There is no question that there needs to be a solution to the illegal crossing of the border between the US and Mexico. The numbers of murderers, rapists, kidnappers and other violent criminals is intolerable to people who wish to be left alone. Now, there are churches and synagogues offering sanctuary to these people and fighting the law.

The violent criminals mixed in with the illegal immigrants

Here, via the Center for Immigration Studies, is the breakdown of just one Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) report.

In 2013, ICE freed 36,007 convicted criminal aliens from detention who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings, according to a document obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies. This group included aliens convicted of hundreds of violent and serious crimes, including homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. The list of crimes also includes more than 16,000 drunk or drugged driving convictions. The vast majority of these releases from ICE custody were discretionary, not required by law (in fact, in some instances, apparently contrary to law), nor the result of local sanctuary policies.

The document reveals that the 36,007 convicted criminal aliens freed from ICE custody in many instances had multiple convictions. Among them, the 36,007 had nearly 88,000 convictions, including:

  • 193 homicide convictions (including one willful killing of a public official with gun)

  • 426 sexual assault convictions

  • 303 kidnapping convictions

  • 1,075 aggravated assault convictions

  • 1,160 stolen vehicle convictions

  • 303 flight escape convictions

Faith groups protecting the criminals

Here, via CNS News, is what faith based groups are doing to protect the criminals who should not be in this country.

“The sanctuary movement is a response to the lack of action,” Grijalva continued. “To lead on this moral imperative is critical.

“Sanctuary would spare many families [from] deportation and [give] some the ability to be able to function and live in our society, something all these families have earned,” he added.

Following the example of a similar sanctuary movement in the 1980’s, 24 faith communities – including synagogues and mostly Protestant churches – have offered to harbor illegal aliens in cities such as Denver, Portland, Philadelphia and Chicago.

Sanctuary participants rely on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement  (ICE) policy that does not allow immigration officers to enter sensitive areas such as schools and churches.

“We’re fairly confident that they won’t enter into the sacred space of a house of worship and we’re just hoping they continue to keep that promise,“ said the Rev. Alison Harrington, whose church, Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, is part of the movement.

“After the President’s announcement on September 6th to, again, delay administrative relief to those at risk of deportation, faith bodies began to question the morality of waiting and bearing the daily loss of our brothers and sisters any longer,” said Rev. Gradye Parsons of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. who participated in the Sept. 24 teleconference.

Southside Presbyterian has a legal clinic that places immigrants facing imminent deportation in touch with the church authorities to gain sanctuary. Once the church votes, “we have a prayer service over them and welcome them into the physical space of the church,” said Harrington.

Rosa Robles Loreto, an illegal immigrant who has been living in the U.S. since 1999, has been staying at Southside Presbyterian with her husband and two sons since the order deporting her to Mexico arrived a month and a half ago.

“My goal is to be able to stay together with my sons and my husband who need me and to not separate our family,” Loreto said.  “My struggle goes further than from my immediate family, and it is a call and a national petition so that others can also have hope and establish their lives here, where we have already lived for so long.”

Theresa Wagner, a representative from the Presbyterian Church, says that the participating churches are willing to break the federal harboring law for the sake of the illegal immigrants.

“There is a risk involved, but we all answer to a higher calling too, so that’s where the denomination stands on that issue,” she said.

“Theres a question as to whether or not they’re even breaking the law,” Wagner further explained. “Some circuits have said that the offence of harboring an individual occurs only when you attempt to conceal them, and the churches that are involved in this movement are by no means attempting to conceal anyone.

“However, there are other courts that have ruled that the mere provision of shelter is enough to have violated the harboring law,” she acknowledged.

Rabbi Linda Holtzman of the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia defended her congregation’s civil disobedience. “When we see an unjust law it needs to be disobeyed, and in the Jewish community, I think that’s clearly clear,” she said.

Are there innocent people fleeing corruption and crime? Yes, but once they cross into this nation illegally, they are criminals. The US has enough criminals, so we need to solve that problem before allow more of them in. Besides, we have to clean up the entire justice system before then, as well.
