Some church in Simi Valley, California is “hiding” an illegal immigrant and her child from immigration authorities who want to deport her–no, I’m not talking about my favorite fugitive Elvira Arellano but yet another (of what I assume must be thousands) mouthy lawbreaker!
Following a recent protest which required (expensive) additional law enforcement support, the mayor of Simi Valley, Paul Miller, decided to charge the responsible party for all costs incurred. Yeah, the church!! The United Church of Christ is currently home for “Liliana” as part of the church’s “New Sanctuary Movement.”
The “New Sanctuary Movement.” is an official program/policy for allChurch of Christ facilities–and they just got a $40,000 bill from thecity! I think it’s brilliant, just brilliant!
Mayor Miller made his intentions very clear and very simple: “This city is not going to be known as sanctuary city.”
