PBS NewsHour | More churches are opening their doors to undocumented immigrants facing deportation
From PBS NewsHour:
Since President Trump took office, the number of American churches willing to shelter undocumented immigrants from the threat of deportation has grown to about 1,000 -- a small fraction of the Christian community. Special correspondent Duarte Geraldino meets one immigrant who has been welcomed by a congregation in hopes of buying time to find a legal way of staying in the U.S.
For some immigrants, like Michigan father Jorge Garcia, seeking shelter is no longer an option. Earlier this week, Garcia was deported to Mexico after living in the U.S. for 30 years. Though he was brought to the U.S. as a child, he missed eligibility for the DACA program. Here's an extended look at his story, produced by One Detroit's Bill Kubota.
