Over 800 churches harbor illegals in U.S.


I found this report interesting as I had attended the Arch Street United Methodist Church back in the early 1980’s which is discussed. I witnessed the church devolve into allowing the homeless to disrupt services, wandering about, talking out loud. It wasn’t even safe leaving one’s purse behind when going forward to take Communion. Needless to say I left the church as so many others as they become no more than political operations. It’s big money for religion in resettlement of the so called refugees. Check out

The nine major federal resettlement contractors determining the futures of your cities and states and which like to call themselves VOLAGs (short for Voluntary agencies)—a joke considering how much federal money they receive.

But let’s get back to the story:

A new report reveals how churches nationwide are harboring illegal immigrants, helping them evade federal immigration orders for deportation.

In a 60 Minutes special report, more than 800 churches are acting as mini-sanctuary jurisdictions to hide illegal immigrants from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

ICE has a long-standing policy in which agents do not detain illegal immigrants at churches, making the facilities an ideal spot to avoid deportation orders.

In a Buffalo, New York, church profiled, parish staff confirmed that they recently harbored an illegal alien family of four from Honduras. Since January, the church officials said it protected more than 40 migrants.

Rev. Robin Hynicka of Philadelphia’s Arch Street Methodist Church explained how he believes enforcing federal immigration laws are oppressive to illegal immigrants who remain in the U.S.

“It’s injustice and oppression, all of which is evil,” Hynicka said. “Yeah, when a human being’s human rights are denied, when they can’t stay with their family, when they can’t work, when they can’t participate in the community in which they have deep roots, all of those apply.”

In one specific case, Hynicka’s church has been harboring Javier Flores Garcia, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who came to the U.S. in 1997. Garcia was arrested and convicted for drunk driving, and despite an immigration judge ordering him be deported, he remains hiding out in Arch Street Methodist Church.

    What I can’t get my head around is that churches which are supposed to be the most law abiding and moral organizations on the face of the earth can turn from their mission of saving grace and the salvation of men’s spiritual souls to take on the role of blatant law breakers and harborers of people who could — in an instant — turn murderous and spread death, destruction and carnage everywhere.

    Don’t go getting in an uproar now! I personally like NOTHING when it comes to churches…they [and that includes the congregation] think they’re above the laws of the country. I also think that ANY church should pay a tax…my brother [estranged for a reason] held church services in his HOME so he was tax exempt…yep…you got me riled again. And I wrote a novella here. I will stop now…promise.

    If any good can come out of the attack in Manchester it will be that people start reevaluating the refugee program and think twice about it but I don’t think that is going to happen…

      Steve, I think most countries are too far down the road for any meaningful remediation of the Islamist problem … including us. No one seems to be aware that the Moslem Brotherhood now controls most US prisons. Corrections have become an incubator for future radicals, and this is but ONE aspect of the problem. We can’t give the boot to US citizens, and most of our problems are what is termed “home grown.” Thank goodness for Jack Daniels.

    Only 800? Time to revisit the federal budget and dangle more taxpayer money in front of those holdout churches while Congress and the bureaucracy get thire creative juices flowing and come up with more programs to funnel that money to them.

    We aren’t going to solve this “illegal immigration” problem until after we invade and conquer Mexico. Then, in about another 50 years, we might be able to restore western values among these people who, at least thus far in their history, appear incapable of civilized society.

      A good example of what goes wrong when there is no respect for law and order. Mexico is out of control. Next election the Mexicans will no doubt elect a champion of a failed State such as Venezuela.

    Two words to Hynicka,” YOUR ILLEGAL!!!” Geesh…it has nothing to do with human rights, we are a country of rules and laws, learn to follow them. I think all those churches should be raided, arrested and charged. Just my two cents and yes, in a foul mood this morning, wink. PC going wrong in this country…don’t get me going.

      I go further and say these churches are Biblically wrong, too. I don’t recall Christ instructing his followers to disregard the laws of the countries in which they resided. Nor did they have border/immigration laws like we have now. These churches are completely wrong.
