The recent raids on employers all across the country, and mostly the fate of illegal workers and their families caught in between, got us all talking about illegal immigration. A recent posting on NPR caught my attention as well.
Gloria Hillard reported on “The New Sanctuary Movement”, a faith based coalition offering aid and at times sanctuary to illegal immigrants. Activists on both sides of the immigration debate including an anti-immigration organization called, “Save Our State”, have been drawn to a small of church north of Los Angeles where an illegal immigrant facing deportation has been sheltered for more than a year.
Read the full NPR report here, I have a feeling this debate will get more emotional in the next few months.
