Senator James Sanders, Jr. to Host Immigration Clinic

State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village, Far Rockaway) will be offering free immigration services while simultaneously hosting his mobile office in Far Rockaway on March 23.

The Immigrant Resource Informational Clinic will work to address the needs and concerns of Rockaway’s undocumented population. The areas of focus for the clinic will include free legal assistance, housing related inquires, and more.

It is being conducted in Partnership with Queens Law Associates and Reverend David Cockfield of the Battalion Pentecostal Assembly Church of Far Rockaway.

Executive Orders signed by the administration have generated confusion and fear among many individuals and families within the 10th Senatorial District. Senator Sanders’ offices have been inundated with calls from families requesting information on how these orders would affect them and their loved ones. Senator Sanders has created this sub-office to meet the needs of these constituents regardless of their legal status and language barriers.

The address for the clinic is 430 Beach 67th Street in Arverne, NY. This is not the same address as the main church campus. The clinic will be held out of the Battalion Youth Ministries House located directly next door to the church.

In addition to the Immigration Clinic, Senator Sanders will simultaneously be hosting his mobile office at the same location, where residents can meet one-on-one with him and share their ideas, thoughts, suggestions and concerns
