Sanctuary is a big idea that can’t reasonably be left in the hands of the mayor, the State, or any government agency. Imagine if the Underground Railroad required mayoral or governmental approval before the Abolitionists undertook their brilliant and brave work. DOA! The racist, reactionary governor of Texas just signed SB 4, the anti immigrant bill outlawing sanctuary in Texas. Six hundred people testified on the bill, and a tiny group (and only one sheriff in all of TX) testified in favor. Overwhelming opposition did nothing to slow down the bastard governor. Everyone reading this imagines they’d have been an Abolitionist in the 1850’s. Now’s your chance: Immigrants Welcome Here! Sanctuary Lives in the Hands of the People!
Sanctuary—It’s in your hands!
