Big News: The Catholic archbishop of Chicago has instructed churches and schools not to voluntarily allow immigration enforcement agents onto their property.
Cardinal Blase Cupich's letter to priests means that his archdiocese is joining the hundreds of churches around the country who have pledged not to cooperate with immigration enforcement.
Under President Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have been pushing the boundaries of preexisting policies on sensitive locations like churches. In one case, they even laid in wait outside a church hypothermia shelter to ambush immigrants as they were leaving.
Let's send a powerful warning to Trump and ICE that our churches are off limits.  
Can your church pledge not to cooperate with immigration enforcement?
