Jewish woman and Baptist minister unite to protect immigrant family from ICE
By Gabe Ortiz

"Since the 2016 presidential election, the sanctuary movement has seen a resurgence. More than 800 congregations pledged to protect immigrants and “more than 2,000 congregations have trained in rapid response across the country, most of them in California,” according to CNN. “The network of safe houses has dozens of undocumented immigrant families who are hiding from ICE at any given time. The goal, says Hoover, is merely to keep families together.” There is very real fear of the government’s reprisal, the reverend says, but it won’t stop him. "We are asked to love our neighbors as ourselves. Ripping children away from their parents under the pretense of community safety when these are our neighbors and churchgoers? No.”





====================================================

God is surely smiling down on those two fine people and many others who are doing the work that He said should be done on Earth to help one's fellow man. Would Jesus Turn Them Away? It is often those who purport to espouse religious teachings that appear to be almost totally devoid of them and do not actually follow them. If they did they would find a way to help those who seek help in a sanctuary in our country rather than go against them and try to castigate them by sending them back to a country they may not know and are in danger of being hurt in or worse.

Unfortunately, this program of hiding illegal immigrants from ICE is almost certainly illegal.

Why would the spouse and kids separate from the deported father? Sounds like a family decision . When fathers are sent to jail / prison , there is a lot of family separation.

So was hiding Anne Frank....some times the law is so onerous, it deserves to be disobeyed.
The deported father is not facing a prison camp or death. He broke laws , he got caught. You can suck up to illegals all you want, the laws need to prevail.

Illegals brought this on themselves. Wish you had same feelings towards Americans.

When human rights are being violated, there are arguments that can be advanced for this. Immigration to a particular country is not a human right, and we are not talking about refugees from human rights violations in this context.

It is the position of ICE that citizen children cant be deported with their families because they are citizens. So rather than leave the decision to the parents, the kids are taken from them and put in foster care.

Still, undocumented immigrants do have rights, and these rights are being routinely violated by ICE agents, and judges, who, I am told, are down right rude.
