we stand for in this country. By shutting the door on the most vulnerable, the President is taking his anti-immigrant agenda to the next level and effectively pulling the torch down from the Statue of Liberty. 


"In New York, we will continue to serve as a beacon of hope and opportunity for the entire world. We believe that our diversity is our greatest strength, and we are proud to be home to refugees across the state who are breathing new life into their communities as members of the family of New York. While President Trump undermines the values that built this state and this nation, New York will always welcome immigrants and refugees with open arms."
