Churches Form Modern Underground Railroad for Immigrants

Churches across the US are fighting back against the Trump administration’s mandate to ramp up deportations with new sanctuary practices of their own, using private homes in their congregations as shelter and potentially creating a modern-day underground railroad to ferry undocumented immigrants from house-to-house or into Canada. Rev. Justo Gonzalez, II, pastor of Pilgrim St. Luke’s in Buffalo, “We’re willing to take that risk because it is our call to justice, and this is how we live our faith." Gonzalez leads one of the churches that has reached out to an organization in Canada to possibly take in undocumented families. President Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration and two Department of Homeland Security memos abandon Obama-era mandates to only focus on criminals for deportation, and instead, put nearly every undocumented immigrant at risk of deportation for something as minor as a traffic ticket.
