Illegals are invading our country left & right, and the feds seem to purposely turn a blind eye to the problem. What's really maddening is how many churches (mostly Catholic, but some of other denominations as well) are committing crimes by harboring illegals under the guise of "sanctuaries". Even more disgusting is why ICE hasn't targeted these churches when it's obvious that they are providing refuge to people living here illegally.

Please don't tell me that providing sanctuary to illegals is the moral or Christian thing to do, or what kind of crap is in the Bible about it. This is all about the ongoing problem of illegal aliens in the U.S., and people who are breaking the law ... pure & simple! Here in Arizona, we have been supposedly becoming more vigilant in recent years about cracking down on illegals, but it seems to be mostly talk and little action. I recently heard that many churches in AZ are acting as sanctuaries, and nobody is doing anything about it ... not ICE, not the state, no local law enforcement, nobody!

If we want to at least make a dent in the illegal immigration problem, the authorities had better start raiding these churches which they KNOW are breaking the law by harboring illegals. If these authorities are afraid of targeting "the house of the Lord", then they are nothing but cowards, and they are simply using that as a lame excuse. Meanwhile, the problem continues to get worse.

Because at some level ICE is a farce? Because those who have influence do not want to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.?

I can't wait to see those headlines " SWAT hits church forces Bishop out of belfry and Alter boy shot with lit candle. Police thought it was a firing gun.''
