Illegal Alien Hiding In Church Feels Like He’s In Jail Or Something

Uh huh

From the link

Jose Chicas spends a lot of time on a porch of a home run by St. John’s Baptist Church in Durham, looking out on a street where he dares not walk.

Chicas fled a civil war in his native El Salvador three decades ago and has lived in the U.S. ever since. Earlier this year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told him he had to leave the country. He said he believes ICE’s stance is linked to his convictions for impaired driving and domestic violence 20 years ago.

Instead of leaving, however, he sought sanctuary in late June at the church on Onslow Street. ICE policy is not to arrest people on church property, so Chicas feels safe as long as he stays at the church and the house it has.

“I cannot go outside in the streets. I just stay over here in the parking lot or the house or go a little bit outside and come back inside again,” he said. “[If] ICE see me in the street, he can catch me. I don’t want to go back to my country.” (snip)

“(It’s) very, very difficult. This is like jail,” he said. “It’s a house, but it’s like jail.

And he goes on to Blame Trump

“The new [Trump Administration] policy decision to simply remove people and separate them from their families is an act of violence we want to stand against,” he said.

This situation is strictly his own fault. He wasn’t forced to come here illegally. He wasn’t forced to stay here all these years illegally. He wasn’t forced drive while impaired or commit domestic violence. Any issues that this causes for him and his family is strictly on him.

But, tell you what: if he stays in that “jail” for the next, say, three years without leaving, then let’s give him legal status. Not citizenship. Just permanent resident status. If he wants citizenship, he can go through the system just like other people do.

    If ICE has a policy not to arrest people on church property, then it’s time for President Trump to change that policy.

    His Majesty King James I ended the right of sanctuary in our mother country, way back in 1623.
