Immigrants Rally In Albany, NY

Immigrants demand $100 million initiative in N.Y. – Press & Sun-Bulletin
Posted Monday February 25, 2008ALBANY– After a fallout last year over Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s failed plan to allow illegal immigrants to obtain drivers’ licenses, more than 1,000 immigrants rallied on the steps of the Capitol on Monday to demand a new initiative from Spitzer: a $100 million citizenship program to fund education and legal services to help immigrants assimilate more easily.

The crowd was made up of a diverse mix of immigrants – from Russia, Mexico, Africa, Korea, Haiti and other countries – that now call the state home.
