Excluded workers march to Capitol eyeing $3B more in benefits

Hundreds of advocates marched to the state Capitol on Wednesday, blocking roads along the way, as they pushed lawmakers to include $3 billion in the state budget to replenish the “excluded workers fund” for undocumented New Yorkers.

The advocates, joined by progressive lawmakers, began their walk at the Amtrak station in Rensselaer and crossed the Hudson River as they sought to raise the profile of an issue that has so far been left out of budget proposals by the governor and Legislature.
