NY launches hotline for missing people in wake of immigration ban

The Democratic governor unveiled his proposal at a rally near the state Capitol hosted by Family Planning Advocates, the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in NY.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new hotline to for anxious New Yorkers anxious their loved ones might be in detention at an airport after President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday instituting a temporary ban on travel from seven majority-Muslim countries. In response to confusion over how the order is carried out, or prevented by federal judicial orders, the governor has set up a hotline for families who are trying to locate a relative who might be stranded.

"As they seek to limit women's rights, we seek to protect them". "And those rights have to be protected".

His remarks came a day before President Donald Trump is scheduled to unveil his pick for a vacant seat on the Supreme Court, a decision pro-choice groups fear could precede the court re-considering Roe v. Wade.

"For family members and friends to confidentially report passengers who were scheduled to land at NY airports from any of the seven countries that are identified in the executive order, but did not", David said.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Monday that he plans to push for an amendment to add the rights established by the 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade to the New York Constitution. The Task Force will also coordinate with local District Attorneys to provide necessary support during the prosecution of hate crime cases.

Trump, Putin to speak after months of speculation over Kremlin interference
The U.S. and the European Union initially imposed sanctions on Russian Federation after it annexed the Crimean Peninsula in 2014. Portman said in a written statement . "That's called an asset, not a liability", Trump said before his inauguration.

Cuomo counsel Alphonso David said the hotline will be available to family and friends wishing to discretely alert state authorities of any immigrant returning to the NY from the seven countries in Trump's order.

This poll was conducted January 22-26, 2017 by telephone calls conducted in English to 812 NY state registered voters.

The governor's desire to make abortion legal through the ninth month of pregnancy is so out of the mainstream and was wisely blocked by common sense lawmakers previous year. "As a New Yorker, I am black, I am gay, I am disabled, I am a woman seeking to control her health and choices", Cuomo said Sunday, "because as a New Yorker, we are one community - the NY community comprised of all of the above".

Several have been detained at JFK and thousands of New Yorkers poured into the airport to protest.

Bringing up his three college-age daughters who he said are frightened about the new direction of the country, Cuomo ripped what he called the new "extreme right wing agenda that will trample on our rights" and has placed women, immigrants and members of the LGBT community under attack. "That's simply too long for New Yorkers to wait".
