Gov. plans to expand Office for New Americans

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A push is now underway to help immigrants assimilate in New York.

The governor already launched the Office for New Americans, but at his cabinet meeting Monday he announced plans to expand it.

Officials highlighted that more than four million New Yorkers are immigrants and that one out of every four New York State residents are of working age. The secretary of state used those statistics to explain the importance of using the states resources to help them succeed.

"The large majority of foreign born people in our country and in our state are here legally and are contributing to our country and our state," said Secretary of State Cesar Perales.
