One Day Act Could Benefit Immigrants in New York State

NPR News quoted Committee on Immigration Representation chair Camille Mackler on misconceptions surrounding undocumented immigrants and deportation.

It’s called the One Day to Protect New Yorkers Act, or One Day Act, and it changes the maximum sentence for Class A misdemeanors from 365 days to 364 days.
