Pol in push to shield immigs

NY Daily NewsKenneth Lovett
ALBANY -- A top state Senate Democrat wants to add immigration status to the list of protected classes in New York's civil rights law.
Sen. Michael Gianaris' bill would make it illegal to discriminate against immigrants -- even those who are undocumented -- when it comes to housing and public accommodations.
"Immigrants are under siege like never before," Gianaris (DQueens) said. "Especially in a place like New York, it's important to let immigrants know that they're welcome and protected."
A spokesman for the Senate GOP majority had no comment on whether the bill has a chance of coming to the floor.
