Sanctuary Movement Offers Refuge For Central Americans Facing US Deportation

The Sanctuary Movement made headlines in January by providing refuge in Philadelphia to a Honduran woman whose two children were born in the United States.

CHR Comment: The article provides two very different figures for the number of churches participating in the Sanctuary Movement. One pastor says 50, another mentions 300. Since persons from Central America may be eligible for asylum, the churches offer them a place to stay until their status is confirmed.
