How Churches Can Give Sanctuary and Still Support the Law

An interview in Christianity Today magazine with Rev. Alexia Salvatiera, co-founder of the Matthew 25 Movement.

I’ve been so encouraged by the wave of passion and compassion in the church. Churches really want to help and have been asking, “What can we do? How can we provide legal help, discourage the worst abuses, bring light to the stories of what’s happening?” Churches have been working to get power of attorney for children so they don’t go into foster care if parents are deported. Some pastors are choosing to be present near their local schools to offer comfort for families, and also to potentially discourage immigration officials from targeting families trying to attend school.
