Protesters demand New Brunswick declare itself a 'sanctuary city'

The following is an excerpt from originally published February 7, 2017.

Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale, of the Reformed Church of Highland Park and New Jersey's Green Party gubernatorial candidate, spoke before the crowd on the steps in front of city hall and made his own demands to Cahill and the city.

"We want you to set up a neighborhood watch so that when people are dropping off their 5-year-olds at kindergarten, we don't have ... ICE waiting to snatch their dad away," said Kaper-Dale, who has long advocated for protecting refugees and immigrants.

"That's what a mayor should do!" he yelled into the megaphone.
