Liberty Defense Project | The State of New York

In New York, we support the rights of and stand with immigrants faced with deportation so that every New Yorker has access to the full protections afforded under the law.

With the Liberty Defense Project, New York State launches the first-in-the-nation, state-led public-private project to assist immigrants, regardless of status, in obtaining access to legal services and process. Governor Cuomo continues our legacy of protecting the rights and freedoms of all New Yorkers.

The Liberty Defense Project will be administered by the state’s Office for New Americans and will be run in partnership with law firms, legal associations, advocacy organizations, major colleges and universities, and bar associations.
