Rev. Chuck Freeman statement: borders and sanctuary justification
“These borders were not established by God,” Rev. Freeman said. “These borders were not ordained by God. These are human-made borders. They are artificial. They are here because of colonialism, imperialism, violence, war-making, power-monger. We do not recognize these borders as they stand as artificial barriers between our human family. So we are speaking out from a faith perspective saying we are one human family. And we will not offer incarceration and intimidation. We will offer hospitality and liberation.
