NYAC Immigration Task Force

Welcome to the NYAC Immigration Task Force page

The Immigration Task Force, in light of the present reality against our immigrant and refugees, invite you to do everything possible to protect the life and dignity of those that God has called us to care for, “the least of these.” It is our prayer that you will join us on this effort.
