Dominican Adriano Espaillat topped the list of the most influential politicians in Manhattan.

New York’s 13th District Representative and Congressman Adriano Espaillat tops the list the most influential politicians from Manhattan.

The list of the 100 most influential people is published annually by City & State magazine, which specializes in political journalism. Adriano is the first undocumented immigrant from the Dominican Republic to become a US Congressman.

No. 1 on the list of the 100 most influential people in Manhattan @CityAndStateNY. I am honored to be recognized for my work in Manhattan and I promise to continue to be the voice of NY-13 and the people of our city,” Espaia wrote after receiving the news.

The Dominican, who is up for re-election this year as a congressman, was first elected as a representative in 2016. In the House of Representatives, he is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the Small Business Committee. He is also a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC).

“Being the first undocumented immigrant to serve in Congress, a member of the House of Representatives. Adriano Espaillat played a key role in immigration policy at the national level. In April, he met with President Joe Biden to try to ease COVID-19 border restrictions and introduced a bill giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship.

“But Espaia wields even more influence in his home district in northern Manhattan and the Bronx, where he supports Dominican-American candidates like George Alvarez, who ousted the incumbent in the Democratic Assembly primary, and backs rivals against incumbent state senators. Robert Jackson and Gustavo. Rivera,” the magazine continues.

Other Dominicans

A few places further on, Dominicans Sean Abreu, Christopher Marte and Carmen de la Rosa are tied for 25th place on the list of the 100 most powerful. All three were supported Adriano Espaillat in his political campaigns for advisers.

De La Rosa is the first woman and the first Dominican to serve on the council of New York’s 10th district, which runs through Washington Heights, Inwood, and Marble Hill, areas populated mostly by Dominicans.

While Sean Abreu represents New York’s 7th District, which covers the Washington Heights and Manhattan Valley areas.

“The new generation of New York City Council members from Manhattan is incredibly diverse. Councilman Carmen De La Rosa of North Manhattan is a prominent ally of the Rep. Adriano Espaillat, another Dominican-American. However, she did her part in protecting workers as a member of the Assembly before joining the council this year, and now chairs the council’s labor and public service committee.

“Another Espaillat protégé is Councilman Sean Abreu, who represents the North Manhattan area…and Councilman Christopher Marte relied on his grassroots Manhattan activism to secure a spot in lower Manhattan,” they write of Abreu and Martha.
