The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is, and has been for decades, on the front lines of protecting asylum seekers in danger of deportation, and Wednesday the denomination reaffirmed its commitment by standing in solidarity with the Sanctuary 2014 movement. The coalition of faith and immigration communities gathered for a national teleconference to spotlight the growing network of congregations committed to offering sanctuary, and to challenge the United States government to stop deportations. Sponsors of the call included the PC(USA), Church World Service, PICO National Network, Philadelphia New Sanctuary Movement, and Chicago New Sanctuary Coalition.
