New York will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost work during the pandemic. The effort — a $2.1 billion fund in the state budget — is by far the biggest of its kind in the U.S. https://t.co/NT8NZy3V9r

@nytimes I’m not in NY, so I don’t have skin in the game, but I feel like it’d be more beneficial to open up channels for these people to become citizens rather than maintain undocumented status.

@nytimes This, and New York has opted out of the IRS proposed tax break for those of us who were on unemployment last year? 😖 I support assistance for our undocumented but they could have done both.
