(WIAT) — Nearly 3 dozen churches in Birmingham have offered sanctuary for immigrants after ICE raids have become more common. The letter says, “Though we represent diverse theological perspectives and traditions, our mutual commitment to the scared and ethical treatment of our neighbors transcends boundaries: we believe in loving our neighbors as ourselves, in doing no harm, and in seeking ht best for every member of our community. We believed that our ethical and theological commitments require us to take a stand against policies and language that dehumanize our immigrant siblings.”
