Introduction To New York State Immigrant Action

The New York State Immigrant Action 

web site aims to put the power to change our treatment of immigrants directly into your hands.  This site will give you the information and tools you need to make life better for immigrants in our state.

But while our organization may be in its infancy, it mobilizes the talent and knowledge of some of the most experienced immigrant analysts and activists in New York State.

The centerpiece of our new site is our Congressional Report Cards. We will soon have a report card for every member of the New York delegation in our nation’s capital. These report cards give you an immigration insider’s view of how your Senators and Congressperson are protecting and advancing immigrant rights. And we don’t hold back, either with praise or criticism.
