A10633 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10633
 
SPONSOR: Espinal
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil rights law, in relation to the prohibition on certain databases and registries   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The executive law is amended to add a new section 79-0 in that would prohibit state and local agencies from expending resources to assist the federal government in the creation or maintenance of any database or registry based on race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, reli- gion, or national or ethnic origin.   JUSTIFICATION: Regrettably, some persons in New York State are reluctant to interact with state and local agencies out of fear or mistrust. Regardless of individual immigration status, these persons are concerned with possible immigration-related consequences for themselves or family members upon interacting with government agencies that provide vital services and benefits. While much of immigration law is established at the federal level, there are policies that can be enacted by New York to ensure that persons are not stereotyped, profiled or deterred from interacting with government entities. Toward that end, this bill would prohibit state and local agencies from expending resources to assist the federal government in the creation or maintenance of any database or registry based on race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or national or ethnic origin.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017: A.4884 (Moya) Passed Assembly   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
