The pizza delivery man detained on charges on immigration charges can be provided with legal representation, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.

Pablo Villavicencio was arrested Wednesday while delivering a pizza at Fort Hamilton in New York City, sparking an uproar among state and city officials, as well as immigration advocates.

In a statement, Cuomo called the detention an “outrageous affront” to both Villavicencio and New York.

“New York stands ready to provide Mr. Villavicencio and his family with free legal representation and services though the Liberty Defense Project, which is the nation’s first state-led project to assist immigrants, regardless of status, in obtaining access to legal services,” Cuomo said. “In the face of the federal government’s assault on immigrants, we will protect our values and fight for the rights of all New Yorkers.”
