Unfortunately, city agencies are not providing on-the-ground response and ICE incident verification, and so the City has turned to CUFFH to help provide this critical service. When a resident contacts CUFFH or a member church about an alleged raid, we will be out in the streets to document and verify the report, notify other residents of possible ICE presence in their building/area, and provide emotional support to those immediately impacted.
Know Your Rights
Working closely with our member churches, other organizations and agencies across the city, CUFFH has launched a Know-Your-Rights series to provide critical information to at-risk immigrants.
CUFFH Member Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, has provided immigrant services and legal aid to congregants and community members for nearly four decades. CUFFH will support the expansion of immigrant services here, at St Martin de Tours Roman Catholic Church and Trinity Grace Church.
Families or individuals who are threatened by ICE raids or other immigration attacks can seek refuge in undisclosed churches while awaiting assistance or referrals to legal representation and safe housing.
To combat discrimination and hateful rhetoric imposed by the federal government, the CUFFH Network will continue to elevate the anti-discrimination voice to protect the most vulnerable low-income immigrant communities.
