IMMIGRATION


led by Prof. Anna Law



"Today’s sanctuary-cities movement shares the convictions of this campaign of the nineteen-eighties, but the means of resistance are quite different. Christopher Lasch, an associate professor at the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, who has written extensively on sanctuary policies, warns that the term can be misleading: “What people get all wrong is that they hear the word ‘sanctuary,’ and they think it’s about harboring people.” Unlike sanctuary churches, sanctuary cities aren’t pursuing a public act of subversion but rather a course of non-coöperation, telling their police and jail personnel to refuse assistance to federal immigration authorities in their efforts to deport immigrants." - THE LIMITS OF SANCTUARY CITIES
