Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday said he would review a bill that would prohibit New York state and local police from participating in immigration enforcement efforts with federal law enforcement, a measure that passed the Democratic-led Assembly this week.

The bill, which would essentially make New York a sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants, faces little chance of passing in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Majority Leader John Flangan questioned the legality of proposal.

“The Assembly passed a bill that said that. We have to review the bill because exactly what a quote-un-quote sanctuary state is is a little ambiguous,” Cuomo said. “The Senate has said the bill is unconstitutional. We’ll look at the specifics of the bill, but this is a state that protects and supports immigrants, period.”

Cuomo insisted New York remains a beacon for immigrants as the federal government moves to ban travel from seven Middle Eastern countries for three months and halt refugee travel for four months.

“We are all about immigrants and we have programs and a culture that supports immigrants,” he said.

Another bill, designed to provide tuition assistance to undocumented immigrants, also faces similarly tough odds in the Senate. Cuomo has once again included the measure, known as the DREAM Act, in his budget proposal.

“The Senate has adamantly refused every year,” Cuomo said of the bill. “It appears they’ll adamantly refuse again this year.”
