In Defense of NYC Undocumented Immigrants

New York is a city of immigrants.

Our past, our present, and our future are intertwined with the immigrant experience.

It is a story of men, women and children from every corner of the globe who, since our country’s beginnings, have journeyed to our city in search of opportunity.

Together, they built the undisputed capital of the world

In NYC, undocumented workers contribute $793 million in state and city taxes, and if all were granted a pathway to citizenship and allowed to work, would contribute an additional $176 million in state and city tax revenue
