Texas Governor Greg Abbott has forced more than 7,000 asylum seekers onto New York-bound buses in the past weeks. These migrants are arriving in New York with little more than what can fit in a plastic bag.
That’s why my office is sponsoring a clothing and toiletry donation drive in partnership with the New York Immigration Coalition. We want to help our new neighbors feel welcome and equip them with basic necessities. Please donate what you can – drop-off points are at my uptown office (431 W. 125th St.) and downtown office (1 Centre St., 19th floor south).
