Members of the Independent Democratic Conference on Monday announced $250,000 in funding for services for immigrants facing deportation and pushed for an additional $4 million in statewide funding needs.

The call from the state lawmakers comes as elected officials in New York have pledged to act as a bulwark against federal immigration policies under the incoming presidential administration of Donald Trump.

Included in the announcement for the legal services was the newest members of the seven-member conference, Sen. Jesse Hamilton of Brooklyn and Sen.-elect Marisol Alcantara of Manhattan.

The $250,000 announced on Monday will aid the Vera Institute of Justice’s New York Immigrant Family Unity Project.

“We must stand together in the face of hate and protect our immigrant communities. For many, the threat of deportation is an especially difficult challenge to overcome, and often financial barriers prevent them from having fair representation. We want to knock that financial wall down,” said Sen. Jeff Klein, the IDC’s leader. “This is why it is so important, especially now, to ensure funding for programs like the Vera Institute of Justice’s New York Immigrant Family Unity Project so that immigrants facing deportation have a fair day in court. I will continue to fight for this funding in the 2017 legislative session and beyond.”

The announcement was also made with the National Action Network and the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights.

It comes as liberal groups have pushed Democrats in the state Senate — most recently Sen. Simcha Felder of Brooklyn — to not work with Republicans in the chamber, citing Trump’s presidency as a key factor in unifying the party.

The IDC has aligned itself with Senate Republicans, an alliance Klein has praised as having yielded victories such as a $15 minimum wage in the New York City area and a 12 week paid-family leave program.

The New York Immigrant Family Unity Project provides representation for those detained in proceedings at Varick Street Immigration Court. The funding needs are met in New York City, but the need lies in courts elsewhere in the state’s six immigration courts.

The money announced Monday will be used at immigration courts in Batavia and Napanoch, while the IDC plans to push for $11.1 million in funding for the program in order to have full representation for indigent clients in immigration court.
