We, a group of concerned East Brunswick residents, ask the Mayor and town council to consider a sanctuary city designation for East Brunswick. By doing so East Brunswick will join many other communities in the US in protecting residents from the immigration ban. We are a diverse community with immigrants from all over the world who make East Brunswick a unique, vibrant and special place to live. Our schools educate students who speak over 100 languages, our houses of worship cover a range of religions and denominations and each one of us has neighbors whose origin may be from another continent. Many of us are those immigrant neighbors. In our daily lives we are all hard working residents, who chose to live in East Brunswick because of the welcoming community, excellent schools, wonderful parks and great location. The recent ban on immigration may have negative effects on some of us. Mayor Cohen mentioned the concept of "Tikkun Olam" in a speech at the high school last year, urging students to not be bystanders. This is an opportunity to lead by example.

We ask the Mayor and town council to declare East Brunswick a sanctuary city and commit to support all East Brunswick residents and their families.
