New York City is the most diverse place in the world and nowhere is that more apparent than in the 13th Senate District. At a local school there are over 138 languages spoken, more than any school in America. It's this vibrant diversity that makes our community so strong, and in the State Senate José will fight to ensure that all immigrants have the opportunity to succeed.

Fully funding the New York State Citizenship Initiative

This important program, which was slashed 20 percent in the most recent state budget, funds approximately 20 non-profit organizations to offer citizenship application and interview assistance to thousands of New Yorkers eligible for citizenship. José will restore its funding levels in the New York state Senate.

Protecting the Rights of Immigrants

José Peralta supports enacting legislation to permit all New York residents, regardless of immigration status, to receive driver's licenses and non-driver's identification cards. José also supports legislation permitting immigrants without Social Security Numbers to substitute other forms of identification, including passports to prove identity, and eliminate immigration status requirements.
