East Lansing Church Declares Itself A "Sanctuary Church"

From Michigan-

Members of All Saints Episcopal Church in East Lansing plan to house up to two people whose U.S. citizenship in question.

Rector Kit Carlson said her church voted to become a sanctuary church on Tuesday night. The residents could move in by late summer when the church will complete facilities to accommodate them.

"We don’t draw lines between human beings," said Carlson during a news conference on Thursday. "We don’t draw lines because of their immigration status."

Carlson said the community group Action of Greater Lansing and the American Civil Liberties Union will screen potential residents. She said people with felony offenses on their record will not stay at the church.
