Albuquerque Friends Meeting Offers Sanctuary

Albuquerque Friends Meeting announced it will be providing sanctuary for a Honduran immigrant grandmother at risk of deportation because of incomplete documentation.  She was afraid to go to a routine check-in at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency last week, because ICE had detained and arrested her once before in 2010.

“We believe that sanctuary is a manifestation of faith and action,” Tina Kachele, the clerk at the Albuquerque Friends Meeting House, explained. “We’re following on the tradition in the faith community, on our own tradition as Quakers, and our more recent work in the last couple of years.”
