Sanctuary Cities, Communities, and Organizations: A Nation at a Crossroads is an excellent and important book written by Melvin Delgado, professor in the School of Social Work at Boston University... In this political climate, the Sanctuary movement is more important than ever before in fighting for the rights of unauthorized immigrants. Social workers and group workers are in a critical position to advance this movement and stay true to their ethical values
and mission of social justice, human rights, social action, diversity, and inclusiveness. This is a must-read book for social work practitioners including group workers, policymakers, researchers, and academics, as well as anyone interested in immigrant rights.
