Immigrant Sanctuary Policy Statement
June 13, 2023
Tioga County is not a sanctuary jurisdiction for persons not legally in the United States. Tioga County hereby affirms its duty to provide for the protection and wellbeing of the public; and all people within our jurisdiction who need assistance or emergency services will receive them. We are a kind, welcoming, responsible, and safe community. While we are deeply committed to serving and protecting every person in our county with compassion and generosity, we are not a sanctuary county and we do not support a policy of encouraging people to ignore the laws on immigration or anything else. Tioga County authorities will always fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement and its agents.
