Mayor, Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs make emotional visit to legal clinic for migrants in Long Island City


A visit to a legal clinic for migrants in Long Island City sparked emotion on Saturday, when Mayor Eric Adams and Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs Manuel Castro met with local organizers working to help asylum-seekers navigate a complex immigration system — and apply for affordable housing.

With a flood of immigrants pouring into the city in recent months, many of the Big Apple’s newest residents require legal aid. With that in mind, several New York City organizations have set up locations to offer assistance, such as the non-profits AID FOR Life and Fundavenyc, and operates out of 49-27 31st St. in Queens.
