Bay Area Solidarity Network aims to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation

4/7/17 SAN JOSE – Building on a national movement to protect immigrant communities, faith leaders and local and state politicians on Friday pledged their support to undocumented immigrants who fear deportation under the Trump administration.
The network includes 70 congregations throughout Santa Clara County. Some have pledged to offer sanctuary to families at immediate risk of deportation while others will provide various forms of support to these individuals, such as connecting them to legal resources. Others will participate in PACT’s Rapid Response Team, a group of volunteers that plans to show up to the scene of local ICE raids to document the incident.
