A good friend who had lived in Phoenix for 25+ years and had worked at Catholic Charities said they facilitated an Underground Railroad for illegal aliens.
Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and non-religious org NGO’s are all making hay while the sun shines (Dems in control)
Here is a good list….
- Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project works to prevent the deportation of asylum-seeking families fleeing violence. The group accepts donations and asks people to sign up for volunteer opportunities here.
- South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project is providing free legal services to asylum seekers detained in South Texas.
- RAICES is a nonprofit that provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children, families and refugees in Texas. It’s accepting donations and volunteers at its website. In addition, the #postcards4families campaign will donate $5 to RAICES for every postcard kids write to help the separated immigrant children.
- The CARA Project is currently recruiting attorneys, law students and paralegals with experience in asylum work. The group asks volunteers to be fluent in Spanish or willing to work with an interpreter.
- Kids In Need of Defense partners with major law firms, corporations and bar associations to create a nationwide pro bono network to represent unaccompanied children through their immigration proceedings. Volunteers don’t need to have immigration law experience.
- The El Paso-based Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center provides legal representation to immigrants who might not be able to afford it otherwise. It’s accepting volunteers and donations.

- Justice for Our Neighbors provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrant individuals and families in Texas.

- Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is raising money to provide immigrant children “immediate shelter and beds, medical services, counseling and therapy to help them deal with the trauma of family separation.”
- Together Rising is collecting money that’ll go to advocacy groups that are working to reunify immigrant children with their families.

- The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights is training adults who want to become “child advocates” who will work one-on-one with unaccompanied immigrant children while they are subject to deportation proceedings.
- Tahirih Justice Center is providing free legal and social services to immigrant women and girls fleeing gender-based violence.
Try and find a lawyer who has the fortitude to sue. I’d help fund it. The Catholic churches have been helping people immigrate illegally for years.
Was watching the news this morning. The focus was on the never-ending stream of illegal migrants heading across our (former) “border.”
Looking at videos of hundreds pouring into our country……nearly every one of them dressed in new, or extremely clean clothes, and none are carrying anything more than a backpack, if that.
We’re supposed to believe that these people traveled, unaided, for 1200 miles or more, and never got dirty while whole families supposedly survived with nothing more than a single back pack without water or food.
How stupid do they think Americans are? Apparently, they think we Americans are REALLY stupid, and perhaps too many of us are.
Who is paying their way here?
Catholic Charities and other NGO’s, both faith-based and not faith-based?
They need to be sued to a fare-thee-well for the burdens they’re imposing on this nation. Also, it is against the law to aid and abet illegal entry into the USA, so they can be charged where there is the political will to do so.
Close the border.
Bring back Trump, while there is still time.
