Latino churches have a big concern that Trump is going to deport their congregation. This has spurred the churches to help the illegals to know their rights and even use church equipment for the mountain of paperwork they have to complete.

Looks like we have some churches who are concerned about closing their doors if Trump deports their illegal immigrant portion of their congregation.


If Donald Trump keeps all his campaign promises, thousands of churches could disappear.

That’s according to Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, who heads the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, an evangelical group with more than 40,000 affiliated congregations.

“The very viability of our churches—these are our church members,” he said. “You’re talking about shutting down churches. If you would ever deport 11, 12 million people, you would shut down so many Latino churches. And I mean so many in thousands, without any hyperbole.”



The pastors inform the illegal immigrants of their rights and consider it their duty to keep the families together.


One thing can pastors do: tell their members, from the pulpit, what to do if ICE shows up at their homes. Jessica Dominguez, an immigration attorney based in Studio City, California, works with churches in Rodriguez’s group to help pastors know what to say.

“My team and I consider it a calling to keep immigrant families informed about their rights, and work daily on purpose to keep families together,” she said in an email to The Daily Beast. “I consider it a blessing to work closely with pastors all over the nation to ensure that our community is informed about their rights.”


Another pastor holds group meetings providing child care, and use of church office equipment. And providing study material, they feel this will grow a relationship with the people.


Harrington said her church also looks to help immigrant rights groups in other ways: by hosting meetings where groups teach immigrants about their legal rights, by providing free childcare at those meetings, and sometimes just by offering them office supplies.

“By offering a copier for people to make copies of training materials, you begin to build a relationship of trust,” she said. “And from that relationship, you’re able to do more radical work when the time comes.”

They'll be giving away Spanish language copies of the Diary of Anne Frank.
The hysteria is just getting started.
It's going to get wild, if you thought the BLM was an issue you ain't seen nothing yet.

Whose fault would it be? Those before a cleanup crew that allowed the mess, or the cleanup crew? It's like a proverbial dont shoot the messenger ala globalism.

Its rather shameful if you ask me. Rather than helping their lawbreakers the process to which legal immigration works they want to put on a spectacle. Those us whom have or have loved ones whom did the right thing paid the dues and waited patiently by immigrating here legaly are being insulted daily by these law breakers.

Doesn't this make them an accomplice to aiding and abetting illegal activity. I don't understand where there is any discussion until they have addressed the fact that they are illegally here in the country.


Elements of Accomplice Liability With some variations, depending on the state, a prosecutor must be able to prove the following four elements in order to convict someone for being an accomplice or aiding and abetting: A crime was committed by another individual; The defendant "aided, counseled, commanded, or encouraged" the other person in the commission of the crime. The defendant acted with the requisite mental state in their jurisdiction,for example, knowingly or purposefully, to assist in the crime (see Mens Rea - A Defendant's Mental State).

Well, maybe those people should actually apply for residency, they will be following the legal path to get into this country. There is an amnesty going on right now and once they start it, Trump will not bother them when he gets in. He is trying to get rid of illegals, making them legal actually would solve the problem.

People always get their tit in a ringer over nothing

He's actually focused on the criminal record holding illegals, but that wont stop the liberal demagogues from sensationalizing the issue to keep the nation divided. We see it every day even here in ATS.

ILLEGAL ALIENS get the hell out. This is not your country. IF you want a voice come her legally instead of running from your problems back home. SCREW YOU.

Sensationalizing the issue? You mean like calling liberals demagogues? Or how about the post right after yours.

I wish they would stop with all this melodramatic crap,
no one is talking about sending them to concentration camps to starve them and burn them alive in ovens, all that is going to happen to them is that they will get sent back HOME.
If their home countries suck so bad then they should do something to change it.
sure America is much better than their home countries but America wasn`t always like this a lot of people died making it the way it is.
sorry but you can`t just come here illegally and expect to reap the fruits of 250 years of other people`s hard work.
They all need to be sent back to their home countries where they can struggle,fight and die to make their countries better and maybe in 200 years their countries will be places that their descendants will want to live.

If you aren`t even willing to make an effort to improve your own country then you sure aren`t going to make an effort to improve a country that you entered illegally and are living in illegally.

Those post-election protestors (one of which on CNN calling for dead bodies over this issue), you think they were actyually acknowledging how for some 6+ months the rhetoric has been centered around the CRIMINALS of the 'illegal' lot? Or is it the other way around them deliberately keeping the reality out of the focus so then they can have the support to Occupy the White House upon inauguration day and keep runnign their dreams of a civil war in motion? All I've seen, even here in ATS the anti-echo-chamber being the real mind warping metric, I say the latter is the reality of the situation of the progressive's Social Group Warfare (SGW) agenda.

So they are aiding illegals by trying to help them to continually stay here illegally and they think that by calling this out publicly they should get support for it?

How about they concentrate on telling these people to apply for citizenship through the legal path instead.

Also they say they are advising them so their families can stay together while these people themselves send their children over the border alone so they can be their anchor and then point the finger at the U.S for not keeping them together.

I agree 100% with zanti misfit. How about they move these churches to mexico and help the people there where their problems start. But maybe their church wont have as many tax benefits in mexico as they do over here and they prefer living here themselves so F* going over there to help these people right?
