NY launches hotline for missing people in wake of immigration ban

Cuomo ordered the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, the Department of State, and his Counsel's office to look into legal options for all refugees held at NY airports and ensure that their rights were protected. While campaigning for the presidency, Trump said he is anti-abortion and promised to appoint a judge who would overturn the 1973 decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade held that the U.S. constitution protects a woman's right to choose to terminate her pregnancy prior to fetal viability or throughout pregnancy when it is necessary to preserve her life or health.

Late-term abortions would be protected if Roe v. Wade is codified into the state's constitution.

A small majority of New Yorkers, 51-47 percent, are pessimistic about the country's future under Trump, while last month voters were almost evenly divided with 49-48 percent optimistic.

There were 29.6 abortions per 1,000 women in NY in 2014, compared to 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women nationally, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit group that supports abortion rights.

New York Governor Cuomo is offering his top attorneys to help defend detainees and their families affected by President Trump's executive order banning immigrants, in the midst of second day of protests across the nation, including at New York's John F. Kennedy airport.
