About Us

New Sanctuary springs from New York’s faith-based and social justice communities and forms a unique family of citizens and immigrants, bound by a love of humanity and mutual respect. Operating for a decade on less-than-shoestring budgets, New Sanctuary has done enormous good for our community. NSC has stopped the forced isolation of many undocumented people by building a large accompaniment program in which citizens go with immigrants to mandatory ICE check-ins and immigration court hearings. Accompaniment provides citizen-witnesses of ICE’s behavior, emotional support for immigrants and also establishes that our friends have strong ties to the local community, a fact appreciated by immigration judges. Accompaniment has proven to slow and sometimes stop deportations and detention
