De Blasio Administration Promises Muslims It Will 'Fight Back' Against Donald Trump
by Madina Toure
Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Nisha Argawal said the city will have to "wait and see" what kinds of policies President-Elect Donald Trump actually tries to implement once he's sworn in, but vowed the city would continue to support and advocate on behalf of Muslims and immigrants generally.
Agarwal—a public interest lawyer whom Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed to head the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs in February 2014—was part of the panel last night on how the election results would affect Muslims in the United Stats and how to combat discrimination at the New York Law School that included professors and advocates. The event was organized well before the election actually took place, when few foresaw an electoral triumph for Trump and his campaign promises to bar people from Middle Eastern countries from entering the United States.
