State Sets Up Hotline For Detained Foreign Travelers

This comes after Cuomo directed the Port Authority, the Department of State and Davis's office yesterday to jointly explore all legal options to help anyone detained at NY airports, and to ensure that the rights of refugees are protected under the law.

New Yorkers do like the new president's infrastructure ideas and his policies when dealing with Russian Federation but on seven other issues, including race relations and the environment, they don't think he will perform.

Governor Cuomo has proposed a constitutional amendment that would codify Roe V. Wade into the New York State Constitution, a move reproductive rights advocates have been pressing for years, and with increased urgency since the election of Donald Trump.

The governor announced the proposal during a "I stand with Planned Parenthood" rally Monday in Albany.

"As they threaten this nation with a potential Supreme Court nomination that will reverse Roe v. Wade, I want them to know today: If that's what they do, we're going to protect Roe v. Wade in the state of New York", Cuomo said.

Attempts to write the protections from Roe v Wade into New York's laws have been tried for a decade, beginning with former Governor Eliot Spitzer in 2007, and continuing with Governor Cuomo. "Perhaps it's because no legislator has been indicted or convicted with a new scandal in the last few months", Greenberg said.

US Government Scientists Resist Trump's Gag Order On Twitter
Nasa is the latest in a series of federal agencies having rogue Twitter accounts set up on their behalf by anonymous employees. Another, @ungaggedEPA, says that their Twitter account is for all the news and information they can't tell the public about.

Cuomo announced the measure as President Trump is about to fill vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

For instance, she says, New York's law permits abortions after 24 weeks to save the life of the mother, but does not provide protections if the women's health is in danger.

This poll was conducted January 22-26, 2017 by telephone calls conducted in English to 812 NY state registered voters. President Trump's executive action against war refugees represents a new low in modern American foreign policy and it is incumbent on us to fight back. "NY has zero tolerance for intolerance, and we will work with the Senate and Assembly to make this law a reality".

On seven other issues, the poll showed most New Yorkers think he'll make America worse. "The New York community is composed of all the above".

Senator Stewart Cousins called Cuomo's proposed constitutional amendment "a very long game", that requires two consecutively elected state legislatures. Some 19 states have laws that could restrict abortion in that event, while seven have laws that would still guarantee the right to an abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
