Over a quarter of California residents are immigrants. In Santa Barbara County, the numbers are nearly the same with over 100,000 immigrants who are workers, business owners, tax-payers, and neighbors. The Interfaith Sanctuary Alliance (ISA) was created as a branch of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) in response to increased anti-immigration rhetoric and ICE activity nationwide. The ISA is a coalition of over 30 local faith communities seeking to advocate for and create resources for undocumented immigrants living in fear of deportation. The ISA’s mission is to work to ensure respect for the dignity, safety, and human rights of all people, while lawfully resisting unjust policies and practices that target and discriminate against immigrant communities.

At present, the ISA is seeking hosts and sponsors to support LGBTQ+ asylum seekers.
