What We Do

What We Do

  • Provide physical sanctuary for immigrants who are in danger and have exhausted all legal options to avoid deportation
  • Coordinate and run campaigns in solidarity with immigrants, who take sanctuary to stop their deportations.
  • Accompany immigrants to San Antonio for their court hearings, ICE check-ins and ankle-monitor appointments while they pursue their political asylum cases. We also connect them with fellow immigrants who are pursuing political asylum or other types of US Visas
  • Monitor and intercede when an ICE action is in progress through the Sanctuary in the Streets program. This is a group of direct action responders who are trained observers who go to the scenes of ongoing ICE interactions to help ensure that the rights of immigrants are not violated.
  • Provide assistance to emergency situations in the form of transportation, shelter and food.
  • Assist religious organizations with furnishings and installation of facilities, such as showers, so they can provide physical sanctuary to immigrants and their families.
  • Educate the faith community and the community as a whole about the refugee crisis and mass migration, partnering with other educators and multi-faith groups who approach the crisis from an ethical and theological perspective.
  • Raise funds to finance a support staff to oversee and administer the work of the ASN. (Started but not yet realized.)
