Sanctuary Cities Showdown: Churches Loom as Thorn to Trump

98

President-elect Donald Trump may have a tough love lesson planned for sanctuary cities and the fate of their federal funding – but not if churches have anything to do with it.

As Fox News reported, churches around the nation are stepping up their efforts to shelter the illegals that Trump may want to toss, thwarting any attempts on the part of the incoming administration to crack down on sanctuary cities.

From Fox News:

“Hundreds of houses of worship around the nation have pledged to provide safe harbor to illegal immigrants facing deportation, as have cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and New York City. While Trump may relish a policy and funding fight with the leaders of Democratic strongholds, imposing his administration’s will on churches could be another matter.

“‘There is a long tradition in American law enforcement of not breaking into churches in order to arrest someone unless the person is wanted for an act of violence,’ Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told FoxNews.com. ‘In order for the police or for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to enter a church against the will of a priest or minister who is running the church, they need an arrest warrant for a specific human being –short of that, they’re not going to go in there.’

“In New York City alone, there are 11 congregations that offer sanctuary for illegal immigrants, and according to the Rev. Donna Schaper, senior minister of Judson Memorial Church, more could follow.

“‘There has been a tremendous increase in interest since the election,” Schaper told FoxNews.com. “The newly elected president is threatening to deport many of them and they want to be safe—churches have a moral mandate to help people in a way that is different than cities in general.’

“Schaper is a founder of New Sanctuary Movement New York, an interfaith network of congregations that help to provide spiritual, financial, emotional and legal support to illegal immigrants. In some cases, those under the church’s protection move into the building and live there indefinitely.”

In Philadelphia, the New Santuary Movement has seen requests to sign up spike in recent days – specifically, since the election.

Churches are stepping in to offer illegal immigrants shelter from the deportation storm.
Churches are stepping in to offer illegal immigrants shelter from the deportation storm.

At the same time, it’s not exactly clear what Trump’s plans for deportations of illegals are. From the campaign trail, he spoke bluntly of deporting illegals. But in recent times, he said he’d prefer to focus deportations on those in the country illegally who’ve committed crimes.

Either way, the churches could throw a kink into Trump’s plans.

Again, from Fox:

“‘There are limits to the protection a church can provide, however. Napolitano said illegal immigrants not accused of any subsequent crime cannot be pursued into churches. But no church can shelter a dangerous criminal.

“‘If the person is a fugitive from justice or has escaped from jail or is hiding from a search warrant, then yes – the church is breaking the law by shielding him,’ Napolitano said. ‘But if he is not a fugitive from justice, and just living here illegally, it is not a crime for a church to give him food, shelter, or clothing.’

“One member of Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board told FoxNews.com Trump has no intention of carrying out mass deportations.”

    I know of an Episcopal minister in Cody, WY, who is all for sanctuary and ID-less voting rights.
    So much for ‘Separation of Church and State’ which is being touted by Progressives.

    • NickRepublic

      The left’s ultimate goal, be they in a church or not, is subjugation of the individual by the state. Thus, their god is the state.

      • boucle

        Their god is $$$.

        • Steve

          The liberal socialism plantation run by the progressive masters – we just missed it – this time!

    • Mark Steiner

      The Episcopal (and many other churches) have replaced obedience to God’s word with feel good theology and emphasis on the “good” works of men.

      If I were in Cody I would be praying for God to spare the city in view of what is happening a few miles west in Yellowstone National Park. And, it is NOT the bears who have gone on strike against the tourists because of the lack of pic-a-nic baskets!

      • drummie

        The Episcopal organization left Christianity long ago with its support for transgenderism, gay marriage, gay ministers, advocacy FOR abortion etc. They are no more Christian than the mosque down the street. They have openly mocked God and defied God, loudly, proudly and continuously. They are DEMONIC. Every congregation might not think so but if they support and fund the national organization, the are funding demonic and anti-Christian teaching and actions and are a guilty as the worst of them for supporting them financially.

      • Ron Cole

        Episcopalians are strict reactionaries compared to Unitarians.
        My impression of one of their cult meets was that the manual for the service was `Das Capital`
        with music by kämrəd john lenon.

        .

        • Mark Steiner

          Such as “Imagine”?

    • dhd123

      That separation is only a problem when religion comes out of the church and into the public, but if the church is
      on the same side with Progressives, Progressives will embrace the church every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

  • RealEngineer2

    Sanctuary? Is THAT what they call “aiding and abetting” large-scale demographics who NEVER WORKED A DAY IN THEIR LIVES, NEVER CONTRIBUTED ANYTHING towards BENEFITS taxpayers are ineligible for and LIKELY WON’T in PERPETUITY (50% of “refugees” STILL on the GOV’T TILL 20 YEARS after ARRIVAL), and show DISGUST for their benefactors while MARCHING under the BANNER of FOREIGN FLAGS during so-called “protests”?

    These sympathizers should take note of the FACT if these arrivals were so “humble”, why do we have parade routes guarded by law enforcement commandoes, have attack dogs “sniff “ our briefcases, and wait HOURS at the airport to be scrutinized? Did we do THAT before swinging open the borders?

    Religious institutions RUN on INCOME as well as faith, and should take note of what happened to the NFL after THEY decided to get “too political”…

    • notislam

      Moslem men with 4 wives all getting FREE money and food stamps and not willing to work—Would they work in a CHRISTIAN CHURCH who sponsored them? We never hear the details of how they got here to live off our taxes etc.

  • overboosted ✓ᴰᴱᴾᴸᴼᴿᴬᴮᴸᴱ

    Charity comes from the church, not from the government. Churches in my area often sponsor immigrants to a LEGAL path to citizenship. If they want to “shelter” illegals and break our laws, that is not OK. But they can only do it for so long before they run out of money. It costs money to shelter a hoard of stray cats. With progressivism being shoved down our throats by the government, Christianity and Catholicism is on the decline. Just witness the closure of catholic schools and churches all over America. I doubt our peaceful Muslim friends will be sheltering Hispanic illegals in their mosques, but I may be wrong. (not likely)

    • Strangerinastangeland

      Only if they can be used as suicide bombers.

    • Steve

      The church has been manipulated many times in the past and it seems to be the case with this current line of progressive drivel. The protests can actually provide the means to do the leftist dirty work under the auspices of god’s sanctioning rescue (future voters) -with some good old american tradition thrown in-paid for of course by you and me. I have searched the records and find no instances of terrorism committed by immigrants on ellis island in the past. Immigration today however has become a much more dangerous proposition for our country and religions need to realize they do not speak for all the citizens in that regard. Its an anachronism to compare what immigrants used to be capable of to what they are now capable of as seen over the past few decades. Unfortunately, many religious – including christians – tend to feel that just wishing and praying for god’s protection that that will make it so. There’s nothing wrong with having a good door. This link shows how immigrant terrorism has increased since the 1990s – of course typically by islamic origin – and somehow god’s protection for us wasn’t quite all there- and neither was a good vetting system. http://cis.org/articles/2005/kephart.html

  • Tanker74

    Jesus had the forethought to teach his true disciples to follow only Marxist political ideology in the 21st Century. Anyone who doesn’t help illegal aliens break the law is full of hate and not a true Christian.

    • NickRepublic

      Nice sarcasm.

  • Utahlady

    If they are illegally sheltering them, they should loose their tax exempt status!

    • ThisObamaNation

      Good idea!
      Pull their tax exempt status.
      That’ll learn em, dern em.

      • drummie

        You better get up; earlier, work harder, and learn how to win elections legally if you want to. Of course supporting Obama you probably are a demonic as he is.

    • Mark Steiner

      If Hillary had won, eventually her vindictiveness against churches would have resulted in tax-exempt status being removed at some point, and churches would then pay taxes. In effect, it would have been a judgment of God on the Church for ignoring its primary ministry: preaching the word in season, out of season: II Timothy 53:16-17, 4:2. So-called “good deeds” have to be done as unto the Lord, not in the sight of men or to receive the praise of men.

  • ThisObamaNation

    There are not enough churches with the resources and the facilities to shelter MILLIONS of illegal aliens. They might be able to do a little bit for a little while, but their efforts will ultimately be unsustainable. If Trump really enforces e-verify, cut off welfare benefits, and really comes down hard on employers that hire illegals, the illegals will all self deport within two years of his taking office. Of course, they may riot and act out and try to trash our country on the way out the door but that is to be expected.

    • Amethyst_2012

      We already know the invaders have TB, Leprosy, and other horrible diseases we do not have here. In closed quarters these diseases will spread quite rapidly. This could be a good thing. Might be/ hopefully a lot of deaths from these invaders diseases. Unfortunately they will happen both within and outside the sanctuaries. The churches/sanctuaries will be held responsible.

      • Steve

        I was trying to tell the professors at a local school about this very same thing and they just scoffed at it and decided all they needed to do was wash their hands. I had this image of them washing the blood off their hands as the community becomes exposed to threats brought on by liberal stupidity.

        • Amethyst_2012

          Local schools, churches, eating places, are all prime breeding grounds for things like TB, leprosy, etc. Ask any doctor. They will confirm it. Teachers all over north america are the first ones to get TB. Unsanitary conditions, as those practiced by the invaders helps to spread diseases. Obama and his elites want the mainstream population to thin out. This is one way of doing it. They are so ignorant they think they are immune. HaHa.

            Bill, you and I know who/what Typhoid Mary was. But 95% of the population do not. Cripes – even 90% of nurses do not know who Typhoid Mary was!!! I would say that ZERO percent of immigrants know who she was. This should be made part of becoming an American/Canadian. We learned it in school. How about you?

          • billdeserthills

            I knew of Typhoid Mary from school, but seeing her on 1,000 Ways to Die has much more impact

      Separation of church and state should work both ways. The church should not be able to tell the state how to run its business if they expect to run theirs within the boundaries of our government that protects them.

    • Mark Steiner

      Actually, Bush began a program like this (can’t recall all the specifics), ostensibly because government is “less efficient and more costly” to provide these services than the churches.

      Far as this writer is concerned, a church that receives money from the government is no longer a church. It has become a den of thieves.

      • KimWilde

        Mark, great insightful answers. I also believe that NO church that preaches JESUS should be 501 C3.
        Get the govt. out of the Church.

        • Mark Steiner

          I had a pastor in Colorado who refused to obtain a 501(c)3. Said the offerings collected belonged to God, not the state. It also underscored his point that the state cannot tell him what to preach.

          • KimWilde

            Mark, as I’m sure you know since LBJ any 501(c)3 “church” is under the thumb of the govt. I have tried to make pastors aware of this but to no avail since most large donors are only looking for that tax write off and most pastors seem to want those Earthly rewards. So sad, but these same pastors don’t use GODS WORD any longer and use many of the uninspired man versions to lead their flocks.

          • Mark Steiner

            You have it dead to right, Kim. Abandonment of the whole counsel of God and pleasing men has become the norm of the so-called 21st Century pastor. No preaching in or out of season. Much mush. God is not pleased: Galatians 1:10.

          • KimWilde

            Mark, last point. It appears that your Icon is a picture of Zion drilling in ISRAEL is that correct !

  • 762x51FMJ

    Yes and so will be the demand that the churches install imams to perform mosque services, gradually the Christians become either afraid to go to the churches or become pressured to convert to islam. , And the church becomes a mosque, Like in Cordoba Spain, All sacred Christian cathedrals and cemeteries had mosques built on top of them and they are added to the list of muslim-only holy sites, Al-Aqsa, Hagia Sophia, are examples of sacked Christian holy sites.

    The twisted ideology of Islam demands that in order to be happy you must build your house over the corpses of the Kuffar, Example is the attempt to build the 911 mosque
    atop the dust of WTC victims and name it Cordoba.

    The sites are desired by muslims deliberately to ” erase” the history of everything that is not islam like visiting the grave of a Christian relative, or visiting ancient ruins like Palmyra and Mosul which are pre-Mohammed and therefore were erased from history.

      News flash…they did build a mosque on bodies at twintowers with tallest minaret in the world ,its the “freedom tower”and bathhouse caliph barry signed it himself!…….freedom tower is just waiting to blare the loudest adzan ever heard…look at the minaret on top and tell me im wrong,pray and warn all about what islam is,the worst longest ever lie ever told for criminals pedos murderous land grabbers to hide behind with a twisted form of pious sharia permissions to be barbaric selfish cretans…..its demonic in orgin with zero relief from conflict disease and war….they created perfected slavery,resist their teachings and company with complete conviction.

      The allah is a biblical curse spoken of specifically by name that shall encompass the whole earth entering into and destroying the “homes” of those who swear falsely by God Almighty,read Zechariah in Hebrew its eyeopening.its a real plague….i think islam may be the grand lying delusion spoken of in the new testament that God himself sends at the time of the end on those who delight in wickedness so that they believe that lie and perish.
      In Daniels day they worshiped at same saudi kaaba the same deity with three daughters and 360 others ..falling down to worship it at the call many times a day…like 5 hmmm…..under pain of death….this islam seems the beast system that was! is not! and is yet to come! right under our noses………and i saw the souls of the saints who were beheaded for their testimony to Jesus Christ call out in a loud voice..how long o lord how Long! till you avenge our blood….and they were told to watt a little while longer till the full-number to come in…

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    Not really a problem, except for the residents of Sanctuary Cities. The illegals can congregate there, freeing the rest of the country of the problem. At the same time government funds can be cut off to those Sanctuary Cities. Result, more crime, more poverty in those Sanctuary Cities. Maybe they will end up like a burned out war zone, as in Detroit. Or a ghetto war zone, as in Chicago. Residents who can will likely flee, accelerating the problems there (vicious circle).

    I think this is great, it is going to be fantastic watching the illegals turn the church into a cesspit in a matter of days. All Trump need do is place a cordon around the church. Sieges have always worked and always will.

    Romans 13:1-5 ESV

    Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

    These church’s are playing with fire and breaking their own guiding principles. By all means, pack them a lunch and pray for/with them but then you need to help them onto the bus for their trip home.

    These “churches” would be of the liberal social gospel sect. They are torturing the Word of God with attempting to show the similarity of those whom the Lord Jesus was addressing in the Holy Bible, people who were down and out, homeless, a hungered, and seeking only an opportunity to survive. There is not a word about the possibility of wicked men with intentions of murder and mayhem being immersed within the crowd whom our merciful Lord addressed. There was not a word mentioned about vetting this crowd to weed out bad guys as it is assumed in scripture that those so needing help were simply down and out, period. Nothing further.

    The crowds being thrust upon America and other nations are said to be infested with such evil men and women bent on destruction of their kind hearted hosts and it’s extremely difficult and time consuming to determine just who’s who among the lot. Further, the Lord Jesus taught people to obey the laws of their government and these liberal “churches” are disobeying the laws of the land in harboring those whom the government has reason to deal with.

    The Lord Jesus Christ was no compromiser and He has set forth His Great Commission in Matthew 28 and Mark 16, Holy Bible. The purpose of many of these refugees is to introduce Sharia Law and foster it’s growth wherever liberals allow such. And they want to continue on in their “religion” of Islam. Now, within God’s Word, as stated, the edict is to preach the good news gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for the purpose of saving man’s eternal souls and transforming lives in His form and fashion, not Islam’s. Any guess as to whether these liberal “churches” are doing this or are they merely trying to make these poor folks comfortable and allow them to practice their own “religion”?

    It’s most important for Christians to know what they believe and why and the Holy Bible is the only answer…

    Ground rule: the church shall obey the law of the land, barring tyranny. End of story.

    Simple solution. Sue, tax and fine these lawless churches and stop paying greedy churches and organizations making illegals and refugee resettlement their big business. For money they are undermining the safety and wages in our country. obama used the corrupt IRS to go after his political enemies and Trump needs to learn some treachery from him when dealing with ENEMIES in America. Muslims sue and fine their enemies (Americans rejecting mosques and sharia law) and so far they are getting away with this treachery and attack on American free society.

    I am a Christian. But, if church leaders are willing to violate federal laws and harbor those who have come here illegally to take welfare benefits, free healthcare, and jobs from Americans, those leaders either need to be ousted by the congregation or their church should be burned to the ground by patriots.

  • Herbert Lee Poteet

    By law the answer is very easy and very clear, arrest the minister and the church board that is harboring the illegals, try and convict them so that they serve the 10 years in prison that the law provides for. Just follow the law.

    It is a good idea to study up on The Sanctuary Movement.
    The book ‘God Caesar and the Rio Grande’ by Hillary Cunningham will give you the history of how this group got its start. The book is packed with information so you will need to take good notes.

  • I support taking in Christian refugees if possible, maybe Yazidi ones as well…but Muslim refugees, I am honestly not so sure. Radicalization among Muslim youth is a very serious issue that can no longer be ignored.

    Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi. He did not welcome beastly people.

      What’s that saying Jesus said – do not cast your pearls before swine?

  • DancerTiffy

    We used to be able to trust our christians to do the right thing for America.
    Fine–let the churches feed and provide for the illegals.
    At least we will be keeping the $$billions that we are currently throwing away.

  • billdeserthills

    Perhaps Trump can use his executive pen to allow churches found to be supporting illegals to be stripped of their tax-exempt status. Modern day churches are far more in love with their money, just like good capitalists everywhere throughout the US. He can offer a good reward for the ‘behind the scenes’ church followers to use their greed and disclose when the churches are helping with forbidden illegal aliens.

    Isaiah 5:20 Malachi 3:6 Rev. 22:18-19
    Jesus never killed anyone. Hypocrites! Rev. 2:9
    Render to Caesar, Jesus obeyed the laws.

  • JoJo

    TRUMP will back down from the sanctuary cities. I forsee paul ryan’s amnesty coming. Catholic churches in the Boston area are mostly populated by illegals. The masses are all in spanish. The churches are in it for the money not the faith. End tax exemptions for churches and see how long they last, but it will never happen. I never really believed trump would make any substantial change with the illegals and refugees. They will keep coming.

    Illegal aliens are not immigrants.

    There is no need for the LE to do much–these are such empty threats.

    The average UMC pastor is a pathetic, feeble coward longing for his pension. The lesbians aren’t much tougher

    I dare them to house dangerous foreigners against the expressed will of their congregants. At the first clogged toilet, they’ll surrender.

    What the UMC really wants is $$GRANT MONEY$$–and that dried up November 9.
