New York setting up legal fund for immigrants facing deportation

The New York governor’s office announced that it will allocate $10 million to a defense fund to help illegal immigrants facing deportation get legal counsel. The Liberty Defense Project is a public-private partnership that has also received an additional $1.5 million commitment from private foundations. According to statistics, the vast majority of illegal immigrants who appear in court without legal defense end up being deported.
