@lewisandclark History Professor Elliott Young's article in NACLA on the limits of Sanctuary and the need to tie immigration rights movement to decriminalization and the fight against mass incarceration. #SanctuaryCampus #Sanctuary #endmassincarceration
"In the 1980s, it took the dedication of thousands of committed Sanctuary Movement activists willing to commit civil disobedience and go to jail to protect Central Americans from the brutal hands of right-wing dictators in their countries. Whether today’s sanctuary activists are willing to move beyond words to civil disobedience is an open question. The fate, not only of millions of immigrants, but of the very fabric of our democratic republic hangs in the balance."
