Seeking Sanctuary

sandra_lopez_and_rev._shawna_fosterIt is a sad day when people who are otherwise good human beings are in fear of our government due to arbitrary laws that are designed to protect the privilege of one group of people over the welfare of others. Are the controls in place reasonable? Who gets to decide what immigration laws are reasonable?

Into this arena steps Sandra Lopez. I don’t know her story, but she has sought sanctuary in the Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist church’s parsonage, Carbondale, Colorado.

There are no illegal people, just people who draw a line on a map and say that anyone who crosses that line without permission will be arrested. How did the people drawing the lines get that right?
