From the Mayor’s Office of Immigration Affairs

Hello, Families. Some information below for you from the Mayor’s Office of Immigration Affairs:

The City of New York supports all its residents. Everyone, including undocumented immigrants, can access most City services, such as going to school or using the healthcare system or other City services. City employees will not ask about immigration status unless it is necessary to do their jobs. They must keep immigration status information confidential.

And, from the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs:

Immigrants face unique challenges in the workplace and marketplace. The Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) created these tips to educate immigrants about their rights and where to turn for help:

Final Note: to date, no immigration or border authority has entered a NYC public school. If this should occur in future, they will be required to sign in with the School Safety agent who will notify the principal. The principal will in turn notify DOE legal immediately.
