The Red Cards were created to help both citizens and noncitizens defend themselves against constitutional violations during ICE raids. These cards provide citizens and noncitizens with information about how to assert their constitution rights and an explanation for ICE agents that the individuals are indeed asserting their constitutional rights.

A Bay Area-specific version of the Know Your Rights Card is available free of charge to non-profit organizations within the following nine counties: San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Solano, Sonoma, and Napa. If you will be distributing the cards to immigrants in these counties, please send your inquiry to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

searching for sanctuaryThe Department of Homeland Security detains and deports hundreds of thousands of immigrants every year. The massive immigration enforcement regime has devastating effects on immigrant families and communities.

Amidst looming threats of mass deportation from the incoming administration, what is the role of local governments and local law enforcement?

Our findings indicate that the majority of localities across the country spend their own resources assisting with federal immigration enforcement.

There are many ways that cities and counties can lawfully provide sanctuary for immigrants. At the root, they must work to keep families together and safe.

We strongly urge county and state officials to take immediate steps to adopt or strengthen the policies outlined within this report.

Though sanctuary cities will continue to play an important role, we need more county and states to delineate themselves from federal immigration enforcement and protect theircommunities.

The University as a Sanctuary Final.pdf
Soon after the election of Donald J. Trump as President-elect of the United States, many faculty, students, and staff throughout the country campaigned to have their campuses designated as “sanctuaries.” Although the concept of a sanctuary dates to the ancient Greek and Roman empires, it has special historical significance for the United States. For decades, sanctuaries have offered a wide range of individuals - including conscientious objectors to war and faith-based social activists - protection from targeted political prosecution (Lippert, 2013). Nevertheless, the call for a college or university to
become a sanctuary is relatively new. The impetus for the call concerns President-elect Trump’s repeated demand to reverse the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy and deport all undocumented individuals from the United States. Approximately 730,000 individuals who have applied and been approved for DACA are amongst those who might be deported (Hipsman, Gómez-Aguiñaga, & Capps, 2016).
